    As the title states, I'm looking for confirmation whether or not this Polaroid tab supports USB hosting...I find conflicting info on the web. I'm trying to use the tablet with a USB/OBD2 adapter and an app called Torque (for auto engine diagnostic/monitoring) as the tab does not support Bluetooth.

    When I try to connect the adapter (use the USB/obd2 adapter + USB/micro USB adapter that was advertised as OTG), the torque all does not reconize the adapter.

    The obd2/USB adapter (it's an Elm 327) does work...I have Bluestacks and if I use the cable on my laptop and run the Torque app in the Bluestacks emulator, it works fine.

    So, a few questions.
    1- how can I tell if my USB/micro USB adapter truly is a OTG adapter, and not falsely advertised as so?
    2- does the PMID702c even support USB hosting?
    3- and if not, can a driver or a rom/other hack add it? Or is the hosting done via te tablets hardware or firmware? I'm clueless on the technical side of USB related matters

    Thanks in advance!
