Default OBD2 and Smartphone Apps. Are there any good ones for boost & A/F??

I have a 2012 WRX. I'd like a smartphone app that uses the OBD2 to send a WIFI or Bluetooth signal to my phone. Mostly to get decent boost and A/F readings. Datalogging a plus....

Anything out there that can do this??

For my birthday my dad got me this:
http://www.innova.com/en-US/Product/...e-2e0fa6e7fcd3

Haven't used it yet but I got the app on ipad and the layout looks pretty nice. Will be trying it next week and can let you know.

I use an iOS app called OBD Fusion coupled with this
 OBD2 reader OBD2 reader

I use it mostly for reading/clearing codes on my truck, but it has a nice dashboard function that shows boost, MAF, etc. It has data logging as well.

I'm not sure how accurate/laggy the boost gauge is. I have a '15 WRX which has the built in boost gauge, I'll run the app on the way home this evening and see how close the boost gauges match.

Let us know, the OBD Fusion seems to be the only decent one available for the iPhone...

I messed around with it last night in the WRX. It is a really well designed and powerful app, I have really only scratched the surface of what it is capable of. You basically get all the monitoring and logging function that you would with an Accessport, and in my opinion, the UI on OBD Fusion is much better.

Here are some screenshots of the dashboard monitor functions. The gauges are completely customizable; you can change the item being monitored, size/location of the gauge, radial or digital, colors, etc.

I placed a pre-order on the
OBDLink MX WiFi today. Once that arrives I'll get the Fusion App.

I have this one. When it works it is pretty freaking cool.
However. connection issues can drive you nuts and I feel their support is subpar. Palmer blames PLX. PLX blames palmer. May be the wifi version.
I would investigate Bluetooth and wifi before making the plunge. Large investment.
Just wish Cobb would make an app like Hondata. That app is the bomb!!!

Use Bluetooth Low Energy Link for iPhone, it does auto configure, auto connect.

If you think this is something you'd use a lot, just get a Nexus 7 used and Torque Pro.

You'll never get a wideband reading when the car doesn't have a wideband sensor. Unless the have redone the sensors, the front one was good for cruising afrs but never that accurate for WOT conditions. If it was, no one would put wideband gauges in their subaru

Having said that, I used torque and like it, but it looks like others have data logging, which would be huge. do a data log and email to tuner with no computer required.

It's to bad Cobb hasn't released an accessport app to sync your accessport to your smart phone via Bluetooth. Sure would make emailing logs and updating maps to other accessport MUCH easier.

Just got my OBD Link MX with WiFi today. Anyone know which output to use to read the Air/Fuel Ratio?

Also, what is a good mount to hold the IPhone in place while driving? Either something that goes by the OEM gauges or up by the clock. A temporary type mount...
