Anyone familiar OBDKey
Here is a tool that hardly anyone OBDKey is talking about. Is it any good it cost more than OBDLink but that does not make any better without proved info, some reported that it works on fiat ecu models as other/similar fail to do so.
So could anyone provide any information regarding this OBDKey compared to OBDLink.
I was wondering the same thing.... Looking to buy one soon to hook up to my iPhone
Sorry, I can't comment on Fiat (though OBDLink works on all EOBD cars), but ScanTool.net does offer a 90-day money back guarantee, and returns are hassle-free.
Well I guess I wont know till I buy it and try it! Something I thought I could avoid...
Vitaliy how does OBDLink compare to Vag-Com KKL Interface would be great if you could point out where it lack because from reading a great amount of topics regarding this comparison people tend to suggest to buy both to have maximum compatibility, can you outline a few scenarios where you would need one over the other or vise versa.
Rusty, in a nutshell, OBDLink works with all generic OBD-II systems (including EOBD). VAG-COM is a special-purpose tool that only works on VAG cars, but gives you access to more modules and parameters.
Get OBDLink, and if it doesn't do what you want, get the VAG-COM interface.

This seems a fair comparison site from a software developer:
It may appear to be fair, but given the fact that the author (Graham McKechny) threw a tantrum after he was banned from the ScanTool.net forum for violating the forum rules, I wouldn't call it objective.
It is also woefully out of date. He lists the price of OBDLink as $149.95. You can buy it from this website, for only $85.
