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!

Takes too long to set up gauges and even worse, it doesn't save them when I exit the program! However, it is known to be a good software and I do appreciate the features in the free version. Ok, I'm ammending this review to update that you must go to permissions on your android and allowing writing to files.

It mostly works. But it's also four years outdated and the interface is a holdover from the dawn of android. Very difficult to use this app, ten years out of date, on a modern phone. It produced some of the info I needed from my vehicle. It wants me to buy the pro version for the info I really need but I'll try to find an alternative that isn't older than the dinosaurs. Updated review: almost impossible to use with a modern phone, even exiting the app is difficult. Left files all over my phone.

works every time. still using 14yr old ebay bluetooth obd2 adapter. have used several different phones with every version of Android since 2010. the only issue i've ever had just came up with the latest Android 12 OS. had issue with app not saving my display layout when exiting the app. uninstalled and reinstalled to reactivate permissions, and manually added a .torque folder to sd card- that worked!!! reads DTCs fine and works to clear DTCs in every vehicle i've tried it on since 2010.
