OMBD2 Torque App

Alright guys,

Wondering if any of you have any experiance using a OMBD2 bluetooth module with TORQUE app?? I bought one and downloaded the app a few weeks ago. I'm quite impressed with it to be honest.

I bought it mainly to find out what boost i'm running without spending hundreds on gauges. It turns out my boost tops out at 1.3 Bar which i thought was a bit high but i'm not sure how accurate the readings are?????

Cheers
Kev

Hi Kev,
I've used the same app myself. Useful thing to have...I bought it just to check for any warning codes. A very cheap way to do so.

My last car was a M5 and I bought a OBD reader which cost me about 150 quid (non-standard connection on the '00 E39 M5), but it did save me a 2k repair bill because I was able to get some info and tell the mechanic his diagnosis was wrong! Though that one cost me 150 quid, this time around it cost me about 15 quid for the obd-bluetooth adapter on ebay and 3 euro or something for the app! Very cost effective.

As regards reliability of the info...the data is read from the car's obd2 data bus, so if it is reported correctly there I guess it should be right. I know the power readings etc that it gives are pure guesswork based on the weight of the car etc, but the boost should be as reported by the car's systems. I'm no expert though so take everything I say with a pinch of dumb
