  • Good Value for price, not great Jun 13, 2020

    By TunaFish#5
    Net: probably great for front yard mechanics with conventional cars. For hybrid owners, it provides insight into your issues, but without the same level of diagnostic functionality. This thing is well worth the money if you have a modest understanding of cars and are having a maintenance issue with the engine electronics. If you have a hybrid, it's still useful, but (my sense is that) the engine turning on and off confuses ThinkCar, even to the point where it can't pull the VIN. It can pull & reset engine codes OK, but the data streams are almost always recorded as a permanent loop of the same short patterns.

  • Works great. Love it! Feb 22, 2020

    By Johnthomas Grewer
    I got this scanner when I started looking to buy my first car. Used it, along with the service manual of the car I got, to fix an EVAP leak, allowing me to get an early (and first try) pass on the emissions test. I’ve used it numerous times to figure out what’s wrong with my car, after I did a few dumb things when trying to do preventative maintenance. It’s saved me a lot of money from taking my car to a shop. And time too, since I can scan at any time, and sometimes fix the problem the same day. It’s definitely paid itself off a few times by now.

    When reading the app data on the dash it doesn’t provide voltage or mil status. Blue tooth connection between the OBDII attachment and phone can take more than a few tries to connect. Ive had this for a year and still no fixes. It’s a good product just wish all the functions I paid for operated as advertised. 2006 E90 BMW 330i.

  • They charge money for adding more cars !! Nov 27, 2019

    By Norv88
    Not really worth the money if you think about it I have 5 cars they want $10 for each additional car to add for diagnostics plus the yearly $10 subscription so in real life they are charging you $10 if you want to diagnostic for you friends car check engine light that auto zone and pep boys does it for free ! Kickstart wasn’t mentioned this information they tricked the customers in order to buy this crap for personal use not worth it ! For business use as mechanic it makes sense completely for $10 you can pass down to customers but for me Bludriver could be better option.

    How can this be "more than a professional tool", if it doesn't work?! It used to work, then it stopped working a month or so ago showing dlicense fail. The issue seemed to be in the server somewhere and was fixed few days later. Fast forward to today, when I need the tool...guess what, it doesn't work! The app recognizes the adapter and shows my car, vin # and shows me that my subscription is active and valid. BUT ODB2 scan or Full System scan both show "failed to obtain license and other times show dlicense fail". Thinkcar please get serious about this as we paid money. The app works, my phone works(tried on few difference phones) but you guys constantly have issues with your servers or something that is out of user's control!

    This app continues to give me problems. I'm sad I wasted the money on the adapter. I even got the upgraded version thinking it would be better the Thinkdiag. Sadly it is a poor user quality too.

  • Poorly written app very buggy Oct 13, 2019

    By bonedaddy4538
    First of all this app is very buggy and there are many fake reviews for this just read them they haven’t even received the device so how can they try the app? Thinkcar only works with cars 2005 and newer which doesn’t follow the OBD2 standard and isn’t disclosed on the Kickstarter or the website. App needs work for sure. Make sure all permissions allowed including location so that the app works correctly

    Requires firmware update from 11.93 to 11.95 to do any scan. I tried dozen times, always fail. Totally waste of time.

    Never buy a used car without scanning and checking for cleared codes. This product and app are indispensable!

  • Largely unusable Sep 17, 2019

    By awoodbeck
    Are a lot of bugs to work out, to the point that I could only get the dashboard showing speed, run time, load, etc. to work. None of the scans would complete. They all failed with an error complaining about internet connectivity despite being on a strong WiFi or 4G connection. Downloading the firmware update worked, but it immediately failed to apply and displayed a generic error. Updating the Bluetooth didn’t even download. Instead, the app simply crashed. Being one of the initial Kickstarter supporters, I was given a code for a year’s subscription. That doesn’t seem to be reflected in the app despite claiming it soon after registration. Speaking of registration, the app is not very password manager-friendly. It appears to clear your clipboard when setting your initial password. If you have your password manager generate a strong password and save it to your clipboard, save the password in your password manager *before* pasting it to the app during registration or password changes. In regards to passwords, they appear to be limited to around 20 characters. If you generate a large password outside of the app’s maximum size, it won’t complain but rather truncate your pasted in password and set it. I hope you paid attention to where the password was truncated. Overall, there is promise, but also a lot of work ahead. I’ll update this review as the app experience changes.
