Fantastic program. Excellent features for overlanding in Africa like fuel used and fuel left, fault codes etc. This can actually save lives.

It connects and work beautifully with a Landcruiser 79.

When you use the trip meter set to carry on if engine is switched off for less than half an hour. It does not reconnect to the ecm when you restart or takes a very long time like in 20 minutes or more. If you shut down Torque and restart it works perfectly but then you loose the trip data up to that point.
I need to log actual fuel usage for the day.

I have the fully paid version on a Sony phone.

Has this reconnect problem been restored ?

I know you are looking for a programmatic solution.
However – perhaps a wiring change on the vehicle side may come to help. Pin 16 of the OBD-II connector (Battery Power) may be always on. Is this true in the case of your vehicle?
My cars have the power there all the time regarding-less of the ignition) and Torque seems to be happy. Only (minor) concern may be extra battery drain when vehicle is parked. (Dongle dependent). But I would not expect any problem if you are not parked for days.
