DescriptionNB: Requires a MobilScan OBD adapter - get it from www.mobilscan.dk. It will not work with other adapters.
We have apparently not been sufficient clear about supported cars:
As this is an OBD adapter, only EOBD/OBDII compatible cars are supported.
In EU, all cars sold since 2001(gasoline)/2004(diesel) are required to be EOBD/OBDII compatible.
As far as we can tell, most brands comply, but if you have a French car, you may want to check its compatibility.
You may have luck with older cars, too.

*** New in 2.2 ***
View your previous reports as 'My reports' (report page).
*** New in version 2.1.4 ***
* Sharing of snapshot report now also possible to facebook and similar services. Requires that you have the Facebook app installed.
* 'Real' fuel consumption calculation added - FOR GASOLINE/PETROL VEHICLES. This will only be visible on vehicles having MAF (Mass AirFlow), otherwise we simply don't have the necessary information. Note that the value may be visible also on diesel vehicles, but that calculated value is most likely completely wrong, then. We have no (sure) way of detecting a diesel, so in that case, you'll have to use the 'Energy burn' calculation instead.
* Take a screenshot and share it with yout friends. Available from the menu (or in the action bar if there's room).
*** New in version 2.1.3 ***
* New option: alternative layout - intended for 7-inch tablets, enabling them to apply the layout used for phones. Requires restart.
* Misc layout improvements for tablets.
* Instrument ranges enhanced.
* New option: snapshot file format. Some mail clients don't like HTML, so now you may chose to send the snapshot as an attached ZIP file.
* New option: show your location in snapshot reports. Made optional for privacy reasons.
* New option: show 'Send log'. Enables the 'Send log' menu on the report page (we got a lot af these logs, probably not intentionally...)
* Bug fixes
*** New in version 2.0 *** :
* User interface revised.
* Improved use of tablets' larger display.
* Data recording - a sensor value that's currently shown is also logged. The collected data is available in the Snapshot Report in graphical and/or tabular format.
* New derived value: Energy burn. Works for diesel vehicles, too!
* Demo mode - built-in ECU simulator
Now you do not need to drive on with the MIL light on.
Now you do not need to wait to go to the garage with your car to know what is wrong.
Now you can prepare the garage by knowing what is wrong.
Now you can see what is wrong with your car on your holiday so that you know if you can drive on.
And all this for less than what most garages take for doing the same test once.
The system comprises an this app and an OBD Bluetooth adapter you either buy at the local dealer or online.
MobilScan gives access to car information as defined by the ISO standards about OBD, this means that you can read out fault codes, continuously receive and display a full list of engine parameters like oxygen sensor readings, air mass, temperature sensors and other parameters used by the engine control computer (ECU).
When you want to capture the current state of the car, you may send a 'snapshot report'. MobilScan compiles information about the current state of the car, and allows you to send this as a HTML report to a receiver of your choice (e-mail, Bluetooth, ...)
NB! The MobilScan software is free, but we're trying to make a living from this, and you'll have to buy the corresponding MobilScan OBD adapter from us. Please contact email@example.com for pricing and availability in your region. If you are already a MobilScan customer, you may use your existing OBD adapter.

Version 2.0 uses the ActionBarSherlock framework to implement action bar support on early Android versions. If you're a developer: try it!
