Torque Lite (OBD2 & Car)
by: Ian Hawkins • 30K
Torque is an incredibly comprehensive tool for tracking all of your vehicle's OBD engine data in real time, and a thoroughly economic alternative to forking out for expensive diagnostic machines.
The app allows you to connect with your car's ECU, using an ELM or OBD adapter plugged into your car (the app suggest suitable adapters). Quick and easy to set up, Torque offers an mind-boggling array of customization options for you to set up your very own dashboard on your Android. As well as tracking engine performance, you get a quick view of everything from the rev count and fuel gauge, to the speedometer, as well as run full diagnostics on your car to check for any fault codes.
The app is compatible with a huge array of vehicle makes and models, though features vary depending on your car's ECU. A dependable, easy to use to and well worth investing in the Pro version.
Torque allows you to track a mind-boggling amount of real-time data, which will help you track your car's performance, spot any failures and ultimately save you lots of cash - without having to buy an expensive diagnostics machine.
The app is compatible with most makes and models of car, and provides you with fully customizable dashboards, alerts when you need to take action, emission and temperature readings and full statistical and graphical analysis.
The app runs relatively smoothly, is easy to navigate (providing you know how to use an OBD/ELM diagnostic adapter) and including social sharing features.
The apps features are limited to the compatibility with your vehicle's on-board ECU and some users with HTC and Galaxy devices have reported some crashing issues.

**PLEASE NOTE!** Any reports of hanging or freezing after quitting the app is due to a bug in the HTC Evo 4G and Galaxy Tab, this can be triggered by using the Pandora/Vlingo/Aldiko bluetooth enabled apps. Disabling Pandoras new bluetooth settings fixes the problem, but HTC/Samsung need to release a fix. Please contact their support and encourage them to fix, Thanks!
