I run 65 all around both towing and dry. Lots of capacity for the load I tow.

Yep changed all 4 today to 65 and will run them like that all the time, no reason to kick them to 80 only towing a 5500# Rockwood Roo Hybrid, towed fine when they were 65 in the rear and 55 up front. Dealer put them at 65 all around when they had to replace my Michelins under warranty. Apparently Ford was using 2014 tires on my 16 F350, they replaced all 4 to 2016's under warranty bc the old ones had dry rot.

I run 10k Fiver on 65 psi. The temp on front and back tires the same. I ran 65 PSI hauling the same trailer with the F 150 and has no issues. I did try 75 and shook all over with the fiver. The load charts shows 65 being just fine.

Once I get home tomorrow, I will plug into my 2014 F250 SD, 6.7L, and see how many PIDS are supported.

It's not the Bluetooth one you need. iPhone stuff works on WiFi. You need this one below.

I just got one today and it works fine.

Can you use a Bluetooth version otherwise you have to turn your phone into a WiFi hotspot to use the wireless one on an iPad? Right?

You should hopefully be close to 20ms response time.

I'm getting about 110 ms ping. The tech at Forscan told me about another URL that I might be able to use to access my adapter. He also said a blue tooth adapter like OBDLink MX Bluetooth works better with Android computers. and WiFi adapters work better with Apple phones and tablets.

Also, if you haven't yet, you will need to change the temperature settings to show Fahrenheit instead of Celsius as the default is Celsius. Yup, I did that.

See if it continues to give you a hard time.. if you keep the adapter plugged in which I believe I stated earlier I've kept it plugged in for over a week without using my truck with no battery drain issues. That may help...

Also one thing to note is that when you tap the connect button you need to wait for the car symbol to turn green. It will go from red (not connected) to yellow/orange (connecting and communicating with each module) to green (ready to start monitoring). I didn't know about the color change. I'll watch for that.

See here, the car is yellow/orange due to the computer modules just starting to load.



And then green once you are ready to go.



Makes you wonder why anyone would spend $400 for a monitor when for under $125 you can have an 8" tablet and all the hardware you need. FAR superior to any monitor on the market.
Yup. I think I'm only out about $60.00 and mine works OK. If I can get the ping time down some, I'll be happy!

ANDROID PHONE= BT or WIFI
APPLE STUFF= WIFI

You're only using WiFi signal to communicate from the device to the OBDII port. It's not for Internet connection.

The reason I got a tablet to do it is because when my phone is connected to my wifi adapter, I then lose my 4G radio in the phone so I don't get emails or can't browse the internet.

So I use my tablet instead. When you plug the OBDII adapter in, it automatically creates a small wifi signal. You then search on your phone/tablet for the wifi network and connect to it and you start communicating.

Do yourself a favor, go to Ford and buy their nozzle for the DEF containers. They fit on the 2.5 gallon jugs that you buy at Walmart. It prevents you from overflow or spillage and runs about $7.

Well worth it!!





You see the black o-ring... that snaps into the DEF neck and locks in so it won't spill. You tip the bottle up, it pours in and once it reaches the full mark, when you tip the bottle back down, all extra goes right back into container. No spillage or worrying about it shooting back at you.
