5.0 out of 5 stars Inexpensive. Works perfectly. Can't ask for more., November 13, 2011

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
After a $90 dealership fee to see what was causing a check engine light turned out to be a loose gas cap, I'd had enough. There's an Android app called Torque that will show what's causing a check engine light, look up the code and clear it if you want it to. It just needed a hardware ODB-II reader. After looking around a bit at some reallllly expensive ones, I saw this and figured I'd take a chance. It worked PERFECTLY. So for a $5 Android app and a $20 ODB reader, I'll never need to endure another stupid dealership fee again.

Notes: I have a 2008 Subaru WRX. The reader looks to work perfectly with it. The Bluetooth pairing code is 1234. It doesn't really note that anywhere in the accompanying paperwork (maybe it's on the small CD that came with it, but I don't have a CD/DVD drive so I wouldn't know). The reader will operate when the car is turned off. It probably doesn't use much juice, but I decided to pull it out when I got out of the car. And the Torque Android app is awesome. The PID read rate for this adapter is 15. That is all.

It says at the bottom of my review :/ It's 15, according to the Torque app. I don't recall what the bluetooth name is, something like ODBII, I'd have to check to be certain.

Do you remember which vendor you purchased from (there seems to be many)? Thanks!

Vandalay Imports & Exports, it looks like they changed their name to NessKo Imports though. They don't seem to offer it any more, their storefront URL is http://www.amazon.com/b/qid=1326392953?ie=UTF8&me=A361IDJ0XUVWXY

Thanks for the info. It seems that there are several versions out there without any distinguishing names/model, and it's hard to keep track of them. Too bad the vendor no longer sells it..
