Boost gauges are universal. Any brand would work.
Each app on Android has to specifically get their app cleared for Android Auto in order for it to show up, and that's no easy task. I wouldn't expect it to show on android auto anytime soon.actually I have the Torque app with the OBDII dongle, but can't find a way to show it on the Android auto screen
Any bluetooth obd dongle's you'd recommend?For those not interested in getting gauges, the Torque app is a great addition, it has many very useful features, you can monitor and log, as well as view and clear CEL's! I suggest that and a good OBD Dongle to go with it.
I have the torque app and a boost gauge...So, has anyone actually installed a physical boost gauge yet? I'm asking because Torque was giving me some weird boost readings yesterday. I'm assuming the application is wrong due to having to fudge the vehicle profile. Tork has told us that this car runs at 12 psi, and I have no reason to disbelieve them - they're experts at what they do and I'm reasonably certain that they wouldn't mess up something so simple - I trust them.
Now, what am I on about? Torque Pro was showing me readings way over 12psi. Like I was regularly hitting 15.5 under WOT and once hit 17.5. I just don't think that this is right and I'd like to hear from someone running a physical gauge and compare notes.
When I created a profile, it did not give me the option to chose a pre-made profile. So I input the information myself... I do have the paid version, not sure if that makes a difference of not.Interesting. I haven't done a darned thing to my car aside from some aesthetic mods and I'm hitting 17.5 every now and again.
Which vehicle model did you choose for your car profile in Torque?
Anytime dudeAh, yeah, sorry... I was thinking for the setting for Advanced Hyundai EX, which is a plugin for Torque. With that in mind though and as I'm using a PID that isn't Hyundai specific, it seems like it has to be right.
Thanks for helping me walk through that in my head.
The gauges show up on the infotainment display?I have been wanting a workable boost gauge since day 1, and this is the best solution I have found so far without adding a physical gauge.
OBDLink LX + OBD2AA (need XDA Labs app) + Android phone + open up developer settings in AA. Basically have a read here. https://forum.xda-developers.com/general/paid-software/app-obd2-plugin-android-auto-torque-t3657805
I'm still playing around with it and see what gauges I actually want (in addition to boost), playing with the looks and also the app just gets updated so often I'm playing with it a lot.
This is what it looks like on android auto when it's running, obviously the values are wrong becuase I've just used 'preview' mode on the phone while it's disconnected.
It's quite responsive and mostly looks like it's meant to be there, perfect solution to needing a boost gauge IMO! definitely the cheapest at $2 USD for OBD2AA
