PID for OBD2 Scan Tool for 07 Tranny Temps

I drive a 2007 Ram 1500 5.7.* I have searched everywhere that I know for information on using an OBD2 Scan Tool that transmits via Bluetooth to an iPad App which will create a Dashboard which will show my Transmission Temperatures.* *Has anyone been able to set up an iPad to do this?* I have a Veepeak OBDCHECK Ble bluetooth Scan Tool and I am trying to figure out if the are any Apps that will show Tranny Temps.* Is there a PID on the 07 Ram that offers this reading?* I have noticed that most guys install gauges that operate from DIY installed sensors on the cooling lines, but I also have noted several comments on various forums that the 2007 and up Rams have such sensors already built into the tranny.* I just cannot seem to find an App that will access that PID.*

There are several Apps that will create a Dashboard showing various real time information (speed, rpm, fuel, etc) but as I plan to tow a camper this summer on a very long road trip, over mountains, I want a Tranny Temp gauge.* The Torque Pro App web page indicates that it will show this reading (although I am not sure for 3rd Gen Rams), but it is Android only and I have an iPad.* Apparently I can create a "custom PID" but I do not even know for sure if my 07 Ram has that built-in sensor. Any advice will certainly be appreciated!

My snapon scanner has the pid in the data stream. It’s literally named trans temp. Not all scanners will show all pods though so it may or may not show up.

At least the fact that the SnapOn scanner can access that data is encouraging! I read somewhere this evening that the App developers have to buy the PID's from Chrysler and that is expensive. I do not know if that is true or not. Apparently Ford is more forthcoming with providing the PID's, as is Toyota and even GM. I also see that it is possible to create custom PID's within some of the Dashboard apps and it may be possible to access the Tranny temps, but that is WAY above my head!! Thanks for the help!

Aeroforce Interceptor gauge shows trans temp. Maybe check with them to see if they have a bluetooth capability.

Thanks! Those gauges are great but a bit over my budget right now, as are most of the Transmission Temp kits that place a sensor in the fluid cooling line.... I may be forced to budget one of these systems but I thought that there might be a less expensive solution if the 2007 OBD2 port had the Transmission data available. Thanks again!

Gotcha... I'm sure your 07 has trans temp readout @ the obdll port. My 03 did..

Well, I have spent a few hours reading on Forums and on the web and apparently Chrysler simply does not release their proprietary PID's to the public nor to software developers unless a hefty price is paid....at least that is what I can gather.

It has been suggested by others that the OBD2 app developers that do include Chrysler PID's for such things as Transmission Temps, etc. have paid thousands for the data. Ford, GM, Toyota and others (to varying degrees) have apparently taken the opposite approach and recognized that Gearheads use and will continue to use the OBD2 port Adapter and Apps for customization of Tablet/Phone Dashboard Gauges. Many Chrysler owners do indeed think that being able to monitor live reporting of what is going on in their engine and transmission is important.... Shame on Chrysler!! IMO.
