    I have a 2013 Prius c Two.

    What is the best Android app for monitoring all the hybrid / engine functions?

    I plan on getting an OBD-Bluetooth adaptor.

    I have both. I think Torque beats the crap out of the SG after you add the Prius PIDs. You can log data, show more than 4 gauges at a time, bigger screen, etc. However, it is nice to have something that you can plug in and forget.

    Torque is your only option, as far as I know. There are other apps that will show you the basics, but Torque is the only one I know of that you can add custom PIDs to so you can monitor the hybrid stuff.

    $15 bucks is hard to beat... especially when you get the same information as the scanguage.

    Last time I checked the PIDs weren't all that accurate for the C. Is there a new / verified list? I am primarily concerned with instantaneous MPG, engine temp, and battery level / charge status.

    Instant MPG and engine temp are perfect without adding PIDs. From what I've read battery level is pretty close if not perfect and same with charge status.
