Great device for its size and price – ELM327 OBDII Bluetooth Car Diagnostic Wireless Transceiver Dongle - Blue Reviews

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

Pros:
-Very inexpensive for what it does -Very small (I cannot see it sticking out from my OBD II port -Easily pairs with a smartphone or computer -Useful for reading OBD II codes with compatible software
Cons:
-There is no indicator light to indicate whether it is on or not -No other cons for this price...
Other:
I was very cautious when I bought this OBD II reader. It was the first day DX had it, and it was the cheapest and smallest I had seen so far, but it works very well with my 2008 MINI Cooper S, and the Torque app for Android! The only thing I have yet to see that other reviews on OBD II readers have commented on is a continuous battery drain, but the phone seems to loose connection when the car turns off indicating the module also turns off.
Bottomline:
This is an awesome product for the price! Larger ones sell on DX for $10+ more and do exactly the same thing.
