I use the OBDLink LX Scan tool in my SLK and our Fiat 500 in combination with the Torque Pro App without any issues!
You can leave it plugged in, it will not drain your battery :tu:

OBD Key is a branded one I've used and Torque has to be one of, if not the best app. Even the free version is pretty good.

Also worth noting that the Bluetooth OBD devices don't in my experience, connect with iPhone. For that you need a wifi version..

I have a garmin nuvi with the garmin version of a OBD II Bluetooth scanner. Realtime info alongside GPS navigation. It is called Ecoroute HD. Ran me $75.

Apple has made some minor changes in the I-phone BlueTooth stack.
Manufacturers of Bluetooth equipment have to pay for tha compatibility.

There os is so confusing and they have dropped there prices down which was unheard of many years ago .

Will apple go the same way ?
