Re: new Tesla Model 3 looks like Focus Electric!

In the forums they've been analyzing the sideview PR photos (using the wheel size as a reference). Consensus is that the overall length is about 168" making it about 5" shorter than the Focus.

Re: OBD Scan Tools Info / Data

///Sounds good to me/// . -- Correction; as noted below by hybridbear: you need the wifi version of the OBDLink MX for IOS. - I suggest you spend some time reading through the FORScan forums; It's been a year since I went through them and I haven't looked at the IOS discussions at all except for the...

Re: OBD Scan Tools Info / Data

OBDLink MX (Bluetooth) works well for me with FORScan. From discussions on their forums, it appears that they have made improvements that allow the cheaper ELM327's to work (if I can find my $15 one, I'll try it out with the android app).
