    Torque Pro Android app

    Somewhere on this board I saw this mentioned a wee while ago and downloaded the app onto my phone. It needed an OBDII Bluetooth adaptor so I ordered one from Amazon.
    http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Anyway the adaptor arrived this morning and I've been outside having a play, it all works perfectly so I recorded a track and it's below, you can have any meter you like shown on the display as long as your car supplies the data so I just threw a few on for demo purposes. I didn't have the camera pointing straight out of the window as I had it turned slightly towards me so I could see it so the recording feels a bit odd when you watch it (I want to keep turning my head to the right..)

    Total coincidence that a black X Type comes towards me on the final corner before my street.

    I had better read the instructions.

    I borrowed one of the Mongoose OBD readers from work this weekend. It's absolutely amazing, why can't someone clone it. It's like talking to the whole car not just the engine.

    To get the video on the Torque app you're looking for the Track Recorder plug-in, no extra charge, I use it showing G sensors, throttle position, speed, revs and the overlaid map making a pretty snazzy dashcam in full HD.

    so am I right in thinking this also brings up diagnostics, as in if you have an error, this brings up the codes and have the ability to wipe the codes?
    if so il be purchasing this!!
