  • Using Torque Pro for Gauges Extended PID Sensors.

       (0 reviews)


    This article covers the steps needed to use an obdlinkmx or similar to pass info to an application like Torque Pro on your cell phone for gauges.   It will allow you to add more sensors than Ram Publishes for Free.  


    Big Props to Nova3930 on Cumminsforum for getting the list going. 

    Update 8/22/18 

    Added MPG for stock injector trucks : mpg  Beta items are not working yet.

    One of the big perks to using a phone for gauges is you are not limited to a proprietary device and the slow rate of updates that those devices may or may not get.  There is A LOT of data on the obd system for the 4th gen Cummins that we are still decding.  


    What you need. 

    1. bluetooth OBD Reader such as OBDLink MX for your android device or OBDLINK MX WIFI for IOS

    2. Android or IOS Device.  We recommend using a spare and not your phone. this way you can leave it in the truck connected.

    3. Torque Pro app, yes pay for the pro version it is a GREAT app.  

    4. Power plug.  I recommend using a keyed source of power because apps like Torque pro can watch for power input and turn the device screen on and off. 

    5.  You will need this Cummins 6.7 PID list  .  If you use another app it is up to you to change the formar

    6. Window Shade for when parked.   Why? Because you dont want to bake your spare phones battery all day long when it sits.  The dash of a truck in the summer can reach 160*f without much trouble.




    Installing the app and the PID file into Torque.

    1. Download the app from the play store and run the app.

    2. Move the PID definition file to your phones storage/.torque/extendedPID folder. 



    3. import the PID definition file


    4. You should now see new PID's / Sensors in the list of gauges,  Note that the Sensor's that were imported all have : before them to put them in a group new the top of the list. 

    5.  yoiu can long click the Gauge to adjust things like Name, Min / Max, Warning, Size, Location. 
    Setting Up Device to be dedicated gauge, Configure Torque Pro to be more like a dedicated gauge
    This is what my Dashboard looks like.  Gauges are very nicely sized on my old Nexus 6 Device.
