That model scanner is garbage. It is branded by so many no names. Plus, it is bulky and doesn't fit well in some cars. I prefer Viecar for a cheap Bluetooth scanner.

Thanks for your feedback! The only Viecar scanner I could find on amazon is only compatible with Android and I only have IOS :(

Do you know where the adapter is in my vehicle by any chance?

They are a commodity item these days. The $20 ones are no better than the $8-$10 ones. Make sure that you get one that works with your smartphone, iPhone or Android.

ODB2 adapter that is ELM327 compatible with Bluetooth is the way to go, don't worry about the version of the software that ships with it (or not), you can upgrade it for free online.

Torque works best for me, but I am using a Pixel XL (Android "Oreo" 8.1).

The connector should be where your fuses are under the dash, almost always to the left of the steering wheel - at least for LHD vehicles.

Viecar 4.0 will work with iOS. There are not many that work with iOS. How bout eBay.ca? I bet you can find the Viecar 4.0 there, maybe have to wait a couple more days.

Alright thanks for the feedback! I looked around and I think this would work for me, thoughts?

Thanks!

Looks fine. My point was only that you don't need / want to throw money at these, just find one that works. Someone told me iOS needs WiFi as opposed to BLE, but I think that is "used to". Bluetooth Low Energy (4.0+) is probably less expensive.

That one looks identical to the one I use. I have a friend who is using one he paid $8 for - works fine.
