  • Sorry, yes, OBD2 should detect airbag!

    By PMR711
    Thank you for your reply, in which you explain to me that „airbag has nothing to do with OBD2“. Now that explains me why your software doesn’t work - if you as the software developer don’t know that OBD2 is indeed the only existing interface for exactly this purpose and many other purposes and that is used by ALL professional car workshops to detect ANY error in the cars and to reset/erase ANY error code. As you don’t know that this is the case, no wonder that your software cannot know... For my purpose therefore complete waste of money and time!
  • Connection issues

    By apta
    I tried these 4 apps: OBD Auto Doctor, iOBD2, OBD2 Expert, and Car Scanner. The adapter I used is a Kobra Wireless that uses WiFi to connect to an app. OBD Auto Doctor connected successfully once but then couldn't get it to do so again after half a dozen attempts. OBD2 Expert was a no-go from the start since it wanted several $s to even get to the connection window. iOBD2 did not connect successfully. The only thing the app shows is a little banner while attempting to connect and then shows Connection Failure. Only Car Scanner was able to connect everytime and provided LOTS (183 sensors) of useful information about the car and, importantly, for free. Although there are very unintrusive advertisements on the bottom of the screen, one can upgrade to the Pro version for a donation varying from $2.99 to 4.99 - your choice!
  • Not Satisfied At All

    By ShelbyLt
    The description given of the “free app” is very misleading! I thought it would do much more than read codes. Also,the app did not connect the way the instructions said to, but I figured out how to get it connected. It is free, but they mislead you into expecting much more than a simple code reader. “Basic” won’t clear codes or show gauges as described! If they change the description I will be willing to rate them higher.
  • Not good

    Free version does not clear trouble codes. I will find another rap. Luckily I have a scan tool that I bought for $100 years ago that will suffice.
  • Expensive

    By ArnieNYC
    It’s great software but it’s a bit expensive. Especially when there are a lot cheaper options that will do just about the same thing.
  • Scam

    By Fejnoswal
    20 a year to have the “pro” features like resetting the CEL? A big scam if u ask me

  • Disappointing

    By Drs137
    No problem connecting with elm adapter. This app falls short in several ways. I have the upgraded version. I am updating this review to reflect my email corresponence with the developers of this app. My experience with them was quite positive. (1) The sensor data graphs stop taking data after 30 seconds and the trace is then slowly erased over the next 30 seconds, after which no more data is displayed. Update: This does not seem to be a common problem, nor has it been reported previously. I am using an ipad 3 running ios 9.1, so the issue may be due to this configuration specifically and in any case the developers were interested in addressing it. An ios issue is quite believable because I have experienced rendering issues in 9.x that were not present in earlier ios versions. For example, when zooming and panning on pdf files of schematics, lines disappear and get jumbled regardless of what app I use, which indicates an issue with ios 9.x in that instance. (2) It is impossible to overlap sensor data to make comparisons. Update: The developers informed me that this will be possible in the next update, so this issue is resolved. (3) The trouble code reset doesn't work properly. Update: This seems to also not have been previously reported, so again, it may be due to my ipad 3 and ios 9.1. The developers are looking into it. Overall, the developers seem to have taken my issues and suggestions seriously and I am looking forward to the update. I don't have any issues with the price and I would happily pay more for additional capabilities. I added a star to my rating based on my correspondence with the developers and will revise this again after checking out the next version.
  • Invaluable and outstanding tool.

    By madmax-ooohhh
    Simple and easy to use interface, and very good response. Best OBD2 scan tool app I have used so far.
  • Keeps losing Connection

    By Works A Bit
    Free version does next to nothing and constantly looses connection on GM and Ford, iOS 11.0.3 iPhone 7 and VEEPEAK Bluetooth. Why would I upgrade if free version keeps disconnecting?
