Opinions on FixD ODB2 code reader

Has anyone used this device along with a smartphone app to read engine codes? I need to buy a better scanner that will do ABS, SIR and transmissions codes. This meets my budget for around $60.

Let me know what you think.

Thanks!

I bought one off the eBay for about a dollar. Just does codes. Not sure on the abs and such. Pretty handy.

So this is what I ended up with for Christmas. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

So far it works far better than my old one. The downside, each time you connect it you need to enter year, make and model of the vehicle but with that it will give you live data. I have found that helpful. Having the ability to pull ABS codes is nice too.
