Torque Droid App to find EOT

Hey everyone,

I have a Droid 2 and installed the Torque app (for fun mostly) to monitor some engine parameters. I am able to monitor my Coolant temps (which I'm realizing my thermostat may be stuck open and doesn't allow my truck to warm up fully on some drives), but am wondering about my oil temps. I found the PID's online and EOT is 1310. I do not know the equation though to get the readout in degrees fahrenheit. Does anybody know the calculation? I used the conversion from celsius to fahrenheit, but I don't think the original raw data is degrees celsius. As of now my readings have been about 55 (without an equation; just the raw data from the PID) and about 133 when I input the celsius to fahrenheit equation.

Hopefully someone has gone down this road, but my internet searches haven't found anything.

Thanks,
Logan

You didn't need a formula to find out the temp with the PID. You need to contact the App developer with the PID code so he can add it in a update for the app.

Read this link, especially post #3.
HTC Droid Incredible - Car Instruments

The iPhone has an app called DashCommand that does the same thing, but until they get all the PID's into the software I'll have to wait.

I saw that post through my searches. I'll contact the developer and see if he can do it, but I know the app has a field where you can manage your own PID's as long as you have the PID number (and ability to input necessary equation depending in what info is spit out in order to achieve desired results).

I used the following as references:

there are a couple of great iphone apps that you can use as a set of gauges. You need a wifi transmitter that plugs into your obd2 port. App is called dash command or something like that. The app will data log for you and you can check out eot and coolant temps as well.
I just bought an egt gauge so I am going to wait a while to buy new toys for the truck.

When I went thru the DashCommand forums, the Moderator told a guy that it doesn't have support for EOT. In order to get the support you need to spend more money for a sensor module.

EOT, TFT possible?

Transmitters are on eBay. Search wifi obd2

I believe you can data log eot. It is on the m
List of things you can monitor

i used a bluetooth obd2 connector. I head they aren't very reliable and I've had mine cut out a couple of times, but I didn't expect perfection for the 10 or 20 bux i paid.

I just started thinking. I imagine the coolant and oil temp thermistors are the same... so if i used the PIDs which gave me voltage for coolant then maybe I could figure out the equation somehow and then apply that equation to the oil PID which reads voltage.

It looks like trying to figure this out will take some time.
