Default OBD II bluetooth torque app

Hey all,

I know this has been discussed a little , but the search is down so i thought i'd reach out to some of you who have used this.

i just got the elm327 bluetooth adapter and i have the free torque app on my samsung galaxy (att)

now i have everything up and running, i'm getting all sorts of readings.

However I am not getting boost reading and I know it should work.

any ideas why its not working?

do I need the paid version?

thanks again.

I'll let you know soon enough as I have the paid Torque app, just waiting for my ELM 327 (US, not chinese) to show up next week.

I just bought the Kiwi from PLX Devices and am running Torque. I am reading boost, however it gives you two options either by MAP or MAF. When it is set to read MAF I think I get max boost of around 11.7PSI and when it's reading MAP I think I get a max PSI of around 16...I'm not sure which is correct but the 16 PSI definately looks better LOL

MAF would be the correct one as our cars use a MAF (Mass Air Flow) sensor.
MAP is Manifold Absolute Pressure, I don't recall which turbo cars use MAP though.

let me know.

there is a measurement of pressure at the intake manifold but that would not be an accurate measurement.

i did read that it would be better to purchase the program.

my friends worked GTO measures negative #'s with the free version cause he's naturally aspirated but with a cam.

if he has a measurement then i'm hoping its not a customized PID setting.

i do not want to customize because if you get it wrong, you can damage the ECU. This statement is confirmed via the warning on torque app.

Hi all,

I have this app and setup working - you can see videos in another thread.
I can read boost just fine.

If memory serves me right, the free version of the app hasn't been updated in ages and is MUCH older than the paid version.

Just buy the paid and try - you can get a refund within 15 mins of the purchase.

Cheers,
J

hey thanks, so I believe why i am not getting a boost reading is because I really need the paid version.

can't wait to get this up and going.

one other question, will the reading now be accurate on a tuned car?

That, I really cannot comment on- no idea. Unless someone with a proper gauge can do a side by side comparison using Torque, it is hard to say.

Not sure if any one who has Torque has bothered to try this, but one of the other cool features of Torque is the Track Recorder.
I took a 6 min vid earlier this evening (without the OBDII adapter).

Speed, G meters and HP were being calculated by the phone's sensors (accelerometer, GPS and calculation of the vehicle weight are required).

I didn't do the sensor calibration as I was already on the road and calibrating while already moving doesn't work out so well lol.
