Is there anything out there that offers quite a bit more functionality then the standard basic backyard mechanic apps? That can be found all day long on the google playstore.
I don't mind paying a few dollars for an actual useable app. But i'm running in to a brick wall.
I'd like to be able to monitor actual turbo pressure. NOT vacuum. See what my oil pressure and temp are maybe. Transmission temps. Exhaust temp that I know operates hotter then 1000 degrees. ETC.
I know there's scangauge one can buy from autozone for $160. But I want something better then a black and colored screen to read more then 4 gauges on one screen per page. There's something called Ultragauge for $80. Looks like it MIGHT be worth looking in to. But can only be bought directly through the company. And offers a gauge unit bigger then scangauge with more 3D type animated screen. Or Bluetooth adapter and free ultragauge app which will only work with their proprietary adapter.
I bought the quicklink Bluetooth adapter from autozone today. And downloaded the free app. But it's the same app as dashcommand with a few other options which really don't need unless I want to get in to diagnostics. Dashcommand is also free and works with the elm327 and baxf adapters I have. So it'll be going back for a refund.
Torque and dashcommand and all the other apps just don't work for me. They're too basic. And very limited in what they do.
Being a retired mechanic. I've used snapon scanners and what not. So I know what the ecm will throw out. It's a lot more then what the google playstore apps can do. I'm not looking for the full blown setup. Just something that will do what I actually want. More gauges.
