    Works perfect with Torque.

    Woops - thought that was the bluetooth module for the Torque app.

    I have a similar one.

    I’d say buy it, see if it meets your needs. If it doesn’t, you can ditch it here pretty easily.

    I don’t love mine but admittedly bought it mainly to pull codes. I used it twice and think I tossed it out, now have a legit, corded OBD2 scanner with O2 sensor testing.

    I have several of the Bluetooth ELM devices, bought a bunch off eBay wanted to see if the $100 ones worked better than the $5 ones. They don't! Any cheap ELM with the paid Torque, full version app, a little editing and plugins, is all you need for basic diag and monitoring.

    I even bought a blue driver, just to see. All it is, is PITA proprietary software. Doesn't even work with Torque app.

    Is fusion app for Android or iPhone?

    (Yah, that's what I was referring to, you will need to add some pids to get full functions to work, many threads about howto)

    I have this exact scanner and use it on my iphone running the EOBD Facile app. Best app for this scanner, if I remember correctly the app was $20.

    I have it and it does what I need. I have it cuz I found it in a rental car.
    Can't remember but the Apple dipshits made it so you can't use either wifi or Bluetooth with IPhone... unless you jailbreak, which I did with my old one and I'm using the Fusion app
