True.

I've read in the ~$500 range for battery service, but the local dealer only charged me about $245 net for a new 808 battery after tax and core return. I'm about $80-90 deep in Carly stuff with the app, adapter, and coding add-ons so that's already easily paid itself off twice over just on my battery replacement, so I'll try not to complain too much.
The stealership stuck me with a $630 bill to have my battery replaced and registered... They refunded me the money after I got the local news station involved.

That whole job only took me about 15 minutes including coding and resetting my clock. They must give the car the happy ending for the $200+ in labor. Haha.
LOL... That's probably why they offer a free wash afterwards.

My elm wifi dongle stopped working. I'm not sure but I think with the latest upgrade to the app you now need to use their proprietary wifi dongle for iOS.

I'm using a generic wifi adapter and works fine coding FRM and others.

Weird. I wonder why mine stopped working?
