Anyone who has tested these products on older Maruti cars please advice.

Thanks for this update Devraj. I have seen my mechanic use the Launch X.... ( Not sure of the model), to scan and clear errors and take an error report from the same device. This was the specific reason why I wanted to check if this bluetooth device DBScar from the same company should also work on my car. Would love to test it, if it is possible before I can buy it. If it works, it can really solve many of our mates out here who have older swifts before 2009 like mine, which never supports any of these devices. Fingers crossed until tested and proven.

I use Bosch Fun2drive app on android.
This is a good app, and works.
However, now I am looking for something which can do data logging.
For example, every time temperature crosses 95 degrees, it should log the temp every 5 seconds or so which I can see on a graph, and see what is the max temp achieved.

May be you can look at Torque PRO that is available in the Google Play Store for Rs 250/-.

Does data logging too.

Torque is not very good with safari. So I first wanna try out a free app, and then maybe buy the paid version.
Torque free does not have data logging.

Hmm. Drive down to Hyderabad and try the paid version on my mobile and then decide. There must be someone in your city who has the paid version.

Torque is not good enough. It does not show all sensors like fun2drive. So torque is out. I have to see some other app which works with safari

Delphi ECU like safari works good with OBD Car Doctor. However need to check on Loggging part.

Loggers should be background task which doesnt consume power.

Like for GPS logging i used to use GPSloggerLite app. Worked awesome.

I was testing apps so I can update my listing with latest relevant info folks are looking for when buying, Thanks Anurag for the pointer, i tried multiple apps which have tracking in it.

Here is the best app i felt based on features, logging details, analysis, etc.

TestDrive - OBDII Data Logger

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...utonoma.athena

Here are some snapshots I created using ECU Simulator I have. It did crash couple of times but then it was pretty stable even with all PIDs getting logged.

Need to test how it does in long runs...

A friend has got a i20 Kappa 1.2 (2012) is it compatible with the OBD II Bluetooth adapter?

Thank you Devrajman Sir for this App.

I have just downloaded it from Play Store. Will see how it works.

The adapter and the software looks promising but paying 6K is a bit steep and IMO needs some proving too.

The website, data written is all sugary to attract customers etc but I'll prefer to wait and watch before handing over 6K.
