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

Hi mate
Obd port is just above the right knee when in drivers seat.
Will it work... I think so, depends upon which make model you use

PERFECT! Thank you!

So - that other port is basically 'media' related?
Yes Chris, thats media related.

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