    Just been looking at this on ebay which seems to plug into the OBD and connect my Garmin satnav to the car diagnostics. Is it that simple and has anyone used anything similar? Is it accurate or just a waste of money?

    Looks expensive for a bluetooth OBD2 port. Note you'll either have to convert to switched power or plug it in for every journey. Not exactly safe when it's hanging by your feet when you are driving.

    Would be amusing for about an hour. I already know what my MPG is, and that hard driving makes it go down.
