About Us

We are a small team of Engineers with more than 30 years of experience in software applications.

About two years ago, we decided to enter into the field of OBD scanners with the desire to provide a solution with a simple and attractive user interface, to offer a better user experience.

Chkobd’s vision is to provide End-Users with a simple and attractive software solution to read, display and store car computer system data, using the standard OBD port in cars made after 1996.

Our software is readily available through the  iOS (iPhones and iPads versions) and Android (phones and tablets) “app stores”.

 The basic version, free of charge, will offer more code definitions in the near future, and those will require optional “in app purchases”.

We are a software company. Our software does require a compatible OBD Bluetooth Adapter to pass the codes to the ChkODB app. The ChkOBD software is compatible with a large selection of OBD adapters already present in the market.

These adapters connect with the OBD port (mechanically and electronically) and be able to connect to our applications via the Bluetooth wireless “standard”.

We have listed Adapters that have been tested with our application on the Adapters page.  We will also update list of compatible adapters that have been tested for compatibility with our app on iOS and Android phones and tablets as we get feedback from early adopters of our app.

If you already own an adapter, feel free to download our free app to find out if it’s compatible with our application. If you find it doesn’t work, please let us know and we will try to evaluate why and see if we can make it compatible in future releases. And, if it does work, even better, let us know so we can update the Adapters list.

If you have any questions about our products, do not hesitate to contact us via the “Contact Us or Support pages.

We would like to thank you for your interest in our products and hope you a very good user experience.
