So ordered 2 to Australia (Shipping fees 8 AUD each).

QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
Q. Why are you giving away this device for free?
A. US Cars are on average 11.8 years old1, and the fatality rate is four times higher in those old vehicles. As the leading connected car company in the US, nonda is committed to protecting people's journey behind the wheel through innovative products and technology. To deliver our social commitment and growing our business at the same time, we've decided to give away 1,000,000 FREE nonda Smart Vehicle Health Monitors to boost American Drivers' safety.
Q. Would the Smart Vehicle Health Monitor drain my vehicle battery?
A. All Vehicles' OBD II ports have constant power supply even if the engine is turned off. No matter what OBD II adapter you are using, it'll drain your vehicle battery eventually if you don't drive for a long time;
Our New Smart Vehicle Health Monitor Lite is the smallest one in the market and only requires 5-8mA of power to run. It is 100% safe to leave it plugged in if you drive your car frequently. However, we highly recommend that you unplug this device if you won't drive your vehicle for a long time, just like you'll unplug all appliances when you leave home for long vacations.
Q. Do I need to pay shipping for the free device?
A. Yes you do. We use USPS first-class package shipping for US orders and standard postage package mail for international ones. You only need to pay the same amount of what our shipping provider charges us.
Q. Is there any hidden fees in using the device?
A. No, there isn’t. After you receive the free smart vehicle health monitor, you can download our free ZUS Smart Driving Assistant App and start to use it simply by pairing the device with the app. All the functions mentioned above are 100% free with no catch.
Q. Will you collect my vehicle data, and what will you do about it?
A. We'd only collect your engine and trip data with your consent. All data collected will be solely used to enhance your driving safety and experience without any privacy breaching. nonda is a GDPA and CCPA compliant entity.

        If it saves an American/Australia/Indian/Chinese/insert any country does it matter? If they wanted to lock it down they would have not allowed international shipping. Arguably better driver training will save more lives than an OBD dongle, but at least they are trying- although it’s probably just a marketing tactic.

        •  

          This has nothing to do with driver training. Driver training doesn't stop parts of your car failing due to it being too old / not serviced properly.

          Does that mean food trucks should verify someone is in need before the give food?

          • +1 vote

            @Bryanalves: You obviously missed my point. Im saying that if these guys wanted to save more lives, investing in driver training would be better than giving out a dongle. Who would you rather be on the road with - someone who has defensive driver training or someone with this dongle? Regardless of the car condition i'm picking the person with more skills. This is a marketing ploy - but im not complaining.

      I have another ODB2 reader, which showed some weird errors, after my car stalled twice. Took it to the garage, and they could not find any fault errors AT ALL, using their own readers. If this works I might buy a second one and send it to them, so they might be able to also read error codes.

      • +4 votes

        Not all car problems bring up error codes. Some require good ol fashioned fault finding.

        •  

          exactly. like if a vacuum hose comes loose.

        •  

          Funny thing was that I could read error codes, and the garage could not. This sucks.

      OBD2, not OBD11

    •  

      OBDeleven has coding for VWAG cars, which is the main reason you buy it. OBD2 readers are cheap since it mainly reads and clear codes only, but for $8 is great value just to keep around the garage.

      If it's only for America they wouldn't ship internationally.

    The Amazon one seems to be the 'full' version, not the 'lite' one here. Anyone know the difference?

    edit: Also do these things generally let you write to the car's computer, for example editing mirror folding functionality and that sort of thing? Or am i thinking of some other product?

    •  

      You're thinking of another product, though still one that communicates over obd2. These can only "write" by clearing codes - definitely engine codes, maybe not for other modules (abs, srs, body modules).

      •  

        ahh…balls

        Oh well. Might still be good for a 5-minute tinker.

    •  

      You want one of these
      https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Viecar-4-0-Bluetooth-V4-0-BLE-OB...

      But use the 'Carista' app on your phone which requires a monthy fee to access the 'custom' section to edit your cars dealer level functions

      AU$ 53.99/year or AU$ 14.99/1-week pass

      •  

        The app clearly says it can 'personalise the behaviour of your car's lights, windows…." etc, so I get that

        But re. the hardware, what sets that Viecar gadget apart from this nonda thingy? Amazing as its claims are ("smallest body and more chips in the world"…sounds like the premise of a fat person's dream), it doesn't say anything about car personalisation?

        •  

          Here is why

          https://www.carscanner.info/choosing-obdii-adapter/
          http://priusapp.com/ - click on 'What OBDII to buy' at top

          FYI the VIECAR and the CARISTA dongles are exactly the same. When you run the app it askes if you have a generic ELM327 or the 'Carista" dongle and you select that if you have the viecar. The ELM327 clones cannot access all the prtocols required for proper ecu communication, as you can read in those websites ive linked above.

  •  

    Did they have non-lite version?
    I don't see any on their website

    •  

      yeah, the non-lite version is what's listed on amazon au. It's a physically bigger unit, according to the photos.
