    The product delivers what it promises. It easily installed in Windows XP-Pro and Vista. It is by far better than many more expensive hand-held scanners.

    The included software is very basic though. I was impressed with their ad for the optional software that included real-time data logging and graphing. If there were a rating for this software, I would give it the lowest mark. It is extremely cumbersome and most features don’t work in real-time. Maybe because Scan Tool is very slow, using the ISO protocol, which my Nissan uses to communicate with the Scan Tool. I understand that it is much faster in cars using the CAN OBD communication protocol.

    I’ve got four Chevy’s from 2001 to 2008. Bought the OBDLink and ScanTool so I could work on them without having to go to a garage to read/clear diag codes. I’m pleased with the product. I use it with bluetooth for convenience… works ok.

    This tool is great, I have already fixed a 6 cars with this tool.

    One car, the Mechanics were ready to have it towed to the junk

    yard. Keep up the research, I bought the professional level software

    and it payed off for me.

    I ordered this to diagnose and clear a check engine light on my vehicle. I got a mechanic to do that before this showed up, however. The good news is I believe I’m well positioned to do what I wanted to do the next time it happened.

    The bad news is the install disk that came with the software wasn’t very helpful. I have a windows 7 64 bit laptop. The driver setup that came on the disk didn’t work. Of course, it didn’t say it didn’t work. But it didn’t.

    If you find yourself in that situation, the D2xx drivers at (…) are the ones you need to make this product communicate with Windows 7 64 bit.

    Once that was out of the way the product worked as advertised. It was able to show me the trouble codes (there aren’t any, so I can’t comment on its ability to clear them, but it’s supposed to be able to do that, too.). It could show me instantaneous RPMs and fuel consumption and plot those over time. A very basic software package, though much better ones are available.

    So then I tried to connect to the device over bluetooth. If you check the manufacturer’s specs for this device, it has a “bluetooth option”. It wasn’t clear to me whether this device had it or not. It appears to not have bluetooth. When just connected to OBDII, the status LED does light up (red), but it’s not discoverable over bluetooth. Too bad, that would have been nice.

    So, overall it seems to do what it says it does, but you need significant expertise to set it up, and the platform requirements are not clearly stated in any literature for this product. Driver updates are not available from the manufacturer. I had to dig through the install disk to infer what USB -> serial chipset was in use and get the drivers myself. Boo.
