X-tool iOBD2 OBD2 code scanner for iOS/Android Report

The iOBD2 WIFI or Bluetooth OBD2/EOBD auto code scanner for Apple iOS (iPhone, iPAD, iTouch)/Android is developed by X-tool TECH.


Iobd2 code reader isn’t only a diagnostic reader, this powerful little unit also provides data logging, and a great dashboard which includes your vehicles current MPG, RPM, and so much more. Following are basic information and review gathered to lead to a better understanding of the OBD?adapter.


?General Info.


iOBD2 software (for BMW, VAG etc) works with most 1996 and & newer model year cars and light trucks (OBDII & CAN)-domestic and imported.


Vehicle model:

1.1996 or newer North American cars

2.2001 or newer European Union cars

3.2004 or newer Asian cars


You are free to choose from the three main features of the app once enter the main menu:



—Performance (Performance gauges, fuel economy gauges, engine gauges)




XTool iOBD2 OBD2 scan tool Diagnostics

The Diagnosis page allows you to read DTCs, clear DTCs, Display DTCs, guide maintenance, live data, freeze frame data, readiness test, Oxygen Sensor test, EVAP System test etc. It is the main function designed for the scanner





X-Tool iOBD2 OBD2 adapter Performance

The iOBD2 Performance screen allows you to test to see your cars acceleration, distance travelled, and a time – this would only be suitable for track (Racetrack Mapping).

XTool iOBD2 OBD?interface Dashboard

The iOBD2 Dashboard provides what a usual car dashboard would show, giving the driver the vehicles current speed, RPM, MPG. This section of the app would be great for those vehicles who do not have a trip computer fitted as standard. I know some of the older Ford drivers will love to have something like this in their Focus RS MK1, to keep an eye on the correct car temperatures and intake temperatures.

Readiness test: Readiness reflects the status that all the valid diagnostic functions. The diagnostic functions are referring to the important monitoring functions in OBD system, e.g. Oxygen sensor monitoring, Oxygen sensor heater monitoring, and EGR system monitoring, etc. These diagnostic functions are closely related to the engine emission control.
Read vehicle info: Read vehicle info such as Vehicle Identification Number(VIN), Calibration IDs(CALID) and Calibration Verification Number (CVN).
Oxygen Sensor test: This service is to allow access to the on-board oxygen sensor monitoring test results. The same information may be obtained by the use of [Mode 6 test].
Mode 6 test: This service is to allow access to the results for on-board diagnostic monitoring tests of specific components/systems that are not continuously monitored. Examples are catalyst monitoring and the evaporative system monitoring.
EVAP System Test: The purpose of this service is to enable the external test equipment to control the operation of an on-board system, test or component.
