    Exactly what needs to be done to get the app to read out AFR? Id imagine the need for a wideband unless the Tacoma already uses wideband sensors?

    Torque is written for the Android operating system. If the APP radio is running Android, it should work.

    I've had my bluetooth adapter for 3 months, no problems yet. Did yours just up and stop working suddenly?

    A question I have tried searching for and still haven't found an answer, for you torque app users:
    How do you record and save the readings? I've been keeping track of things like mpg's, fuel trims, afr's, etc but can't figure out how to get the app to save copies of these readings after each trip.

    I just ordered a Bluetooth module but use Windows Phone 8 not Android, does anyone have experience with either the "Dash" app or "AutoGaugeX" both look interesting but neither is as mature as Torque yet

    I am using the Latest Torque version 1.6.46? or something with a skin and the default gauges.

    Got the OBDLink MX Bluetooth adapter with the latest firmware too.

    I need to figure out the rest of the stuff. Like I have no fuel gauge on here. Or the real time MPG stuff. Also wanted the Voltage meter, Tranny temp, and similar .

    Custom PID's?

    You can add all that stuff by picking a gauge type and then picking which value for it. I pick the all info one and gives me a readout of everything all on one screen.

    I watched the video. Thanks though. Funny enough, I had already selected a few gauges, and they were not customizable. That is what prompted the question.

    Post some of your screen shots! I'm using a nice theme already, but am curious to see what others have as clusters..

    I was thinking of a custom mount for my cell phone also. Since my phone has wireless charging, I was thinking of something right above the steering column. Similar to the gauge pod. Also, I would mount the wireless charger station to it and possibly one of those fancy infomercial green cellphone pad mounts. The green one.


    That way, I get in the truck, drop it behind the steering column and go. It would be in the same spot as the gauges, so it would not be a distraction. Even would work for Day driving.
