X-tool iOBD2 OBD2 code scanner for iOS/Android Report

The iOBD2 WIFI or Bluetooth OBD2/EOBD auto code scanner for Apple iOS (iPhone, iPAD, iTouch)/Android is developed by X-tool TECH.

 

Iobd2 code reader isn’t only a diagnostic reader, this powerful little unit also provides data logging, and a great dashboard which includes your vehicles current MPG, RPM, and so much more. Following are basic information and review gathered to lead to a better understanding of the OBD?adapter.

 

?General Info.

 

iOBD2 software (for BMW, VAG etc) works with most 1996 and & newer model year cars and light trucks (OBDII & CAN)-domestic and imported.

 

Vehicle model:

1.1996 or newer North American cars

2.2001 or newer European Union cars

3.2004 or newer Asian cars

X-Tool iOBD2 OBD2 adapter Performance

The iOBD2 Performance screen allows you to test to see your cars acceleration, distance travelled, and a time – this would only be suitable for track (Racetrack Mapping).

XTool iOBD2 OBD?interface Dashboard

The iOBD2 Dashboard provides what a usual car dashboard would show, giving the driver the vehicles current speed, RPM, MPG. This section of the app would be great for those vehicles who do not have a trip computer fitted as standard. I know some of the older Ford drivers will love to have something like this in their Focus RS MK1, to keep an eye on the correct car temperatures and intake temperatures.

Rev and DashCommand iOS app, which is better for OBD?Scanner

There are a couple of iOS apps that wirelessly connect to ELM327 OBscan tool through an ad hoc network (WANET). The two most highly rated iOS apps appear to be Rev and Dashcommand. But which is the best to work with these OBD scanners? Let’s explore it.

NOTE:

Torque Pro is an Android based app to work with Bluetooth ELM327 adaptors.

Rev:

Rev is an application for the iPhone and iPod Touch to work with wifi elm327 scanners that monitors, displays, and records real-time vehicle data by communicating directly with your vehicle’s ECU via its OBD-II port.

Rev can monitor and record several vehicle metrics in real-time:

Detect Engine codes

Readiness Monitors

Freeze Frame Data

Vehicle Speed (including 0-60 time)

RPM

Fuel Consumption

Engine Coolant Temperature

Fuel Pressure

Car battery voltage

*Supported metrics are specific to vehicle make and model.

 

What Rev app cannot do:

Do not read VIN

DashCommand:

DashCommand is a touch screen friendly software app for iPhone and iPod touch and is designed to work with wifi OBD2 interfaces.

Detect Engine codes

Readiness Monitors

Freeze Frame data

Vehicle Speed (including 0-60 time)

Display live data (Timing,Coolant temp,MAP,Lambda,AFR,O2 Sensor,Intake temp, Ambient Temp, Catalyst temp, MAF, and Fuel Pressure etc)

RPM

Detect horsepower, torque or acceleration in real time

Monitor and improve your gas mileage

Fuel consumption

Skid pad

Race Track

Inclinometer

 

The Difference between Rev and DashComand based on customer’s feedback:

1) Rev app can read and clear DTCs. But DashCommand with OBD cable can read faults codes but cannot clear them.

2) DashCommand seemed to be a little better with real RPM’s, intake temps, coolant temps, timing, MAF, and MAP

3) DashCommand seems to be working harder to add nice little touches and features to their app. It support frequently update.

4) DashCommand has more live data options than Rev app.

5) Rev is currently priced at $39.99

DashCommand can be free download at uobd2.net.

Free download DashCommand app:
