Great Product, Great Price – ELM327 Bluetooth OBD-II Wireless Transceiver Dongle Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week

Pros:
-Good price
-Small
-Seems sturdy (although I'd like to take it apart and see the inside)
-Software is better than I was anticipating
Cons:
-Might be too big for some cars? I haven't found one that has any issues though
-Some software idn't want to connect faster than 38400bps, but I didn't try very hard.
Other:
It's ELM327, so there's a wide range of software that will work with it.
The code for pairing is 0000.
Bottomline:
Buy it. It's useful, and cheaper than you'll find a simple standalone code reader (if that's all you want, maybe another product here is for you). I always have a laptop or my Nokia n810 (Carman works wonderfully with this), so I'm fine with it lacking a display, etc for the added features.
