It comes with an attached 6 foot OBDII cable for easy installation, and a built-in power switch to prevent from having to constantly disconnect the unit to save the vehicle’s battery. The KIWI Bluetooth is compatible with vehicles listed in the chart below and is extremely simple to connect your Android OS-based mobile device with a new Bluetooth connection.
How It Works
The KIWI Bluetooth is an easy-to-use hardware device which allows you to wirelessly connect your vehicle’s onboard computer (ECU) to your Android OS-based smartphone. The connection is made through the OnBoard Diagnostic port (OBDII) and is therefore only compatible with vehicles that use OBDII After downloading and installing one of the many applications found on the Android Market (Torque/Torque Free, aIOBD ScanGenPro, OBDroid-Pro, OBDroid-Free, VoyagerDash, sold separately), you can be monitoring your vehicle’s performance in no time.

Edit: I changed my rating to 5 stars. Device has been operating flawlessly over 3 years now. It is paired with my android tablet, works very well. Good way monitor my car original sensors through the ECU on the fly. Absolutely fantastic device if you are running OBDII fitted car with ton of sensors. Highly recommend!
Good for my truck though because they put the OBDII connection right above the gas pedal so it's nice to move the box away.
The PLX Devices Kiwi Bluetooth costs about twice is much, but it saves far more in reduced frustration and a very fast update rate. According to the manufacturer, the Kiwi updates at 10ms intervals and the fast refresh rate, along with Bluetooth 2.0, means that the data display is as close to real time as you're likely to get without spending a LOT more.
I had no problem connecting the device and both the Droid X and Torque Pro software recognized the device immediately. The on/off switch is very handy when you're logging a trip with the device. Just switch it off when you leave the car and flip it back on when your return to the vehicle. Make sure if you choose to leave it connected that you DO flip the switch; the OBD connector is powered at all times and I imagine the Kiwi will drain the vehicle battery if it's left 'on' for an extended period of time.
And while I'm at it, a shout-out for Torque Pro, too - it's the best of the Android OBD software by FAR and a real bargain at $4.95.
Changed phones to the Samsung Galaxy S3 recently (take that, Apple!). The Kiwi and Torque Pro work flawlessly with the new phone, although I must admit I forgot how to pair the Kiwi - thank you, Google!
This is considered the "premium" Bluetooth OBD2 reader, and I think that is well-deserved. There is an on/off switch, and a long cord, so you could semi-permanently mount it.
It should be able to read pretty much anything an OBD2 reader can read, though that will depend on your car.
The setup was painless...it just paired right up, and the data stream is consistent.
I use Torque on my Android, there are quite a few programs available now but to me it seems the best and most updated. I can switch this between my diesel truck and my wives gasser and it works great. I even helped a neighbor who had a check engine light on diagnose a simple fix for their car. This is really worth the investment if you don't like relying on a mechanic everything you want to diagnose something.
I would have rated this five stars but sometimes it won't sync up with my phone and I have to reboot my phone and unplug the PLX to get them to see each other, I chalk this up to Bluetooth finickiness, nothing we can do to fix it until a better version of Bluetooth standard is released.
