Some Adapters such as the OBDLink LX and MX go into a power saver mode when the car is off, It works really really well its fast and responsive too. I am going to write up reviews of the apps to see which work best for now with the 159 :)

Here is the thread http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa...-159-obdlink-lx-or-mx-do-159s-have-gmlan.html really the thread should be renamed to something a little more appropriate

i have a cheap ebay special bluetooth dongle. works really well with 'Torque' app, not so well with 'AlfaOBD' it doesnt connect to every ECU and i suspect its an interfacing issue.

Also have a generic USB ELM Cable (plus patch leads) for the in depth stuff. i dont think 'apps' are the way to get serious Diagnostics done, its way easier on a laptop. :)
