OBD2 Diagnostic Devices

For you guys that are using an OBD2 Diagnostics device, I have a few questions.

Can I still connect to my radio with my phone for Pandora while being connected to the Device?

And which device are most people using or have used?

I use the OBDLink MX Bluetooth with DashCommand app, and have no problems streaming music from my phone though the receiver.

Good to know. Are you able to view your data on the radio as well?

Yes, OBD 2 should have nothing to do with your bluetooth for the radio even if it is a bluetooth OBD device.

BT has two lines of communications, MEDIA and PHONE. When you are using the
OBDII BT Adapter, you're on the PHONE data stream. That leaves the MUSIC
one open, so you can still stream music from the phone, while receiving data from the
OBDII adapter.

THAT is the simple explanation, if you want the technical aspect, you can look
that up.

Good enough to understand there. I went with the BFAX (#1 seller on Amazon) and am using the Torque Pro app. Works great so far, and im sure like others, you can select the gauges or graphs you want, and the layout as well. Thanks again for all the replies.

I bought a bunch of those "As Seen On TV" Micro Mechanic ones when they went
on sale to $5.00, and I even got one for $3.00. They are true ELM327 adapters.
They work with ForScan, unlike the Chinese ones that claim to be ELM332, they're
not.

I am using Torque on my '08 Mustang, with an Eonon Android Radio.
