Since it uses the OBD2 port and reads the CAN bus, the radio / infotainment system should be irrelevant. It looks to me similar to a glorified (and much cheaper) snap-on or otc scanner.

It says that it passively listens to traffic on the CAN bus... I wonder if it will ever be able to transmit, I didn't see much info on this on the site.
