Good, basic, PLX Wifi client
First, you have to realize that this app goes specifically with the PLX Kiwi Wifi OBD-II connector - don't buy this app unless you already have the connector. Also, the app won't work unless you correctly set up your iPhone/iPod to connect to the Kiwi connector - read their manual to get the right settings (it's non-trivial).
The app is a good basic implementation that shows various OBD-II values in realtime.
I used it to help monitor engine coolant temperature on an overheating Miata, and verify that my radiator swap did the job.
For that purpose the app worked great.
Three stars because there's no way to record data, and you can only display one gauge at a time. For five bucks I'd have hoped for some more features.
Works on some vehicles
Just bought a plx kiwi wifi and this app. Tried the app on a 00 2.0 aeg jetta did not work. Half way worked on a 00 dodge Cummings 5.9. Worked perfectly on a 96 gmc 5.7 vortec. Not sure what the deal is I want my money back if this isn't fixed. And a nice add on would be an avg. fuel mpg gauge. Thanks
Like another reviewer said, the app only works once in a while. Usually it just displays random numbers for a few seconds and then crashes. I was told an update would be released soon, but that was over a month ago. I agree that an average or instantaneous fuel economy gauge should be added
