    Re: Wifi obd adapter?

    Yup, worked well for basic fault codes and logging.
    Used the android app not the iPhone one.

    Much point in going for a Wifi one? Any benefits over the Elm327 Bluetooth ones?

    oooooooooooo

    I tried the wifi and iphone/ipad with REV and DashCommand route - gave up in the end. Will try again when the car is running. There is also a bluetooth app on cydia for jail broken devices that supposed to be a get around for the limits of iOS.
    Heard the torque android app is much easier.

    Re: Wifi obd adapter?

    I got the Bluetooth one from eBay for 20$ and it works perfectly. I've had it for one year now, the bad thing is everybody calls me when they have a cel on now.

    When you guys say laggy do you mean in real time or the results are crap? Does it log the information to look at later/safely not while you're driving? Really don't want to spend £225 on a Liquid Gauge when I have a redundant iPhone 3GS in my drawer. Is it just a case of mounting the phone, adding the OBD connector and an app - what app is best, Dash Command as above or others?

    Realtime is a little laggy... tbh I use Torque more than my liquid at the moment as for idle curiosity as to whats going on its perfect...

    I have not used it for logging but tbh would only ever use VCDS or ME7Logger

    Can't speak for the iphone though as I think the app for that is called Revs and uses the more expensive wifi dongle...

    Oil temp is not an ECU function... its the instruments module that handles that... I suspect Torque doesn't talk to any module other than the ECU and even then its not perfect... I am still trying to get the EGT PID working and it doesn't see alot of VAG extended OBDII codes on a scan

    These devices are OBDII compliant, so you only get the emission related info required by law. Still good to have, but will never have VCDS level of detail. If you have the MIL lamp illuminated, these will tell you why as it is emissions related in order for MIL to trigger.

    Also, Wifi is needed for iOS as Apple doesn't support the serial bluetooth protocol.
