I have this one. Works great on Fords and VWs with the Torque app:

Not that one specifically, sorry. More details of my setup and the BT adapter I'm using:

Thanks guys I think next time I put a Amazon order together I will order one.

One more question, how well does it work reading and clearing codes.

I haven't had to clear any on mine, but I did clear codes on my wife's Saturn Outlook without any problems.

Maybe we should ask the diesel crowd??

The only code I've had is the fuel cap and that was caused by my aux tank.

I have a few of the BT OBDII interfaces (just not that specific one, sorry) and they work fine. The apps clear the code as well.

I also recommend the app ForScan that has some Ford specific code capabilities, but I believe it is a Windows App only.

I got my scanner and downloaded the Torque Pro app, I'm starting to figure it out. Has anyone else used the ethanol% display, I'm getting a 18% reading using 10% fuel, I don't believe it's right.
