Product Description


OBDLink LX is a budget-priced, pocket-size Bluetooth OBD adapter device that features exceptional performance, intelligent sleep mode, hacker-proof link security, unparalleled third party app and software support, and free lifetime firmware and software updates. It can be used as a diagnostic scan tool, trip computer, logger, and real-time performance monitor.

In direct comparison tests, OBDLink LX outperformed every competing Bluetooth OBD adapter, delivering 300% more data samples per second. Its intelligent sleep mode (BatterySaver™) allows the device to stay plugged in indefinitely, without draining the vehicle’s battery. The wakeup is also entirely automatic, requiring no intervention from the user.

Unlike the vast majority of Bluetooth OBD adapters, which continuously broadcast their presence and use an easy-to-guess 4-digit PIN, OBDLink LX implements a unique multi-layered link security mechanism, which eliminates the risk of unauthorized access. OBDLink LX’s support of the de facto standard ELM327 command set, makes it compatible with more third-party OBD software and mobile apps than any other competing OBD adapter.

OBDLink LX will quickly and accurately diagnose engine problems and access performance parameters for all OBD-II compliant vehicles. Included OBDwiz software for Windows and the OBDLink app for Android allow you to:

  • Turn off the check engine light, and erase stored diagnostic information.
  • Read and erase stored, pending, and permanent trouble codes (both generic and manufacturer-specific).
  • Access freeze frame information.
  • Display, graph, and log 90+ real-time parameters
  • Create custom digital dashboards
  • Measure and display fuel economy
  • And much more!

The firmware inside OBDLink LX is upgradeable, which means you can enjoy the latest features simply by downloading a free update.

LX supports all legislated OBD-II protocols, and works with all 1996 & newer cars and light trucks sold in the United States. It also supports EOBD, JOBD, and all other international variants of OBD-II.
