    OBD2 / iPhone 4 / Bluetooth / ELM327 ????

    Hello,
    I need an OBD2 reader (bluetooth) for my 05´STS and
    I´ve found an ELM327 with bluetooth on eBay...

    My ELM327 without runs great with the STS
    what is with the bluetooth version and my iPhone 4 ?

    What is the best app for these unit ?

    Thanks
    Frank

    I use the the PLXDevices.com kiwi wifi module with my STS. For the iPhone I'm using REV iPhone app from DevToaster. However, I don't see any sign that REV or any of the other OBD iPhone apps support bluetooth, they just support wifi.

    Hello,

    can I use the wifi version only with my iPhone at any place or must I install the OBD scanner at my network computer ?

    You can use either a phone based app or a laptop. These devices are aimed at showing you live data. REV can save a data set and email it so you could review in on a regular computer with more advanced OBD software.

    More details here -> http://www.devtoaster.com/products/rev/

    I use the Android app called Torque with a blue tooth Chinese ELM327. It's amusing. Also can view live data from a laptop, but haven't found a good application for Windows.
