Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner Recommendations

Am thinking about getting a Bluetooth OBD2 scanner and related software for my iPhone. Post up your suggestions and experience with them.

This is what I have. It's inexpensive, but it does everything I could need.

Am hoping to use one of my old iPhones as the interface.

Amazing that upon a visit to that website, I still can't tell what the heck they are trying to sell you.

I use a cheap Amazon bluetooth dongle and either Forscan (free) or Torque Pro (maybe $5). Torque Pro does so much it's hard to beat.

Dashboss is what I use in all my cars. Can be used to monitor vehicle diagnostics as well as reset check engine lights. Hey have additional attachments to monitor egt temp, etc for diesels. Only compatible with apple software so use your iPhone, I touch or iPad to display
Can also record and data log, I use it at the track to monitor temps, boost, etc

If wanting the ability to reset ABS, SRS, EVAP, etc. there aren't many mobile device/Bluetooth setups that do it.
Bluedriver is one of them. REV C isn't.
I went the diagnostics tool route and recently bought this Innova tester.
