I have had a scangauge for about 4 years now and it has been broken for about 1 year.
I ordered a 3rd party replacement wire for $10 and it didn't work.
I got a replacement from Linear-Logic $20 and it still doesn't work.
I called them and they said it was a free repair!!
now i want 2...

Get a cheap adapter and use the Torque app...cheaper, works just as well, and the screen looks better too!

I have had 3 different Bluetooth obd things but they also require a $50 phone,2 12v power sources. and the battery in the phone is a hazard in the summer and it gets to cold in the winter.

Great tool for testing with a tablet and checking codes but not as good as a scangauge for a replacement gauge cluster.

I just use my own phone - at an additional cost of $0. Already connected to the adapter via Bluetooth, hooks up in 5 seconds, and ready to go!

Back in the android 4.xx days it took about 5 minutes on a dual core w/ 512mb of ram,
I bought a $50 Moto E (first gen) for the work van, quadcore 1gb ram and it can only do 4 gauges on 1 page with the most basic settings possible before its overrun.
The best experience I have had was with a Coolpad 4", it was able to run full tilt on any charger without the battery.
