Torque Pro App Instruction

Torque Pro can interact with the numerous sensors regulating the Engine Management System (EMS) in your vehicle's engine, gearbox, and other electrical components, such as ABS, wheel sensors, and airbag sensors.

Torque Pro is an application software that runs on the Android operating system.

The Torque app not only allows car owners to get data from a variety of linked EMS sensors, but it also allows them to closely monitor their vehicle's engine control units (ECUs) and review and clear diagnostic trouble codes.

How does AutoPi Telematics Unit (TMU) work?

The AutoPi TMU is connected to the vehicle via the OBD-II port and gains data on automotive usage via CAN bus messages. Which can be visually presented in the AutoPi Cloud.

The CAN Bus is a reliable, simple, and inexpensive serial bus system for in-vehicle and automotive communication that makes it possible for users to read out fuel consumption, battery usage / charging state level, or car engine diagnostics data.
