  • Good product

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    This product is easy to use... Just plug it in your OBD plug, activate your BT non your computer, install the softare, et voila!

    It's a generic chipset so it should work on every car using OBD protocol.

    Gives basic informations about your car such as engine RPM, speed, coolant temperature...

    Cons:

    It's a generic chipset! Don't expect to get everything from your car.

    I have a 1998 Dodge Neon and I can only retrieve the engine RPM, speed, coolant temp and some other things...

    But I can't get it to "monitor all". I can't retrieve the fuel tank level for example.

    Maybe a little slow... RPMs are updated every second approximately.

    OtherThoughts:

    As I had some problem using it with my laptop, I had to use it through my PDA...

    I connected the device to my PDA by BT. Then I installed GpsGate on my laptop and PDA. This software sends what it reads on your PDA serial ports (GPS, Bluetooth, ...) to your computer. Finally it writes data to virtual serial ports on your computer.

    Just configure your OBD software to use the virtual port, and you're set!

    But it is still slow...

    Bottomline:

    Good product. Does its job.

    It's not "complete", too generic, but you've got what you paid: an OBD reader and error code flasher.

    Buy it if you just need basic information about your car.
