    I'm getting a wifi OBDII reader to use with my iPhone/iPad.
    Does anyone have any experience with an iPhone/iPad app to use. I plan on using Rev but I thought I would check and see if there was something better out there.
    Thanks

    Not sure about wifi and apple but I use a bluetooth one with my Android that I'm pretty sure supports apple as well.

    I believe Apple has to use wifi. I purchased a ELM327 unit for $30. it should arrive today.
    What App are you using? I'm just trying to find the best one before I spend 40 bucks on Rev.
    Thanks

    I am pretty sure that it correct that iPhones will only work via WiFi.

    I have the PLX Kiwi bluetooth unit that I use with my phone. They also make a WiFi one as well. Their units are a bit more expensive than many of the others but I know that some of the others can be a bit erratic so I figured that since the Kiwi is still cheaper than a decent OBDII reader that it made sense to get the good unit. I have now had it for over a year and find it to be a fantastic device which was well worth the money spent.

    Here's a link to the WiFi version.

    Oh wait! You were asking about an app. not the device. Since I am on Android I guess I cannot be much help because I use Torque and that app is not available on iOS.
