For Those Utilizing OBD II Scanners...

If you're running an OBD II scanner for real-time data display, I would love to see trans temp. Is that an available metric?

I am planning on using an old iPhone for display, mounted in a semi-permanent manner. (I'll remove it when parking with no doors.)

BlueDriver has good reviews on Amazon with more than 500 reviews. Is anyone out there in love with their solution?

I'm running AeroForce Interceptor .

It can get up to 50 different items .

Mounted centered behind steering wheel .

Comes with mounts , real easy and simple .

I use it to monitor coolant , trans-temp ,and intake temp , LT fuel trims on B-1and B-2 mostly , all on one button control .

Not sure of your setup, Buggy, Trail only, or DD, but my 15 Rubi actually lists the tranny temp in the dash display stuff. You scroll through the options to see it. Not sure what year you have but might look there if that's all you are wanting.

Daily Driver 2008 JKU on 35" BFG KM2's. I do not have the extended in-dash info that you have.

Looks interesting. I run most of the summer with no doors or roof. Any idea how waterproof it is?

My 2012 Rubicon doesn't have that or the individual tire pressure. I wouldn't mind so much except my 2014 Ram does have it and every time I use it I wish it did...

I'm right there with you. My wife has this in her 2014 Town and Country.

Red Dixie Cup , Toby Keith .

When I'm door-less and top-less , (naked) I put a Red Dixie Cup over it .

I've only had it 7 months , seems as though it would be rain resistant but I don't want to risk it so I cover it . The cup fits just right , won't blow off in the wind even at speed .

I am using the odbII reader with the torque app and I am able to get the trans temp by entering a separate code for the trans temp. I'll have to look it up when I get a chance

I checked with Aeroforce, the Interceptor is not waterproof. Water resistant, yes. Water proof, no. I am looking at an a-pillar mount or the sPod with a 2 1/16" gauge mount.

I also use the torque app on my phone and I love it. It gives tranny temp and lots of other cool metrics. The obd 2 adapter can be bought on Amazon for under $20 and the app is only like 5 bucks
