The OBDKey® is a match box sized portable scan tool used to quickly and easily to diagnose vehicle problems.

The OBDKey® Unit

Owning a small portable scan tool is essential to monitor the healthy state of your vehicle's engine management system for regular check-ups between services and maintenance periods.

The OBDKey is available with a USB connection, a Bluetooth interface or a WLAN / WiFi interface.

The OBDKey Bluetooth gives connectivity options for Windows PCs, Windows Mobile devices and Android systems that have Bluetooth.

The OBDKey USB version is more for Windows PCs or netbooks that have a USB master port.

The OBDKey WLAN is suitable for Windows PCs, Windows Mobile devices and iPhone and iPod Touchs that have a WLAN radio. In terms of speed the USB and WLAN are faster than Bluetooth.

The WLAN / WiFi or Bluetooth connection is usually preferred where you prefer to operate a wire-free diagnostic environment.

The USB connection is usually preferred where you already have a PC or laptop equipped with a USB port.

Bluetooth offers a very flexible option as many handheld devices such as Pocket PC's, PDA's, Palm devices and mobile phones have Bluetooth built in. This means you can use your own handheld device to access the vehicle data with the OBDKey.

Software is supplied for the PC and Pocket PC (PDA, Windows CE), Palm, Windows Smartphones and Android versions are also available.

Note that the OBDKey OBD Bluetooth unit is not the same as an OBD WLAN. Contact us for further details.
