    Question OBDII scanner BT Android apps

    Which app do you use for your OBDII scanner on your Android phone?

    And has anyone upgraded to the paid version of Torque Pro? Is it worthwhile?

    I use Forscan for Mazda and TorquePro for Chevy. I didn't have the need for Pro yet, but what a heck...

    Why different apps for different cars? How do they compare?

    Forscan is for Fords and Mazdas only. However, extremely deep digging. The laptop app is quite on par with OEM software.
    I haven't found anything better for GM yet, besides Tech2 that I also have. But on the road I use Scangauge2, and sometimes Torque Pro.

    So you think Forscan is better than TorqueLite? The interface sure looks a lot slicker.
    Don't see Scangauge in the store.

    Sorry, Scangauge is the device. Old fashioned, showing four parameters of your choice, with many different functions.
    Forscan can read many more times PIDs then Torque. I guess, it's individual's choice what to use. To me, I take information ahead of its presentation.

    eBay or AliExpress, can't remember, it was a while ago. They're all made in China for GM.
