Scanners are complicated. And I am not the most qualified person to be trying to explain them, especially in such a limited space as a review on Amazon. But I will try.
I categorize scanners into 4 categories.
1. Basic Scanners- These get Codes and Erase Codes. They are very cheap.
2. Generic Information Scanners- The 'Standards' (laws/rules) require a LOT of information be available to ALL scanner manufacturers, without any additional payments to the auto manufacturers. This info includes codes, freeze frame, clear codes, data of sensors and actuators, and the state of the onboard monitors. This information is available to all, for free. All you need is a generic scanner to access it.
3. Vehicle Specific Scanners- These get all the generic information, but also get information for a specific vehicle. But this has to be paid for. That is why Snap-On Scanners cost so much. They have to pay the manufacturers for the additional information. And it is worth it to a professional. With these scanners you can access all the modules...Body, Transmission, Instrument Cluster, Tire Monitors, Anti-Theft, Auto-Temp Control, Lighting Modules, and MANY more. You can make the car do its own testing...like of the EVAP system, or on Fords, do a complete system test. You also get diagnostic information (built into the scanner), that is vehicle specific. With the Generic, they give you lists of what MIGHT cause the problem. With vehicle specific, it tells you what to check, the color of the wire, and in what order to check it. A big difference. Every car is different, but the difference between Generic and Vehicle Specific scanners is ENORMOUS.
4. Manufacturer Specific Scanners- Each manufacturer has its own specific scanner. The manufacturer (the car dealer) is the only one authorized (by law) to re-program their own computers. There is a big heated debate about this. But for now the thinking is; only certain trained individuals, at specific known locations, are allowed to do this. They want to keep close track of this. (I used to do this.)
5. Trip or Drive Loggers and Planners-Not really a scanner (in my view), but these do access information from the OBD 2 connector.
This KIWI device is what I figure is a Generic information scanner, with a Trip/Drive Logger add-on. It actually shows quite a bit of information. And the graphs are very nicely done. I actually like this thing, even though many of its functions are still being worked on. (To be added later it says.) I honestly do not know if any cheaper devices will do what this one does (and I don't feel like experimenting), which is why I have decided to keep it.
But what I wanted was a way to supplement my Snap-On scanner. You see...the vehicle specific part of the Snap-On scanners only works up to the year they are currently updated to. So if my scanner is updated to 2015, I can only do the specialized diagnostics on vehicles up to 2015. Anything after that, I can only do the Generic capabilities.
When I received it - I plugged it in to my Challenger RT/ScatPack and it gave me everything I needed, plugged into my Ford F-150 and my Toyota Sienna and was pleasantly surprised by the data / info I was getting. More importantly - I was getting this data via three popular programs I was able to download for free.
This KIWI 3 that works with awesome free programs has saved me big bucks as it has diagnosed two issues on my vehicles already. Had a bad pressure regulator on my Ford, then last week a bad coil on cyclinder #1. Parts cost me less than $100 for both and 30 minutes of my time.
If you don't want to throw money away to a mechanic on issues that can be resolved by a handy person - this purchase is must and a NO BRAINER!
Ok, for the rest of the crowd, a more detailed write up. I am a new Diesel owner and wanted to have a better understanding of what was going on with my car.
I wanted a Bluetooth version simply because my wife hasn't been able to screw up a Bluetooth connection yet and I wanted it to be easy for her to use. The issue I was running into was the vast majority of devices that work with Apple are only wifi. Since we are still currently using iPhones and on contract for the next 6 months my choices became much more limited. When adding in I wanted control over which app to use I had very limited choices. Fortunately, this was one of my options and after a bit of research I bought two (one for my wife's F250 and one for my Excursion).
When opening the box you see they really are compact things. You can see by the tapered shape they only will fit one way, and a quick google image search turned up placement location (which fortunately was the same in both vehicles). It's below the driving wheel more to the right hand side. I included two pics just so you can get an idea of location and how it doesn't impact driving at all.
So next was using it. Simple as starting the car then opening my app. I included a couple screen shots off of my phone of the app connected while the car was idling.
Now, we have cleared two error codes on my wife's F250 which easily paid for both devices. But the best part was seeing my wife's confidence soar after using it for herself. She had an error code about the turbo. Turned out to be a dirty filter that didn't get replaced, but her having an idea of the issue going in made her feel much more confident.
I also took the one from my Excursion and used it in my dads Chevy. The device had no problems connecting and feeding me his cars information.
Whether someone that just wants to have a better basic understanding or someone that wants to set different ratios so they can see if they are getting the most out of their car, this is a worthwhile pickup.
I use it to display my car parameters to my Pioneer Avic-5000NEX radio display using Dashcommand app as it works with app-radio.
Completely happy with this product after a month of use.
