I wanted to get some advice from you. I have in my possession a HTC desire smart phone, which surprising has a few apps that can read diagnostics, etc. The requirment for the phone to be able to read codes is that you need an OBD II compliant bluetooth dongle. So a few questions,
i. I have a 52 reg 318i SE, is this OBD II compliant ? DO I need to be careful about the number of pins or something.
ii. What do you think of the following device ? I dont need anything expensive, just a hobby at this stage to read my codes ? Will this be ok for my car ?
iii. Any potential pitfalls e.g. can you fry the ECU, dont want to mess things up.
appreciate the advice
