This Kiwi Bluetooth Car Diagnostic Kit for Android is a combination hardware dongle and software product for tapping into your car’s on-board computer to check if the old jalopy is running all right. Yes your car probably does have a computer, most vehicles built after the late 90′s do, it’s what delivers those annoying engine light error codes.

Anyhoo, all you do is plug in the wireless dongle to your car socket (usually under the steering wheel), install the software onto your smartphone and connect the two wirelessly via Bluetooth. Voila, an instant car diagnostic tool. The kit costs $99.99 and the software around $5.00 (£2.95).

 Kiwi Bluetooth comes attached with a 6 ft OBDII cable for easy installation. It also comes with a power switch built-in to prevent the need for having to constantly disconnect your unit from the OBDII port. You can use it in any vehicle born in 1996 or later, whether it’s a sedan, truck, SUV, or even a hybrid. Once the device is connected, you can download one of two recommended car diagnostics apps from the Android Market and begin to monitor all sorts of stats about your car.
