I've purchased an ELM 327 wifi OBD II Interface and am using the IPhone 6 and OBD Fusion App. I have adjusted all the iP addresses, etc per the instructions but continue to get a connection error when going through the protocol's. Seems the wifi connects but I have issues with getting the app to connect to the truck. Anyone else having this problem that can lend a hand? I've tried many things and still can't get this thing to connect!

I was having issues connect issues with the cheap blue Amazon OBDII BT modules. I broke down and got a OBDlink LX and it connected fast and easy.

From what I've been hearing the Elm 327 is hit or miss. I'm personally running one without any issues. Obd link LX sounds like the way to go.

I'm using a cheap elm 327 purchased a few years back on eBay... No issues running fusion on the Eco D, worked right away with no setting ip addresses or any of that. Just force the phone to pick the wifi network, it will hesitate as there is no internet connection

My only issue I've noticed since the last update is if you run more then 1 or 2 custom PID's at a time they will freeze up and stop reading:

Does anyone know if the Custom PID's for Ford or GM that are listed in the files on Fusion will work for the ram. Have an iPhone, and having trouble setting it up to show the regen.

Sorry none of those work. For help on how to create custom pids, see http://www.ram1500diesel.com/forum/ram-1500-diesel-tuning/1582-[official]-torque-pro-app-thread.html?highlight=Official+torque, it should help you create what you need. Fusion works pretty much the same way.

I run a separate older iPhone that only connects to my OBD wifi. Works every time. When I ran my regular phone it would drop all the time. Wonder if with wifi, Bluetooth, and cell signals if it just overwhelmed the device.

Mine looks like this. Just before and during regen.

I also run another screen with other info I like to check out. But mostly I just have this screen up.

Tried a cheaper wifi version for about $20 and it would struggle at times to stay connected. I now use the cheap one just to check my other cars for codes.

Nice - thanks! I looked at that one but read a lot of reviews on Amazon about people having connectivity problems after a few mins. I ordered the Bluedriver one to try out... but not sure if it will work with the Fusion app. It does have a few app of it's own however that seems to look good. Not sure if it has those nice looking gauges however :)

So on your gauge setup are the soot and egr gauges part of those custom pids where you labeled them yourself?

Thanks OttRam for the update.

BBJ would you mind posting your pids and dashboard setting file from fusion?

Trying to reproduce the REGEN button.

Yup all those gauge's are created by me on the fusion app. Just play around with the app and try creating what you want to see. The Torque pro thread should show you how to create those user defined pids you want. I have in addition to what's on fusion already;
DPF capacity
DPF regen average distance
DPF regen average time
EGR valve commanded position
EGT 1
EGT 2
EGT 3
Fuel rail press/temp
Regen on/off
Turbo Guide vane position
Charge air cooler temp
And a couple more I don't use

Just got my adapter but do not know where the ODB port is located on my ED 1500?

Found the port... not a great location as it sticks down so far it will be hit by legs while driving... actually a stupid location..

Cheap Blue adapter does not link with my Android phone.. just ordered the suggested one plus a extension cable so I can mount the tool under the dash away from my legs... this one shuts off so it is not on all the time..

Now I have another piece of Chinese crap.... will add it to my Wall of Shame...
