    I am towing more and would like to monitor transmission temp- what bluetooth scanner should I get for the Torque app? And guessing the ODBII scanner just sits in the scan port?

    That one is wifi - not bluetooth. As I recall, you want to run the wifi with an iphone running torque pro but you can use bluetooth if you are using an android device. I am running this bluetooth cheapie OBDII dongle with a cheapie android tablet loaded with Torque Pro. I monitor both the pan and torque converter ATF temps while towing. Some "how to" discussions in this thread....

    This OBD2 I used worked with both Android and IoS - Its called Kuulaa brand.. - If you need to run on iphone this is the one I would get. Probably around $10-25 depending on where you get it. Search the interwebs and I am sure you will find it.

    Also it works great with Torque Pro
