Look for BiScan for GM on the Google Play store. I use it and it will load up all sorts of PIDs. There are only a few specific 1.6l PIDs, but it seems all the 2.8l Duramax PIDs work. You'll have more than you can fit on one screen with the tiny size guages.

@Snipesy developed that one.

Perhaps he has some more input regarding the 1.6TD parameters? Works wonderfully the 2.0TDs.

I believe PID is for Parameter Identification Designation or something like that.... basically it is a code that your reader would use to tell the car it wants a particular set of data from the car, to display, and then it's a request and receive function to get that on your display. OBD 2 is a standard protocol for emissions that crosses over many OEMs, but the OEMs often use additional non emissions parameters that if given the correct PID you can request and display, for example I can get the oil pressure reading via PID and OBD2 reader, and on Gen 1 the Transmission Temperature, because the BiScan for GM plug in to Torque Pro has those pre-defined PIDs included and available for viewing. BiScan for GM was created by Snipesy, who also has a new version called Gretio, that does not use Torque Pro. Hope that helps.
