Innovation

Improve your gas mileage, create a digital dashboard and remote start your car directly from the app.

OBDLink MX WiFi is described by the company that makes it as a “swiss army knife for your car,” which isn’t surprising when you see what it can do. The device turns your smart phone, tablet, or PC into a sophisticated diagnostic scan tool, trip computer, and real-time performance monitor – all of which can be used with a variety of highly-rated apps.

The device can help you to improve your gas mileage, create a digital dashboard or HUD, and for certain vehicles you can even remote start your car, or lock/unlock your car directly from the app. An added benefit is that if you’re on the market for a used car, you can use the device to check the authenticity of the seller’s claims and really make sure you’re getting a great deal.

OBDLink has so far only shipped a dozen prototypes to their most trusted beta testers, but the feedback has been nothing but positive so far. In order to get the production line rolling, the company has launched a Kickstarter Campaign, which has already smashed through it’s $35,000 and just pushed through the $150,000 mark. You can still get one of the devices for $79, which is $40 less than the normal retail price, and based on the enthusiasm so far, a very good deal.
