OBD2 reader?

Post by joelzy » Thu Mar 22, 2018 10:07 am

Anyone with a swap try running an OBD2 scanner/reader for live engine data?
The scanner i currently have is super basic and only reads my ej when not running with the key on for some reason. My other cars it will give you live data anytime.
Looking at updated readers and sure enough they can bluetooth to your phone with live data and all which would be nice as the only gauge i currently have tied into the swap is temperature.

anyway, curious if anyone is running them and if so what reader/scanner?
I'll probably try one out soon as it would be very helpful

TIA

I have a Cobb Accessport V3. Pricey but it holds/ loads all my tunes and has some other useful functions. And gauges of course.

good to know! is that OBD2 only or do you have to connect in other places as well? Reason I ask is that an acquaintance offered to help me with access port if i had the OBD2 and flash mode connectors intact and i only have OBD2. Not even sure if a 96 had flash mode

I use a basic wifi sender and the "dash command" app. I'm fairly happy with both, but occasionally it has trouble connecting. Note that Apple doesn't do Bluetooth connections, so make sure your sender is wifi if you're using Apple
