Product Description

OBDLink LX is an easy-to-use, inexpensive, hacker-proof, lightning-fast Bluetooth OBD adapter that can turn your smart phone, tablet, laptop, or netbook into a sophisticated diagnostic scan tool, trip computer, and real-time performance monitor.

Based on the best-selling OBDLink MX , the budget-priced OBDLink LX offers the same unparalleled performance, delivering up to 4 times as many samples per second as the closest competitor. The ultra-fast response times let you enjoy accurate, detailed graphs and smooth, realistic virtual gauges.

Consider purchasing OBDLink MX if you need access to the proprietary Ford & GM vehicle networks (Ford MSC and GMLAN) in addition to standard OBD-II protocols.

The ergonomically designed, small form factor device comes in frustration-free packaging, and takes an average of 3 minutes to install. The button on the back of the unit makes the connection process both easy and secure: unlike most other adapters on the market, LX neither broadcasts its presence, nor uses an easy-to-guess PIN to protect the communication link. A potential hacker would require physical access to the device, in order to connect to it.

LX supports all legislated OBD-II protocols, and works with all 1996 & newer cars and light trucks sold in the United States. It also supports EOBD, JOBD, and all other international variants of OBD-II.

Key Features
Maximum Vehicle Coverage Proprietary connection algorithm enables LX to connect to more OBD-compliant makes & models than any other scan tool (How do I know whether my vehicle is OBD-II compliant?) World's Fastest Bluetooth OBD adapter Up to 300% faster than the competition. Enjoy smoother graphs and real-time gauges.

From the Manufacturer

Connect With Your Car Like Never Before

OBDLink LX is recommended for Android & Windows PC

OBDLink LX can be used as a diagnostic scan tool, trip computer, logger, and real-time performance monitor. This pocket-size adapter won't obstruct driver legroom and features unparalleled performance, intelligent sleep mode, hacker-proof security, exceptional third party app support, free lifetime firmware and software updates, and a modest price tag.

Includes Exclusive Android App and PC Diagnostics Software

OBDLink LX includes the free OBDLink Android app, which works exclusively with OBDLink products. The OBDLink app is packed with outstanding features that make it easy to access, graph, log and export real-time engine data. You can also clear the 'Check Engine Light,' read all diagnostic trouble codes and research them online, check emissions test readiness, and calculate instantaneous and average MPG. Want more gauges? Create a custom live dashboard directly on your Android phone or tablet. OBDLink LX also includes the free OBDwiz diagnostics software for Windows PCs, laptops, and netbooks. ELM327 compatibility allows LX to work with dozens of popular third-party OBD apps and software (including Torque and DashCommand).

Why Should I Buy OBDLink Instead of a Generic ELM327 Adapter?

In direct comparison tests, OBDLink LX outperformed every competing ELM327 Bluetooth OBD adapter, delivering up to 300% more data samples per second. The unparalleled response times let you enjoy detailed graphs and logs, plus ultra-smooth, realistic virtual gauges. More importantly, there are significant functional differences. While both devices are compatible with software and apps written for the ELM327, only OBDLink LX has overvoltage protection, which keeps it from catching on fire during a load dump condition. It automatically goes to sleep when not in use, saving you the trouble of dealing with a dead car battery. Unlike the generic ELM327 adapters, LX Bluetooth uses strong encryption and neither broadcasts its presence, nor uses an easy-to-guess PIN (‘1234’ or ‘0000’) to protect the communication link. A potential hacker would require physical access to the device, in order to connect to it. OBDLink LX ships in a nice retail box, with a 3-year warranty, and lifetime software and firmware upgrades. In summary, OBDLink provides the absolute best value for your money.

Did you know that your vehicle can tell you more than your dashboard is telling you? Since 1996, all vehicles in the US are required to use On-board Diagnostics II (OBD-II), a method to not only diagnose issues, but it can tell your vehicle’s speed, engine temperature, and more. Thankfully ScanTool has made the ScanTool OBDLink LX, as an OBD-II capable of performing these tasks and much more.

▶ Package Contents
• OBDLink LX Bluetooth
• Quick Start Guide

▶ Specifications
• Dimensions: 1.97 x 1.77 x 0.91 inches (51 x 45 x 23 mm)
• Weight: 1.2 oz. (33 g.)
• Operating Voltage: 8-18V DC
• Operating Temperature: -4º to 131º F (-20º to 55º C)
• Operating Humidity 10 to 85% (non-condensing)

▶ Hardware
The product is small, as you would suspect, at 1.8 x 2 x 0.9 inches, and comes in a green/black color. On the front are icons and LEDs for Power/OBD/Host/BT, a button to pair the device, and the OBDLink LX name. The top of the device has the ScanTool logo, and the back has the OBD-II connector to mount into your vehicle. This device uses Bluetooth technology and Bluetooth technology only. If you do not have a Bluetooth compatible device then I suggest looking for one with a USB connection.

Now, there are several OBD-II connectors out there, and that is where you are asking, “Why would I pay $69.95 for one when I can get a cheap one for under $20?” This device includes an OBDLink Android app that is comparable to torque ($5 USD Value), and OBDwiz PC Software ($30 USD Value). Not only that, but this device uses very low voltage, uses premium security, and performs 300% better than its competitors. If a potential dead battery doesn’t change your mind, then the security and performance should.

If you've ever been suspicious of some auto mechanic's diagnosis of a failure of your automobile - this device will help eliminate future such occurrences! This diagnostic tool (coupled with the android compatible app - downloaded from an on-line application provider) provides the user with nearly every possible operational aspect of the users vehicle. It utilizes the same diagnostic port located in your car (which mechanics plug their very expensive diagnostic machines into, when you take your car in for a repair.) The device fit easily, and snuggly, into the diagnostic port the very first time I tried it. The instructions were clear, well written and very comprehensive (even including additional internet links for additional apps and manuals!). I engage this device (and the app software on my cell phone) every time I start my car. If and when something goes awry concerning the operation of my vehicle, this device alerts my cell phone, and the alert is instantaneously displayed on the cell phone screen - a safety factor that is indispensable to the operation of my car. I strongly recommend it to anyone,.

This was one of the pricier bluetooth-enabled OBD scanners, but came recommended from the makers of the Dash app for Android. I've been using it to monitor my daily commute and I am absolutely pleased with it. I haven't had any syncing issues that I feared I might. It seems to be kind to my battery as I keep it plugged in all day while parked and have yet to need a jump. I've also thrown it into my wife's car for a road trip and it had the same results.

Very rarely do I rate anything 5 stars and when it comes to a tool that makes claims such as the ScanTool 427201 OBDLink LX Bluetooth OBD-II Scan Tool Interface, I am incredibly skeptical. I believe that every product needs to be represented with the utmost accuracy, leaving much to be desired from today's marketing and advertising professionals.

I have two vehicles that seem to communicate with each other. Both engine light indicators came on within 3 days of each other. Conspiring, I know, and in turn I looked for a solution rather than being out one vehicle per week for three weeks and be out at least $180 in just diagnostic charges. With that said, I turned to the Interwebs for a solution. In coming across the ScanTool website, I was intrigued equally with suspicion.

I must have called 4 auto stores, 3 friends that are car enthusiasts, and a bevy of other people in forums with no one ever hearing of this product. As such, I decided to conduct the test myself. I purchased the ScanTool through Amazon and it arrived the next day. Then the real test began.

I removed it from the package, which was nice to see that it was modest, not overly flashy, and the tri-fold instructions. I was pleased to see that I was able to load the software to my laptop, Android tablet and phone all at no extra charge. Rounds 1 and 2 go to ScanTool. So far so good.

Test one, stopwatch started. I followed the instructions to the letter and in exactly 2 minutes 10 seconds I had the OBDLink tool connected to my tablet via bluetooth and the codes reported. The software interface was very easy to read, plain to understand the code report, and to my delight, ScanTool's claims were true to their word. Round 3, ScanTool.
