Torque Pro walkthrough video.

Mon Sep 17, 2018 11:23 am

Hey all. I created a walkthrough video on how to utilize torque pro with vehicles (specifically the Volt, Spark, and Bolt EVs). It's far from perfect, but if you're unsure how to do it, or are getting hung up, hopefully it will help. In addition to your Android device, the obd bluetooth adapter is ~$10 and the Torque Pro App is $5.

EDIT: I guess a link would help...

My memory is absolutely horrendous. If I were to have to reinstall today, I'm sure I'd have a hard time myself. Easiest way to locate the .Torque fodrder (at least for me) is to use the FILE EXPLORER or like app that comes default on your android device and use the search function (it required me to use the menu button on my phone, to show the search function).

Sorry if this doesn't help. I'm not sure if there is a company that can provide a professional level of assistance, if you REALLY want the app and are willing to pay for the assistance.

No.

Good luck!

No problem, I'm glad it helped you. My contribution is miniscule compared to the folks that worked to find all of those PIDs and calculations. I enjoy the benefits of it everyday.

Thank you for the video. BTW this will NOT work with Torque Lite - it will not give you access to the folder level. Spend the $4.95, it’s worth it.

Since I use an iPhone I had to purchase a used Android for this purpose. Got a non activated phone through the Smart Talk website for $20.

Android devices can be had pretty darn cheap new or used. Not only does it function as a gauge display (which would probably be much more expensive as a stand alone device), it can also make phone calls :)

Also good to have a back up phone.

No interest in buying an android device for this one limited use case.

Then don't.

Personally (my experience) I got a really, really cheap android phone exactly for this "one limited use case". It cost me much less than the OBD reader itself. That is all that it is used for.

And no, I don't think that Torque Pro is available on iOS.

Too bad. If someone designs something that works for the Bolt (or possibly future GM EV), it will likely work with the Spark. In my configuration, the PID for battery capacity works fine for the Spark, but doesn't read right for my Bolt. Good luck.
