In this video, I show you a new gadget I purchased for our 2018 Ram Cummins diesel truck. The product is called a BlueDriver OBD2 Pro Scan Tool. The Bluedriver hardware plugs into the trucks OBD2 (On-Board Diagnostics) port and sends data from the truck’s computer via Bluetooth to a smartphone or tablet app.
The app contains a ton of diagnostic tools and information. However, the main reason I wanted it is to be able to read Check Engine codes and use its live gauges to report my Turbo/Exhaust Gas Temperatures. Something my stock truck gauges don’t report. Hopefully, it will help me keep my engine running cooler and lasting longer.

A quick update on the Bluedriver OBDII reader I bought a few months back. So far it has been performing as expected, no complaints.
I mainly use it to monitor our Ram 3500 diesel engine exhaust temps and check if there have been any trouble codes reported. Bluetooth connection has performed well with my Android phone and tablet as well as our older iPad.
