    OBD Fusion will report gear and TC state. That is just about the limit of my knowledge with the AutoMagic side of things.

    Is that something I download onto my laptop and use the tactrix?

    I need you to speak full dumbass...

    Download this "OBD Fusion" on the play store and buy an adapter on Amazon to plug into my obd port?

    I drive with techstream. OBD fusion is too slow, sometimes 2 to 3 sec slow to display.
    I have condensed techstream parameters to 20-25 and you can see a better picture. Very fast and you can get more data points/sec.
    However, I still don't know if VF has and angle or % for accelerator and throttle, cause TS does not have accelerator degree..

    Do you have Techstream installed? I've never used the OVT logger or OBD Fusion, but I know you can do it in Techstream. You can get the TC lock status too, along with pretty much anything else you would like to log and more.....

    Download link is in my signature.

    Here is a video of installation. (ignore the part about copying files, you will use the keygen included in the download.)
    https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/how-to-log-data-using-techstream.543307/#post-17601385

    Here is how to run the software and set up for logging.

    Yes.

    Monitor PID status of the shift status for current gear. PID accelerator position for accelerator position.

    Lots of good stuff you can monitor in real time.

    My dashboard looks like this:

    Any chance you could share a link to a reliable bluetooth adapter?

    Awesome! I'll give this a go. The phone app thing looks sweet though. Looks more newbie friendly.

    @Mooseditty17 has TS installed and flashed 04B04. So, that may be a good route for him?

    I have this Bluetooth OBD adapter and it works great with OBD Fusion and Torque.

    It's pretty cool, but like vlady said earlier, there is a delay so you aren't getting instant information. For that you would need techstream.

    :rolleyes:

    OBD speeds are ancient to start with. You're losing nothing with wireless.

    I have the carista bluetooth with obd fusion. You will also want to buy the Toyota PID pack.

    Maybe mine is just slow. With techstream hooked up, it is way faster.

    @lapoltba go step by step instructions are exactly what I needed to use techstream to log. I may end up trying some of those Bluetooth deals too. Anything's better than holding up a finger trying to remember what gear I'm in. Greatly appreciate the help gentlemen!

    I like TS. It's clunky, but it logs pretty fast and works well. There is a little bit of a learning curve, but follow the pictures in that one post and you can get it set up pretty easily. There are tons of PIDs to choose from. My suggestion is to create a custom list for just the things you are interested in pertaining to shift tuning. Have another specifically for throttle tuning... etc.

    I suppose the question is how fast do you need to see things when driving? Esp gear or TC state.

    Driving, not too fast. I think with him trying to dial in shift points etc, he may want more speed. For daily driving though, it's perfect. There's times on mine I've already passed the next gear before it changes. Lol
