November 2011  :  OBDKey Receives "Recommended" Award from Car Mechanics Magazine

"The Bluetooth in the name gives it away – here’s a package that means you don’t have to be permanently connected to your car during a diagnostics session. But, as handy as that is, the real bonus of Bluetooth is that this package can be run on a plethora of mobile phones and personal organisers, instead of just a laptop.

The bundled programme is businesslike, works well and even goes beyond-OBD on VAG cars"

"Value for Money 6/6"
