CACAGOO OBD-II Bluetooth Vehicle Diagnostic Scanner – Review

CACAGOO OBD II Bluetooth Vehicle Diagnostic Scanner   Review

Let me set the scene for you. As I mentioned just a short while ago, I’ve got an Audi A4. It’s an entire decade old and I’ve absolutely nailed it into the ground. I’ve not taken a great deal of care of it and have failed to service the thing for many, many years in a row. I’m continually staggered by the fact that it’s still chugging along but, somehow, it continues to do so.

Before I had a rather huge “STOP STOP STOP” warning, I had an array of pretty lights on my dashboard which I tended to ignore on a daily basis. I ignored some of them for a reason, like the brake sensor which failed after I had my brakes replaced. It shows that the pads are worn, even though they’re new. I also have a light telling me that there’s a bulb out on my number plate, but there isn’t. There’s also a few other lights that were on – one about the EGR valve, another indicating an engine management fault and so on.

CACAGOO OBD II Bluetooth Vehicle Diagnostic Scanner   Review

To understand what these lights mean, and what the all-encompassing “engine management warning” LED is trying to tell you, then you could take a trip to your local garage and pay almost £50 just to have a “diagnostic”. Now, this “diagnostic” usually involves some dude with a laptop and a cable. He’ll plug it into your car via something called an “OBD port”. “OBD” stands for an “On-Board Diagnostic System”. You’ll have seen me reviewing tracking and alarm systems (like this CarLock review) which plug into that port to let you know if your car has been stolen. Insurance companies will also offer magical dongles which go into this port to monitor your driving.

CACAGOO OBD II Bluetooth Vehicle Diagnostic Scanner   Review

Today we’ve got this CACAGOO Bluetooth diagnostic reader. Put simply, it plugs into your car and you connect to the thing with your phone via the magic of Bluetooth. No cables needed.

There’s an array of OBD-II apps on Google Play or the iTunes store to communicate with it and it’ll let you effectively find out what your car is doing.

CACAGOO OBD II Bluetooth Vehicle Diagnostic Scanner   Review

In short, instead of paying Halfords a massive £50 to plug their cable in, you can do the same thing for just £19.99 (or $21.99 on Amazon US) and keep it forever.

CACAGOO OBD II Bluetooth Vehicle Diagnostic Scanner   Review

Out of the box it’ll tell you to install this Mini OBD app (which is also available on the iPhone here) but, if I’m honest, you can choose from a dizzying array of apps – there’s stacks to choose from.

So, why would you need this thing? Well, for the “tinkerers” like me, you can actually find out what that error code on your car is. Depending on which app you choose, it’ll let you know what the problem is so that you can go to the garage and say, “It’s insufficient gas recirculation, I’ve had someone read the error code”. Boom, you’ve saved yourself £30-£50 instantly. If you’re an idiot like me you can also clear those error codes and then deny that anything is wrong until something goes “clunk” in the engine and all your oil dribbles out onto the road. Your choice.

OK, perhaps I should rephrase that. Let’s say that you want to service your car yourself and reset the service light. You could do that with this. You can also reset the brake warning lights and so on if you choose to swap the pads yourself.

However, your car can dish up a whole load more information too. The apps, depending on which one you get, can then display this information as you drive. You can perhaps grab an old smartphone and fix it to your dashboard and have additional information like MPG or engine temperature on display at all times. Or, if you want, you can have it showing your speed and engine revs – there’s also apps which will display dashboards to show your average speed and your driving style.

CACAGOO OBD II Bluetooth Vehicle Diagnostic Scanner   Review

Once you’ve plugged in the CACAGOO (weird name, I know) you simply pair it with your phone and the apps you choose to download can then read OBD fault codes, car performance, sensor data and more. Add the GPS from your phone and you can then get tracker logs which, combined with the OBD engine logging, show how fast you were going, what the engine was doing at the time too.

CACAGOO OBD II Bluetooth Vehicle Diagnostic Scanner   Review

Depending on your car, you can read the dynomometer data, horsepower, torque info, transmission temperatures, 0-60 speed timings, CO2 emissions, turbo readings and you can set alarms and warnings too.

Some apps, like Torque Pro, will let you graph data, and overlay OBDII data onto a video with GPS tagging too.

CACAGOO OBD II Bluetooth Vehicle Diagnostic Scanner   Review

If you decide to stick an old smartphone to the top of your dashboard, you can also have a cheap HUD (Head Up Display) by grabbing data from your engine (speed and revs plus gear selection etc) and displaying it onto your windscreen so that you can see it as you drive along. Apps like DashCommand can also give you trip information, such as drive time, fuel cost, start time, average speed, average fuel consumption, number of stops, braking and acceleration data, distance travelled in each gear and so on. It’s literally like opening a can of worms – you can find out so much information.

CACAGOO OBD II Bluetooth Vehicle Diagnostic Scanner   Review

Right, time for a couple of videos. First, lets have a look at what you can do with this cool little Bluetooth device..

Here’s a video showing that Torque Pro app I mentioned a moment ago…

You can also use apps like Carista to alter the way that your car behaves – such as changing the reverse sensor beep or whether you want the doors to automatically lock when you start driving.

CACAGOO OBD II Bluetooth Vehicle Diagnostic Scanner   Review

Powered by your car, the CACAGOO Bluetooth diagnostic reader can remain plugged in as you drive and flashes away to show connectivity. It’s powered by your car so you really don’t need to worry about it. Get it for £19.99 on Amazon UK or $21.99 on Amazon US. It’s worked absolutely perfectly for me. It’s small, really easy to install and does the job without fuss.

  • iClever BoostSound BTS07 Bluetooth Speaker – Review

    iClever BoostSound BTS07 Bluetooth Speaker   Review

    Remember our BTS08 review from the other day? Well, this is the smaller brother. It’s definitely easier to carry around and is a lot lighter. Likewise, it’s thinner at both ends and I found it pretty easy to fit into a coat pocket.

    This one, unlike the BTS08, is more suited to a camping trip or similar, but thanks to a large rubber “foot” at the bottom it can also sit quite steadily on a table or desk. It’s available from Amazon US for $29.99 but (as I type) has sold out on Amazon UK.

    iClever BoostSound BTS07 Bluetooth Speaker   Review

    The sound on this, like the bigger unit, is properly good. There’s perhaps not quite as much bass but, at 21.34 x 15.98 x 17.4 cm you’d expect that. Likewise, there’s two 3W speakers in this (instead of the combined 20W output on the BTS08) and you connect to it via the Bluetooth 4.0 connection or the 3.5mm audio port (hidden behind a big rubber flap). I should mention that, despite the big rubber buttons and the large rubber flap on the rear, it’s not advertised as being waterproof.

    iClever BoostSound BTS07 Bluetooth Speaker   Review

    The sound is clear and crisp and, as I’m becoming used to with iClever speakers, there’s no distortion or rattle. It performs well even at the maximum volume and, although it’s not going to blow the pictures off the walls, it’s a solid effort from something of this size.

    iClever BoostSound BTS07 Bluetooth Speaker   Review

    Charged by a microUSB cable (again, behind that flap), the lithium rechargeable battery will keep your music playing for around 10 hours, depending on your volume level.

    iClever BoostSound BTS07 Bluetooth Speaker   Review

    You can of course whack in a portable charger if you want to have it playing for longer – even if you’re in the middle of a field. The speaker also comes equipped with a battery-saving auto off function so you don’t accidentally run it dry.

    Up top, some nice push-button controls let you select the source, increase the volume (this changes the in-built smartphone volume), skip tracks and play / pause. You can also cancel and re-pair from here too.

    It feels like a solid beast and the mesh surround gives it a sturdy but polished appearance. Compared to other speakers I’ve looked at, this delivers a strong sound with good mid range, clear top-end notes and a fairly good bass response. It’s definitely going to be my speaker of choice if I need a speaker to go camping or to the beach for a picnic etc. A reliable and compact performer from a brand that is earning a fair amount of respect from us here at Coolsmartphone.

  • The new Kyocera rafre KYV40 – A phone you can wash

    The new Kyocera rafre KYV40   A phone you can wash
    Let’s be honest, there’s a few places where we use our smartphones quite a bit, and it’s always where we’ve got some “down time”. The smoking shelter outside of work (which has now changed from a horribly smelly place into a huge air freshener thanks to the vape / e-liquid / ejuice that is being smoked instead), the kitchen at work and yes – the toilet.

    All of these places aren’t exactly clean, and your hands are usually wrapped around some pretty dirty things before or after you use your smartphone. I’ve even heard (albeit on the grapevine) of some employers trying to block WiFi from reaching into toilets because people are spending too much time browsing while they perform their natural “business” on the loo.

    The new Kyocera rafre KYV40   A phone you can wash

    With all that bacteria on your phone, Japanese company Kyocera has come up with the ultimate solution – a phone you can actually wash with soap and water. The rafre KYV40 smartphone features a screen which can be used with wet hands or with gloves, and you can lather it up under a tap to get it shiny and clean. Not only that, but you can perform gesture controls to completely avoid using the screen – ideal for germophobes (hello Mr Trump).

    Powered by Android 7.0 (Nougat), it has a 5″ LCD screen and comes with 16GB of on-board storage plus a microSD slot. It also has 2GB RAM a 13-megapixel rear shooter and a 5 megapixel selfie one.

    Sadly only available in Japan, you can wash it and put it under a tap (basically, it’s waterproof), and you can take it in the bath with you too – just to add another place to use your phone while you’re taking a break. This is the first time we’ve actually seen a company pushing a “soap-proof” phone, and they’re also keen to promote it as your cooking companion – helping you create delicious meals but being completely washable afterwards, just like the pots and pans 🙂

    There’s no speaker hole on here either. Instead the rafre uses a “Sonic Receiver” to vibrate the sounds to your eardrums, using the display to resonate the sound.
