    I'd of thought such a device would be paired with a peice of software.. find the brand of the Bluetooth OBD dongle and a quick Google should reveal the relevant software.

    Yeh i wanted one for my iphone, dosent look like it supports it at all, it wont even register as a bluetooth device on my phone, going to get my nephew to buy the app and borrow his phone to see if it works, alot of faffing to be fair, its a shame i havent got the readys for a proper vcd cable. How are you any way mate?

    No worries dude, ill get it one evening over wifi, then give you a shout.

    Yea did go last night, was ok, bit quiet as its still quite cold, but the cars that were there were off a very high calibre!!

    Dont worry about your car being dirty dude, it was too dark to notice by the time we got there anyway....

    If I go with Jojo, our aim is to get there before 9pm (KFC Closes then!!)

    I am looking at dashcommand which works for iPad and iPhone and uses a bluetooth device ... I will also download the pro version of torque for android which will use the same Bluetooth device.
