obd2 apps

Smart phone apps? Cant help ya. Dont believe in smartphones.
HOWEVER, I do have this

Same device.

It is really nice. I sometimes prefer this over the shops OTC Genisys. It does NOT do function testing though.

yeah I use the ELM 327 Mini bluetooth obd reader and the Torque Pro for Android

there's not a whole lot that is available to monitor from these motors but it does give you some info that you need, as well as the ability to read and clear CEL codes

looking at the elm327, whats the disk that comes with it?

Zues Marine 07-07-2014 01:34 PM

PC software or maybe a digital manual, not sure.. i tossed that thing when it came, all works fine

ok. hey, for 10 bucks I think i'll get it, I spend more than that in gas to get to o'rielly's for a check engine light

FWIW, I got this one and currently use Torque Lite:

This is for Android devices.

you spent waay too much^

I spent about $12 on my adapter and also use Torque Pro. Very happy with it.

what kind of readout does it give you? do you use the free version of torque or the paid one? paid supposedly has more features. does it actually read fuel trims or are our cars too "old" and "simple" for that?

i use the paid version of torque and a 12 dollar module as well but havent really gotten into the extra features yet. i use it on a ton of different cars at my friends shop tho, its much quicker than breaking out the full scanner for quick diagnostics and code checks.
