    Being an Apple guy, I checked into that one but the reviews were not as good as the BaFx which cost way less. I was given a free Android phone dedicated solely to monitor the gauges.

    Quoted from a different thread, question seems more relevant here...

    That's a nice display configuration you've set up, have you figured out how to keep your display from resetting each time you restart the app? I just purchased the BAFX unit, I guess I'll get the torque pro app so I can mess around with it.

    Thanks. You’ll enjoy it.

    I bought the $5 app which is what everyone on the reviews recco’d. Still haven’t figured out a saving mode other than unplugging the phone to turn it off and more importantly, unplugging the OBD to stop the Bluetooth Drain.

    I Downloaded the track recorder plug in today and drove to the carwash and gave it a try. I used the default layout, (already tweaked it) and took a few screen shots. This is totally cool as you can watch the entire trip after you are done. If you have the Torque Pro app and dont have this yet, get it.

    Cool stuff. Your Coolant at 195° looks about where mine stabilizes. Sometimes it will go to 200°. Bounces around in that zone.

    I discovered the HUD setting on the display last night picking up the kid from work. It reverses the display so you can put your device on the dash and see it all on the windshield. Probably no good during the day but it was cool driving with the info right there..

    Interesting. Does it use the camera on the phone?

    Yep. It's more like an enhanced dash cam with whatever gauges you want recorded. You need a good phone holder to keep it from bouncing around. It eats up memory fast, but you can delete trips to clear space or expand your memory.

    Screen shots of trip today..
