Hi folks,

I've just downloaded Torque Pro and ordered a Bluetooth adapter. I don't have a specific task in mind, I'm sure sure it'll come in handy sooner or later for something! Looking forward to plugging in and having a play.

I've done a very quick forum search and there are little bits of info spattered across various threads. As things like Bluetooth/serial comms can be a bit fiddly I think it would be a good idea to have a dedicated thread that we can post all our own individual findings, problems encountered, tips for individual devices etc.

For those of you who dont know about Torque Pro, it's a phone app for reading engine data, fault codes, etc.

I see it also supports a Nissan Consult adapter which could be very handy for us X Trailers!

Mods - can we please make this a sticky?

An excellent little tool mate - I got one a few months ago (the "dongle" is left permanently plugged in)!

As well as being able to check/remove error codes it also supplies loads of live data (estimated HP, estimated torque, acceleration, MPG, speed, incline, and a shed-load of other stuff that's probably really useful :)

I also used Torque Pro via bluetooth quite a bit a year ago to diagnose some CAT/Lambda sensor issues. It's an interesting bit of kit - thankfully it's never been put to use since. Used it to clear codes on a few other cars though.

It's painless to set up - if you're tech savvy enough turn on the phone/tab/device bluetooth you'll be able to use it :biggrin:

To be honest, I have only played around with Torque Pro a few times, maybe 4 times on my XT and twice on a friends Mercedes CLS.

To the best of my knowledge even across the different dCi years, different protocols are used which support different modes. To the best of my knowledge, Modes 1 2 7 & 9 are supported on my XT. Mode 3 supports error codes and even though it runs 'no errors' I don't think it's supported.

On the QR20DE & QR25DE, this is supported.

If you look at one of the pics, you'll see that an ECU query returns Mode 6 not supported.

Mode 6 offers things like: Fuel Evap, Catalyst, O2 sensor, O2 sensor heater, EGR, etc where applicable to that particular engine.

I posted some details in a thread by CHRISM on 'fault codes without a reader' details Protocols, modes etc.

It would be great if other users could post screen shots along with error codes found and cleared. This could be a great resource thread.

This is what the programme looks like on my Samsung Galaxy Note;-

Home screen =

Realtime data screen 1 =

"Boy racer" screen =
Image

Anoter real time data screen =

Currently no error codes so I haven't put that screen up (it's blank) but when there are any I can check the code and, if required, clear them. I can also re-set the engine management light.

A natty bit of kit :)
