Been playing with this for a couple weeks now.


Devtoaster makes an app for the iPhone and iTouch that reads your OBD2 port using a wireless adapter from PLX.

THE COST
38.99 for the REV APP
149.99 for the PLX
249.99 for the PLX with iMFD
199.00 for the iTouch

Some features of REV

* Vehicle Speed
* RPM
* Fuel Consumption
* Engine Coolant Temp
* Fuel Pressure
* Calculated Engine Load
* Throttle Position
* Intake Manifold Pressure
* Air Intake Temp
* Timing Advance
* Mass Air Flow
* Fuel Level
* Barometric Pressure
* EVAP System Vapor Pressure
* Fuel Trim
* Boost

Engine Code Retrieve and Reset

Want to know why your Check Engine light is on? Rev will tell you why!

* Engine code checking
* Listing of all engine codes thrown by the vehicle
* One-button reset of your codes and Check Engine light

First thing i did was upgrade my IPOD bracket to fit the iPhone or iTouch, this isn't required for using it but some of the features of the REV APP are useful while driving and I also pull music from my touch.







Here you can view the PLX adapter plugged into my OBD2 port, this can be stored away as its wireless, it also has a pig tail that allows you to connect 33 for sensors.


Now for the REV APP, green dot in the upper left tells me its connected to the PLX.


Just a few Metrics








Codes... ONE FOUND?


OH, Going to have to look into that.


Does Graphs also


Because its wireless I can walk some distance away with the touch and still retrieve this info. Super Convenient and COOL.

More APPS to Come and the PLX also works with your laptop - WIRELESSLY!

Isn't OBDII great for it's ability to give you a ton of info in real time.
I have a scan tool and laptop interfaces for all my vehicles.
Along with a wideband sensor I can plug in to any vehicle

Silly OBDI people just don't get it.
And before them those carb people didn't get that thar new fangled fuel injection. :toothless

How much was that? Its just like the Scan Gauge II...

Scanguage II can be inaccurate on some things. But its still a good little device to have...







I might have to look into this for my laptop, I saw the one for the Itouch, and if i didnt keep it in the glove compartment i'd probably get that... But laptop makes it much easier :thumbup

Thats cool. Pricey though. The ScanGauge II is $150.




many already have a iphone or ipod touch so really we are only talking 40bucks more for more! Graphics are much better on the touch as well. And I can do data logging via a laptop.

I agree with you on that, but I have neither of those toys and don't see myself getting them any time soon. Can it read trans temp? Also, do you know if Ford put an onboard trans temp sensor in the E40D?

It can cause you can add 33 more sensors, no ford didn't have a temp sensor on the transmission for the bronco. I plan to add one in mine plus an oil sensor.

Can these sensors be installed easily (plug and play)?
Did you have to update your ECM for these new sensors?
