Anyone using GoMechanic OBD Scanner?


Any thoughts/feedback ?
Another thing, does it drains battery when the car is parked ?

If all you want is a scanner then just get the cheap blue scanner from Amazn. They are all same inside...all made in China. Do you really think GoMechani is different - its just gimmick.

Yes, they do drain battery, but not so fast, unless you leave it on the car for several 5-6 weeks.

Thanks for your response. Yes, its mostly Chinese product but couple of things which they are claiming is
1. Real time GPS tracking
2. Towing alerts

Now, if these are true, my question is how its being done?
1. Does it has module for network communication with SIM embedded?
2. GPS module built in?

Now, if these are there, it will drain battery much faster than any other scanner.

I saw this review for ELM 327 OBDII device on amazon.

Link for device
https://www.amazon.in/dp/B01DVU666M

It mentions removing fuse of OBDII port will help in prevention of car theft. Is this true?
