Automotive Mobile App Development for Android and IOS
Check Your Engine Light
The Check Your Engine Light App turns your smartphone into an OBD II reader so that you can read the check engine light from your car. The app retrieves one or more diagnostic trouble codes (DTC) from the car's computer via an OBD II Reader and displays the name of the code and number (ie: P0305 Cylinder five misfire).
The user can than drill down and further research to see the top reasons for this DTC. Data transfer is via USB where as most apps transfer data via Bluetooth or WiFi.
This app provides an excellent platform for the Do-It-Yourself mechanic. It's also a great starting point for the Average Joe so they can have an intelligent conversation with their mechanic or to educate themselves in order to avoid being taken advantage of.
