Ratings and Reviews
Works well, just wish the Sensors can be recorded
I’m using the App with BT to the OBD adapter. Works well and there are no connection issues.
The one issue that I would like to see resolved is the inability to record the sensor data/graphs for post diagnosis analysis.
I would like to see multiple sensors recorded into a single .cvs or .txt file with the ability to export them to my cloud storage.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for the feedback. It is possible to record sensor values into a csv file, and send the file using email. If you need help, just contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Doesn’t log full trip, keeps disconnecting
This app will not log if you are not on the sensors screen. If you want to keep the log info, you have to email it to yourself, it won’t save to any cloud service you may have. Also, if you switch to another app then back, this app restarts and half the time will not connect back to the OBDII adapter. I am using the OBDLink MX+. I was going to buy the desktop version for my MacBook, but won’t be wasting the money since it probably has the same lack of stability as the iOS app. I paid for the year of PRO, but cancelled that so I don’t get charged again. If I had known there were these issues, I would have tried the monthly subscription, but wanted to save money and go for the year. An app that charges a monthly and yearly subscription fee should work much better than this one does.
In response to the developers response, I have another app that works fine in the background with the OBDII adapter. I have other apps that have no problem running in the background either. Also, logging is important to me. I have a phone that has no issue with storage, so having the option to have it log the entire trip and store it to iCloud or another cloud based storage platform shouldn’t be an issue. You could make it an option that could be turned on or off by the end user instead of deciding what we need.

I'm sorry for your experience. You are right about how the logging works, this is to preserve the resources of the phone. The app cannot do anything about the behaviour when you but it in the background. This is how the iOS works.
This app is absolute garbage!!! When it would connect to the Veepeak adapter that it says is supported it would only stay connected for about 30 seconds and then it would disconnect. I bought a monthly subscription and got absolutely no extras for buying the subscription!!! We tried to hook it up to 10 different vehicles at our shop and it would only hook up to two but it would always disconnect. Does not display very much mode 06 data and it definitely doesn’t decipher it. I could buy a cheap $20 hand scanner that would display more mode 06 data and it would decipher it. I would recommend the Car Scanner app from the App Store. It has tons more features and displays much more information for absolutely free. Thankfully I only lost five bucks on this app and I would recommend to anyone NOT to buy this absolute piece of garbage app!!! It looks like it was put together in about five minutes. Extremely disappointed in this useless app!!!
And NO, my adapter is not malfunctioning. We used seven different adapters and the app kept disconnecting from each one. So clearly this is a piece of garbage app and also it’s very clear that nobody likes this app. In fact they hate it. Just read your own reviews!!!

I'm sorry for your experience. It sounds like your adapter is malfunctioning.
