Hi Everyone,

I am not a 'gadget guy' and wanted to get some insight on the Droid/torque/ obd connector interface.

I have a Samsung Galaxy and I suppose the torque will run on that. I'm coming up short on how to interface the Samsung with the OBD port.
What is the connecter that I need?
Thanks!
James

Yea, I kind of got that much. I should have been a bit more detailed at what info I needed;
Is there any brands that are 100% known to work with both our cars and the Samsung?
Are there any that are better than others, ones that are garbage, etc?

Connects nicely with torque app, I use it in the FIAT and VOLVO.

Thanks Chris

Anytime, I also have a Samsung but its a Optimus 3D. I use it soley for the torque App. I run it every night to keep an eye on things. I use a windows phone for the rest of the stuff.

Mine's on order. Too bad it takes so long to get it (from China?)...
