See what your car is doing!! Torque is a vehicle / car performance / diagnostics tool that uses Bluetooth ELM/OBD/PLX adapters to connect to your OBD2 engine management / ECU

Has anyone used this? I tried connecting just sitting in my car, couldn't find a bluetooth signal. So.. I need one of these? http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_no...apters&x=0&y=0

Thanks

I found this, with the reviews it seems to work.

I just tried it last week. Bought the elm327 bluetooth off ebay for about $25 bucks and connect to my galaxy vibrant s android. Once you paired it the bluetooth code for elm327 is 6789.

It works great. good luck

Great! Thanks, exactly what I was looking for. When installed does it get in the way?

If you already have a scanner then what else does this do?

If you have a bluetooth adapter, this program Torque can display a TON of information. CEL codes, Acceleration, Rev, Throttle, Speed, Psi, coolant temp, mpg, 0-60, 1/4mile 1/8 mile, HP, Acceleration G's, Logs of everything. Seems amazing to use once, don't know if it would come in handy daily, though.

I wonder how accurate the performance readings are.

BRINGING UP THIS POST ....

I'm highly interested in buying this app. It promises a lot, but I need to know if someone here has used it and how pleased they are. I bought the Google Nexus tablet and want to use it to scan some codes. I also bought the OBD2 cable from ECS for my Jetta about a month ago but haven't used it yet. Some one told me the bluetooth adapter is not necessary, a USB OTG adapter can be used and it's way faster than bluetooth.

1. Where can I find the diagnostic cable for the BMW?
2. Will it actually work with BMW?
3. What features does the app provide that you can share with the community?

Just look here to read all about it: http://torque-bhp.com/forums/.
I'm using Torque for a couple of years now, and yes, it works like a charm on all OBDII-vehicles.

This is awesome. You should see some of the the set ups that people are doing in there vehicles. this is deff some thing that I am intrested in. It would be awsome to be able to get realtime data with out having to have a cable and laptop sitting in the passenger seat all the time.
