Lemur BlueDriver review

    you can get something similar for $19 on Amazon. Cheaper if you want to give Aliexpress a shot.
    $100? Wow.

      Agreed — a simple OBD-II bluetooth module ($15-20) and the Torque Pro app ($5) is all you need. I’ve been running that combination for something like four years. Torque Pro even has a Twitter module, people tend to be suprised when I tell them my 2001 Outback can tweet!

      Exactly!!!!

    $20 on ebay for the adapter, $5 for a customizable app. Has been around for a few years.

    I agree with the other comments – $100 is excessive for what this does. I bought a basic OBD II code scanner on sale at an auto parts store for $20. I’m definitely not a mechanic, but I can tell you that it does almost everything this product can do. It even displays my VIN automatically – no need for me to type it in! My scan tool might not be wireless, and it doesn’t have a button to turn on a flashlight, but it gets the same thing done as this product at a fraction of the price. Also, many vehicles on the road today can already display this info in their productivity screens. This will expand into more vehicles over time, I’m sure.

    That’s way too much money for what it does. Torque (on android) has been around for years and, for only $5, you get everything that this thing does and more! A compatible bluetooth module is more or less $20. In all, it will only cost you about $25-$30.

    I bought the OBD bluetooth ELM for $5 and using torque App $5. works for me.

  • Everybody wants “good” (e.g., permanent manufacturing, not retail temping) jobs in Canada, yet nobody wants to spend at a rate that would support them. Do remember that every purchase of offshored goods is money subtracted from what’s left of the Canadian manufacturing sector. That said, as several commentators noted, a 5x differential between Canuck and offshore is indeed too much to expect people to pay. If the BlueDriver came in at $40, you could ask people to choose between conscience and cost. But at $100? Probably not going to be a big seller…

      The hardware and software most likely was also built “offshore”.

      At 40$ i would get one.
      at 100$ they can go to hell..

      I personally do not have the money to pay a 500% premium for something that’s made in Canada, just for the sake of buying Canadian.

    +1 for the obd codes website. I’ve been able to fix several issues on my car that at first check sounded major, but after looking up the code/description/possible solutions on there, found out it was a simple fix.
