Changes in 1.12.2 (19-Jan-2022) In Beta on Google Play
* Sandboxed scripting ability initially for the pushbutton widget, but now also includes ‘core’ scripts which can be loaded in the app settings:
* Update pushbutton music/audio controls for Android M and above
* Extended sensor/pid DBC imports for new ‘CAN monitor’ mode – settable in the vehicle profile (or just use normal OBD2 for a ‘hybrid’ can monitor & OBD2 mode – the OBDLink MX is fastest when using hybrid modes
* Ability for hybrid OBD & CAN monitor operation at the same time (slow-ish, but useful when you want to log from both methods. OBDLink adapter recommended as it’s faster at the transition between modes)
* Update API so themes can be sent and read via plugins – example plugin source is here:
* API change for ‘sendCommandGetResponse’ which now allows a greater range of OBD commands (0x01, 0x02, 0x03, 0x07, 0x09, 0x0a, 0x21, 0x22, 0x23) without requiring special permissions to be granted in the app settings
* Bump API version number up to 36, update AIDL file:
* Update org.prowl.torque.OBD_CONNECTED/DISCONNECTED/etc intents so android 12+ now sends them again to apps such as tasker and any other plugins that need them to function
* Update to workaround missing features in android 11+ homescreen, to allow Widget plugin to function properly (widget plugin update will also be needed)
* Increase precision in equation parser
* Change the ‘flashing’ alert style of the displays so it is easier to read the value when in the alert state
* Set the readout graph colour to the same as the graph line colour so it can be adjusted by themes
* Add a syntax colouring script editor
* Implement a cleanup of 0 byte logfiles (created when logging was started when not connected to the OBD adapter, but options in the settings such as ‘only when connected’ or ‘synchronous logging’ were enabled which prevent any log writes until you are connected to the ECU). Also adjust the settings wording to reflect this

It’s bad that you deleted the list of changes made earlier,
I often turned to him to remember all the possibilities of the program

That’s what the wiki is supposed to be for (ie: I need to update it)

I’ll get sorted on that one once I’ve finished this beta update, and start doing some more documentation for the features in it (something I’m not very good at doing)

I’ll also see if I can pull the info from the backups as well (the changelog was a bit of a mess for the sticky thread, and needed a ton of stuff cleaning out)

HI, I was just wonder if you would be able to help or advice who could help.

I’m happy user of OBD2BT with Torque Pro, it works fantastic but…

I would like to replace my standard OEM LCD in front of dash in my Honda Accord with 7″ Tablet … and what would be missing to achieve this, is missing status of TEMP (Dual), FAN Speed, Position Status. AIR COn Status ON/OFF… all of it is art of OEM LCD

Is there any way to write/develope a pieace of code and add as plugin/widget to Torque PRO for Honda Accord 2011 in landscape mode so it would be visible fully on the bottom of the screen, (pls check attachment)

Is it possible to get this values from ODB2 and create such a plugin :)?

Much appreciate for your support and advice

Hello friends. sorry for my bad english. There are 2 settings I want to do in RPM and km / h. the pointer flashes when I set the maximum and minimum warning settings from the settings. I would like to do it as color change instead of flashing it.
for example; 0-2000 RPM Green
               2000-3000 RPM blue
               3000- more RPM red
what code do I need to change in order to make this setting?

Thank you for help..

Please forgive my ignorance. I’ve had your software for a while for my 03 Grand Cherokee. In the past, think using Torque, I made some changes to my computer. I am wondering if there is a way to do a general reset to get my computer back to original. I may have made it sick.
