No, lexia does a lot more than an app and dongle.

It's in the article. OBD is very limited compared to lexia.

OBD doesn't even connect to some of the older diesel C3 computers so lexia is a must for those.

My OBD dongle reported one code, which can mean a whole variety of things.... I just used diagbox (lexia) for the first time the other day and it reported about 5 errors.

I think my friend tried the dongle and couldnt clear his error(s). This is not a problem for the lexia (permanent errors will just come back obviously).
