Default iPhone 5 Automotive Interface for Car Lovers

The new Kiwi turns the iPhone 5 into a powerful automotive tool. Coupled with apps, Kiwi allows you to monitor your carís performance and diagnose any problem saving you time and money.

PLX Devices Inc. presents the new Kiwi 2 Wifi compatible with iPhone 5. The Kiwi 2 Wifi works with 1996 and later vehicles and installs in seconds. Connection is made through the vehicle's OBDII / CAN port located near or under the steering wheel. Interfacing with a vehicle's on board computer allows for monitoring fuel efficiency MPG, viewing real-time gauges, read/resetting engine check trouble codes and much more with many compatible apps for the iPhone 5. Itís a must have tool, saving any vehicle owner time and money. The new Kiwi 2 Wifi retails for just $119.99.

"If you love your car and your iPhone 5, the Kiwi 2 is an essential tool to have around." said Paul Lowchareonkul, PLX's CEO.

Kiwi 2 Wifi supports the tons of apps. These powerful apps enable analyzing engine check trouble codes, viewing real-time gauges, calculating fuel efficiency MPG, performing real-time dyno runs, logging data, creating and viewing GPS track mapping, monitoring road holding skid pad G's, video recording and data overlay for track days and also interface with aftermarket automotive sensors such as wideband AFR, boost, and much more.

The Kiwi 2 Wifi includes several improvements over the first generation Kiwi Wifi. It now comes with a sleek new design and is 0.25 inches thinner. The cable length has been reduced from 6 feet to 3 feet, making for a cleaner permanent installation. It is compatible with ISO 9141, VPW, PWM, KWP2000, and CAN protocols.

The Kiwi 2 Wifi incorporates a new advanced power saving circuit, designed to shut off power to essential functions of the unit allowing the Kiwi 2 Wifi to be permanently installed in a vehicle without draining the vehicle's battery. After 5 minutes of inactivity, the Kiwi 2 Wifi automatically enters a low power sleep mode. To turn the unit back on, a simple press of the soft button wakes the device back up.

The Kiwi 2 Wifi includes an 8 pin port on the back designed for the PLX iMFD Adapter. This allows a connection to high performance aftermarket sensors such as wideband air/fuel ratio, exhaust gas temperature, vacuum/boost, air intake temperature, fluid pressure and fluid temperature. This solution is desired for applications where vehicles do not support certain sensors and/or the car's computer does not report them. With the PLX iMFD Adapter attached, the best of both worlds of fully plug and play OBDII/CAN data as well as high performance aftermarket sensors can be obtained.

PLX Devices Inc. pioneered the Car to Smartphone revolution with the first generation Kiwi Wifi in 2010, winning a SEMA award for Best Mobile Electronics Accessory, Popular Mechanics Editors Choice Award and 11 global media awards. PLX is committed to excellence and innovation in the automotive aftermarket industry. A Silicon Valley California Company, PLX Devices Bringing the Future. Visit http://www.plxdevices.com

I had a droid, and the BT version of the kiwi. I was pretty bummed that it wouldn't pair with my iPhone. Questions:

What's the reason for this?
Is there a work around?
If not, is there a way I can trade my BT version in for a WiFi?

Thanks, fun product. I want to get back to using it!

So is an app with an attachment? Or does it do it do it strictly through wifi?

Works with the EXCELLENT track timing app for the iPhone called Harry's Lap Timer.

I recently used the lap timer app with a bluetooth GPS unit for timing at Willow Springs. This device would give the super cool ability to have to have RPM, throttle position and gear selection overlays on the track video.
