This could be really good!

Recommended Posts

Came across this today, going to download and check it out tomorrow, looks really promising. 

BMWhat-BMW diagnosis

From the limited number of reviews it doen't look like it has been around for long.

 

I already use this https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.prowl.torque&feature=search_result#?t=W251bGwsMSwyLDEsIm9yZy5wcm93bC50b3JxdWUiXQ. (Android only) to monitor the engine ECU mostly to monitor my coolant temeratures as it's so much simpler and more convenient than the hidden menu method, plus it has some neat associated camera features too. 

 

You need an ELM 327 OBD bluetooth device to use both of these App's but there are plenty to choose from online, mine is this one http://www.obdkey.com/index.asp

 

Anyone else tried this yet.

Looks like a good find and could be just what I need as I have an intermittent fault that often leaves me stuck until the code clears

So £90 for the OBD key

and then £3 for an Android app ?

Very expensive, but if you are going to use it over several years, maybe a good investment.

Looks like it uses Wifi not Bluetooth.

ELM327 Wifi devices can be picked up on eBay for < £30

 

 

From the limited number of reviews it doen't look like it has been around for long.

 

I think the £35 price tag for the software alone has something to do with the limited reviews!

 

Not for me at that price.

Wouldn't want the ELM device plugged in continuously either. Thinking Security, battery and physically knocking it.
