OBDLink MX vers Clones (eBay, Amazon and Chinese stuff)


I get a lot of questions about why should I buy a $ 150.00 device, when I can get a similar one on eBay for $ 30.00.

 

Pourquoi acheter un lecteur de $ 150.00 quand je peux en avoir un pour $ 30.00 sur eBay:

Here’s the comments from the Torque Wiki:

 

OBDLink MX:

Flash upgradable firmware, Powersave/sleep function, Support forums

Reports of good customer support. This is the best adapter if you want the fastest PID read speed. Read speeds can be as fast as 60PIDs/sec over Bluetooth (Tested on a Galaxy S2, CANBUS protocol) This device also offers security to prevent unauthorized us.

 

Ebay/Amazon/Chinese clones:

Some units seem to suffer poor build quality and reliability issues. Make sure you purchase with a buyer who has a decent returns policy should the unit turn out to be defective. If you have connection issues, or displays randomly ‘pausing’ in the app then it is most likely an adapter issue.
