Hi, just wondering anyone has installed some monitoring gauges like Boost, water temp or oil temp in A1 ?
I want to install a Pivot 3-in-1 XV-A for my A1 via the OBD2 port
http://www.pivotracing.com/product/XV
but seems the OBD2 port does not provide signal to the Pivot.
Is the OBD2 port in A1 different from previous Audi like TT, A3, etc?

Maybe in the near future it can be activated in VCDS like the RS3 DIS.

I think that will give you Oil Temp and Boost.

I am not intending to show it on MMI display.
Actually, if some device that can read information from OBD2 and have RCA video output like the Blitz R-VIT DS I am using in my Subaru, I can show it on MMI through AV interface unit.

I use Torque to display data, and it will display almost everything you need to run the car inculding AF ration, boost gauge, water temp, oil temp and even exhaust temp.

Do not get the cheap ELM 237 as it will stop sending data to the phone after 2 mins, and the more expensive is worth the money ( KiWi ).

I will give you a call next week and show you how is works on my phone~
