I am.

Using an AppRadio 3 and connecting it via MHL to my Galaxy SII, which is running AppRadio Unchained. I've got a Bluetooth OBDII reader semi-permanently mounted behind the 4x4 switch panel. DashCommand is pretty cool, the ability to view codes and clear them is neat, as are the other displays. Although, to be honest, the gas mileage display is really kind of depressing unless you're going down hill. :)

The AppRadio is pretty neat, especially with AppRadio Unchained installed. There are a bunch of neat apps that make trips more interesting. I'm a fan of 'Travel Radar', which shows nearly real-time radar maps around your current location.

Sadly, these apps kill the heck out of my battery on the phone. Charging via MHL provides less voltage than the phone is using. :(

Anything in particular you wanted to know?

no problem man... something i did have to do is modify the power wire of it cause it was constantly drawing current, even when the truck is off and was killing my battery. I just cut the wire to the 12v pin on the inside, went to a relay, and back into the other side of the cut 12v wire. Then just ran a switched power wire to the relay. Works great now!

I bought that same setup for CEL diagnosis. It works well once you establish the WiFi connection.

I don't really care to have it connected all the time.
