Hello everyone I'm new to this forum, my name is Dennis, and I saw an app on Facebook today it's called Fixd, it's supposed to be a little box that plugs into or underthe dash, has anyone used this device and does it work on Nissan patrol to diagnose little problems or fix engine lights and other little things

G'day,

Apart from the fact that people flogging that app use terrible graphics and their site sucks, it is only good for vehicles with OBD2 capabilities which with an exception of common rail version of ZD30 (post 2007) none of the Patrols are capable. 

I still don't get what is so special about that app apart from massively invasive anti privacy features, tracking, push notifications and other crap. It just another marketing hype where it will suck unsuspecting customers in to who knows what repair schemes.  You can easily get $10 OBD2 ELM327 adapter and $5 + Torque app doing the same and still have your privacy!

Especially with this little blurb gem:

"Never worry about the condition of your family’s cars and protect them no matter where they are.  Install a FIXD sensor in each family member’s vehicle so you can remotely monitor the health and status of their vehicle and be there for them in their time of need."

What a shonky!
