When it comes to OBD II scanners, they aren’t created equal. When you need something that offers more than the others, you should consider the FOXWELL NT614.
It is a Bluetooth OBD II scanner that pairs with your smartphone via a dedicated application for Android or iOS. It is also compatible with Apple CarPlay.
This unit works very well as a standalone OBD2 scanner or as an app on your phone. It reads all OBD2 protocols and offers many functions via the free FOXWELL App.
This article will explain the good, bad and just plain ugly about the FOXWELL NT-614. We review thousands of products per year and our very honest reviews are appreciated by our readers. We are extremely proud to have earned their trust.

Look and Feel
The NT614 is a compact unit, measuring 13.19 x 8.86 x 3.11 inches (W x H x D) and weighing in at 3.05 pounds. While the NT614 is the smallest member of the NT series, it still offers a very nice and crisp display.
The unit is easy to hold and has a rather solid feel to it. The USB port as well as the OBD port is easy to reach and are positioned in a logical way.
THe unit also comes with a very nice protective case, which is appreciated.
The unit offers USB and Bluetooth connectivity. The Bluetooth module connects to your smartphone via its bluetooth module. The USB port is used to save and back up your data. The USB cable will also provide power to the NT614, which is really nice.
The scanner was tested with both android and iOS devices with no problems while using the bluetooth option. The FOXWELL app felt comfortable and responsive on both smartphone platforms.
FOXWELL’s NT-614 scanner comes with a huge list of features. It can easily handle things like ABS/ESP resets. We especially like the freeze frame function because it allowed us to look at nearly anything in more detail if we needed it to. This is a very handy function for showing your mechanic something.
The unit also has support for 13 languages. It also connects to the internet via computer or smartphone to keep its DTC library updated.
The AUTOVIN function instantly found our test vehicle’s VIN number once connected. This helped it find our vehicle info through the internet diagnostic database.
We put the NT-614 through its paces, simulating things such as TPMS (tire pressure), TPS (throttle position sensor) and EPB (electronic parking brake) problems. The scanner accurately diagnosed every problem we could throw at it.
Although a very powerful scanner, the NT-614 proved to be easy to use overall. It is more than capable of handling OBD and OBD II vehicles.The live data merging was also veryquick and accurate.
