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

Pros:
Excellent build quality! This unit uses state of the art surface mount technology, in a design that looks well engineered and constructed.
Reads errors (I had none) and some live engine params. Very nice!
Cons:
The software is very basic. Software with more functionality is a bit expensive.
Other:
I have found the documentation to the ELM327 protocol (using AT commands) and with some programming skills you can do stuff yourself!
Bottomline:
I can definately recommend this unit for anyone who has a supported OBD2 equipped car and a desire to read/reset error codes and and more.
