This plugin for Torque Pro allows you to share the connection from the OBD2 device with other devices running Torque Pro
For example, you may be running Torque on your Android in-car head unit or tablet - you can use this plugin to share the OBD2 connection and connect torque running on your mobile phone as well
Steps for use:
* Install the plugin on the android device that has the OBD2 adapter connected
* Bluetooth Pair that android device with the other android device that you also want to connect to using Torque
* Start torque on both devices
* (On the remote device) tell torque to connect to your andriod headunit/tablet using bluetooth
* Done! your connection is now shared
Improve your mobile computing experience.

NOW INCLUDES SOCIAL FUNCTIONS!!!! In the repeater detail screen, click the I AM HERE button. All users will see that you are on that machine! This can be used to find your friends or a machine with a user on it. In Application settings you can turn on APRS posting. This posts your current position with the repeater you are checked into. Soon there will be a repeater view that shows local checkins and another that shows worldwide checkins that have EchoLink or IRLP.
NOW INTEGRATED WITH THE EchoLink APP!!
Over 50,000 repeaters and growing in 178 countries! Now the Official Repeater Directory of Canada and Radio Society of Great Britain!
RFinder (Repeater Finder), the premier Ham Radio repeater locating tool for Amateur Radio operators, allows you to find repeaters all over the world based on your current location or a specified location. It allows sorting by distance or by Trustee callsign as well as filtering by band and radius in miles or kilometers.
Social functions! Let other hams know you are on a repeater through RFinder AND APRS (optional)! Find an EchoLink node in RFinder and call it with one click via EchoLink! Automatic data updates as you move!
Repeater Finder (RFinder) taps into The World Wide Repeater Directory, including IRLP and EchoLink information.
Our Amateur Radio repeater locator database is growing daily.
Access to the Directory is included for one year then it will be an annual subscription for $9.99, and your subscription works for all platforms...Android, iPhone/iPad/iPod, www.RTSYSTEMSINC.com and chirp.dansplanet.org radio programmers, as well as web.rfinder.net. Each purchase of a new platform advances your annual to a year from that new purchase date. Windows Phone is coming!
If we do not have your repeaters listed...please do not refund or give us a bad rating...add repeaters at http://add.rfinder.net or request an add or update from the app.. Don't forget LAT/LON (in decimal), use periods as decimals, please.
The application accesses our Worldwide Repeater Directory and scanner directory for Amateur Radio (Ham Radio) but only stores information for repeaters within approximately 80 miles (125 km) from your location on your handheld at any one time, saving you room on your device and allowing distance calculation and mapping features to operate smoothly. It uses geolocation either via cell tower triangulation, GPS or manual location entry (so you can look up the repeaters you will use on vacation or business trips, etc.).
If anyone has lists of Amateur Radio repeaters from their countries we would love to incorporate that into our database.
Worldwide IRLP and Echolink nodes.
We support Android 2.2 and above!
Planned Future Developments
Posting repeater checkins to Twitter!
Contact us if you need apps created that are back-ended by IBM Lotus Domino, or any other database! Yes, Tablets!

Many thanks for all the encouragement and five star ratings! We are overwhelmed and extremely motivated!
*Information about the WLAN test:the integrated iperf client program makes it possible to measure the maximum data throughput via TCP and UDP between smartphone or tablet and the target computer within a network. FRITZ!App WLAN acts as a client, any remote site as a iperf server. During the tests the different parameters of the TCP/UDP protocol are altered; ping, DNS and HTTP requests are sent to gather information concerning the available bandwidth, latency, fluctuation and data loss in the network.

The repeater listings that appear in the ARRL Repeater Directory® are based on information provided annually by volunteer repeater coordinators throughout the United States and Canada. If information about a repeater is not submitted to the ARRL, it is not published. If a repeater appears to have been omitted from an ARRL product, or if the information that does appear is incorrect, please contact the responsible repeater coordinator first.

ATTENTION REPEATER OWNERS: If you discover an error in this edition of the ARRL Repeater Directory®, please do the following:
* Notify your repeater coordinator.

The app is very simple to set up just needing an amateur radio callsign and the APRS passcode for that callsign (available on request from Cross Country Wireless).
Menu options include GPS position information including WGS84 locations for worldwide use and.OSGB locations for UK users. Another menu option also opens an OpenStreetMap based on the GPS fix.
The app can be used on any Android phone or tablet with GPS (and Bluetooth for use with a DigiTracker). If your Android tablet does not have GPS then the app will not work.
Note...the GPS on some Samsung phones doesn't work with this app. As a result the app is now provided free of charge for amateur radio experimentation.
Be careful if using this while driving a car. The app is not suitable for operating while driving.
By default, it shows APRS positions for HAM radio operators in the Nordic countries. Its user-interactions is mostly in norwegian. We may consider extending the area and translating to more languages, if there is interest. Contributtions and suggestions are welcome. The Polaric Server project is on GitHub.

2. Touch screen
3. Bluetooth function and/or USB host function
- ID-51A/E (PLUS) 50th Anniversary model
*Not all functions are usable.
To use the RS-MS1A with a supported transceiver, you need an internal Bluetooth unit or the OPC-2350LU data cable. See your transceiver’s instruction manual for details.
- The RS-MS1A may not work with all Android devices, even if it is one of the tested devices. This is because an application program on your device may conflict with the RS-MS1A.
- You may need to install additional file managing and image processing software.
- Your Android device must be USB host function compatible to communicate with your transceiver through the OPC-2350LU cable. Even if your device is USB host function compatible, the RS-MS1A may not function properly.
- You may need to connect to the Internet through a Wireless LAN, a 3G network or an LTE network for some functions.
- The RS-MS1A supports only portrait orientation. It does not support Auto Rotate.
- Remove the data cable when the Android device is not used to reduce the devices power consumption
- The RS-MS1A program may lock up when transmitting some high-quality or large size image files, or continuously operated for a long time. In that case, restart the program.
- Depending on the Android device, the power supplied to the USB terminal may be stopped while in the display sleep mode or power saving mode. In that case, remove the “Screen timeout” check mark on the Application Setting screen of the RS-MS1A.
- When you transmit an image file with the baud rate set at 4800bps, some of that data may be lost. In that case, set the baud rate to over 9600bps.
