Best OBD2 for use with Torque Pro?

Hey everyone,

I am looking for everyone's opinion on what the best OBD2 with BT. Over here it can be a pain to find one that's good and even harder when ordering one and waiting up to 6 months for customs to clear a package since they have a fear that everything is either pork, alcohol or sent by the CIA.... So I want the best I can get without paying a fortune.

Below is the only OBD2 I found and use here.

Thanks in advance

The generic WiFi obd I think typically use the same chip set. The most important feature is on/off switch and ease of getting to the button. I have a basic one without a power switch and it needs to be unplugged and replugged to reset them

I'd say mine has the same internals, it has worked reliably in my E53 and E83, both 3.0 diesels. I had to superglue the loop of cord to the case to enable removing it from the recessed OBD port on the X3. I ran / run Torque Pro on an Eonon head unit in the X5 and this pictured 10.25 Android in the X3, via bluetooth.
