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.
