Good OBD II App

I have seen several people talk about using OBD II apps on their Iphones or Android phones. What is the best app to download? Do they work through Blue Tooth?

Re: Good OBD II App

with iPhones you need a Wi-Fi OBD connection, since for most Apps the BlueTooth will not work. Dash Boss allows you to use BlueTooth, costs around $180 for the unit.

Re: Good OBD II App

Torque and a Bluetooth ODBII adapter will cost 30 bucks or less. You can buy an Android phone with the savings.

Re: Good OBD II App

The Go Point BT1A is bluetooth and works with BOTH Android and iOS.
$150
The iOS only Bluetooth one is $120.

BT1A for Android and Apple - GoPoint Technology

Dash Command is currently free in the Google Play store.
Not sure if this is permeant now, but it used to be $50 apparently. - https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...ce.DashCommand

"NOTE: The free version of DashCommand is evaluation mode only. Full functionality requires an in-app purchase through Google Play."

Ugh. I hate in-app purchases.

Re: Good OBD II App

Thanks, I am not familiar with the Play store, and this part "Offers in-app purchases" wouldn't expand.

It's sort of a bait and switch. They don't have to say in the Play store what all the in-app purchases are. All they have to say is that in-app purchases are a possibility. My guess is that you download it, install it, and then they spring the "Only $50 to activate DashCommand! Click here!" card on you.

...but then again, I don't know because I didn't download it. I *really* hate in-app purchases. Haha.

Re: Good OBD II App

I set it to download it to the misses phone, but it's off at the moment. I will check it in the morning (2am here) when we're up and see what it says.

Go Point say the Android app is included when you buy their device.
