ive been using the torque app for android, does way more than that for the same price. $5 for the app and 20-25 for the obdII to bluetooth adapter.

I got that autel scanner last year for 25 dollars, it works but it feels cheapie in the hands, if you care to know. I'm gonna look into that blue tooth thing-a-ma-bob though, JWFirebird

they dont make torque for BB. but doing a quick search there is a app that just reads codes. there is a different app Dynostorm that reads HP, 1/4 mi and all the other cool stuff torque does.

i got the cheapy deal from ebay, its turning to be a little slow the more i use it. so if thats important you may want to get a better one. it seems like its faster the closer i hold the phone to the adapter. im thinking about getting a mount that will be closer to it see how that works out.
