Descriptions


See what your car is doing in realtime, get OBD fault codes, car performance, sensor data and more!

Torque is a vehicle / car performance / diagnostics tool and scanner that uses an OBD II Bluetooth adapter to connect to your OBD2 engine management / ECU

Layout your own dashboard with the widgets / gauges you want!

It can use the GPS to provide tracker logs with OBD engine logging so you can see what you were doing at any point in time

It can also show and reset a DTC / CEL / fault code like a scantool. Helps you fix your car and helps keep repair costs down!

Torque also features:

* Dyno / Dynomometer and Horsepower/HP & Torque
* Can read Transmission Temperatures (vehicle dependant)
* 0-60 speed timings - more accurate than just using plain old GPS - see how fast your car is (or truck )
* CO2 emissions readout
* Customisable dashboard & profiles
* Video your journey using the Track Recorder plugin with onscreen OBDII data overlay - a black box for your car/truck!
* Automatically send GPS tagged tweets directly to twitter (for example if you are going on a road trip)
* Massive fault code database for lookup of fault codes from different manufacturers
* Theme support (choose from different themes to change the look of your dashboard)
* Send logging information to web or email CSV/KML for analysis via excel / openoffice reader
* Heads up display / HUD mode for night time driving
* Compass (GPS Based) that won't suffer magnetic interference
* GPS Speedometer/Tracking and realtime web upload capability - see what you were doing and your engine, at a point in time
* Turbo boost feature for vehicles that support MAP and MAF sensors (VW & Golf / Audi / Seat etc supported)
* Alarms and warnings (for example if your coolant temperature goes over 120C whilst driving) with voice/speech overlay
* Car dock support
* Graph data
* MPG
* Able to share screenshots to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Email, etc
* AIDL API for third party apps, A simple Telnet interface for developers to talk to the adapter, and an OBD scanner.
* Works on tablet devices like the Motorola Xoom, Dell Streak, Samsung Galaxy Tab and Nook

Works on any vehicle that uses the OBD 2 standard (most vehicles built after 2000, but can work for vehicles as far back as 1996) if in doubt check with your manufacturer first or look for 'OBD2' on written on a big white label in your engine bay

Works on vehicles made by Ford, VW, GM/Vauxhall/Opel, Chrysler, Mercedes, Volkswagen, Audi, Jaguar, Citroen, Peugoet, Skoda, Kia, Mazda, Lexus, Subaru, Renault, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Honda, Hyundai, BMW, Toyota, Seat, Dodge, Jeep, Pontiac and many more vehicle makes, European, US, Far East, etc. Some vehicle ECUs may support more/less features than others

The app needs a Bluetooth OBD2 adapter to work. The adapter is small and plugs into the diagnostics socket on the car which gives your phone access. You can find a list of adapters on: http://torque-bhp.com/wiki/Bluetooth_Adapters (Garmin EcoRoute HD adapters not supported)

If you buy one of the cheap china OBD2 ELM327 bluetooth adapters from ebay / amazon, then make sure you have a good returns policy with the seller

Some of the best reliable OBD2 / OBD adapters are the Scantool.net adapter, the OBDKey, and PLX Devices, OBDLink, Bluetooth, ELM327 and other adapters are supported - search on google for them

More features added every release - there are forums at http://torque-bhp.com/forums/ - if you want something added then let me know and I'll try to add it if it is possible! Vehicle ECUs vary in the amount of sensors supported

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

    The only problem I have with the app is the scaling on my s7. It would be perfect if two medium-sized displays would fit side-by-side without overlapping or hanging into the next page of displays. Also, the small displays should be scaled in such a way that three of them would be the exact height of two medium displays. So if medium displays is 6 units tall, the small would be 4 units tall. Then two medium would 12 units tall and 3 smalls would also be 12. These things would make for a huge improvement in appearance in my opinion. This may be different for tablets,other phones or Android based head units so please let me know if this is the case. I'll be switching over to running torque on an Android head unit pretty much 100% of my time driving so let me know. Thanks. Full Review

    It doesn't matter if you're a backyard mechanic or a professional, this app is indispensable. Paired with the $25 dongle, this app outperforms a $300 tool, making it accessible to everyone. This is the best tool I've got in my toolbox, bar none. Living in Japan, it would be amazing if this could get JOBD support... I'd definitely pay to unlock it, hell, at this point I'd be happy handing over $50-$100 to be able to read my car here like I could in the states! Full Review

    Really great app with TONS of sensor readings. I guess my only beef is gauges on inactive pages don't register min/max unless the page is active. I'm being picky there. Paired with the track recorder, this is a must have for car guys. Fault checking is pretty great too. Pulls up links to your codes automatically. Full Review

    Very disappointed. I have used the lite version with no problems on my 2007 BMW. When I updated to the pro version I had major problems. The software reset my dashboard date and time and the trip counter. Next time I drove the car it reported a battery discharge fault. I had to revert to the lite version to remove this phantom error. I dare not use this software again in case it changes something more critical. Full Review

    I should of got this sooner. Makes troubleshooting super easy. I can even logged my driving trips 2 review whats my car is doing. gps track it. 2 much 2 describe. It not Honda specific, but it still provide good data on the car. Save times from taking aparts uneccesary component. Provide proof of defects to get the warranty, pic speak louder than words. U can also review or send logs to them. 4get Autozone scanner. This work ridiculously better. Full Review

    Awesome app, very simple to set up what gauges and information you want. Horsepower gauge seems off a little bit compared to real Dyno numbers but that's to be expected. Only beef I have is minor, every time I try to access themes for different gauge styles, it doesn't work, says my internet connection is not working, with WiFi or 4g. Only app I've spent money on, would definitely recommend. Full Review

    Love the app and worth the money... would like to see abs added with auto brake bleed and ecu relearn like idle air controll relearn ect. Buttons to make processes easier for people that hate doing it the hard way. But love the app.. Full Review

    Fantastic app. It does everything I need of it and more. Can't count how many times it's saved me from having to take my car to the dealer, just to find out a wire was loose somewhere. The app even plays nice with the crappy cheap adapters I use with no problems. Full Review

    I gotta say that this app helped me save quite a bundle thus far. I had an old 97' F-150, and an 03' Windstar that were giving me hell lately, so I plugged in the OBDII sensor and bam, just like that it told me what was wrong and where it was wrong (with a little research though). If you're into cars, this is a must have. If you love having information piped to you at all times, this is also a must have. Best Car App ever! Full Review

    I have been using the pro version for a long time now. Every so often I have trouble connecting to my Bluetooth reader. To get the app and the reader to connect again I have to repair the reader to the phone. I know itis not an issue with the reader because I also use another code reading app as well. Full Review

    Great app, well worth the purchase. My tire pressure sensor went off today and i cant figure out how to read the code to see which one. Scanning fault codes returns no errors. Any ideas on how to check this? Full Review

    App tells me there aren't any errors on my BMW E60, when clearly there are. Another App picked up the errors using the same dongle. I guess for $7 you can see a pretty digital guages of your RPMs Full Review

    I was almost going to purchase a high dollar scanner to monitor the same PID's while driving that this thing can do. I was able to get it to work on a '96 powerstroke and monitor ICP, IPR, MAP, Injector pulse width, trans temp for the E4OD and lots of other actual useful info! Its helped a ton to diagnosis my problem I had. I wish I got it sooner!! Full Review

    I had the Lite version before buying the Pro and I had no issues at all with it. The Pro though, makes my fuel guage drop all the way to empty and my fuel alarm dings, then it jumps back up to normal. There is no specific action by me, but once I unplugged it.. it stopped. It really sucks cuz I love this app and all of its features. Using the BAFX 34t5 w/ 2003 Ram 1500 Off Road Edition with the 5.7 Hemi. Update: still causing my fuel gauge to act erratically. Any fix for this?! Also, app works beautifully on our 2017 Jetta TSI. Full Review

    Where do you go to access the data logs? I want to see what my car was doing when I've finally pulled over, instead of trying to watch it while driving... Fun fact, it's dangerous to not pay attention to the road while driving Full Review

    When using a usb adaptor I get an infinite loop message pop-up saying "No devices paired, please pair one in your phone's Bluetooth settings." it only starts this loop once I click on the settings button. Everything still works fine via my usb adaptor but the continuous error pop ups are enough to drive me insane. It seems like your app is always expecting Bluetooth even though I have told it to use usb. If you would like any more details or for me to try something, let me know. Full Review

    The trip info resets when you shut the app off or take your phone out of your car, so unless you want to know how much fuel you burn on the way to the store it's not much use for fuel tracking Full Review

    So I took the ZS 2.0 TD out for a blast to test the reader/app. Bearing in mind its the 115 with SDI injectors, decat, boost increase (physical boost gauge showing 21Psi)...... Why was my maximum Bhp 91.2, and my max torque 181 and boost only showing 17.5?? Am I doing something wrong? Is it the reader/app? And the car is fine btw. It pulls exactly like you would expect a car that's producing around 130-140bhp with all the mods. Oh, and regarding the max bhp, I took the car right up to the redline with foot nailed to the floor in 1st, 2nd, 3rd and still the app showed a max of 91.2?? Full Review
