    I do the same thing in my car use a blue tooth obdii monitor with phone. Thought about mocking up a tablet holder or something but just don't drive the car enough to be worth that.

    We have all seen the videos of the Jeeps and Corvettes that have been hacked into remotely, and while our cars are not as computer dependent, I figure the risk is still there.
    As I see it this is just a monitor device
    So maybe, all be it far fetched someone might be able to clear your codes.

    This does not have Bilateral communications...
