Is there a solution to monitoring CVT temps while driving? I've perused most of the threads regarding it, but nobody seemed to have anything that worked. I have the Torque Pro app and it displays trans temp BUT it is only displaying the engine coolant temperature numbers, as they stay identical always. So maybe someone has a custom pid to get the correct data. Anyone try cvtz50? I see one review that says it worked on a 2016 pathfinder, but not sure if it actually reads the correct data . Thanks

Hopefully someone will chime in. I have read of some aftermarket solutions where people were able to read this temp with aftermarket apps and scanners IIRC.

Cvtz50 appears to be the answer. Downloaded the demo and it reads ok so went with the full version. Looking good!

Nothing special. I'm using the same one that i bought 8 years ago for a Chevy Cobalt! I do believe they are hit and miss with quality though, so find one that works and keep it.

Well, it's not like I have a bunch to choose from... I also have this one that I use on my Ford on Forscan, it has MS-CAN and HS-CAN but I do not have any software for Nissan.

Of course. I guess what I'm saying is that the app works, so a new Bluetooth device is your solution.

Reading the specs of that one, it says it works with ALL OBDII protocols. I got mine of eBay in 2016 and got the cheapest one, I believe it was this one. This one says SOME.

I now wonder if that is why some custom gauges I installed in Torque to read AWD%, Boost and Knock for my SHO never worked because of that...

Ordered, thanks.

The CVTz50 spec says version v1.5 is required, not v2.1.
I purchased a v 1.5, ran demo, then purchased the full CVTz50.
Thanks to moderator for fixing the pictures.

I found this to be a good article in choosing an OBD2 adaptor, still haven't bought one, but now at least I know what to avoid


I was looking at this one as it mentioned US Chip

and maybe this one, but don't know if the extra $$ worth it ?
