Hopefully things should start working. I wish we could enter meta-data for make- and model- specific codes, with time intervals and with scaling factors like you provided today for the tachometer. The hardware is not expensive on Amazon, etc. I can successfully pair my Droid with the module and successfully connects. I was a little disappointed as to what it reads on my Sprinter compared to when I plugged into the Holden Caprice. I can't really answer your questions, but.
I have never seen torque spec's for the oil pressure switch. I only got the free version to get the oil temp. A couple little wires or traces to feed a voltmeter and you're good to go. Also the gear one has no output. I only know this because I work with a bunch of mega nerds some of the smartest, techno-savvy people on the planet.
It can frequently be found at a good University's library. Thanks again for the great app Ian! I just did this yesterday. I know the Scangauge that Way Motor Works sells can read oil pressure, and I believe he programs then himself. Just guessing at this point, but wanted to let you know that it does work for some of us at least. Guess I'll have to get more familiar with its tools. All works ok on WinMo device with other software. Like Apple and the iTunes store , you get the app from a centralized, supposedly trusted source.
So please don't take me wrong, but I'm not silly as you reply leads to understanding, I know how my car works! I've been through 103 of them and so far have 43 or so that work for our 5th Gens. I feel like this is more of a problem with the droid bluetooth stack, but oftentimes after torque connects, if the app is restarted, it will not reconnect until the obdii reader has been unpaired and repaired. The first 4 characters 0009 in our example are the multiplier. Maybe like a user alterable function or something. I know there are at least a few out there using this Android app. Though, it might be worth it in the long run if it saves my engine. Hopefully there will be an update after I have managed to test it in the next few days that solves that, then I can move onto adding more features.
Voltage level would have been just as good to monitor a system even with a mechanical voltage regulator right from the beginning. With the possible exception of the earliest vehicle charging systems, there never was any operator feedback or adjustment required for a regulated generator based upon the dash ammeter readings. Who we are: We try to be a helpful discussion-driven community while maintaining high-quality discourse and topical content. Torque doesn't require anything more than the hardware already present on your Android phone to function. After sending the log I left Torque running on my way to meet my carpool.
If voltage is controlled amps will be controlled. Everything on it looks awesome, and is just what I have been looking for. Also the gear one has no output. This app really has potential in the auto community to do very well. I haven't figured out how to set the gauges up so they don't overlap. Can you explain what the lights on the device mean? A couple little wires or traces to feed a voltmeter and you're good to go. Curious if anyone has figured out how to get it to read the oil pressure? The manufacturers provide what is mandated.
Just make sure you get Bluetooth, not wifi for Android. Eg we have no emissions guff on ours. No oil temp reading tho. It logs all my trips with speed and obd data. Seems like Techstream can do this??? One complaint that I have about Torque's interface is that it hides the toggle for initiating logging under a pop-up menu, which makes quickly starting a log difficult.
And you proceed the same as with the multiply and divide to the value. Yes ive been using it for months now and it is fine. It seems to retrieve data as the device is loaded, but after that it does not poll for data. I can't find the gear display, what parameter are you reading that from?. Real-time information Firing up Torque Pro brings the user to a home screen where the app's five main functions Realtime Information, Check Fault Codes, View Map, Test Results, and Graphing can be selected and accessed.
It can frequently be found at a good University's library. The data is all screwy, rpms way low, % throttle like 95 all the time, engine temp like 400. I just use the default settings for the guages. The 3rd party schematic doesn't have any signal name indexing unlike the T1N service manual , so the information is tedious to find. I got zero documentation with it. Does anyone have the pid for it? I just purchased the bluetooth sensor and once it arrives I will try out the rest and should be purchasing it instead of running the ad supported app.
That is usually enough info to monitor your battery system. Motor is a black top sr but Ka specs should work seeing as its the stock replacement. Some people like to have the information because they don't like the way Mother Mercedes shifts the transmission so they use a Performance Monitor Unit to alter the programmed shift patterns to improve operation and fuel economy. There is a learning curve though, this program is more advanced and more difficult to configure than Torque. My Droid rebooted along the way. I and my '16 are happy.
