I just picked upa new Samsung Galaxy S4 (after coming from an iPhone) and I downloaded the Torque app. I have it linked via Bluetooth to my VT but I guess I need an OBD2 adapter. I'm not too well versed in this kind of stuff and extremely new to Android. Any recommendations on a good adapter?

I just picked up a Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet for torque an was just looking through the threads for what pope have used? Interfuse is one of the manufacturers people have listed, althoughnothers have mentioned just using cheap obdii bt adapte from ebay with good results.

How do you like your S4?

S4 is awesome but after having an iPhone since 2009 it's like learning a new language lol. Swipey keyboard is pretty cool.

As for an adapter I'm not looking to spend a fortune, just interested in seeing some real time numbers.

Make sure you also download the Hyundai plugin. They just added our engine in there. You can get some more PIDs from it.

Credit where credit is due, you jerk <3

Srsly though, Torque Pro + Hyundai Adv. is pretty excellent and I would happily recommend it to anyone. However, I'd like to figure out the correct protocol setting so that I can disable the auto-detection each time the app connects to the ECU. Anyone have any advice?

I think since my phone is new and I just downloaded the app it must be already in there. When I checked vehicle settings after connecting to Bluetooth it already had 1.6L in there. Said the kilograms but I don't remember that and can't convert in my head on the fly lol

Answer to my own question:

The correct protocol for communicating with our ECU is as follows: ISO 15765-4 CAN (11 bit, 500k Baud)
Found this through trial and error. No reason to leave the app in scan mode, though, since this protocol is the one it will choose. I wish it could be set to scan once for a given vehicle and then remember the result after that. Scanning each time seems terribly inefficient.

Go into the settings and change the units.
