OBDII and Android Torque App

Post  reddog on Mon 03 Feb 2014, 9:40 pm

I grabbed a cheap OBDII bluetooth plug off ebay and downloaded the Torque Lite App for my Google Nexus 5 Android phone. So far I have found it works fine in the wifes VW Jetta Mk6 and my Isuzu DMax. Shows Boost, speed km per litre, voltage, rpm etc. Check out this Youtube vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vQSsUPrGLHs



Not bad for $5

It'd be such a worthwhile tool on the Bandit for Water temp, Voltage etc.

Hassle being that Suzuki doesn't use the OBDII standard limiting the devices that can read the disgnostics to either the manufactures own test equipment ($1,000 plus extra for updates) or the Healtech OBD device (US$230 - ish).

I don't remember seeing any others, especially at the price of the Healtech OBD, but would be glad to be proven wrong.

I just looked at Healtech's site and I couldn't find the OBD, they may have discontinued it, although US retailers are still listing it.
