Torque Pro app

Anyone running the android torque app? On several Powerstroke forums it's been talked about. Pro is the paid version I bought and waiting for the Bluetooth obd2 adapter. But it looks really neat. I just hope that with all the parameters it monitors that it won't end up being a distraction when towing or just driving. But overall I think being able to see every sensor the pcm controls will be a positive addition to maintaining my 7.3.

I've got it for my 02 yukon xl. Works pretty well. There are a lot of parameters for the gas motor so I can only imagine what there is for a diesel. The only issue I have had is sometime it takes a little while for the adapter and phone to sync. I'm real big into getting the best mpgs I can so this can affect my avg mpg on the screen. This can be fixed though with just turning the key to run and then start the car after it syncs. It seems to be a cost effective approach to viewing all of your parameters as opposed to the scan gauge.

Use this app in my aurora gold with 8.1 chevy motor...works well...but like dcarver said it takes a few minutes to sync to phone...no biggie. I do keep my phone plugged in and charging as I go down the road. Attached is a screen shot of some of the stuff I monitor..not hooked up to rv on this screen shot.

I have it and love it. I also have a 7.3 PowerStroke. It won't monitor EVERYTHING, because the 7.3 PCM isn't as advanced as others, but it monitors quite a bit. Of course, you can just use the PIDs you want, and ignore the ones you don't.

I use it in my 07 LBZ. Works great with my Samsung tablet. It has helped me pick up 2mpg just by watching engine load and throttle position. My only complaint is I cannot seem to watch the transmissions perameters.

Well good....I'm anxious to try it. But what does pid stand for. I understand there's parameters for different sensors.

Ok, I have an OBDII adapter (2 of em in fact) that is supposed to connect to the phone or laptop via BT,, Alas, they pair, but do not connect
(Android phone)

Anyone know one that actually works, and is cheap?

I'll let you know when I get mine. I got it off Amazon for $29. It's a BAFX something....

Most get the BAFX
Amazon.com: BAFX Products - Bluetooth OBD2 scan tool - For check engine light & diagnostics - Android ONLY: Automotive

I did, worked very first time. Now, because they pair, that means they are connecting. Do you mean not connecting to the PCM?

PID is parameter identification.

Yes that's what I ordered. I'm looking for a tablet mount now. I have a 10 inch HP TouchPad laying around I'll use.

PID stands for plug in documentation.
