Turn Your Smartphone Into An Advanced Scan Tool With BlueDriver
Whether or not you’re mechanically inclined, there’s one thing that is guaranteed to make you break out in a sweat – That dreaded Check Engine light.
The check engine light can be triggered by a variety of things, from something as simple as a loose gas cap to something more serious like an engine misfire. So what are you to do? Most people will head over to their dealership and pay for a pricey diagnosis. And people who work on their cars might head over to AutoZone to borrow one of their ODB-II scanners and find out what code is being returned, after which they’ll scour the Internet to find out what that code means.
Now there’s an easier way. The BlueDriver from Lemur Monitors is an advanced diagnostic scan tool that tells you why your check engine light is on and even how to fix the underlying problem!
This video shows you what the BlueDriver is capable of doing:
The BlueDriver is a wireless dongle that plugs into your car’s OBD-II connector and sends performance data and such via Bluetooth to the BlueDriver app on your iOS or Android smartphone. The app is able to display a variety of information about your vehicle, like the afore mentioned diagnostic trouble codes. You can read AND clear trouble codes without having to visit the dealership. It’ll also generate vehicle specific information such as code definition, possible causes and repair recommendations.
But that’s not all. You can also use the BlueDriver to display all kinds of internal information about your car, such as vehicle speed, engine RPM, coolant temperature, electric current coming from the battery, etc. If you want to monitor your Air/Fuel Ratio or Boost, you can do this through the app rather than installing additional gauges (as long as your car makes that data available through the ODB-II port).
Overall, I was really impressed with the BlueDriver, and with a price point of just $99.95, it’ll pay for itself the first time you get that dreaded check engine light.
