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:

* Added 'Overlays' app support
* Minor update to fix a couple of small bugs

    Themes don't work and haven't got a response via email from the developer...

    I have been using Torque Widgets for years and they are (were) great. However, Theme broke with KitKat and there is no mention of it being worked on. Totally screwing up my Dash Installation.

    How do I make the widget match my torque theme?

    These widgets tripled my boot time on a good day. I e-mailed the developer with no response....again. I wish Google would offer refunds longer than 15 minutes after purchase.

    Force closes torque, but only when enabled. Developer does not respond to emails.

    Would get five stars if there were more display config such as min and max like in full app. Also battery suffers a great deal.

    It works, on my chinese tablet, but the problem is widgets are way too big, I wish I could choose small ones, there are two sizes only and the small size takes half the screen, the big one won't fit, it's a nice app just need to put smaller sizes.
