    I wouldn't trust this because look at the shipping. US $25.99 They charge a ridiculous shipping amount to avoid ebay final value fees. If they are going to scam ebay what makes you think they wont scam you? Oh and by the way, the other is also a counterfeit.

    Dear Pual,
    Many poeple are asking which OBD2 interface is the best?
    Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this question. The manufacturer tools have the most features for their specific makes, but are expensive and not very flexible. Aftermarket tools specific to a vehicle can come pretty close to the same features, with a much better price, but still run very proprietary software and aren't universal. Standalone tools are usually easier to work with, but have limited user interfaces and aren't very flexible. We personally like the flexibility of the PC/PDA converters, but they have their downsides as well. It is kind of like asking which vehicle is best, it would depend largely on function (hauling children, groceries, gravel, or just plain hauling a-- ?)

    I've been using OBDpros for almost two years. Never knew it could be upgraded, I've been using the same software it was shipped with.

    Of all my Serial to USB devices, this one is the most reliable one I have. Never had a problem hibernating, sleeping, whatever. Kudos to whoever wrote the driver. Usually, serial-to-usb interfaces are a hit or miss with cheap cables/drivers.

    sorry for the almost useless post, but the post I just quoted is the 1234'th post in the OBD section
