5.0 out of 5 stars Works Like a Charm, August 10, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: goPoint Technology GL1 OBD-II Accessory for iPhone/iPod/iPad (Electronics)
Just starting out as a DIYer, I'd been looking into code readers but was put off by the price of many scan tools that can do more than pull the trouble codes. I was skeptical about this at first and spent weeks searching the internet for reviews. Then my SES light went on after doing some work myself and I finally decided to purchase this little cable. I couldn't have been more pleased.

Why I love it:

Totally easy plug and play technology. Plug it in to the OBD II port and the iPhone, turn on the car, the iPhone vibrates once it has made the connection, start the app. That's it. Awesome.

Reads and clears DTCs. So instead of going to a mechanic and spending $50 for him or her to tell you you forgot to plug a sensor back in (or your gas cap is loose), you can find that out yourself. Scan your car and clear the codes twice and this thing has paid for itself.

It DOES charge your iPhone--or at least provide A charge to your iPhone. If the iPhone is plugged in and you're not running the app, the phone charges. If you're running the app, the charge decreases, but very slowly. My assumption is that due to how resource heavy the app is, the drain on the battery is more than the incoming charge and so even though the phone is being "charged" you're still going to loose some.

All in all, this is a great little tool(/toy), and I look forward to it getting even better with updates to the app in the future.
