Torque App?

Saw someone mentioned the Torque app for iPhone... Anyone use it? What you think? And what Bluetooth adapter do you use with it?

It's Android specific last I checked. And it supposedly works pretty well. I'd try to grab one of those low profile Bluetooth OBD II readers so you can leave it plugged in without hitting your leg.

There is an iPhone version but it's proprietary and expensive if I recall.

I searched torque on the App Store and the first result was Engine Link.. It's a $5.99 app. Maybe torque changed its name...?

So, I guess my new question is... Anyone have any experience with Engine Link?

I am aware of blue tooth I just assumed a direct connection would be more reliable and faster.

Bluetooth is a serial connection just like USB. I've used torque for years, on 5-6 different phones and tablets, with an elm327 blue tooth adapter.

Heck, even the Chrysler StarScan they use/used for years was wifi.

Found Engine Link HD- OBDII Engine Monitoring and Diagnosis when I did a search for "torque" on the app store. It requires an ELM 327 OBDII WiFi adapter that plugs into the OBDII connector. I wish I could copy the images, but it looks like it does real-time diags, reads and clears codes. It only costs $6.99.

Sorry TKCARP, I just saw your post. I didn't mean to steal your thunder.

I use the one for android and love it... cleared the codes out of my buddies vw's, and keep it plugged into the jeep the rest of the time. I only have the free version but most of the features work, and hasn't failed me yet.

I just ordered the OTC 9450 OBDII Scan Tool, ABS and SRS Code Reader for $99 plus $16 shipping. I am hoping to see if it will clear my airbag light, or at least be able to diagnose it further. I wish the DBRIII weren't so expensive. I was reading a thread on here where one of the users, from Montana, has a DBRIII and found another for sale for $200. Man, I'd LOVE to find one for $200.
