OBD

Can anyone recommend a half decent OBD fault checker compatible with IOS.
Preferably one that displays the description of the fault as well as the fault code.
Thanks in advance. RRS (MY12) Santorini Black SDV6 HSE luxuary

If you want cheap or value for money. you could buy one of these.

+ £5 for an app.

MUST BE THE WIFI version to work with iPhone.



or for the best (which most ppl have on here)

GAP IID BT which is ~£425 and does loads.
program keys, upgrade software, change config options, just works. (unlike that cheap one)

You need one that reads the whole code not just the generic code. This can then be x-ref’d to the workshop manual which I’ve found invaluable in fault finding. Saved me a lot of time fault finding on my RSE and nailed it in minutes. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

Andy thanks for the link to EBay.

Brit plumber, thanks for the heads up about full code reading capability.

It’s unclear whether the ELM327 reads full or only generic fault codes. Also whether it can display the actual fault description.

I’ve already paid for the ELM327 but have since put the seller on notice not to ship until the uncertainty is resolved either by you you guys or the seller himself.

Many thanks RRS (MY12) Santorini Black SDV6 HSE luxuary

The thing with ELM327 is that it’s not a device, it’s a standard. So dozens of tools use ELM327 but not all are equal. Some will clear faults but not give detailed DTCs, some will give good DTCs for the engine and nothing else. They are a bit hit and miss until you try them out. 2012MY RRS 5.0 Supercharged Autobiography (Current)

just as well buy the right tool first, gap or similar that does it all, makes it keep after first fault or two. (unless your mate has one you can borrow) Very Happy

Thanks for the advice re what OBD reader to buy.
I cancelled the ELY327 as originally bought and have since ordered the Vgate VS890 Maxiscan OBD2 CAN.
I’ll report back on my assessment. RRS (MY12) Santorini Black SDV6 HSE luxuary
