I just had a quick look and saw a lot of the same info that the flashpro can adjust and hoped that this much cheaper piece of gear could not do the same adjustments is all

no mate, these cheaper devices only read. As you rightly said the only way you can adjust the ECU is by Flashpro or similar

Thats good what a kick in the balls that would be if this device costing a fraction of the price could be used to tune the car ..... well only for us that have bought a flashpro/kpro etc for future tuners that would be a godsend lol

Making a connection to the ODBII, in whatever way, does not mean you're able to reprogram the ECU. There's lots more involved.
It like thinking when you can plug in a network cable, you can hack the internet...

I think the first thing to do is a bluetooth discovery with your PC to see if you can detect the ODBII device. When it detects, you can connect to it but then you need a device driver to run some kind of service over the bluetooth connection. And after that you need some software that uses this service to collect some ODBII data. There is some freeware around that can collect general ODBII data, but most car makers use extra (non-standard) commands for their proper ODBII-stuff.

So:
1. Bluetooth connection
2. Service over bluetooth (probably "serial port" in this case)
3. ODBII software that uses this serial port for connection

Hope this helps.

Send a message via MSN to Brungle
if you have an iphone* its less hassle if you buy a OBD2 wifi adapter, android phones will work fine with the bluetooth ones.

to answer your original question yes it is possible to connect one othe OBD2 devices to your 06 civic.

(*its possible to get iphones to work with an OBD2 bluetooth adapter but you need to have a jailbroken phone running roqyBT4 (look on cydia) which is 5Euros and dooesn't work well on ios 5.0.1)

Dashcommand is very good has long as you are careful what skins you use. Some are so slow. This is my favorite Dashboard Details - DashXL.net.

Also remember to input ALL the cars parameters I.e gear ratios, curb weight ect

Some values as: MAP PID, Lambda PID calculated, drag coefficients.... need correction. Also i think gear ratios are not the same as final drive ratios. So where do we find them?
