How To Setup Torque Pro App | Manual

Nothing lights people up more than having data at their fingertips, so we have implemented ELM327 proxy support, to make AutoPi more suitable for mobile usage.

It allows users to read out data in 3rd parties mobile apps like Torque Lite/Pro on Android or Car Scanner on iOS and in this post, we will guide you through how to set up this feature with your Autopi Cloud.

OBS. Be aware that this is only available for legacy devices from generation 2 and below.

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.

Get Started in these 5 steps

  1. Enable "ELM327 proxy" on

    Log into with your account. Click on 'Advanced' then 'Settings', and click on 'OBD' on the left side. Scroll a bit down, and find 'Elm327 Proxy'. Right next to "Enable", check the box to be "True", and click to "Save" to configure changes.

  3. Log onto AutoPi Wi-fi hotspot

    Connect to the AutoPi Wifi hotspot from your phone, and pair your phone with your AutoPi device. If you want more detailed instructions about "how to connect to the hotspot", you can read more in AutoPi Getting Started guide.

  4. Setup the Mobile App

    Click on 'Setting' then on 'Connection'. Choose the connection type: Wi-Fi. Type "" or for IP under the OBD2 adapter IP address. OBD2 adapter port should stay on default setup (default = 35000).
