    Has anyone messed with importing Prius PIDs into OBD Fusion?

    I've switched to an iPhone, and am tired of remembering to bring my old Android phone with Torque Pro as a code reader. I have an ELM327 WiFi reader and am looking at OBD Fusion since it has both Android and iOS apps available.

    Can I import the Prius PID file listed here on PC for Torque?

    OK, easier than I thought on Android.

    I went into the Settings, User Defined PIDs, clicked the 3 dots top right, chose "Import from file", and when it couldn't find SeaWolf's CSV file, it said to place it in the root of the shared storage directory (root directory shown in My Files/ File Manager). Dropped the English unit one there, tried again, and it saw it.

    It showed all the PIDs with checkboxes. Unfortunately I did not see a Check All box, so had to run through the whole list and check off each one.

    Hopefully the iOS version will be that easy, since I don't know where it will require the files to be, nor if I will be able to put them there. I haven't bought the iOS version yet, $10 is more than I normally like spending, but if the Android version works well enough, I'll buy it.

    So far, the Topdon ELM327 WiFi adapter I bought keeps losing connection with OBD Fusion randomly. I'll play around with it in Torque Pro to see if it is the same there. That adapter is a bit long to leave in place while driving, I have an OBD extension cable to try it with, but also have a much smaller WiFi adapter on the way here via slow boat to test.
