Threw this in here so it can be pointed at after seeing jfoj having to copy/paste it into so many posts.
Hey Bali,You'll need a wireless OBD adapter. The bluetooth LE one is by far the best.
That’s a good question. I recall the BTLE seems faster, but I haven’t done any A-B tests to confirm that.For an Android phone, is there a benefit to having Bluetooth LE versus the regular Bluetooth obd2 adapter?
No. Not on Torque Pro either. I have an iCarsoft i910 hand held multi system BMW scanner that gives you dynamic coolant and oil temps. Relatively inexpensive.I'm sure my M54B30 engine has an oil temp sensor (on OFH near low pressure sensor) but so far not found an app that displays it. Does OBD Fusion?
Yes, you need their adapter for E39, E46, E53, and other old generation BMWs.Will Carly only work if you buy their £60 adaptor?
Carly, like BMW Scanner and INPA, is BMW-specific software.Does Carly have many other important advantages over Fusion, Torque, others?
PA Soft is the company and BMW Scanner is the software/cable product they produced and sold. People get those names confused all the time. Get the cable and software here.Looking into PASoft, etc., but that may be outside the purview of this thread. From what I'm gathering, I may need to get an adapter more specific to the e46 to maximize utility? Still need to do some reading on the differences between PASoft vs BMW Scanner
Post #1 tells you what you need, either WiFi or BT LE if your iPhone supports it. I think iPhone 4S introduced BT 4.0 which includes LE, but you should double check.I miss Jailbreak on my Iphone, with that i was able to run Dashcommand, torque and all other apps with a china BT dongle and 0 problems..
now i transferred averything on Android tablet as Obd fusion can't be used on Iphone (with that dongle)
can you advise me on a 100% functional dongle for IOS use?
