paid for this 3 years ago and have not been disappointed! It is universal, so don't expect to find your car listed. I use it on a Mercedes-Benz and a Dodge, so I think you will find it very flexible. Once connected to the OBD bluetooth adapter, the dashboards are every bit as responsive as the actual dashboards in the car. But more importantly, this app gives a LOT more information. And, yes, it will reset your check engine light, and tell you what the problem is. VERY USEFUL and what a value for the price!!!!!

It's a good app to record data. You just have to keep the app running in the background every time you drive which is a little annoying. I recorded data on the app and I tried to export the file and it crashes every time! I hope an update helps with this. I already tried contacting support and no one replies... Overall, great app for data, but my problem needs to be fixed for me to change my rating on this app.

Pretty good for diagnostics. Gas milage and trip computers are really good...EXCEPT the app doesn't run in split screen or in the background. It stays connected to the obd2 sensor, but doesn't calculate milage or trip. Because of this, simply switching to quickly check a navigation app or take a phone call can cause discrepancies of 10+ miles between fill-ups which drastically lowers the accuracy of MPG.
