Default DIY Oil Change/ Service Required Light

Just bought a used 2011 HSE LR4 in September. Got an amazing deal on it. Loving it so far. Wondering how to get rid of the "service required" oil change light, for a diy oil change. Searched the internet and see I need an IID tool to clear it. I am trying to just ignore the light, but I would love to just clear it. What is the cheapest tool I can buy to get rid of it? I was hoping someone would suggest one that they personally know works for sure. Thanks for helping a newbie out!

iCarsoft i930 clears it, and is a scanner meant for LRs.

Thanks for the input User and DavC. I went ahead and ordered the iCarsoft i930 since it was only $114 from Amazon. If I am not happy with it, will probably go ahead and invest in the GAP diagnostics. Thanks!

Are you sure that the icarsoft930 clears it? I just bought one and updated the software. I can not for the life of me figure out how to remove the "service required" warning. Thanks

My 2011 has had the "Service Required" notation on since 23,000 miles, am at 89,000 miles, only shows on start up. Dealer wanted to reset IF I let him service it. He has no tech/mechanics with 14 yrs experience, so I told him no. He tried to convince I should use him, then I showed him my service book and said I have 14 yrs experience. Doesn't bother me it's on as it only shows for a few seconds on start up. I do all my own work starting with a 96 D1 and an 87 Classic Range. Been thru these and a 96 P38. Kind of regretted the trading the D1 nice and uncomplicated.

Just to update. I got rid of the "Service Required" message. Used the following scanner from Amazon. I needed a new scanner anyone, so I was happy to find one that would clear the message. I did need to load the update before I used it, but can confirm it worked.
