    I got this to diagnose a P0420 code that my car had been throwing intermittently for about 6 months. I had it scanned at an auto parts store and got the initial code, but to get a definite diagnosis I would have had to take it to the shop for $45 an hour (I get a discount). I did some looking around for a scan tool, but I did some YouTubing and found these things that did all the same things for a fraction of the cost. I researched for a few weeks to find a good one, and this came up as one of the better low-cost ones and BAFX seemed like a good company so I got it.

    The tool came in a plain white box with packing peanuts, a setup and troubleshooting guide, and a tiny compact disc that I suppose goes in a CD-ROM drive (never tried it). The instructions were pretty good for getting a basic idea of initial setup. No issues with them at all. You need an Android smartphone or tablet to run the tool, and any smartphone or tablet will be fine (even older ones). Basically you plug it into the car’s DLC port (under the dash), wait until the red light comes on, turn on your Bluetooth, and search for the device. It should come up as some weird name or OBD scanner. To connect you put in the password 1,2,3,4 and that’s it. Simple. You need an app (this only works on Android, no iOS!) for this to work. They recommended Torque Pro, so that’s what I got for $4.99 (well worth it, the lite version is pretty much useless). There’s other apps this works with, but Torque is the best. Once the app is running, it go into settings and configure the adapter. It will connect and start transmitting info from the vehicle’s computer.

    I’ve been a professional in the automotive business for almost 20 years and have ASE L1 advanced diagnostic specialist certification. I can say that this is the best bang for the buck OBDII device I have ever seen. Naturally it won’t do a lot of things that the more expensive equipment I use ($20k+) can do, but for quick checks and watching limited lists of live data it’s very useful. I use the Piston app for Android, and this works extremely well with it – quick live data refresh rate, and good access to codes and freeze frame data. With other apps, I use it to monitor fuel economy in real time in my own vehicle. Nice job. I wish everything worked this well for the money.

    Good basic tool to use to pull codes, reading bluetooth to my phone is nice and works very well, I was able to walk about 20ft from car into the garage to read the program on my phone. I purchased the Torque Pro program on my phone for $5 to read the issues and works great, after you get the codes you can click them and go online to see a more detailed description of the issue, you can also send a copy of the codes to email or text. I did purchase an 1ft extension cable to connect it to since my OBD connection is a little awkward to get too. Just a couple notes after you read the issues do not clear the codes until you fix the problem, or think you have, also in no way is this like a professional mechanic code reader, they can look into things and levels this can’t, but this is a good basic reader to give you a heads up on whats going on, no surprises from the mechanic.

    This device works exactly as it should and for a great price. I downloaded the app they suggested from Google Play but ended up with another app that is free and has no ads called Piston. Piston is digital rather than graphic which I prefer and tells you all you need to know. There are much more expensive devices out there that don’t provide anymore information. This device does not do a couple things (ABS/SRS) that you would have to pay several hundred dollars to get in another device. For that rare or unlikely need you can have it done by a pro, or perhaps Autozone has the capability with their scanners and they do it for free. The thing that is really nice about this device is that it can be used at your own home or on the road if needed in a breakdown. And it can help you keep the mechanics honest. You can download the complete list that explains the error codes and save to a file for offline viewing on your smart device. Or you can get an app like OBD2 Code Guide and search for the error code. It gives you possible causes as well. I do not know how often the database is updated.

    Works as advertised. It gives my 1999 F150 several gauges I wanted for towing. Specifically, I now have cylinder head temperature, coolant temperature, transmission temperature (at two different locations), and torque converter slip. These are the critical gauges for towing a load close to the manufacturer’s max tow limit. So far, can’t get engine oil temperature — will keep trying.

    It does not run the battery down in any noticeable way when the truck is left sitting for a week with the Scan Tool installed. The scan tool seems to go to sleep after a while and only reawakens when the truck is started.

    Works well with the Android program “Torque”

    AWESOME. I got this because Channing, my M3, was in a snit and not communicating with the smog machine when I was taking him in to be smogged for registration purposes. In California as of 2015, I believe, you can no longer pass the smog unless your sensors are all green-lighting. I got tired of taking random trips into the smog place to see if the BMW drive cycle had completed, given that the vehicle doesn’t typically tell you if it has or hasn’t and like all things BMW, the drive cycles are somewhat complicated and while you might think you’d go through them in the normal course of driving your vehicle, you’d be wrong. A couple of the cycles require consistent driving with your foot of the gas at 40 to 60 mph, preferable staying within a 3-mph differential of the lower and upper limits of those two speeds. Doing this requires engaging your I/O so you have to do it on a road without lights or on the freeway. Anyone who lives in Southern California knows that speed limit signs out here are merely suggestions in the most ideal of circumstances so not very many people drive, even on surface streets, at 40ish or 50ish mph. That said, after taking Channing in to be checked a 3rd time and finding that the catalytic converter was still not green-lighting, I got frustrated and decided to take things into my own hands and ordered this pocket scan tool and downloaded the Torque Pro app. Well, one drive cycle through the canyons later, and all systems are go for a smog check. I cannot recommend this tool and the app more enthusiastically. This is a great way to keep an eye on your vehicle and potentially stay one step ahead of any potential fault codes or problems, just generally speaking.
