I tried that once and it does work.  Its accuracy is subject to the
accurate operation of the car's O2 sensor, since that is controlling the
frequency valve.  I would think of it as a quick check, rather than a
substitute for checking with a standalone meter.  It shows that the system
is operating and thinks it's happy.
