Torque Android App Review & OBDII Bluetooth Adapter

It works with the 6.0, a member on here who goes by "amdriven2liv" is one of the first to use it, IIRC he also does the beta testing for Torque. You can either do a search on this forum, or go to the "Torque" forum.

Works great I love it. Still having an issue with my EOT gauge. It reads properly but is missing the 1 in front of the temp. IE: ECT 188 EOT 88. I checked with my modis and EOT is at 188 when this happens. Still trying to fix that. Other than that issue it great and well worth the 5.99 app price and 25.00 for the buletooth adapter.

The last I heard, DashCommand for iPhone don't support some of the key PID's for the 6.0, like EOT, FICMv, ICPv,ICP,IPR%,VGT%). To support the missing PID's, you also need to buy their expensive PLX hardware for add-on's.


Dale, the only app for iPhone that has complete coverage and more is DashBoss.

Go in an check the equation in the PID.

Enter this one if it is not already in there this way.

(((A*256)+B)/100)-40


I don't track where to find the adapters at. There is a thread in here somewhere that has a good adapter that has proven itself.

I use the PLX KIWI, which is $99.

As a scan tool, this APP has worked flawlessly. (I will use it tomorrow on a guy's truck in the morning.) Along with the Scangauge II. The Torque APP doesn't connect fast enough to catch a weak FICM that starts low reading and reaches 48v in 10-12 seconds. The Scangauge II will catch that reading.


I don't beta test for this APP, although it sure seems like it!!!! LOL

Here's mine installed using an old smart phone on the rear view mirror and Scantool.net OBDLink MX Bluetooth adapter (only one that goes to sleep.) I've got the phone wired with keyed power; in addition to the ODBLink, Torque puts the phone to sleep when power is removed and will stay in sleep on the battery for days at a time. When I get in and start it up the OBDLink and phone switch on and displays data within about 30 seconds.
