BetterWeigh Mobile Towing Scale Review
I've decided to split the review into two videos. This first one will cover the installation of the OBDII port device and a look at the companion smartphone app.
Once I get the device and app up and running, I perform several of its many mobile weigh scale functions. First up is the truck weight test followed by payload, fifth-wheel trailer pin, and boat trailer tongue weight measurements.
In part two, I'll be back with road test performed hooked up to our Keystone Cougar fifth-wheel trailer and my wife's boat trailer. We'll test trailer weights, combined weights, and the trailer brake gain adjustment. Then give you my likes and dislikes of this interesting little gadget.

In this second video, I take my wife's boat and trailer out for a tow weighing test and stop at a landfill to get a real scale weighing to compare. The BetterWeigh was close but not close enough and consistent enough for me. I find there are too many mechanical and user variables involved during calibration and testing to produce consistent results.
Therefore in my opinion the BetterWeigh Mobile Scale is an interesting gadget but not an accurate way to weigh the rig, truck, or payload. It may however act as a rough guide letting you know definitely need to visit certified scales.
