Post Connection issues with WiFi OBD adapters
on: July 30, 2017 (GMT)

So I have purchased 2 wifi adapter for the faster functionality of data. however I have experienced the same issue with both. Plugged first one in connected phone to it’s wifi and torque pro worked perfectly. Turned off car came back and phone connected to the wifi of the adapter no prob but torque pro will not see the adapter.

So I purchased a second wifi adapter and same thing worked great first time then after torque doesn’t see it.

I have tried uninstalling re installing the app I have tried forgetting the network and reconnecting. Unplugging and replugging, plug in with car off then turn on plug in with car on .. all times phone sees the adapter just fine and connects but torque pro does not.

Although this is advice from a newby/novice to this app, when I see all the topics here and reviews of the app that relate to ECU connection problems, I feel I need to let people know what solved mine. Here goes:
When you close the Torque Pro app, be sure to use the “Quit” command under the the settings icon. Initially, I was just closing it as a typical Android app and it would then not connect on my future attempts unless I used this approach or did a forced stop in the Android apps manager.

You may already be using the Quit command, but I thought I would just mention it.


PS: My adapter is the Veepeak Wifi version on Amazon.

2010 – Silverado HD (LMM)

Just got the Veepeak wifi adapter on Amazon and this exact problem happened to me. Using Android.

[edit] I think I’ve found the solution. You have to disable mobile data on device for the wifi to connect.

I have the exact same issue with a iCarsoft WiFi adapter. After connecting the phone to the adapter, I need to temporarily disable Mobile Data before starting the app. Once the connection between the app and the adapter is established, I can enable mobile data again and the connection will stay stable.

Don’t think it has been like this all the time. Maybe introduced by some Android update? Also, I don’t think this is a solution. It is more like a workaround as it is not very convenient. Hoping to find a solution, preferable somewhere in Android settings. Any suggestions?

I have a veepeak wifi adapter and have not noticed this issue. I will put a test to verify and write back.
