Hi,
this bluetooth device works
http://www.dealextreme.com/p/obdii-bluetooth-car-diagnostic-cable-black-blue-orange-dc-12v-42825


Programm for Android is Torque Pro (look in the Play Market)
I have the same setup, bluetooth dongle and Torque for Android. It's a great little setup, and considering the dongle only cost me 15 bucks shipped from Ebay and 5 bucks for the app, not a bad deal. I paid over 200 bucks each for the Aeroforce Interceptor on my last 2 cars!

How does that hook up to your car?
Plugs into the connector under your dash. Phone connects to the device via bluetooth.

FYI for anyone who wants it, you can get it from Amazon.com as well.

As far as I know, you can currently use the program to view and clear DTCs, as well as live view and log any readable sensor. This program doesn't support any other form of programming as far as I know.

One thing I question is if programs like these could be used to tune/change engine parameters? With a proper "tuning" program, I don't see why tuning is not possible through OBDII if it is a two way system...Just my thoughts.
