Great  Einstyne  5 star

Works well, looks good. Seamless pairing with Bluetooth obd reader.


Works great  JaSoN!!!!!!!  5 star

Keep an obd2 reader in the car- fix things on the fly


Problem with iPad Pro connection  Chris22222222  2 star

It takes at least few minutes before it connects to my iPad. Works fine with my iPhone. Also, it continues to drop out frequently. I would not recommend this app if u are going to use an iPad Pro.


Do not buy this app  WhiteAsRice  1 star

Doesn’t do anything. Was suggest by the obd 2 device I had and I regret spending 10 dollars on this. I wish there was a way to get my money back.


Junk, no customer service  Thatboie  1 star

Won’t connect to my WiFi Eml device, Waste of $9.99

Can’t connect to Kiwi3 device! ios 11.0.3  Smith Rock Climber  1 star

I recently bought a PLX Kiwi 3 device and installed Dashcommand to connect to the unit. I have not been able to connect to the kiwi3 with Dashcommand using iOS 11.0.3 on a iPhone 7 . Ive checked the settings in Dashcommand and everything is set to the recommended settings. I am able to use the kiwi3 with Auto Doctor on my iphone and the free android version of dashcommand using my tablet and it looks good, but I just cant get Dashcommand to connect to the kiwi3 using my iphone. I hope this gets fixed soon as I am interested in using DC, and have paid for the app. I hope this helps inform people before they buy Dashcommand to ise with a kiwi3 and ios 11.0.3. It is currently not working for me. I am giving this 1 star only because it wont connect to my kiwi3, other than that it looks like it has potential to be pretty cool.


Great App  Emiator  5 star

I love this app. I have had several code reading apps and this is the best all around app. I am hoping they make this for Apple CarPlay.


Works as expected  Munkie0817  4 star

This one has saved me quite a few $. Would love to see some newer cars as well as Support for Honda Models


Works good but..  Vezfly1  3 star

Bought updated version, only reason I bought was to monitor transmission temp. Is this not possible ?


Seemed to stop working in latest iOS 11  Superman820  3 star

Has been working great until I updated my iPhone to iOS 11. Please help!! That’s why my review is a 3.


Best paid option for IOS  J.PEREIRA  5 star

I have tested a lot of OBD2 apps trying to find one that has the right mix of information. This has been the best by far and was more than worth the price tag.


Fantastic app!  Abuckton  5 star

I have a BMW M135i which despite its performance doesn't have any temperature gauges! DashComand solved that problem in a really stylish way. I'm using a cheap WiFi ELM327 dongle and it works well

Criminally Minded

Love it. Use NGXplay to allow it to work with Apple CarPlay.  Criminally Minded  5 star

Truely a brilliant app.

Nelson 5 star

Awsome  Nelson 5 star  5 star

Awsome app, really helped be with a problem with my car. Great response time and very useful.

Brent Mlady

Works great with the kiwi3  Brent Mlady  5 star

Could not ask for anything better. It was able to find a cylinder fault on a buddies car and saved him a lot. Super fast reads from the kiwi3 to a old iPhone 5.


Great app  Derotitiddilytumtedurr  5 star

Picked up just about every sensor I wanted in my car and getting better with every version.

Noise Toys Imports

Totally Wicked App  Noise Toys Imports  5 star

Been using this for a while now and happy with the functionality of the platform works as described. Would totally recommend it 10/10


Worked once.  Azagil  1 star

The app worked once now it won't connect. Phone connects to wifi but app won't connect to it.... what a waste!!!!!


Great car analyser  MikeSpikeL  5 star

Every update gets better. I use it to recover fault codes and clear them, monitor Engine conditions over time


Unhappy  Unhappy2710863926  1 star

It should be stated in the description that a connection is needed as I just wasted $15 on an app I cannot use.

Latte Rob

Great app, works with Kiwi 3  Latte Rob  4 star

Really like all the telemetry stats, very informative! On occasion, it will time out and I have to restart the app. I would like to see GPS tracking added to measure road trips to get fuel efficiency.


A Great App!  KeepaSecret  5 star

I have a Modified 2007 Ford Mustang and this app has it all. Covers all engine and performance readouts. Abt the best auto app i have used. Thanks!


No more support?  Jdreshopted  1 star

Great app until recently. However, since purchased by Autometer there seems to be no more support for it. Auto meter now another app with a different name but exact same interfaces that you must purchase their specific expensive OBDii interface to use.


Can't get it to work on iphone 6  Sggfbifbk4775  1 star

I've spent 20 minutes attempting to get it to connect and it connected once but the data was not updated. I feel like I wasted $9.99.


Dash command  Dgperez  1 star

Well I downloaded this app but it won't connect to elm 327 no wifi or Bluetooth connection don't bother or waste your time or money on upgrades.


Does the Job  c5sparkchaser  4 star

I still have a lot of playing around to do with it, but I like what I've seen so far. I'm sure when I finally get around to reading the manual, a lot of my questions will be answered.


Good app  Jsyndicate  5 star

Good app


App not updated  BigDufus  1 star

This is an old app. Needs update. No definitions for autos since 2014. Doesn't reset codes on my 2015. Recommend NO BUY.


Works as advertised  naturephotoguy  5 star

Many others have explained why this app is worth buying. I'm writing to contradict two negative reviews. One said you can't get back to the main menu after activating a dashboard without shutting down the app and restarting it. Not so. Just tough the screen for two seconds and a menu will appear that allows you to return to the main screen. Second, someone said it doesn't work with vehicles after 2014. Also not true. Works fine with our 2016 Subaru Forester. The database that comes with the app doesn't include vehicles newer than 2014, but you can manually input model information and parameters for any newer vehicle. One minor quibble: the gauges on a couple of the dashboards are too small to be legible on an iPhone 6, but you can access the same information in other ways. A fine app. Works flawlessly with Amazon's recommended Foseal OBD II WiFi dongle.


Quick and useful  Johnnydawg  5 star

I love how fast and easy it is to use. Much more detailed than expected.
