Lots of extras in this one! Bought to work on friends Nissan and my own Ford because of Enhanced capabilities. Was pleasantly surprised to find GM CMP retard PID for my 2001 Blazer (vortec v6) is here and functional! If you can't see the good in this software and figure out how to use it then you should not be working on cars. I'm using BAFX Bluetooth adapter from Amazon. I also have Torque Pro. They both have their plusses and minuses. This Car Gauge Pro is the most complete I have found for Android!
This app saved me a ton of money diagnosing a problem with my Ford Super Duty Diesel engine. It performs most of the tests that the more AutoEngunuity software can do, at a fraction of the cost. The interface isn't as refined as its competitors. And it only works with high quality Bluetooth based ELM adapters - cheap units won't work! Doing the diagnostics is a bit backwards, but it performs the tests well. Totally worth the money if you need portable diagnostics on your Android phone or tablet.
I bought this app because I wanted to buzz test my Ford Powerstroke diesel. It will connect to the generic OBDII interface but when I put in "Ford" and "Powertrain" the app automatically resets the connection to the adapter (I've tried two) and never works. Interface is horrible. Waste of money.
Cant run self tests Will not nut self test with my bafx obdII. The only reason I bought this app is for the buzz test. Cant get it to link up to run any tests. All i can get it to do is run gauges, which I could get on a free app. Will any obd scanner work with this app? Ive seen videos of people using cheaper scanners than the one i have to do tests. But it looks like ur apps been updated since those videos. Maybe your update just sucks.
Horrible user interface I didn't think the user interface could possibly get any worse, but the last update proved me wrong. It is by far the LEAST intuitive UI I've ever seen. It takes far too many steps to accomplish even the simplest tasks. The up side is that after you invest far to much time in figuring out how to use it, it does work. This could be a 4-5 star app if it was easier to use.
Doesn't do half the things you need it for. The app claims to do alot of functions, like buzz tests on 6.0l powerstrokes. Well it is unable to do it, and cylinder contributions test either. So what it does for 9 bucks is nothing more than you can get for free. The developer is way cool tho, he did everything he could to help me. Even sending me an app that would at least do a buzz test. But its alot of hoops to jump thru, and the interface is less user friendly than others.
