Bluetooth OBD2 for Codes and such
 
I am looking at getting a Bluetooth OBD 2 to look at codes and such useing my android phablet . I have the software , but i want to make sure a) its OBD2 and b) version 1.4 or 1.5 or so on.

Any insight?

The only ones they make are obd2, and the unit number should be ELM327, mine's manufacturer is BAFX. I got mine from Amazon, it was the one with like 200 reviews. Are you using Torque?

Right on man, so far its one of my favorite car related purchases. I was one of the fortunate people that got the dash without the tach... in a manual transmission. I put Torque on my phone and now I use my phone as a dash mounted tach! Brilliant!

Yea , i have a Tach but i would like to be able to monitor the sensors , and make sure its still running good. been having a few issues as of late. :P

Hello!

Did your ELM327 work on your focus? I bought one similar for my euro focus and it didn't work!

It did work on mine, actually... are you using an Android or Apple phone? If you're using an Android phone, check out the app Torque

I use an android phone. Well it wasn't the phones fault as I found out but it was the adaptors fault.
