Until the invention of the award-winning GL1 cable, the low cost of do-it-yourself solutions was always accompanied by a high price: forfeiting your peace of mind. Now, for less than it would cost to visit your mechanic once, you can reliably diagnose engine problems, check for vehicle-specific recalls, and stream live performance data – using just the GL1 cable and the iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad that’s already in your pocket or bag. A variety of apps provide repair suggestions, layman’s terminology, and safety analyses to ensure peace of mind and money-saving insight.
The GL1 cable offers plug-and-know convenience, super-easy setup, and highly navigable apps with easy-to-read options and intuitive commands. Setup is as simple as downloading the app of your choice, plugging the GL1 into your vehicle’s OBD-II data port and into your compatible Apple device, and turning your car on. In moments you’ll have answers in the palm of your hand.
The GL1 can communicate wirelessly with any of these Apple devices:
|iPhone ||iPad ||iPod Touch |
|iPhone ||iPad ||iPod Touch 1st generation |
|iPhone 3 ||iPad 2 ||iPod Touch 2nd generation |
|iPhone 3GS ||3rd generation iPad ||iPod Touch 3rd generation |
|iPhone 4 || ||iPod Touch 4th generation |
|iPhone 4S || || |
The GL1 software will interpret trouble codes, find recall information,
and show special service messages about cars manufactured in or after 1996.
Find out why that troubling Check Engine Light is lit up, and turn it off with a few clicks. By diagnosing the problem yourself, you’ll know whether your vehicle needs a DIY fix (like tightening a loose gas cap) or a trip to the mechanic – where you’ll be armed with knowledge to prevent fraud. The GL1 software will even diagnose stored trouble codes before indicators light up on your dash, so you can fix problems early to lengthen the life of your vehicle. You’ll also be notified of vehicle recalls, service bulletins, and the severity of any Check Engine Light diagnosis. Automatic firmware updates keep the latest information at your fingertips., and the sturdy 5-foot GL1 cable charges your iPhone or iPod Touch while it’s scanning your car’s computer.
GL1-compatible apps can track real-time data from engine load measurements to accelerator pedal positions to incoming air temperature. You’ll save time and money, keep yourself and your family safe, and keep your ride in tip-top condition. Best of all, you can check your car’s health and function anytime, since the GL1 connects to the tool that’s already in your pocket or bag.
