  • Bosch Professional products

    By Peter Kaing
    I love this professional scan software It’s very sharp.
  • It’s an ok unit.

    By Silvia007
    It gets the job done but doesn’t support ABS codes. There’s an option to add the feature but says my cars aren’t supported. I purchased the Bluedriver scan tool and it does everything the Bosch unit does and more for the same price. I gave this 3 stars because it does what it’s suppose to do.
  • Not working on iPhone X

  • Awesome product

    By Wendell1061
    This is an amazing OBD2 reader for the price. I am very impressed and I’m a professional mechanic. This will help hold me out until I’m able to save up for the evolve
  • iPad

    By Valdoq16
    When is the the app coming out for the iPad I love the Bosch 1050 because is portable but I also like to use my iPad and the iPhone iPad support is not big enough
  • Includes One CodeConnect

    By JALTraveler
    My experience is that this reader includes one free CodeConnect download for a single vehicle. The entire database is $39.99. I used the AutoID mode to download the free module to my iPhone. I downloaded this app, plugged in the reader and connected to the reader over Bluetooth. I connected to the reader over my iPhone in a location with a good data connection to my iPhone. The reader immediately wanted to download a firmware update. The firmware update required several planned manual re-connections between the reader and my phone (Settings --> Bluetooth --> U-Scan --> Connect). So it is important that this step is successful or you may end up with a brick if the firmware update is interrupted. I found two unknown error code thrown by car. I was able to find the meaning of the error codes by searching the Internet. My dealer was also able to confirm the meaning of the error codes by looking in the Service Manual.
  • Hawaii - $100 tool & additional $31.40 for ABS codes and definitions

    By Taro brand 808
    In Hawaii, this code reader costs roughly $100. The store clerk did not mention the additional $31.40 in-app purchase required for ABS codes and definitions. There's also an additional cost if you want airbag codes and definitions made available to your Bosch Mobile Scan phone app. So if you're in Hawaii, you're looking at over a $150 tool for all the features to be made available to you. I purchased this in order to compare against the KOBRA wireless OBD2 car code reader scan tool available on Amazon for $19.99 (before taxes, shipping). I haven't received it yet. Will post comment after its arrival and trying it out. So far, so good on the Bosch mobile scan tool. That is, after you make the additional purchase to release the codes and definitions for your vehicle. There is a cheaper option to spend a third the cost if you want to purchase the codes for only a single vehicle. But for $30, you get all the definitions. I didn't purchase the airbag codes so I can comment on that. I did notice that the tool has had a tendency to disconnect from the bluetooth connection. The app will tell you to reconnect. I had to close out the app, stop/restart my Bluetooth radio to restore connection to mobile scan tool several times to get a connection to stick. I was not able to test if the codes and definitions were available since the quick scan and OBDII/EODB tests both came back with "no codes found." What's strange is that the check engine light was on prior to my testing, but when I ran the quick check - the check engine light was no longer there and the results came back as "no codes found." I'm going to test another vehicle to see what other results I can find. I can't comment on whether or not it's worth the money and convenience to have this tool, but I have it now so I'm going to try and get the most mileage from it as possible. Overall, a three star rating. Removed one star for not advertising the need to spend an additional $30 for definitions on all vehicles (additional cost for other features) and a second star for the device's tendency to disconnect from Bluetooth. Bluetooth issue might be caused from RF interference and antenna placement but with such a small footprint on the device, I'm sure they did the best they could - I hope so anyway. I'm really interested to see how his stacks up against the cheaper $20 KOBRA scan tool.
  • Needs quick scan

    By Paliking
    Can you please add a quick scan function that doesn't require to input make and model
  • Works perfectly

    By Dr1vr
    I was a little unsure before purchasing the actual unit because my research showed little proof of what this 1050 and app were capable of. This is by far one of the best scan tools out there for the money for someone with a small fleet of vehicles or even the guy monkey wrenching around. Live data graphing works GREAT contrary to the only other review for the device I could find. This is the best you will get without spending big dollars I don't review much, this one is worth the effort... Awesome! Take your time and learn the menus It took me about a week to learn the layout and I've been using pro scan tools for 10+ years. One of the best investments for a do-it-yourself pretender ;)!
  • Works as described

    By Steve in Mi.
    Reads the codes fine, will erase the codes fine, will store the code history fine. Live view works fine You get all you need, you don't "have to pay" extra. It seems you need to connect and restart app for each use... big deal. Still works as advertised. To many crybaby idiots out there want $1500.00 foolproof performance from a $80.00 tool.
