Where can I find a decent bluetooth OBD2 device locally?
Want to use it with the app on my android.
Ebay has many to offer but I read mixed reviews (clones/copies).

Whilst we have a lot of sellers that stock items locally on our site - there are a lot of don't. Do a search with item location set to SA, in the filters section to make sure. That way there won't be any extra shipping charges.

For R250 - its probably worth the risk to see if it works or not. Nice find.

I've been using the OBDEleven and am very happy with it. Easy to setup and use (as long as you have an android device with connection to the internet)
