Recommend OBD dangle and iOS and Android apps

Question

Any recommendations on WIFI/Bluetooth OBD dangles?

Also do these OBD dangles work directly with the new IOS and Android apps of ABRD, or do they need to have and intermediate apps such a Torque Pro?

Thank you for any advice.

I am using the Vgate iCar Pro with my iPhone and the EVNotify app. I set it up on my work provided iPhone 11Pro which doesn't leave the car when I'm on roadtrips, it just moves between the wireless charger and center console when I go into a store. Idea there was it would remain connected to the car while I go into stores during charging, leading to less PITA and more accurate charing data.

The ABRP app doesn't appear to connect to Bluetooth. It's also rather buggy on both my iPhone 11Pro and SE, running 13.3 on each. Clicking Settings crashes the app until you click the ABRP logo and then Login. That is really intuitive... I'm also not a fan of the UI/UX, bu that is another discussion.

I can't edit my post but I would like to add that the dongle powers off after some amount of time under iOS - maybe 30min - which requires you to disconnect/reconnect the dongle. And the EVNotify app pauses every few minutes as well. I think I am going to buy an Android phone (Moto5 is about $50 on Amazon) and tether that to my iPhone.

@SiGmA_XI did have the same issue: with an android phone the dongle stays active. Note: you need to access the hidden settings menu of evnotify (tap multiple times on the version number in the settings menu) to activate the "keep working in the background"
