Has anyone use one of these before? I was gifted one and have not installed it yet, mainly the app because the connector is just a plug in. It's supposed to communicate car information to your phone via bluetooth. I am going to play with it and post results. Here's the website

general heavy-duty 728x90


general heavy-duty 468x60


general heavy-duty 250x250

These have been flooding the market in all different brands. As a DIYer it's pretty cool but a little more money and you can buy a scan tool. However, I'd be interested in how much value the app brings which would be the differentiation. Will it just tell you a code or can you see other data?

Here's an article about it

Fixd Maintenance Club

To add a bit more value to owning a Fixd device, the company now offers a service called the Fixd Maintenance Club.

The premise behind the Fixd Maintenance Club is simple: you use the company's device to see what's wrong or when you need an oil change or new air filter, but then you head to the garage to have that work done. Instead, you can send your car information to Fixd and through its Maintenance Club, the company will send you the parts you need to do the work yourself.

Through its club, Fixd will send to you "specific maintenance items based on your upcoming maintenance interval," based on the year, make, and model of your car. 

Fixd's service lets you choose for yourself when your maintenance kit should ship, but you can customize when you get it and what's included in the box.

Being a member of the Fixd Maintenance Club is free, but the company does charge for the parts. Prices vary depending on the maintenance work and the parts you request.

      Continental now offers an ultrasonic backup-sensor kit that can be retrofitted to or incorporated as OEM for virtually any vehicle including commercial vehicles, RVs and off-highway, agricultural and material-handling equipment.
      Out of the box, the ultrasonic backup-sensor kit provides an audible alarm to the operator when the vehicle comes within 10 feet of an object and beeps faster as the driver gets closer to the obstacle. The kit also can customized for specific distance intervals to meet OEM specifications.
      The innovative backup system delivers a voice announcement of object distance at specific intervals and easily integrates with on-board camera/monitor systems, according to Continental. When paired with a backup camera system, a monitor will display an overlay, revealing the active sensor(s) and the object distance from that sensor.
      “Backup sensors are an essential component of operator and workplace safety in modern vehicles,” notes Jared Hall, Continental product manager. “The Continental ultrasonic back-up-sensor kit can be fitted to a wide variety of vehicles including commercial trucks, buses, RVs, fire trucks, garbage trucks and agricultural vehicles, as well as construction, mining and material handling equipment.”
      The Continental ultrasonic backup-sensor kit is easy to set up and simple to configure as a retrofit or original equipment installation, according to the company. The kit includes four sensors, a central control unit and a speaker. Cameras, and monitors are available from Continental as options.

      Continental has launched a redesigned website for its REDI-Sensor multi-application TPMS-sensor program.
      The new website at
      link hidden, please login to view, features a wide range of TPMS training and educational resources for professional technicians and shops. It also introduces and showcases the next generation of REDI-Sensor TPMS sensors, which can replace more than 290 different OE sensors and provide coverage for more than 150 million VIO with only four sensors. A key feature of the new REDI-Sensor site is the “Training Central” section, which houses a portfolio of training resources aimed at educating professional technicians on the latest TPMS knowledge and service techniques. The section includes signups for live webinars hosted by Continental’s own TIA-certified instructors and allows visitors to access previously held webinars on-demand.
      Upcoming Webinars
      Continental is hosting two upcoming live webinars on April 20 and April 27, which will focus on the new generation of REDI-Sensor TPMS sensors. The training webinars are open to all service pros and Training Central offers easy way to sign and participate at https://www.redi-sensor.com/trainingcentral/.
      In addition to webinars, the section features a video series on TPMS Tech Tips, service tips for professionals, a TPMS FAQ section and information on the complete REDI-Sensor multi-application TPMS line.
      The REDI-Sensor website provides an exceptional application lookup that makes it easier for technicians to quickly identify the right product for their TPMS needs. It uses a year/make/model search function to help determine the correct TPMS-sensor and service parts needed, while also providing the latest sensor installation and relearn instructions, service tips and how-to videos. A “Where to Buy” feature has been added to help shops find the best location to purchase the REDI-Sensor TPMS sensor and service parts they need.
      The site also features a section for drivers that includes some everyday FAQs on TPMS, information on the importance of TPMS for driving safety and a blog with articles on TPMS, tire service and safety tips. The site was built with a responsive-first design template, allowing it to be easily accessed and navigated on mobile devices as well as laptop and desktop computers.
