How does this work with the ODB device? It looks like the software is windows based.Be careful with the ultra inexpensive Elm 327 clones. I had 2. One was doa and the other lit up all the dash's idiot lights.
Generally, you get what you pay for.
I got an OBDLink with the Mazda Enhanced Diagnostics Add On. Here's what the company says about the add on, "The Mazda Enhanced Diagnostics Add-on adds dealer-level diagnostics for Mazda vehicles with model years 1996 - 2018. You can read and clear trouble codes from proprietary modules such as ABS, Airbag, Transmission, Body Control, and many others. You also get access to hundreds of parameters and sensors that are not available over standard OBD2." https://www.obdsoftware.net/software/mazdaenhancedaddon
My adapter is 4 years old. I leave it plugged in 24/7. I have an old cell phone dedicated to displaying the info I want while driving.
Its good to get a base report when new. http://site.lvhost2.com:82/car/OBDLink%20Diagnostic%20Report.html
Then one can compare the base report to what is currently happening.
An OBDII scanner has 2 main parts, the hardware and the software. One can have the best hardware scanner but if the software is lacking, the scanner will be lacking. Likewise, if one has crappy hardware, the scanner will be crappy, even with top of the line software.How does this work with the ODB device? It looks like the software is windows based.
