Introducing the world’s smallest and fastest OBD2 adapter! Engineered to accelerate performance on mobile OBD Apps like the free OBDLink app. LX is up to 400% faster than the closest obd2 scanner. Thanks to our BatterySaver technology, you can even leave this scanner plugged in without draining your battery when the engine is off. Includes the latest OBDWiz diagnostic software for your windows computer.

Exclusive OBDLink Features:

  • Extended command set – Enables OBDLink LX to perform enhanced diagnostics not possible with ELM327-based scan tools. 100 percent compatible with legacy ELM327 commands.
  • Upgradeable firmware – LX is user upgradeable with free downloads.
  • BatterySaver™ – Allows LX to automatically enter Sleep mode when not in use. Fully automatic sleep and wake-up: does not require switches or manual button presses!
  • Advanced multi-protocol auto-detect algorithm – OBDLink LX connects to more OBDII vehicles than any adapter on the market.
  • Huge CAN memory buffer – STN1110’s architecture allows OBDLink LX to manage larger amounts of data without error compared to older ELM327-based scan tools.

Premium diagnostic software, such as ScanXL (optional) or ForScan, offer a avalanche of additional features like access to proprietary systems such as ABS, SRS, and thousands of enhanced manufacturer-specific parameters. The firmware inside OBDLink MX is upgradeable, the latest features are simply just a free download away.

Unlike the vast majority of Bluetooth OBD2 adapters, which continuously broadcast their presence and use an easy-to-guess 4-digit PIN, LX implements a unique multi-layered link security mechanism, which eliminates the risk of unauthorized access.
