Bluetooth transmitter relays auto diagnostic data

Marc Perton

bluetooth obd connector It may be overkill if you just need to figure out why your Air Bag light won't go off, but if you actually know how to diagnose and fix problems with your car's electrical system, the OBD Bluetooth Transmitter from Vital Engineering may become a valuable part of your toolkit. Once connected to your car's onboard diagnostics system (specifically the OBD-II system standard on most cars built since 1996), the transmitter will wirelessly send data to any Bluetooth device, including PCs and PDAs. Sure, you may still have to get your hands dirty to fix the problem, but now you can figure out what's wrong without even opening the hood.
