While watching Olympics and scanning Gear&Gadgets, I stumbled on a couple of cool retro technologies that look promising for cars from 1996 to present. Fortunately for me, the previous owner spent some bucks ( $4G's) on my 996 installing JL audio amps, cross overs, alpine speakers, subs and a Kenwood 7" DVD, Sirius, XM satellite, iPod, Garmin NAV head. I always wanted to complete the trifecta and add Bluetooth, but the units are almost extinct and real pricey. A company called SUPERTOOTH has a neat little unit that clips on your visor , is self contained and pairs to iPhone and Android phones. Cost is $90.50. Since its portable, it can travel to your other car etc. Sweet. Anyone using it? ( www.supertooth.net ) The other interesting product is an OBDII scanner called AUOTMATIC. ( www.automatic.com ). For $100, you get a plug in unit that stays with the car and feeds you all kinds of real time information including monitoring for codes , CELs etc, gas use, GPS, route directions . It pairs with iPhone, Android. According to their website, Porsche 996 is compatible. Im tempted to try both, but wonder how useful the scanner really is.
