    Hello,

    I've seen lately a lot of good OBD applicactions and diagnostics using an OBD bluetooth dongle, but not sure if some one in this forum has ever tried before, I'm kind of curious to try the "Torque" application for my Moto Defy Droid... pls send any information you like to share.

    I bought the Scantool OBDLink and Torque. It's amazing. It updates ridiculously fast on my 2010. The logging is very nice. The program will drain your phone battery like no ones business, since it is pulling GPS data and doing a lot of processor intensive stuff.

    If only I knew what I was looking at stats-wise.

    I also have torque and an Ebay dongle. I love it, it's like a super cheap scanguage that does more stuff. Granted the extra stuff is kinda pointless, but it makes me feel smarter and more in tune with the engine watching numbers like timing advance and O2 sensor volts... I have no idea why anyone would ever want to know that but damnit it's cool.
