Looks sweet ! Nicely done installation. I notice your low mileage, too.
Get out there and break that thing in! I've had my Foz about a month

And the guy in the Nissan was an IDIOT! Too bad he didn't hit a truck!:shake:

Elm327 WIFI Wirless OBD2 OBD-II Car Diagnostic Reader Scanner Scan Tool

DashCommand is a decent iPhone app to display different gauges. the skin I'm using is called WRX. you can download/install it inside of the app

then i can also connect my iPhone to my pioneer deck and can control the app on the deck :D this requires the pioneer CD-iU51V interface cable which you can get off eBay for $8

i also have the Torque app on my HP Touchpad which runs Android OS too for fun





DashCommand on iPhone







DashCommand on the pioneer avic z140BH





Torque on the HP touchpad

ROTFL... I love the roll meter on the bottom right of the last picture but at the same time I feel like thats such a dangerous thing to put on there. Its way too inviting. Like me and my buddies need another reason to do stupid(fun) things. Now we need to see who can come the closest without going over

Looking into getting an iphone but like all the less legal apps for droids. If I convert Ill be PMing you for info on how to do that

Stay well so you can enjoy that sick fozz
