    Does anyone use smart phone apps that connect to a Bluetooth OBD2 device?

    I've been tempted, but I'm tired of trying scan tools that do not properly talk to one car or another. It started with TII FWD Mopars not communicating. Now I've got the 2004 BMW 330Ci convertible and my scan tool will read codes, but won't clear them. Also won't reset the service interval. I'd love to find one that did all that I need it to do...

      I have been using the Torque app for years. Works great.

        X2 on Torque. I bought the $4.99 "Pro" version and I paid $7.99 for a ELM327 Bluetooth dongle from Amazon. It works great except for the fact that they don't give you the pairing key (use 1234) so your phone will pair with the dongle.

          I got a wifi dongle off of Ebay. Going to give it a test today. Instructions recommended using Dashcommand with iphone. Looks promising.

          My car is a 72 Dart. Probably 15 years before OBD2 came out. So no I don't.
