    obdlink mx which one should i get... wifi or bluetooth?

    so here is the dilemma I have.

    according to obdlink site both units from them should work for my cell phone. but is there really a draw back?

    let me explain.

    I currently have a Samsung cell phone which uses android. the phone can use Bluetooth and wifi. the majority of stuff used by the phone is Bluetooth. I'm not using wifi that much. actually I don't think I'm using it at all even for internet connection I just use my cell phone data plan.
    so when I'm in the car I have my Bluetooth connected to the car so that I can get my calls to go through the stereo and it becomes a handsfree unit. that means I cant use the obdlink mx if this is happening. only one thing can be connected at a time.

    so I am thinking of getting the wifi mx version to use instead and be able to have everything working at the same time.

    my question is, does wifi for the android suck enough that I should just still get the Bluetooth?
