I have a 'Scangauge II' which you can set to show a range of OBD data such as coolant temperature, battery volts, inlet air etc.

It plugs in to the OBD port just in front of the drivers door. Not sure if there is any other suitable connection but I think not.

The Android phone App TORQUE PRO will give you continuous readout of many OBD2 data via a cheap bluetooth dongle from Amazon etc.

But if you've gone over to the dark side then you are lost (unless youve downloaded google maps for apple) and I cant help you.

Cheers, I think I'll send for one - do you have the dongle fitted all the time?
