I use painter's tape to hold it into place, and if I need to remove it, no harm done!

I was thinking of getting the bluetooth dongle for the the OBDII system and using the android application on by phone since my phone is mounted on my window most of the time anyway. It would be pretty much the same output as a scangauge.

Ahh yes, here is the link to one, if anyone is interested. This is by far the cheapest I have ever found this so I think I'm going to get it. Way cheaper than a scangauge.

Placed an order for that exact unit last week and plan to use it in conjunction with the "Torque" Android appl. Waiting on delivery, which takes a while from DealExtreme.

How are you mounting your phone, by the way? Vent, windshield or have you find some miracle product?

Right now it's mounted on my window but I'm about to use the same mount I mount to the windshield and just build it into the space above my head unit.

Hey Patrick,

I like how your scanguage looks up there. Did you velcro it up in the corner, or is there a little bracket mounted to something else? (visor mount...?)

Thanks,
Chad

i bent up a metal bracket that kind of clips to the headliner then i used 3M double sided tape to hold the SG to the bracket.

And here you go, just remounted it today, but couldn't take a picture of it with the phone in because I only have a phone for a camera right now. You get the picture though

Well my OBDII Bluetooth reader arrived from DealExtreme and I think it might be DOA. The lights don't go on and I'm not seeing a device I can pair to .
