I have BT wireless to my android. Cost was $15 for the BT and $5 for the software. For whatever reason, oil temp/pressure are not available thru OBDII on our cars as far as I can tell. But a lot of things are.

What module are you using?
How did it turn out with your SSK?
I actually ordered two different random ones - they all look similar and come in similar packaging. They were cheep enough I ordered 2 in case one didn't work.

This is the one I have in the car now.

how far does that stick out of your OBD2 port?

The gauge is actually pretty cool. I would not give that kind of money on it again. I would watch on the forums and snatch it up from another seller.

I don't think just getting the gauge at 409 and putting it yourself in your AC vent is worth it. I really think it should be more around the 100-150 dollar range. It is just a reader.

However the throttle options is really cool. I keep it on that all the time. Keeps me more gas minded

Glad you solution is working out too. Definitely another way to go.

There was a seller on the forums that was selling that gauge with some extras for 375 shipped. That is much more reasonable. He was going to sell it to me but I got impatient and the rest is history.

But you are more than welcome. Pass on the word that it does work for our cars too if you want a bit of extra bling.
