    Default Bluetooth OBD2 dongle and software?

    I think I'd like to play with this. The Torque application seems to be pretty popular. Anyone try pairing one of the cheap Bluetooth OBD2 scanner dongles off Amazon with their Maxx and have an experience to tell me about?

    Amazon prime got mine for 21 bucks with free 2 day shipping. Works great, and torque is super easy to use. There are more expensive readers that connect via wifi, but I am fine with the one I got. FYI, Super chips does have a software for tuning....

    So did I. Plugged it in and installed Torque. Torque is sort of not real intuitive - OK, it kinda sucks. It's painful to set up. But once you do it works well and it shows me everything that's going on with my Mazda 6. Very cool.

    I use one of the eBay dongles. Works great with Torque.
    Torque although not intuitive is very useful.
    Reads and resets codes and give real time information on all readable sensors.

    I've used the read/reset function on BMW e36 M3, 335i, Mazda 3, Mazda 6, Dodge Grand Caravan, Dodge Magnum, Chrysler pacifica and Porsche Boxter.

    I'm a tech at an independent shop that works on all makes, all models. That being said torque works great when I need to check codes and readiness monitors quickly. I use the elm327 adapter and it works flawlessly. You should see the looks on customers faces when I tell them what's wrong with their cars using my phone haha. You can even email ecu reports.
