Default superchips vivid.

hey guys. i was watching powerblock and heard about this. basically it uses a android running tablet sold by superchips, and a bluetooth enabled obd2 dongle. now on the android market they have the vivid app. but i can find nowhere on the internet to pick up just the dongle. all i can find is the $650 tablet/dongle combo. any info on this?

i thought it might be a cheap way to ditch my speedlimiter. but me and the gf both have android phones (htc evo 4g and samsung galaxy smart) and shes got a streak 7 by dell. so no need for a 4th android device.

thanks alot! and to you guys with professional programmers.... think its worth the money for pre made tunes? lol. i know i wouldnt be paying 650 for it.

I don't know anything about that app. I use torque on my android. Go on Ebay and type in kiwi bluetooth obd2 and it should bring up the adapter I use. It'* about $100 but works well. I tried the cheap made in china adapters. Don't waste your money, trust me.
