Default Torque Phone App

While browsing the Android Market recently, i came upon this app called Torque. It claims to be a OBDII communication app that can show you a great deal about your car. i was wondering if anyone had used this or something similar. It looks like i'd need to get a bluetooth ELM/OBD/PLX adapter from somewhere, but it might be interesting to try this out. Unfortunately many times things like this claim more than they can offer. but if there is some interest i'd be willing to shop around and see how it works.

link to info
Torque

Sorry if in wrong section

i'm thinking the idea was originally developed for the iPhone. all you need is the bluetooth ELM/OBD/PLX adapter(which is not easy to find) and the app.......i think

plx kiwi

I'm looking to go with bluetooth, just because i never use bluetooth for anything
