Erm..What On Earth Does OBD-II mean?

OBD stands for On-Board Diagnostic (and OBD-II or OBD2, was simply the second generation).  It's been around since the mid 1990s and is a standardised interface that provides controlled access to certain data from your car's engine control unit (ECU).  It's accessed by plugging in a compatible device, like GOFAR, into a standardised, 16 pin port, usually living under your steering wheel.  

Finding the OBD port can be a fun challenge but you never need to get your hands dirty or pop the bonnet as it must be within 90cm of the steering wheel.

When Did Cars In My Country Get OBD Ports?

All cars in the USA have been "OBDII compliant" since 1996.  The OBDII port was introduced into cars to make emissions testing easier.  The USA (and particularly California) led the way and gradually this standard has been adopted all around the world.  

Below is when the standards were mandated in the following countries.  Imported cars will usually comply with their country of manufacture.
