Question OBD Connection for Milage Tracking Analysis

Hi guys,

I am a proud new Toureg owner. I purchased a 2012 V6 FSI in Australia recently.

I need your advice on "OBD" details for this model.

Why? So I can use bluetooth apps like "TripMialeage", to keep exact track of odometer/milage records for tax purposes.
- It will also help me work out how much money Im spending vs making (I hope)

My questions:

1)Does anyone know if the 2012 model supports the code "OBD PID 31 “Distance traveled since codes cleared”"
2)Where IS the OBD connection socket? I found a cable called "VW-media-interface-lead 5N0035558" plugged into the glove box. Is this also the OBD connection?
-2.1)The socket - looks different shape/size of suggested OBD bluetooth readers - is there a known adaptor, or am I looking at the wrong thing?

Many many thanks for your advice.

Chris

Yes Chris, thats media related.

Make sure the obd bt dongle you get powers off with ignition, you dont want battery drain
