    Best OBD app I have found by far

    Wow, great product! It is so configurable where it should be! This app obviously started from the ground up for usability and user experience, and it shows. This is NOT the typical big company offering that promises a lot and doesn’t deliver. I really like the sliding cost scale too (I paid the most because this app is so awesome.) - The adjustable size moving graphs of parameters on the dashboard is brilliant. - As a mechanic, every professional scan tool I’ve used for over 20 years offers an automatic listing of all sensors/PIDs, but until now I have not seen this basic functionality in any of the other apps I have tried; this app offers a live feed of ALL sensors in one list view and I am confident I am actually seeing all of the sensors. That is the most important feature for being able to set up and scan, without first getting bogged down in configuration and guessing how to set up a dashboard. I’d like to see 2 things added to this wonderful app: - The ability to see MAP and pressure readings in inHg. This is what I have gotten used to in the USA for vacuum readings. - A dashboard template that offered a list mode... many parameters on one screen, text based, title on the left, value on the right, just like the All Sensors view. Note to developer: the contact email on your website is the default WordPress email, and does not get to you. I am unsure where to contact you for any issues/comments.

    Great flexible OBD II tool works with new Veepeak BLE+

    This app is free to try out and has the most features for a free OBD II tool, so it is worth trying out as there is no risk. It is very robust and flexible/customizable and works with various manufacturer devices. It works with the new VEEPEAK ODBCheck BLE+ (note the plus) reader I use on my Toyota Celica GTS. It lists all sensors on one page. The user interface may be simple (no fancy colors and icons and borders) but the program is solid and simple to use. You have to have the unit connected to customize dashboards which is not convenient but the customization level is amazing. This said, I ended up paying the developer the maximum optional in-app payment for the app. I can see a lot of thought and hard work was put into this app, but most importantly, I see it is constantly updated. This is very impressive and important to me. Keep up the good work!

    Amazing app

    I do a lot of driving and wanted a HUD for my car. The ones avail seem to be hit or miss. So I bought a Bluetooth ODB2 adapter. I paid $10 for an app that was highly rated. Worked well. But customization was limited and confusing. Downloaded this. Free. Having so much fun with this app. Easy to use and customization is so easy. Wish there were more dashboard templates or the app will let you customize the template layout or make new ones. One suggestion is for dashboard backups. Would like an export option to let you airdrop it to another phone as I have this app on 2 phones right now. I exported backup file using iTunes and imported it and it worked. But would make it so much easier to share dashboards. I paid for the upgrade. Worth more then it costs. Try it. It’s free. Then buy it. Because it’s worth it.

    OBD-II Apps

    I tried atleast 10 apps, for a Generic ELM 327-wifi dongle, which was the cheapest I could find. This App, had the options that most apps had (standard) and then quite a few more. Apps ranged in ease, of Setup. But this app, was Simple, and was able to fund my cheap reader on it’s own. Without doing anything besides selecting it on my iPhones wifi. Which was something you do with all apps, until phone auto connects after first setup. Love the amount of stuff you can change with custom dashboard gauges. More then most the apps. Buy it. And I recommend buying an OBD reference app, that is make specific to your vehicle to go with whichever app you choose. Even store bought expensive scanners, are vague as hell when you look up the erroe codes. Fixed my car, and saved alot of mechanic guessing.

    Scantool Software for wireless OBD-2

    Everyone that owns an OBD-2 platform vehicle & an IPhone. Whether Mac/PC !, the 10-15$ on a vehicle Diagnostics plug-in will help regardless of your experience levels. Cost is around 1/10’th that of bringing it to a dealer. There's no real excuse not to have one, and learning more about your vehicle.M simple yet potent devices rival that of the 60K$ scanners brought in to the Dealerships for OBD-2 vehicles enroute. Similar to all Computerized platforms, the c is limited to the Software that runs it. This Software works very well & uses lingo all can understand quite easily. I’ve had no issues with the Software, I’ve 7 ScanTools; are > 4K$, down to 50$ & now one of these (12$). Verify your vehicle is an OBD-2 platform (Many-95+, Ford-96+.). Look in your manual. Will not work with OBD-1 Computers, only OBD-2.

    The OBDII app for those who want ALL of the data and settings.

    I’ve tried my fair share of ELM327 compatible OBD2 apps over the past 6 years ago, and this one is surprisingly comprehensive. A lot of other scanning apps on the App Store are fairly limited in their feature set, clunky when it comes to parameter graphing, or force you to use an expensive poorly supported custom OBD dongle to access their scanning app. All in all, this app is worth giving a shot! Keep up the good work DEVS!! Maybe one day you can even give us some of the hidden vehicle/manufacturer specific CANBUS features available on some newer vehicles (climate control setting, radio setting, window up/down control from the app)!!!

    It works

    Tried out on a couple of cars and it worked great with my veepeak dongle so I decided to support the developer with a purchase. I’m happy that I could use the same dongle that I purchased to use with the beemercode app. Because I tried a few other apps that required a specific branded dongle. And being that I already had another dongle for my galaxy note that’s incompatible with the iPhone X I really wasn’t looking to purchase another one! And the best thing about this app is that it lets you try most of the features for free why not support the dev with a purchase especially being that’s it’s still half the cost of its most comparable competitor.

    Great detail for HUDs and hybrid cars!

    I came back to this after months, and was surprised to discover some awesome parameters to give me a live display of energy usage specific to my Prius. i configured one screen to show gauges for ICE, electric motors MG1 and MG2, HV battery, and both regen and friction brakes, all in the same units (hp). Low update rate of 2hz but still useful live data. Another screen has same parameters in strip chart format Another screen shows gauges with fuel consumption in several ways. This is more of a live dashboard display (10hz or more) and looks great on an old iPad mini (iOS 9) mounted on center console. A big green gauge shows my instant MPG! NOTE: the slowest rate sensor on the screen will limit updates of all gauges on screen. I believe this is an OBD limitation, not the app Some small requests would make this even better: - allow some gauges to scale backwards - e.g. range +100 to -100. This makes sense when trying to show battery recharge status - more layouts for iPad (6, 8, 10 up) - allow LED font for gauge labels - repositionable values for gauges Great app - thanks!

    Works Well

    Followed the developers advice and purchased one of the ELM327 Compatible OBD-II Scanners recommended by the developer (VeePeak). Followed the instructions to ensure iPhone and Scanner connected via Bluetooth and was able to monitor everything in realtime. Car Scanner is very good app and the free version worked without a hitch, so I upgraded to the Premium Version so that I can save all data from the different times I use the app. My only request of the developer, which he's probably already doing this, but would be to include more of the specific Make and Model profiles that can be loaded in the Settings portion of the app.

    Demo features not in real app

    I bought this and the plug in to read “Ethanol Fuel %” as it’s in the “Demi feature”. But it’s not a “Sensor” that’s available in the normal app or the “pro” app. It’s bait and switch. Get you to download it, think of I guess I have to pay to get that feature... Then you pay and it’s not there. The rest of the app looks good. But not what I need it for. Would like my money back or the demo features added... I see they responded with a BS answer. But I can’t reply to tel them they are wrong? Helpful... I can buy a $300 plug and play gauge that will read Ethanol Fuel % in the 2017 Camaro SS.... So obviously it’s not my car, but his app.... His app doesn’t even have the option out of demo mode, but it has others my car won’t read available... Why can I see them, but not the one I want. It’s bait and switch.... Just refund my money.

    Great support

    I was able to connect to the Dr. meter ODBII with no problem. I did get an error when setting it up the first time an option popped up to send to developer, which I did. Sv was quick to respond. Once I started the car I was able to set it up with no further errors. I sent an email to the developer asking if there was away to have more than one car set up for things like fuel tanks size, # engine cylinders, engine size e.t.c. Something like a profile. Again he as quick to respond and said it would be added in a later update.

    Excellent app

    Even as free version, this app had excellent range of connections to the car's built-in sensors. Specifically my Mitsubishi Lancer auto transmission fluid temperature appears in this app; didn't appear in 3 other apps I tried. 2 weeks in, I opted to pay for the Pro version as a way to compensate the developer for job well done. That's your choice; you could just continue using the free version. But if you like something, I think it is good manner to pay for it, especially after having tried it for free and decided to keep using it.

    Love it.

    Simple interface. And I was able to use it with my Carista. Tried it free for about a month. Loved everything but the ads, so I happily bought it. Months later, I love it even more. If you get creative, you can get some interesting results. I have a shift light and I was able to set the color and rpm for each light. I’m still discovering new ways to use this app. Developers: I would LOVE to able to see my current gear. I’d also be thrilled if I could monitor tire pressure. Add those two things and I’d say this is a 10 star app!

    The Complete Dashboard for My Prius

    Finally a complete sensor dashboard I can customize and use to record live data. My car has 597,000 miles now. The idiot “check engine light” is too non specific. I need to know if it’s on because my inverted pump failed or because the coolant valve is in the wrong position. I don’t want to be told my $1900 catalytic converter needs replacing when it’s really The ECM sending a false codes. This is my second one, I gifted my first one to a friend and may do it again if Veepeak can find an improvement to make!

    Easy to use and works great!

    I purchased a cheapo car scanner off Instagram that shipped from China and couldn’t find the link to install their app, so I got this one. I liked it so much I paid for the full version as a way of saying “Thanx!” to the developer. I have an ‘o7 Jeep Wrangler and if you’ve ever had a Jeep you know you’ll need to turn off your CEL often. Fast and easy to use with explanations of everything so save a trip to AutoZone, they won’t shut off your light anyways. This will :-)
