USB, mini USB, and micro USB all use identical communications protocols, just different physical connectors. You just have to pay attention to host (port A) or device (port B). With regular USB it's very obvious, host (A) connectors are the big rectangular ones you have on your computer, device (B) connectors are the big square ones that you often see on printers and external hard drives. With mini and micro it's much less obvious, the connector and jack are just shaped slightly different. There are even on-the-go ports which can act as either host or device depending on what you plug into it (the phone's port is almost certainly one of these, it can act as a device when you plug it into a computer, or as a host when you plug a controller into it). You don't want to get the wrong adapter and accidentally plug two host ports into each other, for example, or they'll both be trying to power each other.

Can't do it with the torque app on android with the tatrix. I've tried on my AT100 which has a full USB... it detects the car but just can't log. Only way to log is to use a bluetooth obdII adapter.

Interesting. I used to be much more of a computer/electronics geek. Don't keep up anymore.

Excellent. That is good to know. Now I'll have to find out what OS I can run in my android phone (S3) that will be compatible with rom raider/ecu flash. Thanks for enlightening me

Maybe, but I have heard that Windows RT has the drivers locked down so only the OEMs can add them. EcuFlash needs its own driver, so if that's true then it's probably a showstopper.

I haven't heard that direct from Microsoft, but check this out...

I'm not sure where to find an authoritative source, but it looks like X86-based tablets like the Surface Pro might be the only viable option.

I have seen map switching also with the Bluetooth/Wifi PLX Kiwi.
