My OBDLink LX has not caused any such problems with Speck.
Some devices work, some don't. The ones we had problems with worked perfectly fine and haven't given any trouble in 4 years in various gm's, ford, Hyundai and dodge's I've tried. I even tried them in all my junk I had with no problems, just had problems with the Mirage for some weird reason. The Mirage has a crazy sensitive electrical system. Doesn't help matters having such thin wiring throughout. As I discovered, even the slightest sign of corrosion in a connector will cause an assortment of weird problems.
So...Any luck on your car? Hope we(me) didn't raz you too much about that obd dongle gps wifi hotspot thingy.
Also interested in reading an update.
Any news, longhairmike?
Wish I could say the same about that other thread with the noisy pulley. I miss that guy already His phone/computer is probably in a million pieces by now lol
