Torque software and OBD2 port

Hi,

has anyone out there tried the Torque software along with an OBD2 bluetooth adaptor to display various gauges on their mobile phone?

Yes, I've used the Android Torque app quite a few times in my SLK and especially in my Audi A6. I use an ELM327 OBD-2 adapter for bluetooth connectivity. The combination has always worked well, and the Torque app has had an enormous return on investment for me.

Most recently I was able to see (via Torque) that my intermittent hot-start problem in the SLK was caused by a marginal crankshaft position sensor (P0335). Since the check-engine light resets after 3 successful starts, the only way to know what was happening without trundling over to the local car parts store or the stealership was to have my own code reader. I replaced the part myself; happy ending.
