OBDLink® MX Bluetooth
This item is no longer in production. It had been superseded by OBDLink MX+
OBDLink MX Bluetooth is an easy-to-use, inexpensive, hacker-proof, lightning-fast Bluetooth OBD adapter that can turn your smart phone, tablet, laptop, or netbook into a sophisticated diagnostic scan tool, trip computer, and real-time performance monitor.
The ergonomically designed, small form factor device comes in frustration-free packaging, and takes an average of 3 minutes to install. The button on the back of the unit makes the connection process both easy and secure: unlike most other adapters on the market, MX Bluetooth neither broadcasts its presence, nor uses an easy-to-guess PIN to protect the communication link. A potential hacker would require physical access to the device, in order to connect to it.
MX Bluetooth supports all legislated OBD-II protocols, plus advanced Ford & GM vehicle networks (MS-CAN and SW-CAN). MX Bluetooth works with all 1996 & newer cars and light trucks sold in the United States, and also supports EOBD, JOBD, and all other international variants of OBD-II. If you don’t require access to advanced Ford & GM networks, consider purchasing OBDLink LX Bluetooth.
