Hey, I thought I would just mention this sweet app I just bought ($1.99 on Amazon). It's called Scanner911 and it has several police/fire/emt transmissions throughout the country. Also a few from other countries as well.

I am listening now. There's a little crap hole motel downtown that has 2 people that OD'd in separate rooms that appear unrelated. Kinda weird.

Edit - the other thing that I like is it has replay. So if you missed what they said, just back it up.

The local stations around here have gone encrypted. Apps and actual scanners stopped working locally last week.

I have a USB ELM327, and I also noticed that Torque Pro has a USB selection.

I wonder if that would work with a USB adapter to micro usb?

This is the one I got. It was 15 dollars on Ebay. It works great.



Neither my Droid X, or my buddies S2 would connect to his ELM 327 (below) on a Ford, but they would connect on his GMC.

i am having issues getting my obd2 codes from being pulled. my tablet has usb host(i can plug in a usb keyboard and it works) but no bluetooth. i can hook up a usb bluetooth adapter. but with the obd2 dongle as my only bluetooth device, i cannot test if my tablet is working with bluetooth

Bought a Samsung Galaxy S3 this morning and im pretty excited about it. I bought it from Radio Shack online since it was $50 cheaper than everywhere else. Should be here Friday. Cant wait to get since this will be my first phone that isnt an older model. Its replacing a LG Optimus that was my first android smart phone. Love the android part but hate the damn phone.

theres a free one called Scanner Radio. I've used it quite a few times, even in tandem with a real scanner, during storms.
