    so I ordered a BAFX Products® - Bluetooth OBD2 scan tool off of Amazon. I've read several reviews and it seems it's a toss up between TouchScan and Torque Pro.

    Do ya'll favor one over the other or have a better alternative? They both are about $5 each but, it seems Torque Pro has more plug ins like a video recorder app so you can view your performance after you're done driving as opposed to monitor it while driving.

    Thanks :cheers:

    Jim :)

    From all the reading I have done it seems Torque Pro is the most liked. Since I have an iPhone I got BlueDriver for Christmas. Need to hook it up and see how it works. It got good reviews for the :apple: crowd.

    Thanks gents. :cheers:

    I was leaning that way. I want to say in the reviews of the blue tooth gadget someone said even though the companies aren't related, BAFX Products suggests Torque Pro in a hand out that comes with the gadget.

    I did read some reviews that said TouchScan was easier/better for them. I can always download it if Torque Pro doesn't feel like a good fit. Cheaper then buying a full scanner for what I need.

    Even though Torque Pro's screen can be easily seen on my smart phone I bought a cheap RCA 7'' tablet to use and is a lot easier to monitor the readouts.Just a suggestion.

    I have the older Samsung 10.1 Tablet but, thanks for the suggestion. That might be a good idea to keep something in the truck more "permanent". :cheers:

    Looking like between $35 and $45 at wally world. :thumbs:
