    I know hardly anything about live data, and I could use some help figuring out the basics. Hopefully numbering the questions will make it easier to read this thread and easier to answer one or more questions.

    1. Approximately what does it cost to get a shop to run live data?

    2. Can live data be saved and stored on a thumb drive or computer (I'm thinking as comma-separated values (CSV) spreadsheet files, that could then be charted)?

    3. Can you get an OBDII-to-USB cable and download data to a desktop or laptop computer?

    4. What are the basics of using an inexpensive live data "dongle"?
