Ratings and Reviews
having used other scan tools (oem and others) I find this to be barely useful. I have tried it 4 of my own vehicles (all late 90s jeep and GM so the pids should all be readily available) and there is barely any data displayed. most of the time it can't even discover the correct available modules. there is a lack of customizability when data is displayed and you're forced into landscape mode.
with a little work this app could be the best in it's category but there hasn't been an update to it since I bought it a year ago
it would be great if it would auto detect and connect to the bluetooth obd connector instead of being required to manually connect in settings. also once connected it takes the app almost 2 minutes to realize it's connected. if I don't add the vehicle to my garage it won't let me do anything else with it. sometimes I just want to scan for codes without adding to my garage
Opened the app and it insisted on doing a firmware update. The UScan device never came back online after the update.
DO NOT UPDATE!
Before updating you need to carefully review the "improvements". It looks like they were added by a lawyer. Usability of the app is diminished in important aspects, including the fact that you cannot have the app running in a moving vehicle. So much for road testing intermittent issues. There are other issues introduced as well. As for the free add ons, if you are like me you paid for them long ago. I doubt I will be seeing a refund. I suspect this app is being end of lifed and we customers are being kicked to the curb. In any case we need to see the in motion and bluetooth changes go away. I buy a lot of automotive test equipment but Actron can forget about any future business from me. They just removed key functionality from a product that I own. By the way, I went to app support before posting here - there is no support under app support.
C R A P
Definitely does not do what the packaging claims it will do. It was difficult to even find the app in App Store. It loaded alright, then off to the cluster football of actually making the device sync and start reading codes! Well I bought it to see real time data, I have a cheap scanner to simply read codes. I already know what codes to expect! The clunky app acts like a crappy app. It only gives a two screens of information. No real time data, even when stationary. But you can’t move the vehicle while testing. Bust. That’s why I bought it. The display and the packaging made it sound like I could...
Will return tomorrow for refund...
