Torque app (real time diagnostics)
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.prowl.torque&hl=en

See what your car is doing in realtime, get OBD fault codes, car performance, sensor data and more!

Torque is a vehicle / car performance / diagnostics tool and scanner that uses an OBD II Bluetooth adapter to connect to your OBD2 engine management / ECU

Layout your own dashboard with the widgets / gauges you want!

It can use the GPS to provide tracker logs with OBD engine logging so you can see what you were doing at any point in time

It can also show and reset a DTC / CEL / fault code like a scantool. Helps you fix your car and helps keep repair costs down!

Torque also features:

* Dyno / Dynomometer and Horsepower/HP & Torque
* Can read Transmission Temperatures (vehicle dependant)
* 0-60 speed timings - more accurate than just using plain old GPS - see how fast your car is (or truck )
* CO2 emissions readout
* Customisable dashboard & profiles
* Video your journey using the Track Recorder plugin with onscreen OBDII data overlay - a black box for your car/truck!
* Automatically send GPS tagged tweets directly to twitter (for example if you are going on a road trip)
* Massive fault code database for lookup of fault codes from different manufacturers
* Theme support (choose from different themes to change the look of your dashboard)
* Send logging information to web or email CSV/KML for analysis via excel / openoffice reader
* Heads up display / HUD mode for night time driving
* Compass (GPS Based) that won't suffer magnetic interference
* GPS Speedometer/Tracking and realtime web upload capability - see what you were doing and your engine, at a point in time
* Turbo boost feature for vehicles that support MAP and MAF sensors (VW & Golf / Audi / Seat etc supported)
* Alarms and warnings (for example if your coolant temperature goes over 120C whilst driving) with voice/speech overlay
* Car dock support
* Graph data
* MPG
* Able to share screenshots to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Email, etc
* AIDL API for third party apps, A simple Telnet interface for developers to talk to the adapter, and an OBD scanner.
* Works on tablet devices like the Motorola Xoom, Dell Streak, Samsung Galaxy Tab and Nook

Works on any vehicle that uses the OBD 2 standard (most vehicles built after 2000, but can work for vehicles as far back as 1996) if in doubt check with your manufacturer first or look for 'OBD2' on written on a big white label in your engine bay

I can confirm this unit DOES work with the above app
go ahead and drop $5~ for the full app (the PRO version) the free version doesn't have nearly the capabilities of the full version
A vaper without a multimeter is like a mechanic without a wrench

I bought this exact one from here a while ago to use with torque.
One *pro* tip:
check to make sure if your obd2 connector stays powered up when ignition is off and car locked.
It'll be great if it doesnt, and shuts down...mine stays powered and the adapter stays powered and the battery will eventually go flat due to the passive drain. I also didnt like the idea of someone connecting to my locked car in a parking lot...
So the idea is great, but having to unplug the obd2 adapter and plug it back in soon became a chore. When summer comes I'll go add a switch or something instead, or change the wiring to a switched positive.
My car uses kwp2000 (iirc) and this reads it ok, but seems to be one of the last protocols it tries, so takes about a minute to start producing data....the ELM chips in this adapter is a cloned version, which reports an incorrect version number for the firmware loaded, but still works ok

I've used this type of adapter with torque for a while, so useful, lets you analyse any fault codes before going to the garage and see if it's something simple like a sensor you can just change yourself.

I had some intermittent problems with my car and it was so useful... I could google the codes and read various discussions, turned out my car was prone to a lot of electrical issues after a certain age and I decided to change cars rather than keep spending to try and repair what was essentially a design fault which would recur again.

Highly recommend one for the toolbox!
I know you are, you said you are, so what am I

can you tell me which version of the firmware it reports as? my application requires v1.5 specifically as 2.1 doesnt support a specific command my car needs before the software i use will work
