Scan tool

Hello,
I m wondering, if there is a such a scanner that scans the car as soon as check engine light pops in automatically and shows the codes on iphone through app.
so scanner will have to come with app , of course.
I think that would be an AWESOME TOOL.
Thanks,
C

You can buy a OBD2 scanner on Ebay such as https://www.ebay.com/itm/ELM327-WiFi...OnfovOuSs-2zLg. You can get an app such as https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/dash...es/id321293183 for you Iphone. Note the Iphone will require a WiFi scanner as Bluetooth scanner does not work with Iphone.

I have used this type of scanner and app for a few years with no problems. Not only read CEL codes it also has many other features. It cust you less than $25 US. There are many other options out there and some can cost hundreds.

Nope, you still have to launch the app on the phone.
