    What do you think is fake about 5G on 600 MHz? The fact that it will not do Gbps does not make it fake. Gbps is not a requirement or design goal of 5G where the bandwidth is not available.

    The $20 refurbs come and go being available - no way to know when. Check occasionally over days-weeks if you can afford to wait. Otherwise, $30 more for a new one isn't much for something that will...

    Yes, it remains to be seen how much they tie it into being plugged in a car OBD. My speculation is that it is locked down tight. Someone should try it.

    The power pins are 5-ground and 16-power.
