can anyone have a vLinker ?
maybe it will work with the IPC
it costs about half as much as the OBDLink MX

I already have one in order for tests. ;)
We all need to cooperate in this interesting project!

How does this work, simply plug the unit into the obd port and its the extra menus are there?

Do you have a how to guide?

No, you must install to your android phone gmprog app and make registration on www.gmprog.com. Then you allow more functions. ELM may not always be connected, only for activation.
