Onboard Bluetooth on newer vehicles tie up connection
« on: August 09, 2018, 02:56:32 AM »
Many of the newer vehicles have onboard Bluetooth now , so does that make this less useful than the hardwired unit when you want to monitor the gauges while driving as opposed to just recording MPG data ? I was considering getting this until I realized the phone would already be tied up with the Bluetooth connection to the car . Possibly as an alternative a old smartphone could be used as a dedicated display , provided there is no need for cellular connection .

I don't come to this forum very often and just saw your post.   I've connected via bluetooth to the Ultragauge  Blue and to the vehicle at the same time to stream music.  The latest Google OS Pie allows 5 bluetooth connections at the same time with a single device. 

Hope this isn't to late to help, good luck.
