    has anyone used the more expensive OBD2 Bluetooth readers? apart from build quality and data rate is there any reason to get one?

    I got LUJII Mini OBD2 ELM327 V1.5 http://amzn.eu/6H8FsVu*from amazon for £11. Used on Jag XF 2013, it keeps dropping connections to phone so I would not recommend it. However company supplying it excellent and provided refund with no questions (leaving me with unit) suggesting I buy another as that would probably work better. So I probably had a duff unit.

    But it did work well enough to make me think I wouldn't mind getting a replacement and I wondered it anyone had tried more expensive units like the bluedriver or scan tool mx (especially jag owners) and if they really added any value over cheap versions or just get another cheap one and hope it works. below are two of the more expensive ones I have seen with good reviews.

    Quick note, bluetooth adaptors will not work with iphones, you need a WiFi version!

    Good point and it's there in the small print on the packages.

    I recommended you go with the WIFI or bluetooth version it just simple and easy with your apple device or android device if you need help picking a OBD2 you can visit reviews site https://obd2scannerguide.com/ or visit amazon they have a top seller list

    If you go with the ELM327 and the Torque app just make sure it's v1.4 or 1.5, the later versions won't play ball with our Jags, or most cars of that age.
