    Which OBD2 BT to buy?

    Just bought a Parrot AS head unit and want to add torque to it after I root it.

    Which scanner works with the V1? Most on ebay seem to be priced at < $20

    Also, has anyone added a head unit and integrated the stock GPS antennae? Less concerned with BT handsfree/mic (i rarely if ever take calls while driving) but id rather have zero wires protruding anywhere and keep a clean/stockish look.

    Just get the cheap Chinese one on eBay. I have had it for about 2 years with no issues. Its got a blue and orange sticker on it and says ELM 327 interface on it. it was just under $20 at the time. I use torque on my Galaxy Nexus with it.

    And how long did it take to ship? I've heard of issues with the Chinese ones and long shipping delays...

    I don't believe so. There is a different app. I'm just not sure what it is...

    I didn't see Torque although I did see a couple/few others. Seems like they'll do the job though. I think I might have to do this too. Pretty cheap and easy way to know a little better what's going on.

    Agreed. They can read anything your ecu reads. At least torque can.

    Taking video with your phone and overlaying it with gauges is my favorite...
