I bought two of these ELM327 Bluetooth interfaces from this supplier to keep one in the glovebox of each of my cars... https://www.gearbest.com/car-gadgets/pp_130571.html?wid=1433363

A mobile device with a suitable app is then required, for simply reading and clearing engine/powertrain diagnostic trouble codes then for an Android device I recommend the free 'Torque Lite' app which works very well on every car I've used it on.

had a play with it over the last week or so and it works a treat on every car i plugged it in to

it's a bit tricky setting the software up ( after all it is a clone ) but once set up it will do pretty much everything you can through the ODB port

there are three of these hardware boxes doing the rounds the delphi clone ( the one i bought ) a Wurth WOW clone and another i can't remember the name of but the point is there all the same hardware the only difference is the firmware uploaded to them to suit the software used.
the better diagnostic software is the Wurth WOW which can be found quite easily on the web but will not work with the delphi hardware ( R3 CDP + VCI OBD2 ) in it's native form but there is some modified firmware ( ver 1622 ) which again can be found quite easily which will work with delphi and WOW without the need to swap out firmware every time you decide to use one or the other programs as long as each program has the same 1622 firmware in the firmware folder and of course the 1622 firmware has been uploaded to the hardware.

might sound a little daunting but once you get your head round it it's pretty straight forward.
the software runs on windows 10 just fine iv'e installed both programs on my laptop and a 10" windows tablet running windows 10
the tablet takes longer than the laptop to do things but it still works, the laptops is an I7 so you sort of expect the tablet to be slower

all the diagnostics is done through bluetooth but firmware uploading to the box is done through the supplied usb lead
the usb lead can be used for diagnostic purposes as well if you don't fancy bluetooth but i prefer not to have the lead and use it wirelessly

i have the foxwell NT630 pro as well but the delphi clone does a lot more and it's cheaper :)

I have a Launch CRP129 which is good and does airbags and ABS codes but it's not the cheapest.

I might investigate the Wurth WOW clones when i get paid again as an all singing and dancing system.
