    torque

    I just recently aquired a Bluetooth obd2 adapter and downloaded torque pro for my tablet. I can say it works really well. I have scanned my car and probably 10 more coworkers cars. I was just curious at what other members use and how they compare to the torque app

    Well torque is an app you can download from the ply store. There is a free version and a pro version which I think was like 6 dollars or so. It turns your android phone or in my case I use my galaxy tablet because of the screen size into a code reader basically. You have to purchase a bluetooth adapted that plugs into any obd2 equipped car. It can read trouble codes, clear them once fixed and even show realtime data as the car is running. It can even show 0 to 60 times 1/4 mile times etc. There are lots of parameters that you can see. Its very useful for any diy type individuals who fix there own vehicles or freinds. There are several different adapters available on amazon ranging from 10 bucks to well over 100 dollars. My buddy purchased a 15 dollar one but couldnt get it to read any info. I bought on that cost 34 dollars pluss shipping and it paired right up and read info right away. As was stated do a google search and read up. I also have a actron hand held scanner that I bought a couple years back and the torque app will do everything that the dedicated scanner will do plus some. I was just wondering if anyone has used different software besides torque and what they thought of it. Jesse

    Re: torque

    I have the torque app for android and the blue tooth scanner .it is buy far the cheapest scan tool .
    Has some pretty cool features for gauge read outs and real time display .been using it on both my camaro and cts as well as many other friends cars .. Total cost for blue tooth scanner 14.00 dollars eBay

    As far as iPhone apps there are some very similar but not sure if the torque app is available
    Think the popular iPhone/iPad obd2 app is Lemar

    I do believe there is s I phone or pad version but I haven't researched that. Best bet is look into the apple app store and do a search for something along the lines of obd2 scan software. I would think there would be something similar to the torque app for android. Search and you shall find. If there is something available for you then the price of the software and a Bluetooth adapter just can't beat it. Plus even if your car has no issues it is just simply cool. As I originally posted I do have a actron dedicated scan tool that is a couple years old and really now the only reason I still use it at all is because I have the adapter cable that lets me hook up to the old type plug that my 2 pre 96 ford work trucks has. Sure beats the hell out of counting flasing lights on the dash for sure. Good luck Jesse

    ----------

    The Bluetooth adapter I used was BAFX product. I can't recall the model no but they have one on amazon for 24 dollars plus shipping. There are many version available from 10 dollars all the way to 100 +. I heard people using the cheapest ones with good results . I just picked an average one that was inexpensive but not the cheapest and out has world perfectly everytime. They only difference that I have read about is the communication speed between the adapter and whatever device your using to see the info. Jesse

    Re: torque

    I have the same set up and think it is great. Cost me $25 for the reader and $6 for the app.......work better and gives me far more info than my $200 OBDII reader.
