Fixed an expiration issue
Ratings and Reviews
Works fine - but repeated “this license has expired”
Like the app which I’ve had for 4 years now on my iPhone.
Just the past 2 months been getting a irritating error message stating “this license has expired” even though I’ve paid for the license and it’s not expired. Every time this happens I have to go to AppStore and click open Dashcommand to then see the same error message, but then try again AppStore to see the Dashcommand icon which says UPDATE and it downloads some update and the error goes away. Fix this soon guys please!!!
Great app if you understand the language.
By trade I’m an electrician. With this app I’ve been able to identify problems, monitor and log different systems in real time and also save and export the files via email. When I went to buy the extra package for the make which my vehicle associates with, it advised that for my model it was not necessary to spend the extra money as it provided no benefits that weren’t already available with the current version of the app. Now it’s one thing to be able to hear your car talk to you and it’s completely different whether you understand what it’s saying to you. I’ve saved thousands of dollars in mechanic fees by researching how to identify issues and how to fix them. The app just gives you access to what a mechanic is given access to when diagnosing an issue. But the app won’t make you or anybody for that matter a mechanic or able to understand and solve their own problem. At least it can help you to not get ripped off by a mechanic with ghost problems. But it won’t keep you getting ripped off on the service fee for the quality of service received.
Works as advertised
Many others have explained why this app is worth buying. I'm writing to contradict two negative reviews. One said you can't get back to the main menu after activating a dashboard without shutting down the app and restarting it. Not so. Just tough the screen for two seconds and a menu will appear that allows you to return to the main screen. Second, someone said it doesn't work with vehicles after 2014. Also not true. Works fine with our 2016 Subaru Forester. The database that comes with the app doesn't include vehicles newer than 2014, but you can manually input model information and parameters for any newer vehicle. One minor quibble: the gauges on a couple of the dashboards are too small to be legible on an iPhone 6, but you can access the same information in other ways. A fine app. Works flawlessly with Amazon's recommended Foseal OBD II WiFi dongle.
