We thought it’d be valuable to publish a brief tutorial to help users get started with Torque. So.. here goes!
STEP 1: Plug your OBD Bluetooth adapter into your vehicle’s OBDII port
- You’ll want to make sure that your vehicle’s OBDII port is nice and clean. If you just finished that wheeling trip with your doors off and managed to cover your entire interior with mud.. then we highly recommend blowing out the port with an air compressor, then spraying it with some contact cleaner.
- When you plug the OBD Bluetooth adapter in, you should see a red indicator light. If this light doesn’t come on, contact Insane Audio Support at firstname.lastname@example.org
STEP 2: Connect your OBD Bluetooth Adapter to your JK1001
- First, click on the BLUETOOTH icon (unless you moved it, it will be on the bottom right of your main menu)
- Click on the Match icon at the center of the bottom row
- You’ll note that this menu shows all PAIRED and AVAILABLE devices. A PAIRED device is something that has already been connected to your JK1001. It’s either currently connected (in which case it will be displayed in green) or it’s been connected before (in which case, your JK1001 has remembered the connection for future use).
- To make life easier, let’s remove all paired devices. You can always add them back later. So.. if you’ve got anything listed under Paired Devices, simply click on it once then click on the trash button on the bottom right of your screen.
- Once you’ve removed all the paired devices, you’ll want to ask your JK1001 to search for all available devices. Click on the search icon (on the top right)
- The search takes a little bit but should find your OBD Bluetooth Adapter.
- If you’re really impatient and don’t feel like waiting for your JK11001 to scan every single Bluetooth frequency, then once your OBD adapter is listed under Available Devices you can click on back, then go back into the Match icon.
- Click on the OBDII device under Available Devices, then click on the connect button (just below search). If it asks for a password, the password is “1234”
- Once your JK1001 successfully connects, your OBDII device will be listed under Paired Devices and should now be green to let you know that all is good.
- You’ll now want to launch the Torque application
- From the Torque main menu, click on the settings icon on the bottom left (it looks like a mini mixing board with three sliders)
- At the pop-up menu, select settings
- Scroll down and select OBD Adapter Settings
- Then find “choose Bluetooth device”
- If you followed our directions in Step 2, then there should only be one device listed. Click on it!
Torque is now setup!
From the main Torque menu, click on the Realtime Information button at the upper right and you should see data being displayed.
- You’ll want to setup a vehicle profile at some point in time
- Play around with the realtime information interface. There is a ton of cool stuff that you can access and display and almost everything is customizable. For example, swipe down to a blank screen. Long press on the screen and click on “add display” and check out some of the different display types. Once you select one, you’ll see some of the sensor information that you can now access.
- If you add a gauge and it shows up sideways… simply exit Torque, then go back in and it will re-orient itself properly.
- Note that Torque can only display data that is available on your Jeep’s computer. If a gaue says “no data” that doesn’t mean that it’s broken… it just means that the information simply isn’t available. For example, unless you have a turbo that was installed at the Jeep factory, then you aren’t going to get any information for the boost display.
