It can use the GPS to provide tracker logs with OBD engine logging so you can see what you were doing at any point in time

Works on any vehicle that uses the OBD 2 standard (most vehicles built after 2000, but can work for vehicles as far back as 1996) if in doubt check with your manufacturer first or look for 'OBD2' on written on a big white label in your engine bay
Works on vehicles made by Ford, VW, GM/Vauxhall/Opel, Chrysler, Mercedes, Volkswagen, Audi, Jaguar, Citroen, Peugoet, Skoda, Kia, Mazda, Lexus, Subaru, Renault, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Honda, Hyundai, BMW, Toyota, Seat, Dodge, Jeep, Pontiac and many more vehicle makes, European, US, Far East, etc. Some vehicle ECUs may support more/less features than others
The app needs a Bluetooth OBD2 adapter to work. The adapter is small and plugs into the diagnostics socket on the car which gives your phone access. You can find a list of adapters on: http://torque-bhp.com/wiki/Bluetooth_Adapters (Garmin EcoRoute HD adapters not supported)
If you buy one of the cheap china OBD2 ELM327 bluetooth adapters from ebay / amazon, then make sure you have a good returns policy with the seller
Some of the best reliable OBD2 / OBD adapters are the Scantool.net adapter, the OBDKey, and PLX Devices, OBDLink, Bluetooth, ELM327 and other adapters are supported - search on google for them
More features added every release - there are forums at http://torque-bhp.com/forums/ - if you want something added then let me know and I'll try to add it if it is possible! Vehicle ECUs vary in the amount of sensors supported
*PLEASE NOTE* Any reports of hanging or reboots after quitting the app is due to a bug in HTC devices and Galaxy Tab,this can be triggered by using the Pandora/Vlingo/Other BT apps. Disabling Pandoras new bluetooth settings fixes the problem, but HTC/Samsung need to release a fix.Please contact their support and request a fix,Thanks!
Doesn't always connect on its own. Sometimes I have to disconnect the OBD and reconnect it. Sometimes it won't show up on the Bluetooth list. Sometimes it just plain won't connect no matter what I do. I also keep getting notifications that there is icy conditions, it's been 80 degrees everyday for almost 3 weeks now. This bug is just a weird bug that has me yelling at it that it's too hot for icy roads. I had less issues with the free version than I have had with the paid version.

I use this app every time I get in my car. It's set up to running background anyway, so it's nice to have real time information and data logging as well as GPS and everything. It's a great scan tool, work for every car that I've put it on. The only complaint that I have is that the plugins are old and there are no plans to update them for certain vehicles, so that would be nice as well as an actual dashboard instead of a set of gauges to set up.

It has always worked for me in several different cars. I think what would really set this app apart would be able to run it through Android Auto on my stereo's screen. Oh and there isn't a way to switch themes as described in the tips. But overall very useful! Thanks!
