Very nice user interface. Is there a lag on the reading?

I got the OBDlink MX module with Torque Pro & OBDLink app but the reading are not real time, about 1-1.5 second lag.

Now add the video interface from Prestigious Society so you can send the graphics directly to your in car monitor! Looks cleaner than their discontinued CAMP2.

How much was it?

I use a japan buying service to buy from a japan online store.

Here's the site that sells it cheap: http://item.rakuten.co.jp/ap-misty/hks-obl-l-01/
The buying agent quoted me $141 + $13 express shipping

The japan buying service I use is: http://www.whiterabbitjapan.com

Some observations ... It looks like HKS is getting out of the video interface market. They discontinued CAMP2 which went directly to composite video making CAMP2 easier to interface into the GS. Instead, they are going with ob-link which pipes the video to android. The video is more crisp, but one still needs to go to composite video or HDMI to go through the Prestigious Society video interface to the GS.

CAMP2 also had built in alarm functions which will sound if one of the monitored values go out of range. I believe Blitz also has a unit that will do the same, but graphics is also not as nice.

CAMP2 example:

CAMP2 and Blitz also has interface modules to get signals from external sensors that are not available through the OBD-II port such as exhaust gas temp, and air/fuel ratio which are important in forced induction applications.

In summary, ob-link will look and work great through the GS' gigantic display (as long as you have an android device), but the other units would be better in terms of function for those that are considering forced induction (IMHO)
