Since the car is manufactured in 2011, it will be OBD II compliant. Does your car have a 16 pin connector?

This Torque PRO app works on all - Android mobiles, laptops. You just need a Bluetooth connection for the reader to transmit data. If you buy a cable one also it will work. There is a CD provided which gives out guidelines for installation for various platforms.

Slightly off topic on this thread as i couldn't find apt one -

There is an app for tyre health tips and location finders by CEAT. Just read this news today - News Link Here. Nothing great but has got few novice tips and articles worth reading it once.

No issue if the ODD reader is plugged in and left that way but do remember to use the car regularly.

You have two options:

1) plug it and leave the plastic cover open.

2) plug in only when needed.

Had a ELM327 to play with the Ford Fiesta Classic 1.4 tdci and with fun2drive, got the following readings.

The various legs of the journeys from top left to right:

Top row: (1) Hosur to Thoppur toll gate; (2),(3) Thoppur ghat descend.

Bottom row:(1) BETL from EC 1 to Silk board @ 80 kmph, (2) is from Silk board to Forum mall in evening traffic.

Comments awaited!

Guys,

Any idea which port the 2005 Safari 3.0 Dicor has? My guess is that it has OBD-I.. Or is it OBD-II?

I tried the fun2drive app with an ELM527 OBD reader but it didn't work. This setup works just fine with my Torque Pro app though. Would it be a problem havin both Torque and fun2Drive installed on the same mobile phone?

Drive on,
Shibu

Don't think so. For the peace of mind, just kill one app and try another one. By "kill" I mean terminate form running apps list.

The way the Bluetooth profile used by ELM317 is, it is "visible" to only one app or one OS running instance at a time. I have tried and tested this a few times. For example, if your Torque Pro is already connected to the ELM327, then for fun2drive or any other app, the ELM327 is not even visible. You can't connect to it again with another app. This may explain why you could not get fun2drive to work. If you quit Torque Pro completely, and then open fun2drive, it might work.

It is not a problem to use both apps together in the sense that it will not cause any harm. Just that the first app that connects to ELM327 will work fine and the second one will not.

Hello !

I use an app called "Torque" and it is working fine.
https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...g.prowl.torque

Tried Fun2Drive, but am not able to add more than one car profiles to this. Also after first configurations, I wanted to make some changes in the settings, but not ale to find that button ! Is it something to do with my phone ?
