Widgets for Torque (OBD / Car)

Widgets for Torque (OBD / Car)


Get vehicle OBD engine information as a widget on your home screen!

This is an add-on for Torque Pro, the OBD2 car app for monitoring your vehicle engine management data. You can find Torque on the Android Market

It lets you display the various dials and widgets from the app on your android homescreen! Monitor all the standard OBD2 sensors as you can in the app such as coolant, RPM/Revs, Transmission temperature*, knock retard*, MPG, HP and Torque!

For example, you could have a trip fuel cost widget displayed on your homescreen, showing your total trips fuel cost (perfect for when your kids are using dads taxi!)

There is an on / off toggle widget that you can also add which will pause the homescreen widget updates and to control the startup of Torque itself. Turn the widget off, Torque will shutdown, turn the widget on and Torque will start up automatically.

This widget needs the Torque OBD app, and will automatically start Torque to run in the background as a service (the app has been optimised to be very power efficient). It will then automatically connect to your vehicle when you start a journey and start showing information!

Supports phones, tablets, and tablets running honeycomb

Please note: Using launchers like ADWLauncher/TouchWiz may result in slow updates of the widget, the developers of those launchers will need to fix their code so it can update the widget faster. Works fast with the default launcher that comes with Android


* = capability dependant on vehicle.

Recent changes:
This plugin is configured to automatically start Torque by default. There is an on/off OBD toggle widget to stop this behaviour! - simply add the 'OBD Toggle' widget!

* To turn the widget (and Torque) off if you dont want it starting automatically, use the 'OBD Toggle' widget which is also part of this app - simply add the toggle widget (it's just like a wifi toggle widget)

Changes:

* Fixes for themes not being seen on later android devices
* Bugfix for slow display updates in some instances

These widgets are close to perfect. I just don't like the lack of customization for the widgets. Like, the "trip time" is awesome, but it only counts/displays seconds. It should be smart enough to switch to minutes, and hours on a long trip. Like saying 5m 2s, instead of 300s. If more customization was added to allow for this, it would be perfect. (looks awesome on my NU3001 car head unit otherwise)

Please Don't Stop Development Ian, I hope you read these :) Thank you for the update! The widgets are now following the theme for me. Now that it is working perfectly, we need to introduce more features.. :D Need ability to customize the gauges like within Torque, . Can you make a Display Configuration for the widgets? Using Nova Launcher and Torque Widgets, I have been able to really make a really awesome layout. Cheers!!
