Bluetooth all the info to your phone or tablet using the app (there's a free version or a pro version for £2.95). There's the basic information on faults and clearing warning lights to the full blown petrol head data. If using a tablet you should be able to avoid the mobile phone fine/points whilst driving and not looking at the road and as a added bonus it could measure the G force of any crash you have!

*cheaper version are available on ebay from China but may not work with the app.

I bought this exact one for my Range Rover P38 and it worked a treat, recognised my o2 sensor was dodgy .

You get what you pay for with these devices, cheaper ones are always on so if you leave them plugged in can drain your battery.
They can cause issues with the cars ECU and its not unknown for cheap knock offs to cause expensive damage so imo it's worth paying a bit and getting a decent device like the obdlink mx.

why would you leave it plugged in and surely it is only taking the data and sending it to your phone via bluetooth?

​Live data monotoring. Boost pressure, rpm, speed, sensor stats, etc. Mine stays plugged in. Torque pro is a great app.

Just remember that this will not work with iPhones, only Android, for iPhones you need one that works on WiFi. Some phone/car combinations can be fussy about the version (V1.5 & V2.1) of the unit too so might be worth a rake around any forums to find if others are using them and if so what version.

It's also worth mentioning that anyone with a Ford, except the MK5 Mondeo. Should buy a USB 500k switched OBD2 reader.
Using Focccus, Elmconfig and Forscan can give much more use.
They let you set up auto locking doors, change recorded wheel/tyre sizes, disable tyre pressure sensors when fitting winter wheels, etc.

Hubby says it's no good at all for him, totally useless and won't give him any data of any use at all on his Land Rover and would be a total waste of money.

Mind you it is older than I am.

Well either he is a cradle snatcher or has a classic Land Rover. If it's the later then it's probably lucky to have doors, never mind electronics.

Plenty of these around, some cheaper too. They are mostly based/copies of the ELM 327 but work well.

This one is a bit naughty though as it seems to be an adaptor like the others but is using the Torque Pro name to boost sales. They do not seem to be affiliated with them in any way.

and all above readings is being used for..?

Yes, in most cases - to justify that a fiver (not even to mention this ridiculously priced @£14 piece of ### labeled up as..) you spent isn't wasted) - well, i've managed to communicate with my car engine ecu and yes, it works great )
wbat about an accuracy of all above "data" received?
anyone want to try it on peugeot/renault cars to see even more cool "data"??
and yes, possibility of ecu's malfunctioning (

P.s get a decent brand interface if really that needed

If left plugged in, an unswitched one may drain your battery while the car is not being used.

There is a major issue with these things being copied and 'passed off'.
Inferior ones aren't particularly likely to damage the car - though user-fiddling with unknown/undocumented settings (what does this do?) just might.
One hassle with the worse clones is that they are slow doing the readings, which limits how much data can be handled on each round of 'polling'. This seems to confuse/limit or even offend some apps. (Carista just says a flat 'no' to my bluetooth dongle which mostly works with Torque.)
It is good to be able to occasionally check particular technical details (temperatures particularly), but I found non-OBD2 means of dealing with the two specific settings that I was looking for access to.

If you NEED one, you possibly need a pukka branded OBD reader. If you want to be amazed at what your car is measuring and not displaying on the dashboard, get a cheap clone (and be prepared for it not to work perfectly). In between (like this one), be very very careful to be satisfied that you are actually getting something better than an eBay from-China potluck clone.
