    I'm wondering since this uses an app to blue tooth to a phone or tablet, can the same go for one of the new app radios?

    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?
