    I’m looking to monitor my trucks possible misfires/knocks since I’m paranoid and just got the OVTUNE. I’m also wanting to monitor tranny temps and the like for towing in the future. Which is the app/obd plug you would recommend? Is OBD fusion an app I can do all that on? Thanks for the feedback.

    OBD Fusion is great for that stuff, get a cheap connector like the Carista LE and OBD Fusion

    The kitbest is bluetooth and OBD Fusion is from the google play store but I've believe there are other apps/scanners for IOS.
