Recently, my girlfriend’s car’s “overheat” light started glowing, ultimately resulting in a trip to the local mechanic. Unfortunately, all the mechanic did was hook the car up to their computer, and after looking at the readings for a solid three minutes, they pronounced the car as not having any problems, and charged us fifty bucks. A week later, the car had the same problem, effectively proving the mechanic wrong. If I would have had the GoPoint GL1, I could have hooked my iPhone up tot he car, and gotten the same diagnostic information the mechanic charged us for. It wouldn’t have fixed the car, but we’d still have that fifty bucks.
