Android Tablet and OBDII

Ok fella's, I'm exhasuted from searching and still have not found my answer. I have an Android tablet and have downloaded the free versions of Dash Command and Torch Pro. Looking to Buy a wifi OBDII device of Amazon. Both apps give a lot of information,,,,, useless to me to know 1/4 mile in a 3/4 ton truck, what I don't see in either app is EGT temps. Is there a compatible wireless obdii device and android app that will give me that temperature without having to drill and tap my block to install a hard wired sensor?

Rather than use my tablet, I bought a Scangauge II. For 150 bucks, by using the x gauge codes you an program it to monitor most of the EGT sensors. It was the least expensive way to do it without spending 1500 bucks. I tried the blue tooth dongle in the OBD II port and using apps. Just was not satisfied.

I bought this ODBII BT adapter and it is working fine with my tablet and Torque Pro.

I should note that I bought the same adapter 3 years ago and it didn't work properly. The Torque Pro developer says the ELM327 adapters can be flakey. Not sure if I got a bad one or my phone was the culprit.
