Why is ezOBD using WiFi and not the superior Bluetooth?

Bluetooth is better because you can access the internet while talking to your car.
With Wifi you are cut off from the internet until you unplug the dongle.
Apple devices only support Bluetooth 4.0 or Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE), most of the Bluetooth dongles use older Bluetooth technologies.
Android on the other hand supports the older Bluetooth and can work these Bluetooth dongles.
There are a few BLE Bluetooth dongles but we have not developed for them yet.
Our goal for now is to support the cheap WiFi devices.
If there is a particular BLE device that you want us to support, then let us know.
If we find a BLE device on the market which is reliable and reasonably priced, we will add support for it.
