Torque app lets Dell Streak display real-time performance data from vehicle engines


If it can be driven, then StreakSmart reader Cody will come up with a way to integrate his Dell Streak into it.

We saw his outstanding Harley-Davidson Road King setup a few months ago and the way he uses the Android pocket tablet in his Dodge Ram a month before that, so you know that when he uploads a new video to his YouTube channel that it's going to show off the Streak in a way that would make just about anybody out there want one.

One of Cody's latest vehicular adventures with his Streak is to use Torque, a car performance/diagnostics app (£2.95 in the Market), and a Kiwi Bluetooth adapterir?t=streaksmart 20&l=as2&o=1&a=B004DKDLP4 - for some reason we don't have an alt tag here to connect to his truck's OBD2 engine. Check out his video overview below.

Torque supports Bluetooth ELM/OBD/PDX adapters and can also use GPS to generate tracker logs with engine logging. I don't know what any of that means since the only thing I know about cars is that they get me from point A to point B, but I'm guessing that all you car and truck folk out there start salivating when you hear words like "timing advance" and "throttle position."

Thanks, Cody!
