Edge Insight CTS

I've been looking for something similar to a scan gauge and I came across the edge insight CTS. It plugs straight into your obd port. Has anyone had experience with products like this? I'm looking for the digital speedo mainly. Also, the edge has a 1/4 mile time feature and 0-60. Just some fun stuff to pay with

I'll stick to using Torque on my Android phone w/ELM327 adapter. Total cost - $25.

The Insight looks like a really nice semi-permanent solution, if that's what you're looking for. For my uses, Torque works well, and also has the 0-60 and 1/4 mile features that you mention.

Same here. Too bad the port door doesn't close when it's plugged in. Dash Command works well too. https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...result#?t=W10.

There are ways around that. Mine stays plugged in with an OBD2 extension cord, and I'm able to close the door. The male end of the extension cord has a right-angle, low-profile plug. Once the port is un-clipped from its hole in the dash, it all fits in there just fine.

I would imagine that just about any portable bluetooth device can interface with an ELM237 adapter. They make the adapters low-profile now too, so i don't think the extension cord I listed above would be a requirement. Googling "ipad ELM327" appears to show results for using the two together. DashCommand is one app that is mentioned.
