I'd rather do this and use Torque on an Android Pad much like this installation:

You'll have to wait for the bootleg version on ebay.

Link Broken....

I agree it's pricey and I probably won't buy it just for that reason, but I like that it's in the dash and it's programmable (although you cannot test their program without the dongle)... no cords, boxes or pods to clutter up the dash and passenger area.

I've done the Megaview... Fun to build but slow to read and bulky to place and being hardwired really sucked.

Torque seems like a nice alternative, but it's yet another thing that my phone is being tasked to do and even if I use a dedicated phone... more cords and mounts to deal with in the cabin.

I really would like a dash like I can get with my Megasquirt and TunerStudio on my Lotus 7 build... but there's no room for anything like that in a GF friendly car.

It's a nice tool/toy but it'll probably use something like Torque until the price drops (if ever) since you can get the BT OBDII Dongle for that at something like $20. I get they are recouping their investment, but the dongle is only a couple of bucks in any significant qty. This is just cool toy pricing! It'll eventually drop... if they really intend on selling them!

$300 to duplicate basic live data display functionality a 1989 Cadillac could do without spending a dime (you just had to know what buttons to push on the center console information center). I do miss that car sometimes.
