Re: OBDII wifi dongle and Ipad app

Some software may not have the PID to read all the functions of the Jeep.
Each car runs a "generic" PID set, that will show you standard items, but require the correct PID for the specific functions to be displayed.
Sometimes these PIDs can be downloaded from the software vendor and sometimes they are only available to dealers or mechanics.

The GC CRD has an EGT sensor built in and its reading is visible via ODBII using the Torque App on an Android device with an ELM327 Bluetooth adapter plugged in the diagnostic port. I have no idea if its pre or post turbo but it changes rapidly. I have seen 1200 F at wide open throttle and 8th gear at 70 mph on flat ground runs 650 to 720 F. During DPF Regen the Cat Temp (also visible) and EGT went to 1200 F for several minutes.

Anyone towing should invest in a Torque App setup. I have $30 total invested.
Just for clarification, and to avoid any confusion, it wasn't me who posted that...
I don't use anything Android. I don't even own anything Android.
My setup is an ELM WiFi dongle and the "Dash Command" app on my iPad.

Sorry about the misquote.

That's great news, my Elm is a Wi-Fi dongle which I have been trying with Android apps, I have just recently download Dashcommand to try with my Ipad - sounds like it will work (as long as the MY13 JGCs have the EGT presented on the interface) I am hoping that very high EGT & Cat temps will be an indicator of a regen in progress - my JGC does not seem to have any display , just a red light after limp mode starts

Re: OBDII wifi dongle and Ipad app

Hi all,
So to have the information from the OBD2 downloaded, the best way is to use WIFI?
I have an android tablet already.
So please correct me if I am wrong, I just purchase a wifi OBD2 dongle, pair the dongle and the tablet together and have an app or programme on the tablet and use this to display the information.
Thanks
JohnW

Re: OBDII wifi dongle and Ipad app

Wifi is really only needed for iPads as they do not support Bluetooth access to the readers. If you have a Droid tablet, you can just get the ELK Bt reader and it will work fine.
My Bt ELK works on my Galaxy Tab, Windows PC and Windows mobile

Don't you mean ELM?

You want a ELM327, preferably Version 2.1.
In general Bluetooth for Android, WiFi for iOS.

Re: OBDII wifi dongle and Ipad app

Thanks Snuke and all the other inputs.
I purchased the ELM327 2.1 and Torque pro.
Loaded the torque pro and away it went.
Please so far changed a few of the inputs and all seams to be working.
Thanks again to every one.
