I bought mine about 6 years ago off Amazon. It's the XITech ZHOL ELM327 Bluetooth OBDII OBD2 Diagnostic Scanner. But I just looked and it's no longer available. (not surprised 6 years down the road) But it's still working fine.

That said it looks like the BAFX 34t5 Bluetooth is a good one and works fine with Torque based on several comments there.

Edit - It also allows you to log the data from the various sensors to come back and reference. I've posted a few of those graphs on here from dyno runs and stuff. They came from Torque Pro.

Nice thanks for the details. How accurate would you say the 0-60 and 1/4 mi times are?

I haven't tested them with Torque because I either get them from the track slips or using the Gopro looking at the gauges and review that. I think you need GPS enabled on the tablet for that function, and my tablet doesn't have GPS. I just needed Bluetooth. I got it last year on a Black Friday sale for 59.00.

Torque pro is an app that basically uses a BT OBD dongle to get readout from DME. Clear codes, logging is available as well I believe. 1/4 mile, 0-60 all GPS so it should be fairly accurate. For $5.00 and a dongle on amazing for $20 go for it.

I need to figure out which dongle is good and I'll pull the trigger.
Dont go for the cheap dongles if you want a good refresh rate on multiple sensors.

I bought one of those 15USD ones and the speed is not good. Now I have a OBDlink LX which is great. Look at the PID/sec speed.

Went with this one after reading all the reviews. It's usually 1-3 on everyone's best list. Only bad thing is it's not iOS compatible but oh well I have the cheap Samsung galaxie.

Well since Torque Pro isn't written to iOS either, no worries. When I bought my bluetooth adapter 6 years ago the more inexpensive ones were 39.99. Good to see they've become more common and a decent one is 21.99 now.

That Samsung tablet deal from Best Buy was one of the best ones for Black Friday that I saw looking around.

Lol it sucks! but its so much fun! and I cant remember all the differences, but I think HDR is one, and for sure 4k output, which is cool because I watch a lot of Netflix on my xbox, and most of(if not all) of Netflix's original content (Jessica Jones, Dare Devil, Iron Fist, The Punisher, Luke Cage etc etc) is also in 4k.

+1 harkes dont go for the cheap dongles
I also noticed this with some friends getting random reading

I got OBDLINK LX 2yrs ago and it was very accurate. But these other cheaper dongles the more stuff you start logging the slower it is. Thats why if you guys have Bootmod3 defeats the purpose of buying a dongle thats inferior

So sounds like manly 4K output which my tv is still 1080p so I guess going with just the regular non S I did ok. It'll sit around 99% of the time anyway I don't even know why I bought it lol I think original COD remastered has been an all time fun classic

Doesn't defeat the purpose for me personally since I have 3 cars so reading OBD on the 2 cars not running bm3 will be a snap. Plus family friends come over you know the drill

This is just an update to the agent.jar file on the card, not the full re-image that we did. You just FTP the file over to the device. For those using a laptop they just grab the new agent.jar from the zip file and replace the old one. Instructions for the update are up on dropbox just FYI.
