Overall Opinion: FIXD offers a ton of features for maintaining your vehicle and diagnosing issues at a relatively low cost. The FIXD sensor is easy to install in your vehicle by plugging it into the OBD-II port. Once the sensor is installed, you download the app to your smartphone and connect your phone to the sensor so the hardware and software can communicate. One downside of FIXD is there is no app for Windows or Mac, making it impossible to use if you do not own a smartphone. On the main screen of the app, you will see the year and model of your car along with any unresolved issues. From the main screen you can select multiple options, including Details for fault codes and explanations, Timeline for details about maintenance needs, and History for a log of previous issues with your car. On each section of the app, you can click on the Start Repair button to find a local auto mechanic or locate necessary parts. If your check engine light comes on, FIXD does not just display the fault code, but describes the problem, explains how severe the issue is, and gives you the possible consequences of driving with the issue. However, FIXD can only explain generic OBD codes, not specialty manufacturer codes. FIXD also alerts you when you need to take your car in for maintenance and specifies the exact maintenance your vehicle needs. The software does not keep track of driving date, though, including fuel pressure, average speed, and engine speed. Although other similar vehicle scanners have the ability to track this driving date, these scanners are almost double the cost of FIXD.
Pros: Relatively low cost compared to other similar car scanners Can turn off the check engine light once a repair is complete Sends alerts to the app when your car needs maintenance Provides links to mechanics and auto parts stores when you have an issue Easy to install and use
Cons: The FIXD sensor automatically charges while your car is running, and the app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play. Cons Does not provide data while you are driving like other similar scanners Lacks an app for Windows or Mac Only explains the generic codes, rather than the specialty codes from manufacturers Cannot perform pre-inspection checks
