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!

After paying for this, I can almost never get it to connect to my Bluetooth adapter, without at least a dozen attempts. Sometimes it won't connect at all. I just give up. The free app I downloaded from another company with less features connects first time every time. The free app connects when I open it, if I'm not already connected to the adapter.

This app has save me countless hours of troubleshooting. Get a cheap donlge from ebay or Amazon and never rely on the auto parts store to scan your car for a check engine light again. Plus if you are a little tech savvy and can interpret sensor data, this app provides a wide array of data taken from the live computer while running and in auxiliary power.

Though the UI feels exactly the same as it was years upon years ago, I've had no problems connecting to my newer car and using on my newer phone. Does what it advertises, even if it's not the prettiest to look at. Kept bringing my car to the shop and they couldn't read codes bc lights weren't on at the time so I managed to catch a window that they finally came on, popped my Viecar in, read codes and sent to the shop. Saved so much back and forth.
