I chose the Bluetooth route cause technically, the only way to use the iPhone as an OBDII scanner is to buy the WiFi obdii scanners.... but then you lose network connectivity during using it... So I said screw Apple and jailbroke my phone. Apple won't let you connect to a Bluetooth device if it is not associate with Apple where as the Android has no problems at all... Then I downloaded roqyBT4 (like $5) off Cydia. After that, Downloaded Rev2 ($40) off the Apple store. There are only a few OBDII apps that you can use because the app has to have a custom connectivity setting where you can define an IP and port. Rev2 had a free trial so I used that first to make sure I could connect to the Chinese Bluetooth obdii scanner. Was kinda leery cause the trial doesn't have anything that you can watch from the car at all but it does show if you connect or not.

In the end I got a an OBDII scanner for under $65.

Very cool. Didn't realize this was possible given Apple's tight lock down of iOS. And here I am considering leaving Android.

I considered one of these, but then I would lose my bluetooth connection to HandsFreeLink right?

Thanks for the info! I have a jailbroken iPhone and I'll be giving this a try. Definitely cheaper than getting a ScanGauge or something along those lines.

Done: Aftermarket head unit
Eventually: New speakers all around

The setup isn't permanent with the cheapy chinese one though. It sticks out from under the dash. I'll take a pic. PLX has one though for the Android (will work after you do what I just did to my iPhone). and will mount more descreetly.

I'd like to see a picture of this. As long as it doesn't stick out too much it wouldn't bother me. I don't spend a lot of time looking down by my feet anyway.

It would be prone to you kicking it accidentally though. I'll see if I can find time to snap a pic of it sticking out.

i played with an ELMS bluetooth OBDII unit until realizing it was a no-go on a non-jailbroken iphone... they do protrude into the door path a little bit and definitely are prone to contact from knees and shins... there are near-flush mounting, right angle OBDII extension cables that would fit the bill perfectly, with the OBDII device stowed under the steering column plastic easily.

$12.95
