Re: OBDII wifi dongle and Ipad app

I have an Android tablet and bought a BAFX Products Bluetooth OBD2 scan tool from Amazon and the Android Torque app.

Looking at Amazon there are a few wifi odbii dongles that will work with the iPad, but I haven't had any direct experience with any of them so I can't help with a recommendation.

Re: OBDII wifi dongle and Ipad app

I use the BAFX Products - Bluetooth OBD2 scan tool paired to my andriod phone. It allows you to read and clear codes and the display of realtime data. Although not all data is displayed. I can tell you which are if interested.

Re: OBDII wifi dongle and Ipad app

It would be nice to have full access to the cars functions.
One day we will be able to reconfigure the entire car and show what we want and where we want it and how we want to use it.
It is very easy to do IF Chrysler allowed it.

I am thinking of getting one of these - be interested in what it displays real time?

Re: OBDII wifi dongle and Ipad app

Here are the available sensors when I'm connected to the ECU.

What readings do you get from the DPF sensor ?

Nothing apart from static minus 40 degrees. Seems sensor not feeding ECU input.

Re: OBDII wifi dongle and Ipad app

I am about to embark on this journey of OBDII info, and for an old bloke I find it a bit daunting. So forgive me the simple question I want to ask first up; where does the OBDII device plug in?
I read on another thread that it's near the parking brake pedal, but a quick look there reveals nothing. Do you have to remove covers?

It's on the right hand side of the steering column, down under the dash - I need a torch to find it - eyes not what they used to be. No cover, looks like this

Re: OBDII wifi dongle and Ipad app

Thanks FB. I found it.
I bought a bluetooth ELM327 and I'm trying to link it up with a Samsung S3 without much success.
I did manage to pair the two, but then they wouldn't connect, so I unpaired them and now can't get them to play with each other again. (I have made my phone visible).
Does it sound as though I may have bought an incompatible unit, or a faulty one?

Re: OBDII wifi dongle and Ipad app

Blackadder, what software "App" are you using? Best to use that to pair your device.
