Customer reviews

Operating it is very easy and installing it is just as simple.

Andreas G.

PACE is very small. I have also not found anything comparable with similar features.

Marcel R.

A combination of fascinating gadget and ingenious tool. Understanding the own car better is just a lot of fun.

Mathias P.

The screens are very clearly structured, self-explanatory, clean and can be intuitively operated.

Kai V.

It is a really innovative connection between driver and car; thanks to the helping information, I can better understand, feel and newly rethink driving itself.

Norman J.

It gives me information about my car which my car does not offer me: the temperature of my coolant for example. The fuel-consumption bar in the app is great.

Alexander S.

This is finally a tool which has earned its name. It can show so many things – I had to use several apps at the same time bevore.

Thomas T.

Fantastic product, very innovative; you cannot get the same from any car manufacturer at the same price. Great!

Carsten M.

Very thought-through technology; very easy to operate, many benefits.

Daniel L.

Works very well and using it is so easy – anyone can do it.

Adrian P.

The first OBD2 plug which works immediately without any problems and without me having to press another button after starting the engine.

Alexander S.

I use it in two cars and I'm thrilled!

Dirk M.

Great solution which combines many features (which cost a lot if bought from the car manufacturers); it can be retrofitted and plugged into another car without any problems anytime.

Installing it is easy. You just download the PACE app onto your smartphone, sign up with your email address and plug in the dongle into the OBD2 port of your car.


The feature Automatic Emergency Call is ingenious and should be standard in every car.


The smartphone furthermore directely translates trouble codes into plain text and gives first estimates about whether you can drive on or whether you should visit a workshop right away.


At one glance, users gain an overview of a wealth of important information about their cars and their style of driving.


Instead of a long search for your parking spot, you can quickly locate and find your car with the PACE Find-my-Car Feature. Your smartphone will navigate you directly to your car.

Connect your car with Bluetooth LE

This port is a legal requirement for all cars in Europe built since 2001 (gasoline cars) and 2004 (Diesel cars). Moreover, manufacturers voluntarily equipped most cars built since 1996 with it.

Is your car compatible with PACE?

With our Compatibility Check, you can make sure whether your car is compatible with PACE and where you can find the OBD2 port at www.pace.car/cars.

You can also find more information about this in the manual of your car.
