I purchased this product knowing that it might not be the best Bluetooth OBDII interface on the market. I use it to interface with Torque on a Motorola Droid.
The product is housed in hard plastic and seems very well put together. It does not seem prone to breakage and easily survives drops of five feet to solid pavement with minimal cosmetic damage.
As for connectivity I have not experienced any interruption while driving with the phone fixed to the center console (approx. distance from phone to device no more than one meter).
I have not attempted to use the software that came with the device. In fact, I'm fairly sure that I've thrown it away. Torque is well worth the extra few dollars and having logs on hand in the phone that I use day to day is useful.
I've used this product to read codes for several family members although this service is provided for free by many automotive supply outlets. Combined with an iphone or android based phone and good software it provides data readouts which in my opinion makes it well worth the price. It's also nice to know that with the same software one can increase gas mileage by improving driving efficiency.
Overall I rated this product as five stars because it is inexpensive when compared to other devices and serves it's function admirably.
