Vivid Linq + Torque reviews/thoughts

Does anyone have a Vivid Linq with their WJ Jeep that can share their experience? I have a couple questions that I haven't been able to find anywhere else.

1. Has anyone tried/used the Vivid Linq as a Bluetooth adapter for 3rd party apps like Torque?
2. Have the issues with the android app you read about online been worked out?
3. Any features that are "suggested" to exist on their site that you haven't been able to get to work?
3. Would you buy it again, or just go with the standard FlashPaq? and get a separate OBD II Bluetooth adapter to use with Torque?

I'm interested in the superchips tune and using programs like Torque, so if Vivid Linq also works as a Bluetooth adapter that I can use with Torque that would save me a little time and money. Interested in everyone's thought/experience.

Vivid comes in on the 27th paid $600 from summit racing. Claims 26rwhp and dramatic shift changes we will see

Judging from what I've seen with Actron and their U Scan I would say probably no.These bigger companies like to use their own protocols instead of the ELM327 standard that most OBD Bluetooth dongles run on and also Torque. So if Superchips follows suit and I bet they did,Torque won't work.They do it on purpose to keep you from using their hardware with somebody else's app.Who knows though.maybe you'll get lucky.

Hey just got it and have been doing some testing. Makes the car rip. Never expected performance like this out of a superchips product. The torque and power numbers that they claim are realistic. Videos coming soon
