After a lot of forum and internet research, I acquired a bluetooth device that is monitored by an iPhone. Up until now, as I understand it, iPhones could only be accessed via wifi or USB. I intend to use it on my 2002 SLK230 (can also use it on my other non-benz vehicles).

The device is rather expensive ($99), from an Apple Store or Best Buy. I don't expect the OBD code information to be as thorough as other readers, but it is purported to do the following: provide OBD readings with definitions, give you trip map and mpg usage, let you know if you are driving efficiently (compared to EPA standards) with its "driver assistant," keep track of your vehicles whereabouts (if like me, you sometimes forget where you parked), and contacts 911 for you with up to three other contacts if you deploy your airbags.

The device is made by automatic.com and is continually being updated due to user input. I'll update this thread with use, if anyone is interested. It may not be as useful as I hope, because I have not yet tried it.

The app comes with the device, so there is no additional charge. I encourage you to take a look at the information on their website at Automatic.com.

Bluetooth replaces a cable, nothing much is different on either end, so no expected differences in use.
