Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
•Plugged directly to and fed by OBD II connector
•Compatible to lots ELM-327 application software
•Was running 15 min after Bluetooth Win Vista Install
•The software accompanying the unit is quite useful and easy to use
•Supports bluetooth connectivity
•The price! No shipping costs!
Cons:
•Might be difficult to connect on some cars because is a wider / broader than a standard OBD-II connector
• I am still trying to make it work on a Chevrolet CAN bus, it is probably my mistake.
Other:
An OBD-II extension cable should be provided as an option
Bottomline:
I do not regret buying this as this is the cheapest car scanner one can possibly get. This is a good start for people who hasn't purchased a auto scanner yet and it is highly recommend!
