    I am really interested in getting data from my car & van into the torque ODB android programme & hopefully some fault data on my disco's Fuel burning heater which has packed up!:Doh:

    Any body using a wifi version of the OBD Data plugs ? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ELM327-Wi...iagnostic_Tools_Equipment&hash=item2ec9a07715

    I would prefer to get a reasonable quality one and prefer wifi as I want to use my phone and lappy , I have not researched but assumed there is windows versions of torque or similar. anybody using one ? :thumb:

    TIA

    be aware, it will only give engine codes and realtime read-outs may be limited.
    transmission and chassis codes (ABS, traction control etc) cannot be read with this reader and it wont delete 'service engine' lights.

    Yes I realise its limited, but thanks for pointing that out :thumb: I am just dabbling with all the coding stuff at the moment, and As it happens there is a diagnostic tool for the Torque programme that diagnoses the D3's FBH on android :Smile:. I think the current best value device to do all that reset stuff on a D3 is a Faultmate. But I would also like something that covers my Peugeot Boxer codes as well, but havent got too far of looking at generic equipment. :RollEyes:

    Bluetooth is a simpler system to set-up / use. If your laptop doesn't have Bluetooth a very cheap USB Bluetooth dongle will provide the facility. I have the Bluetooth version & it works extremely well. There's lots of software around if you search - the device is simply an interface so you have a choice of software.

    i have the bluetooth version and can reset the fault codes and lights as well as read codes and realtime values of various sensors.
