bluetooth OBD reader linked to stereo head unit?

Bluetooth OBD readers are pretty awesome from what I've seen, and even better when you can get them to display on your head unit screen (rather then your cell phone). I'm not a techie - so having trouble figuring our how to set this up. I understand you need a head unit with canbus capability - but the only ones I see are for German cars.

Has anyone here done this, and if so please share how. (BTW I'm hoping to add this feature to my 07 GT.)

Good luck with that project. I saw several stereos on ebay that had that capability. Unless, I was regularly tracking my car, I'm not sure I would want that feature. I think of code reading for problem situations. I would be a nervous wreck watching my engine parameters at a glance. LOL. Let us know if someone has figured out how to program your stereo.

2006 GT, Strut Tower Brace, Gas Hood Struts, FR Intake Plenum cover, Metal Fuse Box cover, Moroso brake reservoir cover, Rear shock tower brace, Front Bumper Lip Spoiler, JVC DVD Head unit w/ back-up camera, satellite Radio and USB input, 2 - 12" sub-woofers, 4 - 6"x8" speakers, 2 - 6.5" speakers to replace the door subs, 3 amplifiers, LED lights under the hood and in the trunk, chrome e-handle on parking brake handle, chrome cup holder trim, and trunk lid cover with running pony emblem.
