OBD 2 Scanner and I phone 6

Recommended Posts

I'm looking for an IPhone 6 App that will deliver fault codes.  The reason being that I might want to find fault codes when I am away from home and I might not have my lap top with me.  I would also like the OBD plug to be a Wi-Fi signal generator, or Bluetooth, to avoid having to carry a cable. 


Can anyone recommend an App that they have found successful.


Thanks for reading.

For the reader, there are many and they are inexpensive. Check Amazon. I have the Dash Command app. It's pretty good.  I don't think it can clear codes, but I'm not 100% sure.


If you really just want something to read and clear codes, buy a regular code reader.  They're relatively cheap (around $50) and you can keep it in the frunk. To me, the bluetooth and wireless varieties are just novelties.

I have an app called Engine Link that works OK for reading and clearing OBD2 fault codes. I use it with a cheap wifi adapter I bought on eBay. Handy to throw in the glove box, just in case.

At the time I bought mine, Bluetooth devices like this wouldn't work with iPhones without Jailbreaking the iOS. I don't know if that is still the case, so you need to look into it if you take the Bluetooth option.

I have not tried it but I saw one on itune called "OBD Fusion" which looks very promising and it's very diagnostic oriented (approaching the "Torque app" on Android). It also supports mode $05 and $06.
