  2. Mk2 ECU Remapping, Software & Tuning Packages
    Hi, I've tried three different ELM327 based devices which I am led to believe 'should' work but none of them can connect to the ECU. One of them is a handheld and the other two are Bluetooth which connect to my tablet via an app like Torque Pro. Both worked fine on two previous Fords I had...
  3. Mk3 Lighting & Electrical
    Hope this helps someone somewhere. So, this is how I've wired up the dash cam to work with constant power so it enables the motion sensor for parking mode. Seen a few of the piggy back fuse methods but decided to go down a different route so I didn't have to mess with the fuse box or touch the...

    So, some of us might have been waiting for Android Auto external apps that will allow us to do more than just the official apps. The day is finally here. This opens up possibilities from possibly dangerous video players to nice apps like custom extra gauges etc. Will be interesting what else we...

It's identical in shape and size...
