About this app

See what your car is doing in realtime, get fault codes, sensor data and more!

An OBD II engine ECU diagnostics tool that uses a cheap bluetooth ELM / OBD adapter to connect to your car OBD2 engine management system

Some features include:

* Shows and Resets engine fault codes / DTC trouble codes stored in your car

* Can export map/track log files to Google Earth KML / CSV

* Engine performance data(0 to 60, 0-100, quarter mile, etc) (full version)

* Head up Display / GPS HUD mode perfect for checking your speed at night

* Data Logging functions including web upload and file logging, you can even upload data to your own web server from sensors you choose

* Can help you fix your car and helps keep car repair costs down!

* Turbo Boost gauge support for VW vehicles (in Pro version only)

* MPG for Petrol/Gasoline vehicles. (Pro version has diesel support)

This is the free/basic version - it lets you get a feel for the application and lets you find out if it works with your vehicle / obd2 adapter combination; but may contain some small bugs including not working on some nissan/chrysler/subaru ECUs. The paid version has support for more vehicles and ECU types, looks a lot nicer, and works with more cars / trucks

The paid version has more features (HorsePower,Torque, 0-60 , quarter mile tests, graph data, map / track views) + no adverts and exra dial/display types! and better ABS / Knock sensor support, Transmission temperature support for some makes of car / trucks (GM / Ford, etc), and Turbo Boost on many more vehicles (including VW)

Works on vehicles made by Ford, GM/Vauxhall/Opel, Chrysler, Mercedes, Volkswagen, Audi, Jaguar, Citroen, Peugoet, Skoda, Kia, Mazda, Lexus, Daewoo, Renault, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Honda, Hyundai, BMW, Toyota, Seat, Dodge, Jeep, Pontiac, Subaru and many more vehicle makes, European, US, Far East, etc. Some vehicle ECUs may support more/less features than others.

**PLEASE NOTE!** Any reports of hanging or freezing after quitting the app is due to a bug in the HTC Evo 4G and Galaxy Tab, this can be triggered by using the Pandora/Vlingo/Aldiko bluetooth enabled apps. Disabling Pandoras new bluetooth settings fixes the problem, but HTC/Samsung need to release a fix. Please contact their support and encourage them to fix, Thanks!

The pro version supports USB ELM adapters which are use 'Prolific' or 'FTDI' chips

* Update: A freeze/hang workaround has been found after a great amount of effort and is available in the full version in the General Preferences settings!

I've been using Torque for many years now, and there's really only one thing I dislike that really irritates me. Fairly regularly the app will reset itself and it will revert to the default display settings, which means you have to customize the display layout again. Apparently it's not due to updates or anything (since Torque was last updated in 2018) and it does this on different phones. REALLY ANNOYING.

Torque Lite used to work fine with my cheap, eBay OBDII reader. Any car, different phones. Clunky UI, but it worked. Just started the app after not using it for a few months, and got a splash screen about the app being "updated." Now, it will not "connect to the ECU." The app no longer connects via Bluetooth. Any car I've tried... VW, Ford, Mitsubishi. Useless.

It has glitches with connecting to newer phones but if you work around that it is excellent. Super quick access to error codes for all the vehicles I've ever tried it on which is quite the range in manufacturers and years! This app that goes with the device DOES require technical know-how! However it is easy enough to access everything through this app that the device and electronics of a vehicle are largely self-teaching.
