Awesome! OBDLink app (OBD car diagnostics) - works with OBDLink MX

ScanTool 426101 OBDLink MX Bluetooth/OBD-II Scan Tool Interface

This app is too cool. Purchase the ScanTool 426101 OBDLink MX Bluetooth/OBD-II Scan Tool Interface from Amazon and Convert your phone or tablet into a full-fledged automotive diagnostic scan tool. The Free Android and Windows Diagnostic software OBDLink app and OBDwiz are included with your purchase, free of charge! The app can be downloaded from Google Play as well. You can read automotive diagnostic trouble codes, clear the "Check Engine" light, check emissions readiness, estimate fuel economy and much more!
OBDLink MX Bluetooth is an easy-to-use, inexpensive, hacker-proof, lightning-fast Bluetooth OBD adapter that can turn your smart phone, tablet, laptop, or netbook into a sophisticated diagnostic scan tool, trip computer, and real-time performance monitor.
The ergonomically designed, small form factor device comes in frustration-free packaging, and takes an average of 3 minutes to install. The button on the back of the unit makes the connection process both easy and secure: unlike most other adapters on the market, MX neither broadcasts its presence, nor uses an easy-to-guess PIN to protect the communication link. A potential hacker would require physical access to the device, in order to connect to it.
MX supports all legislated OBD-II protocols, plus advanced Ford & GM vehicle networks (Ford MSC and GMLAN). MX works with all 1996 & newer cars and light trucks sold in the United States, and also supports EOBD, JOBD, and all other international variants of OBD-II. If you don’t require access to advanced Fod & GM networks, consider purchasing the ScanTool 427201 OBDLink LX Bluetooth OBD-II Scan Tool Interface.
The OBDLink app exclusively works with OBDLink MX. It will not work with any other brand of OBD adapter.
