    No problem... I was happy to see that there is an actual AT temp sensor

    Yes, I saw that. Wish I'd known that a couple of years ago. But I'm done with the Tacoma as far as PID's are concerned. It's time to move on to momma's CX-5.
    It's not our first Mazda, but it is our first non-Rotary Mazda.

    Thanks!

    Have you ever seen an actual difference between the at and engine temps?

    Yes. I said this above.

    "** What I noticed about temps was that on flat level ground the difference between coolant and AT temps was usually a few degrees. Head off to a hill towing a trailer and you will see a wide gap of 10-20 degrees. It was interesting to see how warm the rear diff gets too."

    Simple, with the Torque app, connection is basically automatic, with Forscan you have to go to the settings menu and where it says "Bluetooth adapter" you have to point to the connection that you want. Just about everything and anything is there, trans temps, rear diff temps, duty cycle of fuel pump, what gear the trans is in, rear parking brake motor voltages, fuel pump voltages, etc.

    A few days ago I downloaded the free version of Forscan to check it out, but couldn't get it to do anything. Did you use the paid version? If that's all it takes, I'm in...

    Used both. Free version comes with demo mode enabled, you have to disable it and then config

    AFAIK.. free version is just to confirm that app and your OBD connector will work... nothing more

    Well worth the $4.99 IOS/ $4.61 Android cost

    With Wifi OBD it is plug and play too.

    I already paid for the DashCommand app. Don't feel like paying for another app. What a shame.
    Also, if I leave the OBD tool connected the car suffers from some hiccups from time to time, I thought it wasn't related so I stopped using the OBD reader for more than a month. Today I decided to use it and the car threw errors and misfired twice, I will upload a picture. Anyone experienced anything similar with their OBD2 readers?

    Upload a pic and link to model you are using...I'm using some pretty generic ELM327 adapters and don't have any issues. As long as one isn't trying to run multiple OBD devices at the same time it should be fairly benign to the car.
