Like many others on here, having a oil temp and pressure display would benefit me greatly. I always try to wait a good 10 mins after the coolant warms up to romp on my car, but would love to find a more scientific approach.
There’s a couple of other guys trying to fabricate actual gauges for this so maybe they could move their discussion in here.
I did a little research and was wondering if anyone had used a device like this with any success: https://buy.garmin.com/shop/shop.do?pID=38354&ra=true
^It’s a OBD-II reader with a bluetooth connection. It works with Garmin Nav units and Android phones/tablets. Aside from a number of other features, it claims to be able to display Oil temp and pressure in the gauges feature. Thoughts? I may just grab one from Amazon and pay the $4 for overnight shipping just so I can test it out this weekend. Unless someone has already tried and failed or knows of a reason why this wouldn’t work with our cars.
