Best WiFi ELM 327?

Greetings:

I've seen many threads suggesting using a smartphone or tablet along with the ELM 327 adapter to monitor the Excursion as a low cost alternative. I have an iPad and an iPhone, so I need to use a WiFi based adapter.

My question is, which ELM 327 adapter do you use with your iPad/iPhone and where did you get it?

Amazon has hundreds listed...Which one is best??

Are you trying to use the Torque App? There are apps available in the Apple store that are similar to Torque but Torque is Android OS only.

I say this only because of the Iphone Ipad reference needing WIFI.
