    Yes.

    I use that app with a bluetooth ELM327 interface from ebay.

    Reads live data and reads/resets codes

    Can you let us know how you get on with it? I've been looking at this for a while too.
    Thanks

    tried it using torque and a bluetooth adapter from ebay, and it was producing hundereds of errors every min, shows live data and read codes but with all the errors sent it back for refund.

    you won't regret it..dunno if you got the bluetooth or usb one but connect it to your laptop I use opcom for more serious stuff but there's loads of freeware apps for use with the elm interfaces (plus not just vx)... theres a nice one (i'll need to look on other laptop for name) that you input car weight, drag, etc and it works like a virtual dyno, ok so not very accurate but you can record 0-60/ 1/4 mile times etc so good for comparing tuning mods
