Exclusive OBDLink MX Wi-Fi Features
Maximum Vehicle Coverage
OBDLink MX works with all 1996 and newer cars and light trucks sold in the United States (except hybrid or electric vehicles). The OBDLink proprietary connection algorithm enables MX Wi-Fi to connect to more makes and models than any other scan tool. It also supports EOBD, JOBD, and all other international variants of OBD-II.
Exclusive IOS App and Diagnostics Software
You can clear the 'Check Engine Light,' read all diagnostic trouble codes and research them online, check emissions test readiness, and calculate instantaneous and average MPG. The app includes a HUD option. MX also includes the free OBDwiz diagnostics software for Windows PCs and laptops
Acts Like a Hotspot, Or Connect To An Existing Wi-Fi Network
MX Wi-Fi provides unmatched flexibility. Connect directly to your iPhone or iPad, or to an existing Wi-Fi network, such as your home network, a Wi-Fi enabled vehicle, or practically any device with a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot. MX even supports WPS mode, making it easy to securely connect MX with a WPS-enabled router.
Strongest Wi-Fi Security Protection
MX features WPA2 with AES encryption, a sensible precaution to keep hackers from accessing your car's network. Unlike generic Wi-Fi adapters, MX Wi-Fi does not use an easy-to-guess password, or display the password publicly, protecting the communication link. A potential hacker would require knowledge of the unique WiFi Key, in order to connect to it.
Battery Saver Technology
When you turn off your engine, MX goes to sleep and won't drain your car's battery. Its sophisticated triggers will wake up MX when you connect via Wi-Fi, unlock doors, or crank the engine.
Advanced GM and Ford Support
GM-LAN and Ford-MSC provide access to hundreds of additional parameters. With third party apps, you can enable convenience features (including remote start and door lock/unlock) on select models.
Connects To More third Party Apps
Allows you to use popular third party apps like DashCommand and Dash to unlock enhanced performance, cost savings, and social driving. obdCANex enables you to control door locks and remotely start the engine (on select vehicles)!
Up to 4x faster than the closest competitor. This increased throughput results in smooth, realistic virtual gauges and accurate, detailed graphs.
Why Should I Buy OBDLink Instead of a Generic Scan Tool?
While OBD adapters come in many shapes and sizes, most of them (apart from OBDLink) are based on the ELM327 chip from Elm Electronics. Nobody owns the ELM327 trademark, so the devices carrying this label may be manufactured by any one of the dozens of small Chinese factories. As a result, there is a wide variance in design and build quality.
More importantly, there are significant functional differences. While both devices are compatible with software and apps written for the ELM327, only OBDLink MX Wi-Fi 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. Having been engineered to provide exceptional data throughput, it accelerates apps by up to 250% and PC software by up to 300%. Experience faster screen updates and more graph points — an important feature, if you wish to graph multiple parameters or display a virtual dashboard.

Two issues for me: frequent disconnects around the 25-35 minute mark when used for continuous monitoring and occasional connection issues when waking up from sleep (it seems to lose the password or change the connection settings as my phone asks for the Wifi password again). When used for simpler tasks like reading or resetting the OBD codes, this should work just fine. In fact, barring the sleep/wake issue, it works really well monitoring for about 20-25 minutes. I purchased this before checking the support forums and did not know I was buying into beta hardware/software. Two “update coming” deadlines have come and gone and with my return window closing soon, I am sorry to say that rather than risk me getting stuck with this device
it will be going back to Amazon .
Things I like: reads additional parameters from my other car, no other OBD dongle I know provides this additional information (except maybe the kiwi which are based on the same chips); secured Wifi connection (not open like the clones), fast (dashcmd easily logs 15-21 entries per second with 370+ fields). The sleep/wake function should be here too except when the only way to get it to work when it gets into its funky state is to unplug and re-plug it back in, then it might as well not be there.
My advice: for those using Bluetooth capable devices with serial profile enabled (Android), stick with the Bluetooth model. For those using Apple devices and can’t use the Bluetooth model, wait until the connection issues are resolved.
worked until I shut the vehicle off to go into a store, when I came back out started vehicle, had connectivity issues again.
Note: just because your vehicle has an OBD II plug doesn't mean your vehicle supports everything this tool claims to do.
Please accept our apologies for the trouble you had with your OBDLink MX Wi-Fi.
We have found that if you keep MX Wi-Fi plugged in, you may have to power cycle it from time to time. Our engineers have made minor firmware adjustments to later generations of MX Wi-Fi helping reduce connection errors. We have been working with our Wi-Fi module provider as well towards a permanent solution. If you use an Android device, I recommend our bluetooth version of MX.
Our scan tools support all standard PIDs. Whether you can read all of those PIDs depends on what the manufacturer of your vehicle makes available.
We apologize for any inconvenience and we hope you'll try MX in the future.
They need to withdraw this product until they can fix the component quality problems.
Hmm .. I'll try my andriod tablet to see if it's possible a Nexxus thing. Connected fine via tablet and software worked fine. WTF? So tried again with phone and after several fails, it connected. Well, maybe a firmware upgrade happened behind the scenes? I'm not sure, but was satisfied for the time being. Few days later took to another car to reset the code and it all worked great. Past tense though, as now when I try to connect back to my truck, takes forever to connect, then once it does, the software says I have to register to continue to use it. I can't upgrade the app unless it's connected it seems which it won't do as it immediately disconnects after telling me to register. It's just a large circle jerk. Whoever designed the workflow of this item along with it's companion app, is a moron. My last scantool purchase.
