So this is going in my car....

Also downloaded a Car Launcher

I wanted to be able to keep my eye on live data, temperatures, fuel trim, and a couple of other details (just because I'm a nerd) :)). I'd like to be able to run diagnostics on the go should I ever need to as well. I downloaded Torque Pro onto my old Samsung S5 (this is now the phones sole purpose, well and for spotify :) ), I ordered myself a Bluetooth elm327 interface so I can run this setup. I'm thinking of attaching the phone where the Sunglasses holder is but I'm going to make it so I can obviously take the phone out so it's not on display all the time. I will report back how it goes for those interested :-? :thumbup:

Yeah that's the area mine is going. I've just made a removable mount for it :thumbup:
