*** This model is an early version intended for Kickstarter Backers. New users please find “Kiwi OBD” by tapping on PLX Devices, INC. next to the app icon at the top of this page.
Kiwi OBD is a professional dashboard, trip computer, OBD II scan tool, performance meter, driving efficiency monitor and more for your car. Coupled with the SEMA award winning Kiwi OBD hardware dongle by PLX, this Kiwi OBD is 6 Apps in 1.
Display up to 125 parameters in 6 preset modes (dashboard, engine, efficiency, trip, gear, and custom). This professional customizable dash was designed to outperform even the most expensive cars. Includes intelligent features such as peak-hold and intelligent warnings, as well as a library of styles and colors.
-Fuel Efficiency with DriveGreen™
Drive smarter. Studies performed by fueleconomy.gov show that 33% of fuel is wasted simply by inefficient driving habits. Our proprietary Kiwi Drive Green driving behavior algorithms provide optimal fuel efficiency feedback for any vehicle or driving conditions. Kiwi Drive Green receives sensor inputs, 'learns' your driving styles, and computes it into a 'Kiwi Score.' As you drive, the app conveniently displays your score alongside other fuel efficiency parameters.
-Performance with MultiGauges™ (Coming soon)
Measure your vehicle's true performance without spending $1000s on dynamometer testing, track testing, or drag strip runs. Kiwi measures real-time horsepower and torque and other metrics such as 0-60 times, 1/8 mile, 1/4 mile times, skidpad, inclinometer and more.
Diagnose your check engine light without the hassle of visiting your dealer or mechanic. View the specific error codes, as well as a simple description of the problem, from the convenience of your home. Once the problem has been addressed simply press reset to clear the code.
-Data Logging and Video Overlay (Coming soon)
Capture live video with real-time data overlay. A great tool for driving trips, fleet vehicles, auto cross, and track days, Video Overlay mode simultaneously captures video and sensor readings to provide you with professional video feedback of your drive with superimposed real-time sensor data. Analyze vehicle performance. Select from up to 125 sensors to record, pause, stop, playback and export your data.
-Kiwi 3 Hardware
Built specifically for the world's smallest, fastest, most versatile OBD adapter. Up to 4 times faster than the nearest competitor, Kiwi 3 uses ultra low power, installs in seconds, and can be left permanently installed in your vehicle. Kiwi 3 is compatible with all standard OBDII protocols and is able to update firmware via Bluetooth. When inserted into your OBDII port, Kiwi 3 sits just 0.68 inches thin making it the smallest, most discrete OBDII adapter.

Ratings and Reviews
Still basic than other apps.
I was excited when I heard about this when it was in its Kickstarter phase. Really disappointed with the turnout as I backed the Kickstarter. Pretty basic even with the update. No communication. Just disappointing.
Beautiful high performance app
I use the Kiwi 3 interface from PLX Devices. As soon as you launch the app, my first impression is that it's beautiful. A great deal of thought has gone into the design, function and flow. Tap start connection and it automatically finds my hardware and connected in seconds without the trouble of having to pair my Bluetooth. All my parameters come in quickly and I can view parameters that I thought I never had such as catalytic converter temp, fuel pressure, engine timing. I can also see them in different forms that other apps don't offer such as a scrolling graph, rainbow style gauge as well as numeric. The drive green is a cool feature and the algorithm works to save a great deal of fuel. I've successfully read an reset my check engine light on my Mazda and Toyota without any problems. The trip info is the most useful for me where I can track my fuel consumption on different trips and also calculate the value of fuel used for reimbursements. Looking forward to testing the other features soon. This is an app that stands above the rest. Recommend.
Looking forward to what’s to come
Best lay out and view I’ve seen with OBD apps. Still waiting for the features to come, can imagine that software development takes time. Features that are available work well, like any other app, sure they’ll continue to release updates every few weeks or months improving the app overall.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
