Hadn't come across that one. Does it require programming or is it plug and play?I use a ScanGauge. It also runs as a gauge pod for my other car. It shows intake temperatures, water temperature, voltage, and boost pressure. I can disconnect it and check any of my vehicles in about 30 seconds.
I hadn't thought about that as an option. Are they reasonably priced? Can you recommend one? My main purpose is to know what's going on with my car (s) so I'd just assumed that a stand alone unit was all that was needed.if your not looking for a stand alone unit, why not use one that hooks up to a Laptop ?
Ha ha! Tell me about it!! But seriously, thanks for the info. It does warrant a look.(int' shipping is a b****).
I just had a look at the Auto Ingenuity site. You're right, it does seem like a very very capable system. Too much for my needs right now though.Auto Ingenuity makes a more capable system.
That's a good write up on that page of yours. I was thinking of purchasing Torque, but only after I try the OBDwiz software that comes with the scanner.For an Android tablet or smartphone, Torque and a Bluetooth adapter (ELM) from Amazon works for me.
I put together a web page of my findings.
This one of the many screens.
With a netbook or Windows Tablet, I like Torquescan.
Will do, but you'll have to bear with me while I figure it out. Newbies gotta start somewhere, sometime!nice, let us know what you think of the functionality when you get a chance
I was drawn to the bluetooth functionality and that it only draws power when the engine is running. This is my first scanner and only even thought of it to monitor my compressor clutch (which I think is acting funny, but the AC works fine) as well as the famed Pentastar ticking sound. Just want to be sure that it is the normal "tick" as opposed to the "misfire is coming" tick.Quite a gadget. I have had good luck with much less expensive equipment - Bluetooth dongle and a Bluetooth button for a PC can be had for under $25. Torque for Android was $4.95 the last time I looked. TouchScan for a PC is $40. Both are downloadable
All work well on my '12. I just leave the dongle in place and have not driven for a week before so no drain. Same dongle works with phone, tablet, and PC. I keep a second dongle in my netbook bag just in case.
Tablet and Bluetooth dongle make an ideal pair.
