    I was excited to see the advanced options but ten bucks per year of each brand is pretty steep. I'd gladly pay twice the one model year fee for all of the years of that make. I have several of a single make in my family so it would cost me a fortune to be able to use the app to check out each one. Full Review

    Charging extra for brand specific diagnostic capabilities? Excuse me? I paid a HUGE premium for the hardware in the first place. Next time I'll just buy a cheap $5 adapter. Full Review

    I plan to buy the extension, but as I read, this is not support my car: Ford Focus MK2 hatchback (DA3, Sport, 2005) 1.6 Ti (Duratec, 115LE) Am I right? Can you extend the Option list with my car? Full Review

    Paid premium for the adapter, why i need to pay extra for the Ford? You can find better apps that cost less or free. I will not buy or recommend this adapter again. Full Review

    I've had this for a couple years now and think it's great. I used to use a Snap-on scanner until my cars became newer than my modules supported. Buy a Snap-on scanner module before you complain about this and you won't complain again. I've used this to diagnose/repair many vehicles (some not my own) and simply Google the trouble code, along with some simple troubleshooting, I've always successfully repaired the problem.

    Enhanced diagnostics are useless to me, since apparently Ford Mondeo (one of the most popular cars in the UK and Ireland) does not appear in list of vehicles, believe it or not. Nevermind the fact that I am simply not going to pay €9.99 for each and every year I may need to use it for, especially when it is probably the same additional enhanced diagnostics content that you are paying for in each instance, essentially paying for a license multiple times to use the same thing.

    This software and the corresponding device are super useful. I keep it in my glove box. I just took a trip 7 hours out of town and in the first two hours my vehicle had a check engine light come on. I was able to diagnose while driving and pop into an parts store and take care of my problem without ever having to pop into a shop. I do wish that this company had a product that supported two way communication and control. Full Review

    Great app. My car has almost no gauges on the dash so it is really nice to be able to monitor what is happening in real time on the app dashboard. Full Review

    1) MAJOR ANNOYANCE: custom Dashboard doesn't log or remember any session min-max values until Dashboard is actually displayed; forgets (zeroes out) all session max values if Dashboard is closed (say to view a report) and then reopened. i need min-max recorded and retained for an entire trip/session, whether or not the Dashboard is displayed. 2) needs OFFLINE ability to view & graph saved Reports & logs, in-app, instead of suddenly going data dead when disconnected. 3) I SEE NO NEW DECODES of all "Manufacturer Defined" INDIVIDUAL TOYOTA SENSOR "TID"s. 4) with latest firmware, app no longer updates cylinder misfires in real time - requires manual Mode $06 refreshes for correct misfire count display. 5) needs to be able to Dashboard any user selected PIDs (like Engine Misfires). 6) not reading *any* Toyota O2 sensors for Mode $05. 7) doesn't Dashboard AVERAGE (aka Trip) Fuel Economy (only "Instant" and "Lifetime" FE). way short of 5-stars for now...

    Thomas Williams Published date: August 18, 2017

    The app, paired with the OBDLink modules, works with most any vehicle. It does a good job of connecting and reading ECM codes. The virtual dashboard looks pretty but is marginally useful. There is no ability to change any ECM parameters or tuning. The app cannot read SRS or Anti-lock brake controllers. If your air bag light is on this app won't help you with that. This is far from a serious diagnostic tool. If you are racing or making vehicle modifications, this app won't help much. And also, if the app says there are no diagnostic codes, that doesn't mean the vehicle will pass inspection. So, it is what it is. Full Review

    Today I got OBDLink Lx through Amazon and tried to connect this app with it(Lx) for 2 hours in vain. My vehicle is Jeep wrangler(JK),2013. All I could do was nothing but getting disappointed. Every time I tried to connect them according to the manual, "connection failure" message annoyed me. Full Review

    Latest update, now DOES NOT CONNECT....times out every time I try to connect. Tryed uninstalling then reinstalling, unpairing then repairing. S8+ Tmobile running 7.0... Went to Scan Tool. Net ,looked and found the procedure to recover firmware in forums. Now working again. Maybe was an install issue on my part, but it did irritate the bijezus out of me. Full Review

    Hopefully the app will get better, my Obdlink does not shut down. Power light stays on and Bluetooth light stays blinking 24 hours a day. Mostly for looking at the pretty gauges. I think I could have done better buying the bluedriver scanner. Full Review

    Greg Sawin Published date: February 1, 2018

    Better than nothing and pretty flexible but the GUI could be improved and it needs a way to help find the guages that work for you. I'm disappointed they added subscriptions and that is the main reason I can't recommend this. For those that already paid for the adapter, this app is satisfactory. Full Review

    J Published date: September 23, 2017

    This app has great features for the dials and the ability to customize them. It's in another leave when it comes to the this relative to Torque. Unfortunately, the app seems to employ some damping filter to the real time gauge read outs that make the gauges much more laggy and viscous compared to the gauges in Torque I hope the developer can add an option for this... To bypass the filtering, and this app would be 5 stars. Full Review
