Torque App Questions

Anybody know the kind of information you can get from a 2005 st 2.3l focus front an OBDII reader and the torque app. I'm looking for a complete list of everything that is compatible with it, such as fuel trims, gas milege, etc. If someone has both these and a st 2.3l focus would you be willing to look and see if what kind of information can be gleened.

I already have a tune and xcal3 from you Correct me if I'm wrong but the xcal3 is a closed proprietary system correct? If so then that does not help me with my project. Also having the xcal3 constantly hooked up is bulky not a really viable solution for me. I don't actually plan on using the torque app I just want to know what data streams are accessible through it for a d23 st focus. Since the torque app relies on a Elm327 (what I plan on using) to retrieve data from. Here is a list of what torque supports CLICKY I just need to know which ones can be read from the D23 st focus.

I actually just found all the information on the PIDs on the motorcraft service website. I'm currently in the process of building a carputer as well as a single app from within to monitor the systems in the car & other features (I'm developing this as an app for the windows 10 platform). While there are lots of programs out there, none have all the stuff I want them to do so I'm building my own. Its not really feasible for me to always have the xcal3 hooked up since mounting the unit in such a way that is both accessible and out of the way is not really possible. I would hook the xcal up to do datalogging but on my average car ride I don't want to deal with that unit and the extra wires. I'm still in the planning stages of this so I'm in need of all the relevant information I could find, the torque app was just the first thing I thought of that has this kind of information laid out from a universal receiver.

I didnt want it sitting around either so I cut the OBDII wire and lengthened it and put the xcal in the glove box , I then made a USB cable that runs out of the glove box xcal under the dash then under the shifter plastic and comes up by the seat so I dont have wires everywhere
I then bought a laptop stand ( 3 ) that now goes in or out in less then 3 seconds so I have my laptop right beside me and can move it around and a passenger still ride , I have me SVT , my 2004 , my 2013 all set up this way for testing with out wires going everywhere , I did the fire wire also to the glove box plugged into the xcal

I can take it all out and tuck it away in 10 sec

Thats a good Idea. I'm a little nervous cutting into a 300+$ device though. Did you solder the OBDII wire or use crimp connections?

I did the plug into the OBDII still and just lengthened the wires then right back under the dash you hardly see it

The are also OBDII extension cables that you could buy to eliminate any cutting and run that to the xcal.
Or since you are building a carputer, just go for an OBDII to USB cable and use a USB extension cable, if you are building a system with free USB ports. Maybe Bluetooth or WiFi adapters if you want to run minimal wires.

Ya I've looked at those. I'm really trying to go for no wire look so one of those right angle OBD cables would be a must. I'm going to look into seeing if i can grab the data from the xcal3 outside of the livelink. I'm sure I could just grab all the output from the device but being able to read the data would b another story. I COULD parse the datalog file and get info from that but it wouldn't be able to access the file while livelink was open and recording.
