4 out of 5 eggsPaid for its self in 3 days

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.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Works perfectly out of the box. Good instructions on installing Torque android app and all!

Cons: Blinking light on bottom of module, even when car is off. I suppose to get you to NOT leave it plugged in all the time, maybe?

5 out of 5 eggsEasy & Works

Pros: -Easy
-Cheap
-Free app (if you like cheap) ;)
-Works (Got the error code in less the 2 minutes of opening the box)

Cons: -As far as I can tell to get full use of this thing you need to pay for the full app ($4.99 I think)

Other Thoughts: ^Doesn't matter to me^, I only wanted to know what sensor was pinging. Super easy to use and was very cheap. Hope it lasts!

5 out of 5 eggsnew toy to play with

Pros: Price, function, it found error codes my old OBD2 reader didn't, and as such explained the exact issues I am having with my car!!!

Cons: Software disc....
1) it doesn't have its own software it tells you to try several different ones
2) no autorun file recognized
3) text "read me" instructions are bad english at best making me think the person who wrote it uses english as a 3rd or 4th language not a 1st or even a 2nd.

the indicator lights on the adapter are VERY hard to read when plugged in since they face the floor... although this may be for safety reasons and not a mistake.

Other Thoughts: So I saw this and decided it might be fun to try it out... I got it and immediately plugged it in and started playing with my car. This found fault codes that my 4 year old OBD2 reader didn't which explained issues I am having with my car right now.

Lots of settings, lots of possible readings... the only thing I am unsure of and have found no clear statement about is if you can just flat out leave this attached to the OBD2 port or if you should remove it so as not to drain the battery in the car, etc...

5 out of 5 eggsBest OB2 BT scanner I have found

Pros: ***Works flawlessly with Android and Torque.
***So far, it is the best solution I have found, even better than some of the scanners that cost 5 times as much.
***Inexpensive, making this a great investment

Cons: ***Not compatible with iOS (Read 'other thoughts' below)

Other Thoughts: This scanner is not compatible with iOS devices, and while BAFX likes to blame Apple, it is really the fault of BAFX. Of course, this scanner won't work with an iPhone because BAFX apparently doesn't want to participate in Apple's relatively cheap MFI program, which would allow BAFX to incorporate non-BLE BT into their device to work with iOS (or they couldn't make the standard, which is worse). Maybe they can't meet the standards set by Apple, or maybe they don't want to pay the little extra money to join the MFI program which would bump up the price of each device by a few dollars. Maybe, just maybe, BAFX wants to sell iPhone users their much more expensive WiFi version that is compatible with iOS (and subpar). The other relatively simple solution to make this product compatible with iOS is to use BLE, since you do not nee to be a part of the MFI program to use BLE intigrated devices with iOS. At first, this incompatibility issue would seem to be the fault of Apple, but the MFI program serves an important purpose, making sure that the BT containing device is up to standard, both in quality and security. This product is so above par (as far as performance and reliability) compared to similar products -that a much higher price could easily be justified, much less the small increase in price that it would take to conform to Apple standards either through MFI or BLE. With that said, I still recommend this product and would even recommend it at a higher price, that is, as long as you have an Android device. I would not recommend their iOS compatible version that uses WiFi though. I'm not knocking any eggs for the Apple incompatibility because this product works flawlessly with Android and Torque Pro, even better than some of the more expensive scanners that cost 5 times as much. If you have an Android device and a non-ancient vehicle, then this is definitely the choice you want to go with. iPhone users can move along, as BAFX apparently doesn't care too much for the iOS crowd.

5 out of 5 eggsAffordable OBD2

Pros: $18 and connects thru Android based Bluetooth... even works with a old Toshiba Thrive with Bluetooth.. the enhanced Torque app was $5. You will need to enter your vehicle info, wt etc. so they can estimate torque.. Links up to my Samsung just like any other Bluetooth.. after it connects it takes a bit to establish download links and get the graphics running.. Maybe more than a fun toy..

Cons: none so far.. except I may have to buy another for the other car..

Other Thoughts: I bet this vendor got overwhelmed at the number of orders they received. Plus I suspect many were lost due to the small shipping package.. a small box would have been better.. Will try on my 2005 1 ton diesel next.
