Is anybody using Torque for monitoring/gauges?

I was wondering if anyone was using the Torque app on an android device to monitor on a 7.3?

I have it on a galaxy s3 and I am having issues displaying pids.

I have, but stopped using it to monitor my engine vitals. The day after I got the app then installed the bluetooth obd 2 adapter, my truck died on me on the highway. It wouldn't start right away, so I took out the obd 2 adapter waited a few minutes and then it started right up and haven't had any problems since...it's been at least 4 months. I only use it to run codes on my vehicles now. Coincidence? Not sure, but figured I'd be safe rather than sorry.....

I tried using Torque and the ELM 327 bluetooth adapter as well and my truck shutdown twice while sitting in the driveway. I disconnected it and have not plugged it into my PSD since!

I read somewhere that those adapters don't play nice with PSDs, but don't remember where. Not sure if a USB or better BT adapter will play nice or not.

I'm pretty sure there's a forum for guys using that app. I'm sure you could find some answers there, probably learn a few trick too.

I looked around the torque forums a little bit. It seems like you need to be a programmer to understand what they are talking about.
