  • OBDLink SX (coming soon to MP3Car.com)



    OBDLink SX is an inexpensive, plug-and-play version of OBDLink.

    Key features
    • Plug-and-play design
    • Greatly increased data throughput delivers faster screen updates and more graph points
    • Supports all legislated OBD protocols:
      • ISO15765-4 (CAN)
      • ISO14230-4 (Keyword Protocol 2000)
      • ISO9141-2 (Asian, European, Chrysler vehicles)
      • J1850 VPW (GM vehicles)
      • J1850 PWM (Ford vehicles)
    • Compatible with more diagnostic software than any other scan tool
    • Advanced commands to perform enhanced diagnostics not possible with older ELM327-based scan tools.
    • User upgradeable via free downloads
    • Improved automatic protocol detection - OBDLink SX connects with more vehicles than any other scan tool.
    • Smart keep-alive algorithm helps ensure a constant connection on all vehicles, even ISO and KWP.
    • The large CAN memory buffer makes OBDLink SX the most stable scan tool available.
    • Dimensions: 3.5" L x 1.75" W (89 mm x 45 mm)


    OBDLink MX: world's smallest, fastest, most advanced OBD/Bluetooth adapter with SW and MS CAN support. Read the review to learn more.

    Great I just received my OBDLink in the mail today! Is there any reason I should return the OBDLink. I am looking for the fastest refresh using DashCommand and Centrafuse.

    Thanks,
    Scott

      OBDLink and OBDLink SX will give you identical refresh rates: both scan tools run virtually identical code, and use the same FTDI chip for UART to USB conversion.

      Think of SX as OBDLink that was redesigned for low cost and ease of use. If you intend to use your OBD interface with a CarPC, OBDLink is probably a more flexible choice.

        Hi Vitaliy,

        What exactly is the difference between the OBDLink SX & the original OBDLink (i.e. what features are or are not included).

        Also considering the form factor is quite large (i.e. the scanner will stick out from the OBD port this may be a concern for people that have the OBD port near the drivers legs) will there be any special deals for the J1962M Right Angle to J1962F extension cables?

          Lots of questions

          Is this going to replace the Elmscan 5 on the low end, basically? My wife bought me one for Christmas (the elmscan) and I was thinking about either keeping it for a while or moving up to something with bluetooth (to link to my phone).

            Thanks Vitaliy, I got it installed and updated the firmware and all seems ok once I get it properly embedded with Centrafuse. Now all I need is some help with someone who can modify some DashBoards!

              - OBDLink SX has one status LED, instead of five
              - OBDLink SX doesn't have an onboard 5V regulator, it is powered solely from the USB port.
              - OBDLink SX comes in "one piece": you don't get separate OBD and USB cables
              - OBDLink SX automatically enters low power mode when the host computer is shut down or suspended

              The concern is valid, I'll pitch the idea to marketing.

              We are planning to continue selling both devices side by side, for as long as there is continued demand. What kind of phone do you have?

                  I recommend OBDLink Bluetooth with Torque.
