Pros and cons of DashCommand - OBD-II gauge dashboards, scan tool app for iPhone and iPad

DashCommand - OBD-II gauge dashboards, scan tool app good for

Looking for a great smartphone based app to read, display and log from car data? This is it. Works fantastic on my car and I strongly recommend it, worth the money.
Best obd app at the market, no doubts. Could be cheaper but still worth it.
Its always good to know about the health of my truck! Better yet when looking at the beautiful dashboards available. I would like to have tuning options at hand. Think about it, friends!
Beste OBD App für iPhone!!!! Funktioniert mit Lescars OBD Profiadapter 1A 5* verdient!
Most of the free Apps that allow OBD-monitoring are only working with particular (expensive) OBD modules or just provide very limited information. Although this App isnt free, it offers extended functionality thats entirely worth its (not so high) price tag. Because of a few bugs (e.g. no automatic WiFi-reconnect if the OBD-module restarts/reboots during a logging session) and minor UI shortcomings, Ill give it four out of five stars. It also works perfectly with VGate products.
Works great with my MB C300. I use wifi OBD adapter. Also used it with Honda Odyssey.

Some bad moments

Since last update i am not able to conect to my ob2 wireless . It doesnt connect and display an error about protocol (ford ranger )
Its a shame dashcommand has a lot of users from countries that use a different unit (km/l), and is unable to satisfy these customers with an easy implementation like that, once it already has l/100 km. All you have to do is divide 100 by this unit value.
Before the last update the app was good and able to erase error of my electronic fuel injection. After the last update an error occurs during this procedure and nothing happens.
Worked the first 3x I bought this.... Now Im not getting any connection to my reader.... Kinda think this was a waist of my money....
I am quite disappointed that this app does almost nothing on my Sprinter. Is there something that I am missing?
Do you need OBD II for everything to work on the app Or what do I need to do?
