    The Tech2 units themselves and the software is mutally exclusive and a package deal where the software will only run on the hardware and vice versa. The eBay stuff is an OBD interface normally with dodgy Easter european software and is not Tech2. Tech 2 comes in a variety of forms: handheld (2 types that I am aware of) and a stand alone roll up unit (full Tech2 unit) etc..

    Now unless you paid well over 3K for a tech2 device (or over 2K on ebay)or nicked it from your dealership (sorry you may have borrowed it) you will have the OBD interface.

    Either way no it does not matter if the car is running or not.
