This is the free/basic version - it lets you get a feel for the application and lets you find out if it works with your vehicle / obd2 adapter combination; but may contain some small bugs including not working on some nissan/chrysler/subaru ECUs. The paid version has support for more vehicles and ECU types, looks a lot nicer, and works with more cars / trucks

The paid version has more features (HorsePower,Torque, 0-60 , quarter mile tests, graph data, map / track views) + no adverts and exra dial/display types! and better ABS / Knock sensor support, Transmission temperature support for some makes of car / trucks (GM / Ford, etc), and Turbo Boost on many more vehicles (including VW)

**PLEASE NOTE!** Any reports of hanging or freezing after quitting the app is due to a bug in the HTC Evo 4G and Galaxy Tab, this can be triggered by using the Pandora/Vlingo/Aldiko bluetooth enabled apps. Disabling Pandoras new bluetooth settings fixes the problem, but HTC/Samsung need to release a fix. Please contact their support and encourage them to fix, Thanks!

The pro version supports USB ELM adapters which are use 'Prolific' or 'FTDI' chips

* Update: A freeze/hang workaround has been found after a great amount of effort and is available in the full version in the General Preferences settings!

    It does work on devices without a menu button, took me a while to figure out but if you rotate the screen to horizontal there should be a little menu icon in the lower right hand side, at least that's how it worked on my 2012 kindle fire HD running cm10

    Bought a bluetooth ELM327 from China. Connected it, car ignition on, this app 'recognized' the hardware plus the protocol and BAM! we're in business in no time. I've used it extensively with no crashes or hangups. Recommended!

    I have a HTC One and you have to change in the settings what the right button does. You can make it a menu button just tapping and holding brings up all open apps. The app gives me readings for almost everything including error codes when my check engine

    Works great. Free always rates a couple stars. I'm using a cheap OBD bluetooth device and have had no problems.

    We don't really have the right to expect free software to be any better than this. It works well, is pretty easy to understand, and is highly configurable. The pro version ($) is even more configurable, but the free version does everything you need. Of y
