Lots of these are flaky. I bought a decently reviewed Topeak mini and it was unreliable, had thermal problems etc. Some of the software vendors have tweaks to try to compensate for poor protocol implementations, and some identify more and less reliable versions on their website. Dr Prius is one example, and I had good luck with their suggestions http://priusapp.com/obd.html including a different Topeak model. Some only work with proprietary software. Android only is very common in cheap Bluetooth devices, so beware. The wifi models haven't been good for me and tend to be battery hungry. Many of these can run down your battery if left plugged in, so watch out for that. There are now decently priced models that work with iOS Bluetooth, so I think it's worthwhile to pay an extra fifteen bucks so I don't have to throw the device away, or have it fail when I was buying a used car. That sucked. Then I threw it away.

According to Amazon this is the one I purchased in 2012. The label looks different, but my 2012 one is still fully functional. I use it with the Torque app on android.

Or... Just spend like $3-$4 on ebay, for an ELM 327 (or if there's a newer ELM)
A literal clone, with the same functions on the free apps on the android phonees.

I've had one for at least 5 years and it works perfectly with Torque. Buying another one as a gift. Thanks!

I paired this with the Torque app and it has been invaluable pulling codes and gathering real-time data. For me it came down to selecting the right apps. As for this adapter, i have no complaints and it has always worked.

Tons of similar products for cheaper price.
Ymmv on quality comparison, but claimed feature set for the price is not an amazing deal

Yep, I use my $3 ELM 327 from ebay, with the andoroid app Torque, and others apps
I have one for each car.

I started off with one of these. You can only scan engine and transmission code with ELM327.

If you want to scan all the modules, look into Launch CRP series or Autel AP200.

Not a bad price for the "name brand" of generic readers.
