  • Amazing!

    By Kurele
    Excellent app! Very very useful. Make an in app purchase that we can donate to?
  • Gauges don’t reflect settings

    By BurrenTech
    I use the metric system but even after selecting metric in the settings when going to the gauges display everything is still in imperial. Otherwise a good app.
  • I want my money back !

    By Trailbilly
    I bought this and the 9.99 1997ford add on in hopes that that it could give me fuel trims and o2 sensor data but zero !!! I’m furious that I just wasted $20 bucks and I can’t find any support for this app !

    This app will not scan anything says there are no codes when I know there are and I know what they are half the gauges don’t even work as well
  • Does not work with my car

    By Dtrain710
    Would like a refund please, the app cannot communicate with my Porsche.
  • Does not work with Pioneer AppRadio

    By LenRegister
    I bought this app because it says it works with Pioneer AppRadio. It does not!
  • Updated Review, Downgrade

    Update Oct 2018 The app hasn’t been updated in forever. The UI is like iOS4 is back in style. Yes it works but that may not be the case going forward. When I bought my 2016 truck I had use the 2014 pids. Ended up with an Edge Insight for my diesel truck and used this in my SUV. Bought a new SUV now and have no idea if the 2014 Ford pids I bought as in-app purchase are still valid. Guess this is the new way software works, you write an app, sell it for a couple of years, and then abandon it. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ One of the recommended hardware adapters is the OBDLink MX Wifi...beware it has serious connectivity issues even from when it was a Kickstarter project. Yet DashCommand still recommends it. Basically with the MX DashCommand won't work. I swapped the MX for the PLX Devices Kiwi 2. It's about 1/2 the price and works great. Now I can give DashCommand an appropriate review. It works great for my application of wanting to continuously monitor a handful of engine parameters. No connectivity issues other than typical iOS mandated situations like switching to another app. I did buy an in-app purchase for vehicle specific PIDs. All in it's still way cheaper than buying physical gauges and installing them in my truck. I recommend it so long as you've got the right hardware. Wish there was better documentation other than having to post in the forums but at least they're responsive.
  • Freezes A lot

    By Karpetcm
    This thing will work now for 2 minutes and then freeze. No way of contacting support through the app option doesn’t work and I can’t access any forums. I paid for this app for me to use only one thing IAT’s and it won’t even do that.
  • Great but needs update

    By bugnlv
    The function of the programs great but the problem is the databases old. 2014 is the newest year and my 2006 Nissan Titan was not listed either. Otherwise I love the app.
  • Very disappointing

    By Aardvark!
    I got this app to get an idea of the HP of my Merc C63s before and after some major upgrades. It connects to my kiwi 3 just fine, but then when I go to select my vehicle in the app, guess what? No updates since 2014. Yup. If your car is 2015 or later you’re out of luck. So, I had to pick the 2015 model even though it’s completely different motor etc. I don’t know if that is the issue or if it’s another bug entirely, but according to the app my car has something like 65000 HP. Go figure. I don’t really get how they get away with continuing to sell this app when it hasn’t supported anything released in the last 4 years?
