Default Bluetooth ODP2 tool

Can anyone tell me what the difference is between the functions available for this Bluetoooth unit and the hard wired Lexia

TIA

Don't take my word for it, but isn't just a code reader.

There really isn't enough time to type out all the differences.

Basically The proper diagnostic which you call lexia does everything the Bluetooth unit does except connect to the computer via Bluetooth and a whole lot more.

It can correctly diagnose the ABS ecu, Seatbelt ecu and others the Bluetooth device cannot.

It can read live data for many items including individual injector parameters.

It can program the cars various ecu's

It is a working diagnostic aid to help locate faults and assist in repairs rather than being a slightly sophisticated toy.

Oh and it works unlike the four Bluetooth devices I have personal experience with I've never come across a working Bluetooth elm device, especially one at that price.

Thanks and 'nuff said Storeman

I thought it would be a very limited unit - and how limited is 'does nothing'

Thanks for your input too Mark

To be honest, I've read on other forums were people have managed to get these Bluetooth devices working and all they use them for is to connect to the torque app on their phones to display dials & displays that the car doesn't have i.e. a rev counter or mpg display. Apparently the torque app can reset the eml and clear a limited number of faults but if you have a Peugeot / Citroen and want to maintain it yourself then you cannot really get better than the Actia hardware and PP2000 or Diagbox which also has the Lexia software for Citroen.

I assume that the one I linked in my OP is a cheaper version of the Actia you refer to.

Although it would be handy to have (for the money) I don't see me using it regularly - but as we are not near any garages (closest about 15 miles away) I thought it may be handy to diagnose any warnings/errors that appear in order to determine a course of action.

My first priority though is to change the radio - but that's another story

Actia is the name of the device and Lexia is the Citroen software. That unit is probably the same thing though some of the Chinese clones aren't as good as others . I've read that some units don't work on 307's and certain Citroens but never really heard anyone say they bought a unit that didn't work.

They're crap for code reading and clearing. Mine didn't detect the egr and glow plug faults that planet did

I have one and it only can work on the published obd2 standard. You can see a bit of simple engine parameters and fault codes.

Thing is all manufactures have gone way beyond the obd2 standard and have multiple ECU's and functions that the published standard has no idea about and can't talk to.

Which is why you need either the full manufactures spec diagnostic kit (lexia/planet) or a middle ground device like cpd devices.

The real kit costs thousands so a Chinese clone is the only option for most of us.

Cheapish Bluetooth obd2 reader from amazon and the torque app for android phone will give you the ability to read and clear codes, also send the current engine data like turbo boost, throttle position etc etc.
