About this app

Realtime Charts is a plugin for the Torque Pro App and is the perfect tool for the automotive hobbyist, professional or DIY mechanic who wants to monitor, tune, diagnose or analyze their vehicle's performance. This plugin app allows the user to graph multiple engine sensors (i.e. RPM, Speed, MPG, HP, Torque, up to 10 different PIDs) simultaneously in real-time on an Android phone or tablet. The software graphs each engine sensor as a "series" on your Android device, allowing for in depth monitoring of the vehicle's performance. You can create your own custom charts (up to 100), specifying the sensors, sampling frequency, chart colors, series attributes, and much more. You can create stunning screen shots to share on social media and automotive forums.

New Feature in V1.16! Support for starting capture of sensor data based on one or more sensors matching your specific criteria! For example, refine your captures to when RPMs reach 2000 or speed is 50 mph or when both are true

New Feature in V1.14! Support for scatter plot analysis (in real time or on recorded/saved sessions)!

Awesome! Great for charting data in a clean and concise way. The one thing I wish the app had was a better interface to share and load chart data. There are options to upload chart configuration and the data as a CSV file, but nothing for the actual native chart data. There also is no native way to open external Realtime Charts data from another user making the share feature mostly pointless. If the sharing data aspect was more streamlined, car forums would go crazy with this app!

Finally getting the hang of designing charts that work with my vehicles' PIDs. Each is different, but now that I've invested some time (hard to come by) into learning what readings actually mean something, it's become a snap to piece together relevant charts for each. This is not a plug and play Torque extension, and if I remember correctly, it does not claim to be. So please take some time to figure out what it is that you want to track and how your vehicle's PIDs can be charted to show it. Great app!

Happy to answer any questions you might have with using the app. Thanks! Phil

Has potential to be great but; 1. Will not graph custom PIDs (always 0.0 even though they are fine in Torque dials). 2. Scale Factor of only X10s /X10s forces curves into less than 1/10 the screen ,factor should be able to be set to any value. Offset setting would also be nice. 3. Y-axis cannot be zoomed or scrolled, only X-axis. 4. No control over major divisions and minor divisions on Y-axis. If not for the above downfalls, I would highly recommend.

Robert - I was able to fix the Torque Pro "Fuel Status" PID issue, please upgrade to V1.59 or later, I worked around the Torque Pro app bug. Custom scaling factors (off by default) is in the app too, look under the "gear icon". Y-axis label counts and min/max y-axis values are in the app.

What's new

1.52 Added averages to scatter plot legend
1.54 Fixed Kia EV Custom PIDs, added Y axis label counts
1.55 Fixed reconnect logic to Torque Pro Service, scrolling perf, watchdog timeouts
1.56 Fixed Torque Pro 'Fuel Status' PID (03), added 'Fuel Status' loop decoding (Open/Cold, Closed/02, ...)
1.57 Fixed Android Q&R external storage access issue
1.63 Added Sharing Trip Data files
1.64 Using API 30
1.65 Replace commas in csv timestamp for some locales
