OBD2 app for Windows Phone is now available from the Microsoft app store!
The app is available for free so that you can make sure it works with your adapter and car. You can read Trouble Codes (confirmed and pending), Freeze Frame and reset MIL with the app. You can also check readiness monitors and monitor various sensor values. And more features will be implemented in future.
The free app contains some limitations, however, that you can unlock by upgrading to the Pro version using in-app purchase. In-app purchase is convenient way to buy the app without need to re-install separate version.
Few words about the sensors. First of all, your car needs to support specific sensor in order it to show up in the selection view. If you car doesn’t support a sensor, it will not be shown in the view.
The selected sensors will be read one after another. The update speed of the sensors depends much on the used adapter. The better adapter you have, the faster the values are updated. This also means that the more sensors you have selected, the more time it will take to get specific sensor updated. The sensors are updated at maximum speed in the same order they are visible to you.
Click sensor name to open the graph view
The graph view
Tapping a sensor name in the view will open graphical presentations of the data. See the screenshots above. Please note that the graph view will be opened only for sensors that have numeric value. If the sensor contains non-numeric value, tapping the name won’t do anything.
Upgrade to the Pro
The upgrade to the Pro version can be done inside the app using in-app purchase. The future updates of the app will be free for all existing customers who have upgraded the the Pro version. The purchase is tied to your Windows Phone account. If you change your phone or uninstall the app by accident, you can always get the Pro version back automatically just by installing the free app from the app store. The only thing you have to do is use the same WP account in your phone.
Unfortunately Microsoft doesn’t provide us any means to issue refunds of the purchases so please test the app with you car before upgrading just to make sure there is no compatibility issues.
