Clicking the link shows me the changelog. Where can I see the PIDs?
At the bottom, there are "worksheet" tabs (like Excel). The 2nd one is labeled "US" and the 3rd is labeled "Metric", if I recall correctly.
Edit: Yes, US and Metric tabs at the bottom on the left side
I see it now. Thanx!
So, if I understand this correctly. Torque already has default PIDs for most regular ICE cars and they should work out of the box. But for the PiP, these must be imported. How is this done?
P.S.: I don't have ODB BT module or Torque app yet. I'm just gathering information.
I find my scangauage (SG) is inadequate for my desire to show more than 4 meters at a time, and to monitor motor and inverter coolant temps, so I am going to buy an HTC EVO (or something similar) android phone just for Torque
I also like the idea of connecting through BT rather than drape an ethernet cable across the car the way it is now. I know my wife will appreciate the upgrade.
I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Note. I also have a front glass mount.
It should do the job.
Be aware that when you save as a CSV file, some of the values may be screwed up. Like 71E2 will appear as 7+1E2 because the value was saved as an exponent or something like that. This happened even when I didn't open/resave the document with Excel. So I opened it with Notepad and edited all the values before saving the file to my MicroSd card.
I like the compactness of a Scangauge. But I like the logging and flexibility of Torque.
I still haven't had a chance to hunt for more PIDs, but I will soon.
I need to add that this is caused by Excel's built-in number format:
Text or number converted to unintended number format in Excel
I've tried all the 3 methods and it still auto-format after saved as CSV. Anyone has better solution other than manual edit by Notepad?
I will soon be getting the demo PiP for a week. Are the PIDs in the spreadsheet for PiP the same as for the demo unit PiP?
You mean the same demo unit you had a few weeks ago, again? Or do you mean a production PiP demo?
Yes, the same demo unit. The one, which has the charge port by the driver's door. I'm gonna have it for another week
I have received the OBD Bluetooth unit and connected it to the current car, which is Citroen Xsara Picasso. It works
I've had the free version of Torque so far, so I'm gonna buy the whole version and install the video recording plug-in.
I'll be receiving the Demo PiP on the 26.4.2012. Which PIDs to read the demo unit's traction battery SOC should I use?
Tracksyde reported row #82 works with the production model. #99 didn't work for him. You can try both.
Vincent created another thread for the ZVW35 Prototype here in this forum.
Thanx! I didn't know it's called that way, hence I didn't even open the thread.
Trackside, do you use the video recording plug-in? I've placed some gauges there but I can't make the Google maps background go away permanently. If I remove it, I want it removed, but if I go out and come back to recording, it's there again. Is this a 'feature'?
I havent tried it. Is the video recorded by your Android device? or does Torque + the plug-in create a video overlay of the gauges (and I guess Google Maps) that you can merge with video recorded with another source?
I'll give it a try though..
Oh, I'm glad I found this thread.
I already have the OBDII-Bluetooth adapter and awaiting for an Android tablet.
How long does the TorqueScan PID scanning take? I think I let it run for about 15 minutes and it still wasn't done. But the responses didn't seem to change much in the last 10 minutes or so.
