    Vehicle : cdti 150

    Trim : sri

    Engine : z19dth

    Year : 2005

    Default mobile phones, i love em

    so had the nokia N8 from new, still more than happy due to all the stuff you can do on it, HD output for the screen im going to fit in the vec, all sound can run through the radio, great as i have the oem unit (no mp3) it's like a mini pc,sounds great when watching movies..... e.c.t

    now i had the eml light on after the power run in leeds, so though about buying a fault reader......pants
    buying a real time monitor off ebay( cheapy no colour)
    so i opted for the best solution to my needs
    i bought a samsung galaxy s, bought a bluetooth obd reader, went on the android market and bought this at £2.95

    https://market.android.com/details?i...bC50b3JxdWUiXQ..

    and i works brill, light version is free but for that price you cant go wrong..
    anyway as soon as you turn your ignition on it talks to you telling you the faults, all dials are changable, i dont even know what half of it means though lol but its fun to watch.... lovin the 0-60 and how it tells you what bhp ur running at the time you are

    Looks good that Andy, I might try and find an iPhone equivalent. Have you got a link to the OBD reader you got?

    This looks interesting! Was thinking of getting a code reader but this looks just as good, only app I can see on AppStore on iPhone is this:

    Tidbid of info here, The bluetooth OBD adapter required won't work on DTI engines. I've tried

    The app works a treat on a few other cars and the info feedback is quite informative

    Just checked it out. That one is £28. For this sort of money I may aswel get one off eBay. All I want it to do is read fault codes and delete them
