its pretty cool watching everything work, and you can also data log with "Torque", record 0 - 100 kph, 0 - 60 mph, 1/8 mile, 1/4 mile times too.


Which dongle did you get? The ELM327 one? Might be a cheap fix for me, but also not sure if it'll work with the 3.0R as only the '05 GT is listed as compatible.


Yep, thats the one :D works with my H6.
it lets me scan for CEL codes, but i cant clear them (if/when they pop up)

iPowne here... seen a few, just wondering if they'd be crap and you'd be better off getting a crappy netbook and tactrix cable. A well designed app for the iPad would be killer.

I believe you have some connectors in the kick panel t the accel pedal which you connect and the CEL will flash to give you the code.. There is a good deeper explantion of this on Ozfoz.

The obd2 devices we use aren't compatible with pre 01 models IIRC

Do you still have the driver disk that came with it?
I'd like to try mine with my laptop, but the CD that came with it was unreadable, and the vendor claimed to have emailed me the files 4 times, and they never came. :(
