Thanks. Let me search from where to source the above mentioned scanners.

G-Scan 2 would be ₹1,50,000+.

Trying to get a good deal for G-Scan 2 complete kit. Shall update when I get one.

Yes, saw the pricing for G-Scan and others . I think I'll start with the cheap ones first and then move on higher as per the need.

Bought an ELM327 one just to get hold of the basics and see what info is obtained etc. Using Torque Pro and pairing with the adapter took 30 seconds flat. Now, since the OBD port is always powered, is it ok to leave the adapter in the port or should I take it out after every trip?

I have left it in the OBD port, no issues so far.

If you use the car regularly let it be in the port, if NOT remove it.

i bought the TOPDON OBDCAN Elite for around 70 USD during November sale. Presently it sells for around 90 USD on AliExpress. It covers almost all the cars that have an OBD port and includes ABS/Airbag fault codes identification and resetting. A good investment IMO.
As for keeping the ELM327 plugged in, agree with above member's view that the drain on battery is small and unlikely to drain the battery if car is used regularly. However I am a bit wary of this Chinese stuff and always wonder if there is an internal short in the piece what could happen. There would likely be a protective fuse for the OBD port but why take the risk?

Got to experience the G-Scan tool on my Hyundai Creta for a short duration.

Slightly slow in terms of operation but options are a lot similar to the ones available in my LAUNCH x431 PRO. Only extra things are ECM and Key programming along with data analysis etc in the G-Scan.

Hi All,

I own a 2019 Hyundai Elite i20 Asta(O) Diesel.

I am looking for a good OBD adapter for personal use. Can you please suggest me something ideal and similar to the one Hyundai showroom guys have?

I have seen a bluetooth OBD adapter with the Hyundai service center guys connected to some app in a regular samsung tablet. Does anyone know which adapter and app they use in the Hyundai showrroms?

Please give me suggestions. Thanks in advance
