I've been using the Torque app for ~18months now. Very nice. The utility of the app is kinda limited for those that have the high-end cluster. I think the most interesting gauge I set up for the Ram was EGT.

actually i think it is really valuable because it frees up my EVIC for other things. I set up on my LG2 two different screens:

- one screen has Cat temp, EGT, Boost
- got the plugin that allows you to record using camera with gauge overlay
- changed to miles, mpg, Ft/lb, F degrees

would like to find fuel rail pressure PID

would like to understand a few more gauges and what else i should be looking at...

I'm assuming the Torque app for iPhone/iPad is the same, has the same features as discussed here. But my assumptions usually blow up in my face.

Is anyone using Torque with an Apple product?

I don't know what a ODB2 is. I do know what a OBD2 is though. Hukt hon foniks wurkt foor me. LOL. Just given you shiit man.

Where do ya find the EGT temp plugin for torque?

How are you displaying your mounting your cell phone so you can see the info?

I use the stock 8.4 display. I got the lockpick air v2 which allows me to stream content from my phone to the stock screen....now if it was only touchscreen capable when streaming from the phone!

$30 well spent, I hope.

I just purchased the Torque Pro app for Android from the google play store.

I'm waiting on the bluetooth connector I ordered from Amazon.

I have an old google Nexus One Android phone, so I figured I'd put it to use. I'm looking forward to seeing the data while towing.

I plan to get the Track Recorder plugin later on as well.

I'm looking for the DPF soot % full PID. If anyone knows where I might find that, please post it here.

Thanks

Also, for we NA EcoDiesel owners, I think a lot of us have been missing out on the DPF % capacity PID that our Antipodean friends have been using to track their DPF Failgen issues. Thanks goes to Steve1307.

This Torque PID works well on NA EcoDiesels.

PID: 018B
Long Name: DPF Capacity
Short Name: DPF %
Minimum value: 0
Maximum value: 100
Scale Factor: 1x
Unit Type: %
Equation: (C*100)/255

A few notes: apparently the reading does *not* drop during a regen, because the system stops measuring the pressure diff while the regen is in process. Instead, what will happen is the value will instantaneously change the moment the regen is complete. For example, mine dropped from 100% to 9.4% in one second after not budging from 100% during the 12.5 minutes of the regen (regen mode as determined by the characteristic CAT/EGR/DPF temp excursion). Also, for those of you with ScanGauges, you can probably convert this to an XGauge code if you want.

I'm experimenting to see if some of the other PIDs will give engine hours, turbo actual boost, etc.
I've tried this PID for DPF %, but not sure if what I see is true, or this PID won't work on the RAM.

That pid works on my '14. You can get regen status, average time between regens and average distance between regens from that pid too.

I checked to make sure I had it entered correctly, but still a no go. Just shows 100%. I drove on the highway for about 25 miles and monitored the temps and it didn't look like a re-gen was happening.

Is that PID that is working for you exactly as above?

Thanks for any help.

I don't use torque but that looks like the right equation/setup. Maybe later calibrations changed the functionality of that pid. I bought mine when they first came out and it has never been flashed.

Do you get reasonable values for the rest of the signals in that pid?

Thanks Burro.
I hooked it up again today and it showed 100%. This time about 20 seconds after I got on the highway at speed, the Cat temp went up to 1,100 and stayed up there for about 10 miles then dropped down to match the EGT. The DPF went to 9%, so it is working the way it should.
Happy I am.

Thanks, loaded my first custom PID from post 12 and just read DPF%100 for short trip.

Later in the evening had to travel an hour both ways with hwy speed limits of 65 mph.

On way to meeting, non hwy route, %DPF100
EGT1 was working and had alert to flash above 950
Cat B1S1 was being monitored also.

Was able to see EGT1 get above 900 a few times.

On the way home was able to cruise at higher speeds of 65 mph posted speed limit.

After about 1/2 hr cruising Torque app starts flashing , dials are showing all the way to right, then DPF takes a big jump to 0.

and stayed at 0 for the rest of the ride home.

Guess it is working.

;-)

between APP and obdll reader, best under 10 bucks spent for the money.

now i see the free video app ad on.....have it loaded need to go for a ride...

;-)
