Default Torque App

This app is pretty neat if you have not heard of it. It gives you the ability to view/log real time data from the OBDII port of your car/truck. It can also use the GPS and Accelerometer in your android phone/tablet, so you can view G-forces in a turn or even have a Inclinometer in the jeep. I have not tried to read any codes yet but the app has the ability to do that also. The app costs $5 and Bluetooth OBDII adapters range from $15 to $100 depending on which brand you buy.
This is the adapter I bought CLICK

I mainly purchased this for my truck ('97 F250 Diesel, which is not fully OBDII compliant) just as a cheap way to get a few gauges but it also works well in my car ('12 Focus). For $25 its not a bad setup.

Default Re: Torque App

I second this.

I've been using Torque (w/the additional plugins) for years now. Great app for the money and very configurable. The guy is also pretty good at keeping the app updated. It has a good amount of the scanning ability that my $700+ diagnostic software has.

I use one of the cheap $12 Vgate BT adapters off ebay and it works great. Some of the adapters are hit or miss with the software but figured it was worth the risk for the $ spent.
