FAQ

  • Why are you giving away this device for free?
    Market research shows that old vehicles have much higher fatality rate than new ones. 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 2,000,000 FREE nonda Smart Vehicle Health Monitors to boost your driving safety.

  • Would the Smart Vehicle Health Monitor drain my vehicle battery?
    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.

  • Do I need to pay shipping for the free device?
    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.

  • Will you collect my vehicle data, and what will you do about it?
    The ZUS app only collects data needed by the app features you are using. For example, if you want to use the Mileage Log feature for the tax deduction, the ZUS app will record your trip locations to meet the IRS requirement. Another example is the Auto Car Finder feature, which needs to record your parking location so that you can find your car back once you lose your vehicle.

  • Can I add multiple ZUS Vehicle Health Monitor Mini device under the same nonda account?
    No. If you create multiple car profiles under the same nonda account and add several device to each of them, it will cause connection issue in the ZUS app. So we strongly DON'T recommend adding multiple ZUS Vehicle Health Monitor Mini device under the same nonda account.

    I can confirm that this is legit. Got it before from a past deal posted here in OzBargain.

    Cost of delivery has gone up siginficantly from past deal posts (here & here) - previously USD $4.79 (~AUD $7.05)

    •  

      I noticed. I am still skeptical about the device performance, but they do have a 7 day refund policy which might be dependable? Either way pretty sure they're still making profits at $20.

    •  

      I can confirm. since the first deal was posted by me !!

    Got one from last deal. Never used it so can't vouch for anything… except the constant marketing for other stuff of theirs… I really should get around to unsubscribing. They'll send you daily ads for about a week then go quiet until next month

      Do what I do. When you need to use it, install the app and use as normal.

      Once done uninstall the app and reinstall as necessary.

    •  

      Yep same here - got mine but never used it

  •  

    I got one from a Facebook ad a while back, can confirm you'll get the device and it's not too bad, better than most of the junk you get on AliExpress… Never had a code to read or clear though so can't speak to that.

    Standard price is $7 delivered for an ODBII dongle.

    Why $22 shipping? I guess shipping from Columbia is not cheap.

    These are crap. Same as the $1 versions from aliexpress,avoid.

    I got one last time it was listed on ozbargain.

      Yep, can confirm this too. Wanted to buy one for a long time but the last deal i got one for free and found it to be crap.

      Yep, same as the cheap aliexpress ones

    I have asked my Toyota mechanic about this and he said

    These days the car's software is very sophisticated and you wouldn't want to add something strange to it.

    Even though the data show up with these devices is not accurate/reliable

    •  

      Its a simple obd2 reader.. it won't do anything to the car. The data is being read from the cars ECU so if its inaccurate, there is something wrong. The main issue with the cheaper ones is the refresh rate for the data.

    So you are aware of the scam, and still fall for it? Want to buy a bridge?

    I'll give this a ping. Couldn't find the support list but will see how we go!

    This thing sent my car into a check engine light and then see dealer. I through it away.

      Which did you throw away… The car or the thing?

  •  

    Got one, but need to wait about 6 months to here.

  •  

    Got one (I think it was cheap shipping one time).
    Not worth it at this price.

    Edit: I bought it for US$4.79 (including shipping) in Feb.

  •  

    I got one too from previous deals, it took exactly 4 months to get delivered. plugged into 2003 corolla, nothing showed up, then threw to shed somewhere ever since.

    Some mixed reviews on here, but I got two a while back when it was free + $7 shipping. Arrived in a month and it still works well (even on a 98 camry).

    it works …saved a mate who was stuck in van camping and can fault came up and it wouldn’t let car run, he went through full car scan and it cleared fault and allowed him to get to town to look into issue. i think for $5 bucks i paid for post last feb it is worth keeping in glove box.

    From previous deals- it drained batteries of cars. Dont let it plugged in for days.

    •  

      Mine potentially killed my battery (lead acids don't like to be discharged frequently).

  •  

    I left this in the obd2 port and didn’t think of it.
    After a week or two, the battery drained so had to recharge it. Would not recommend this as you probably won’t use it ever like myself

      Might be a reflection of your cars overall battery health. I've had one plugged in for a year now and never had a flat battery, but the battery in my car is fresh and i drive to/from work in it every day

    •  

      Same problem, never had an issue with my battery prior to leaving this in the odb port then sure enough my car started up rough for a few days.

      After ditching this device all together the car is starting up smooth again.

      Definitely don't leave it plugged in, not worth the risk or the cost of shortening the life span of your battery.

  •  

    I got one when shipping was $7

    Its worth what it cost me.

    Same as the cheapest other obd2 readers. I'd probably buy something else if i wanted to use one long term.

    If you want to use it to read fault codes, i'd go for a proper reader which are cheap enough these days

  •  

    Make sure your car listed in the compatibility list.

    I got mazda 3 2010 and it turns out not compatible (created a bunch of warnings on the car), got in touch with their support and got the refund on the shipping fee (as it was a free product after all)

  •  

    It’s not a SCAM. But I received mine recently after almost a year after ordering it, lol.

    It’s good quality device and very helpful to scan your car and monitor details.

  •  

    I have ordered it earlier and put it in my Ford Everest once to check it. After driving for about 2 hours It caused short circuit and it caught fire. I was just lucky that I was able to react fast and I was saved. It costed me significant amount of money to get the OBD port wiring replaced.
    I read more about it and read more comments online where people have complained about it getting melted..
    Not worth putting your vehicle at Risk…

  •  

    Highly not recommended. I have used this since 2 yrs but did not find useful. Its just good on paper. Recently removed it and threw in garbage as it would never show or alert about anything in my car and sometimes shows things that never had issue. I took my car to Honda service centre as it showed some alert on app and Honda experts confirmed there is nothing wrong.

    I got from last deal, tried to use it with my Toyota. Installed the app and it was major battery drain on my iPhone and wanted to track everything. Threw it after first try, wasted shipping cost.
