Besides this Xtool IOBD2 Bluetooth can show me a distance travel time, average speed, totally mileage and oil consumption. That’s good!

And it seems to have many other data options available, but no test.

In a word, this XTOOL OBD2 Bluetooth scanner is good for analyzing engine data. And it may help do some daily diagnostics. I think it’s worth the price.

Pros:

  1. Simple to use and install, most cars have an ODBII port below the steering column
  2. Engine data galore
  3. Well made companion app

Cons:

I would have preferred that a random Bluetooth PIN code, printed on the unit so you had to see it to connect to it. But still works just fine.
