When you plug this ELM327 in your vehicles diagnostic port the power light will always be on, even when the vehicle is off, thats just the way it works. I ended up putting a on / off switch in it cause I plan on leaving it in the FJ all the time. Wasn't too difficult to do, just needed to put the switch between pin 16 battery power. Post some pictures.
This device averages 20 PIDs / sec as per the torque app info states & I don't have faster communications enabled.
Torque (Diag App) allows me to read codes and display values real time but would not let me clear any codes. Huge fail but ultimately not the app I had my eye on.
CAR GAUGE allows me to conduct self diagnostic tests, read and clear codes.
If you're having issues, and one piece of software allows two way communication but the other does not- it's not the hardware. Maybe give another app a go.
I don't know how long this dongle will last, but for $12 it does everything Torque asks of it, and Torque warns that many clones of the original product [ of which this is one] malfunction or transmit wrong values over time.
Two minor annoyance are it has no off-on switch so the device is on all the time once installed, even with the key out of the car. The LED face the wrong direction when mounted on my cars, its either flat against a wall or dashboard so you can't see it.
Note, Torque free does not work as cleanly as Torque Pro. Bluetooth pairing did not work reliably [ I had to manual find the device sometimes], if it did work it took a long time to complete and some dials didn't work as smoothly or quickly and may give the wrong impression of how well Torque Pro really works. With Pro, I just pop the Vgate dongle into the OBDII and turn the app on, and it locks on quickly and reliably, on both my cars.
Cons: The gauges do not update fast enough to get a good real-time information suite. Which is fine, it just means that you won't be hooking an android tablet up in your car as a substitute for your gauge cluster. However, dock your phone on the dash and it would make a good addition with temp gauges or fuel economy.
The only real con that I have seen is that when I plug this device into my 00 Celica (GTS) it turns on the air bag light. I am not sure if that really means the air bag is disengaged, but I don't want to find out. So I am just using it on the Subaru (no known issues) or when I need to clear faults in the Celica.
That sentence is the first, because that is what I bought it for. Will I still wind up buying that $100 Scantool MX adapter later? Most likely. Doesn't matter, that will be a "for diagnostics only", and this one for daily use with the Torque program. It works just fine with everything I've tried so far. With that said, after days of digging and a bit of experimentation, here is what the Vortec folks with access to an Android smartphone need to do:
- Buy this or similar adapter
- Install the free Elm Basic terminal app (not Elm 327, it blows)
- Plug in adapter to OBD connector, standard bluetooth sync to phone, password is 1234
- Start the vehicle and let it warm up to normal operating temperature
- Open the Elm Basic terminal, connect to adapter, then type the following and click "Send" after each line:
- The final response should look like "62 13 01 AA BB". AA and BB are what you are after, and both are in hex. Perfect is both at zero, but due to slop in the valve train and sensor accuracy, that's not going to happen.
- If the AA value ranges from 00 to 7F, the distributor is too far counter clockwise to were the computer wants it to be. If it's FF down to 80, then it's too far clockwise.
- After each distributor adjustment rev the engine up and hold it for a second. Most say at least 1k rpm, but some say 99's need 2k.
- Send just the 22130101 command again to refresh. If the value is -exactly- the same then you didn't rev it up high enough/long enough.
- Once AA is either 00 or FF, then you need to get BB down to as close to zero as you [easily] can.
I've not fully checked this yet, but I think the formula is going to be very close to (((A*256)+B)-32767)/100*2.4.
And all of this posted because I spent many hours trying to find it out, with many many posts everywhere asking about it. Google, get 'er done.
