Plug in for the torque app
This is the track recorder plug in for the torque app. If you have an android, you need this app.

Stupid OBD 1 :frown:

And I should point out, the plug in is free.

That's a cool find Dan, I have the Droidx. What's the interface cost?

Danthurs 04-07-2012 09:26 PM

Torque is $5. I used the KIWI interface, that was $99, well worth the price. The cheep china adapters are not worth the price of shipping.

How so not? Connectivity issues? Data transmission speeds? What is wrong with them?

What he said ^^^

My first one was the cheep China adapter. It connected, sometimes, most of the time not. When it did connect, there was a very big lag on the information, like 1 or 2 seconds. The KIWI was 4X as much, but it connects every time, there is still a small lag, I think that's just a bluetooth thing, but the lag is under a second, perhaps .25 of a second. The China adapters are also big blocks, and my OBD is under the steering wheel, so it's right by my feet, I was bumping it all the time. The KIWI has a 6 foot cord and you can put it just about where ever you want.

Even with a 6ft cord, I bump my HPT cord all the time. Wish it came with a 90degree connector like my adaptor.

Either way, I'm gonna look into this!!!

Dude, a 90* plug would rock. I have that on my aeroforce. I found taking the cord over the column and then over to the passenger side helps keep it out of the way. I love this app. I can't believe how powerful it is. Even scans KR now. And the author keeps adding more features. Check out the free version.
