Get vehicle OBD engine information as a widget on your home screen!

This is an add-on for Torque Pro, the OBD2 car app for monitoring your vehicle engine management data. You can find Torque on the Android Market

It lets you display the various dials and widgets from the app on your android homescreen! Monitor all the standard OBD2 sensors as you can in the app such as coolant, RPM/Revs, Transmission temperature*, knock retard*, MPG, HP and Torque!

For example, you could have a trip fuel cost widget displayed on your homescreen, showing your total trips fuel cost (perfect for when your kids are using dads taxi!)

There is an on / off toggle widget that you can also add which will pause the homescreen widget updates and to control the startup of Torque itself. Turn the widget off, Torque will shutdown, turn the widget on and Torque will start up automatically.

This widget needs the Torque OBD app, and will automatically start Torque to run in the background as a service (the app has been optimised to be very power efficient). It will then automatically connect to your vehicle when you start a journey and start showing information!

Supports phones, tablets, and tablets running honeycomb

Please note: Using launchers like ADWLauncher/TouchWiz may result in slow updates of the widget, the developers of those launchers will need to fix their code so it can update the widget faster. Works fast with the default launcher that comes with Android

Recently changed in this version

This plugin is configured to automatically start Torque by default. There is an on/off OBD toggle widget to stop this behaviour! - simply add the 'OBD Toggle' widget!

* To turn the widget (and Torque) off if you dont want it starting automatically, use the 'OBD Toggle' widget which is also part of this app - simply add the toggle widget (it's just like a wifi toggle widget)

Changes:

* Fixes for themes not being seen on later android devices
* Bugfix for slow display updates in some instances

    Using Torque on a 7" tablet I use solely as a car tablet. The Torque app works great! However these widgets work only 35% of the time. They look great on my homescreen when they are working but not worth buying to only have them work occasionally. The switch widget is pointless and has no affect. I leave Torque running pretty much all the time. The widgets just randomly decide to work then decide

    Not sure if it's Android 4.4.4 or what have a play edition Moto G as soon as Widgets are placed they never update again, show whatever the data was when placed and once phone is restarted they say no data, no matter what happens in Torque app.

    If you want either bigger or smaller widgets download nova launcher.

    It would be better if there were decimal place settings

    what a shame. Why does the widget theme not change with the app? I will be looking elsewhere

    Its been a long time for any updates. Applied Theme in Torque does not work on Torque Widgets for all devices. No ability to modify a widget once its made (except for size depending on your launcher). No connection issues. Refresh rates are quick. Slows down boot since it starts up Torque but, but it is not intruding. Android is only getting more popular for car installations so keep it up Ian. I
