Default car OBD II to bluetooth to HTC incredible!

OK, this is crazy, just saw this video: YouTube - OBD 2 Readings on my HTC incredible phone.

Has anyone else done this? What OBD 2 app did you use? Where is the best place to get an OBD to bluetooth dongle?

I am so excited about this. If I can get this running on my Incredible it will be ANOTHER reason all my itself its worth having this phone!

Thanks for any and all info you have about this!

There is an app in the market called torque that does OBD II. There is a free version and a paid for $1.99. On ebay seach for OBD II Bluetooth dongle. I searched the other day and there were some for around $30. Should work with any android with bluetooth.

Amusing as in "thats a joke and waste of money" or ????

I am not being sarcastic, just don't wanna blow $40 on a BT dongle if its not going to work right. youtube vids look awful convincing! I have a jeep and I just put a 4.7 stroker in it, so it would be great to see how its running from the ecm side of things.

One of the apps that is currently available is OBDroid. Until i get my scanner and get to try it out I'm not sure this is the same app as in the video. I am an official beta tester for OBDroid and waiting on my bluetooth scanner to arrive. I bought this one, but any ELM327 compatible scanner will do. Dealextreme ships from china so it takes a while.

DealExtreme: $53.99 ELM327 Bluetooth OBD-II Wireless Transceiver Dongle

I will bookmark this post and report back when I get it running.

I messaged the youtube video owner, he said he is using the app Torque: Torque (Ad Supported) - Android app on AppBrain

It looks awesome! Before I just go out and blow $45.99 shipped on this:
ELM327 BLUETOOTH OBDII OBD2 SCANNER VAG-COM CAN ELM 327 [Blue ELM327] - $45.99 : Car Parts Lights EDIT, I JUST REALIZED THIS IS FROM CHINA.... WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU KNOW.... THERE ARE CHEAPER ONES ON EBAY FROM CHINA AS WELL!

I am wondering if there is a super cheap cable that goes to micro usb? I can't find out yet.

Anyone found/use a cable?

Thanks!

OBD I would require vehichle specific program. There was no standard in OBD I, GM used differnt programming than Ford which was differnt than Toyota and so on. Also vehicle connectors were differnt fo every vehichle. I have like 15 connectors for my Snap on scanner and differnt software for each manufacture. Sold on cartriges divided into domestic and import. At an average cost of $1500 per cartrige set to update. I have about 5k tied up in my scanner over the years.

Now for around $40 you can get a dongle and a program on your phone that will work amazes me as well. Although this setup will only alow generic OBD II functionality. Factory or dedicated scan tools will have far more capabilities. Generic functionality is all the average person realy needs.

That's website for torque the app in the video there is a forum as well there for all the info you need.... app is in Android market just search for torque or obd
There is a paid version about 3 bucks which goes towards development and a free version that is ad supported.

Dev says that a dyno section will be released very soon in the next update..
This app can also see why your check engine light is on and gives link to a website that details the problem and app can clear check engine light

this app works great on my sprint htc hero and i got the bluetooth dongle off ebay for 30 bucks from hong kong including shipping
have had this app for a month or so.. had one hiccup last night and sent the dev a comm debug and he emailed me within the hour and said he would have a fix for my issue asap... well an hour later it was fixed!!!

This app is amazing.. cant wait to see what else will be added and included in future updates!!!

Hello guys,
I have Torque working with the bluetooth OBDII scanner that I bought from Ebay.
It Works Great !!!
Reads the data from my Audi, cleans the error messages and resets failure lights on.
The reader was very cheap, 16€ and in a week time it was home.

I highly recommend for the Car fans that like to have things tunned.

for anyone that cares, so far these are the best prices with free shipping, not sure what the big deal is on the difference, I believe they are the same chipset under the hood:

$26.03 - OBDII Bluetooth Car Diagnostic Cable - Black + Blue + Orange (DC 12V) - OBD/OBD2 Car Diag. Tools

$29.10 - OBDII Bluetooth Car Diagnostic Cable - Black + Blue (DC 12V) - OBD/OBD2 Car Diag. Tools

Yeah, that's the one I have, it works fine with our phones (as well as my old Archos tablet). I have it set up on my laptop as well, and run some more advanced software and it works perfectly on that as well.

On my Inc, I use Torque btw.

I just switched from Eris to Dinc, and found this thread.

I've been using Torque and the cheap eBay module for months on several cars, with no problem. Total cost less than $35, and functionality has been 100%, with solid Bluetooth to the Eris and now to the Dinc. That setup paid for itself on one code, in fact.

I bought the $13 "Y" splitter on Amazon, and surgically cut off one of its legs to make a one-foot extension (ensure isolation of every conductor in the cable). That enables more convenient placement of the rather bulky Bluetooth module, to which I affixed a metal spring clip that attaches to edges of panels, etc. out of the way of my legs.

Overall, very nice and VERY useful.

All you'd see is a wire with some shrink tube on it. Nothing dramatic. But inside, I cut each wire to a different length, and pulled the insulation over the conductor.

Can someone confirm the e-bay bluetooth module reads the obd on Ford cars? On the help file in the Torque app, it says that the cheap e-bay module does not read the J1850 protocol

Yes, I did this a while ago. Torque is an awesome app, it allows you to do much more then just read codes. I got my bluetooth scanner off Ebay... One like this...

Default elm 327 does not work

i got the elm 327 scanner I mentioned and linked to above and it does not work with either of my vehicles...

I have 2 fords and these clone scanners are known to be highly unreliable with fords.

on the torque wiki for adapters they mention this adapter:
PLX Kiwi Bluetooth - Connect your Droid mobile device to your car's OBD2 OBDII Port

has anyone used this with success...i wonder if it would be any better than the cheap elm 327 i have?

it's the next cheapest adapter and it's gonna cost around $100 after shipping
