    plus an Iphone if you dont own one and an app download then the slight possibility of corrupted bluetooth data.

    if they were that good dealers would use them instead of paying many thousands for their pro models.

    oh, and mine was £28.

    Description
    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

    Yr right, Techno100, its a lot smaller. I might have to get one as I could leave it plugged in but switched off. not sure how much power the old one draws if you leave in in.

    I would read the thread as it only works on 6002 gas only and I have the only controller in the WORLD
    I am the guinea pig tester for the designer Mirko who is making me a markII model that works fully.

    This sounds like a great toy, does it affect warranty?

    It is easy to fit? I have a 2013 130 Fiat
