Vgate vLinker FD vs FD+

Post by infidel »

I see forscan recommends Vgate vLinker FD
https://forscan.org/download.html
The Link to amazon.de has 2 BT versions, vLinker FD and FD+.
The plus one is BTLE 4.0 . Should i get that one since my phone supports it? Or should i stick to the 3.0?
Anyone used the FD+?

Get a version that supports both the smartphone and a laptop. You will have the best of both worlds.

Thank you for the answer.

I already purchased an OBDLink EX (USB) adapter.
I want to code some things and i am not taking any chances with bluetooth or poor quality adapter

Pretty good price for Europeans and you can also skip VAT if you have a VAT number for European transactions

I just want the bluetooth adapter to monitor DPF status and other engine parameters.
And i was wondering if the vLinker FD+ also worked. But i decided to order the FD since its also recommended by forscan
