I think this app is great! I've been using this alongside Torque for a couple years now. Everyone keeps comparing this to Torque. Torque is better suited for tuning, logs customization and advanced operations. This app's "no nonsense" design makes it easy to quickly run diagnostics. I can pull codes and check readings on a whim, and I often do. I don't wanna have to setup every vehicle I plug my Mx to just for battery voltage. I highly recommend this for the sake of simplicity.
If there was any information on how to actually use this app (where are the log files stored? How do you start/stop logging?), and it didn't have the goofy registration... it would probably be pretty nice. It pops up a dialog saying I have to register before I can continue using it (really? it is free software), but I have no WiFi connection in the car. It also says I don't have to be connected to register; but with the tablet in the house and a good WiFi connection...there is no menu entry to register it. Brilliant.
Good, but unstable. Freezes every 10-20 minutes. More customizable features would benefit it greatly: e.g. analog gauges could be not just full circle, but semi-circle. Templates are saveable, but NOT loadable!!! Why should I save a beautiful gauge template if I cannot use it again for other gauges????
I love having control of my vehicles maintenance & possible issues. This app coupled w/ the ODB device is superb in understanding the issues involved & I don't have to depend on a mechanic to be honest. In fact, I am now weeding out the dishonest mechanics w/ this. It's excellent.
Like I of the othèr posters mentioned this update literally makes the ODBLink LX practically worthless. The previous version allowed resetting the codes with the engine off but with the vehicle moving. Additionally the app no longer resets pending codes. This update is a useless piece of crap.
App no longer allows to clear codes while 'in motion" and it used too. I find myself using other devs apps now like torque because they don't restrict features based on motion.
- Added a firmware recovery utility that can be used to load firmware on devices with invalid firmware.
- Added a preference to not show the communication error dialog.
- Fixed a bug that could case "Loading vehicle data" to appear when the app was running in the background.
Check/clear engine codes, view performance data, fuel economy, customize gauges.
