2008 528i odb 2 Scanner Options?

Hi there! Can someone point me in the right direction?

Looking to purchase a scanner.

Need to check systems, reset codes, including Battery registration / replacement.

Difference between Foxwell NT510 versus iphone / android app scanners

I'm certain there's a previous thread discussion but had no luck locating...

please help.

Thanks in advance,

Dom

Lots of threads on this but I use the Carly app with my iphone. For what I have needed it does the trick.

I purchased the NT520 , newer model from the 510, and it has worked great. Bought from Ebay, $140 w/BMW software already installed. Quick shipping. They also have a newer model now the NT530, which will correctly scan the F series BMW's, in case you may need that. Other than that and a couple of other makes of vehicles it can scan, I don't think there is any difference.

Code Read using the Car Scanner

U0100
P2EFF
P2DEC

When I try to start the car it simply clicks but does not turn over.

I cleared the codes and now the car turns over and over and really seems like it wants to start! Not sure if it is old gas problem or what the problem is. The Car has been sitting in driveway for 13 months (July 4th of last year).
