Pros: Once configured it will accurately read and send OBDII info to a WIFI connected device and there are a variety of apps available for IOS that can display real-time conditions and error codes on your IPad, IPod, and IPhone. It can also be set up for a laptop by manually configuring and selecting the WIFI network and installing the appropriate software.
Cons: Requires that you enter and set up the WIFI network addresses manually. There is no IPhone app included and the Itunes store is hit and miss with compatibility and prices.
Other Thoughts: I didn't have any luck with compatibility downloading any of the free free apps on the app store. The app EngineLink appears to be written for this specific device and costs $5.99 on the app store. EngineLink displays the basic realtime parameters and is customizable to display specific codes in real-time on separate selectable screens. The functionality and features are in the software. The scanner itself just sends the codes to a compatible WIFI device which still has to recognize it and run whichever app you install.

This reviewer reports that his/her technical understanding of this type of product is High and has owned this product 1 day to 1 week.
Pros: The product does as advertised. You can purchase an app for a buck and it gives you plenty of options for retrieval or minoring of generated data. I was able to find a code that told me I had a speed sensor problem. Instead of screwing around with trying to fix the sensor I simply replaced it. I did this myself and with that it more than paid for itself. If you clear a nag light off your dash make use of what you bought, looking up that code and fixing the problem made my car run better and to boot I get better gas mileage.
If you purchased this product because you are to cheap to have your car tuned and placed on a dyno and female dog about it here I hope you throw a piston through you hood.
Cons: I have not found anything to female dog about in this space.
Other Thoughts: If you buy this tool use it. If you don't then don't write a sour review because your friend thinks it sucks.

This reviewer reports that his/her technical understanding of this type of product is average and has owned this product 1 week to 1 month.
Pros: Shipped quickly, did get responses when I complained about the Trojan in the software; however, useless.
Cons: Every type of anti-virus software is detecting a Trojan inside their software packages. Have been unable to find alternate software so far. Still unused after 18 months.
Other Thoughts: I have been provided multiple versions of their software and every single one contains a Trojan. The ELM327 is an electronic component made by a reliable company, so there must be a dependable piece of software somewhere. I have seen reviews mentioning Android, but I do need it for either Windows or Linux. I will keep looking, or simply buy a different brand.
