Torque Pro Setup
Torque Pro Setup with OneGauge
You must install the “Torque Pro” app on your Android device. This is usually a paid upgrade from Torque Lite, but Torque Lite (the free version) will not connect to OneGauge.
• After installing the OneGauge Hub, check all connections before powering the unit. After the unit has been powered, the Bluetooth signal will be visible to your phone/tablet device. The name of the connection should be “ONEGAUGE” or “HC-05”. Then you will need to connect to the Hub using the password “1234”.
• Once the Bluetooth connection is established you can open the Torque app. You’ll see a gear shape in the bottom-left corner. This is your “Main Setup Menu”. Click the gear, then click “Settings”. Under “OBD2 Adapter Settings”, make sure “Connection Type” is set to Bluetooth and select your Bluetooth signal under the “Select Bluetooth Device” menu.
• You can also use the “Main Setup Menu” to setup a Vehicle Profile that will help the app perform horsepower, torque, and fuel calculations.
• To see your gauges, open the “Realtime Information” screen on the Torque home screen. On this screen you can scroll left and right and see a variety of pre-set gauges. Press and hold to open a menu that will let you delete gauges that are already there and add new gauges. Please note that the default gauges on the gauge screens will NOT display OneGauge sensor data. OneGauge sensors must be added to your gauge screen to get correct readings. These gauges begin with a “.” and are listed at the top of the Gauge Sensor list in the next step.
• To add OneGauge gauges, press and hold on an open spot and select “Add Display”. Choose the type of display
you want, then the next screen is a list of all available sensor options.
o Sensors that are bright green are receiving data. At the top of the list you should see about 30 or so OneGauge sensors (they all begin with a period and are listed first, such as “.Dig Temp”). You’ll be able to see the current reading of each sensor as you scroll through the list. See below for a list of standard sensor names.
▪ Readings provided by your phone/tablet’s GPS or accelerometer are provided lower in the list of sensors, also in green.
o Sensors that are dark green are active but not receiving data. They are in a “ready” state.
o Sensors that are black are not receiving data. Since you are not using an OBD reader, all of the default
vehicle OBD sensors will be black.
o Press and hold on any gauge to edit it. Selecting “Display Configuration” will allow you to change the
gauge’s size, location, minimum and maximum values, and high/low warnings. You can also experiment
with the other menu options to continue to customize the look of your Torque dashboard.
• The “.Voltage” reading provides the default battery voltage based on the connection to the OneGauge
• “.HiTemp” readings provide EGT readings for the EGT slots 1-8 on large circuit boards and 1-2 on small
• If a OneGauge GPS is purchased, “.Altitude” and “.GPSSpeed” readings will be given.
• If an accelerometer is installed, “.Xaccel” and “.Yaccel” will provide roll/tilt readings and “.Xgs” and “.Ygs”
provide g-force readings.
Automatically Launching Torque when Bluetooth Connects
Many people have requested information on how to have the Torque app automatically launch when the vehicle starts. We recommend the Tasker app for help in achieving this.
o Tasker currently costs $3 and is available on the Google Play Store. After installation, open Tasker.
o Navigate to the “Tasks” tab and create a new task. Name the task, click the check mark, and you’ll be on the “Edit Task” screen. Click the “+” to add an element to the task. Select “App” from the list, and then “Launch app”. Your apps will load, then select the Torque app. Click the back arrow, and then the small “Play” triangle at the bottom of the screen. If it doesn’t launch Torque, start this step over. If it is successful, click the back button so you’re on the main Tasker menu.
o On the main menu, select “Profiles” at the top. Use the “+” button to create a new Profile. Select “State” from the menu and then “Net”. Here you can choose what event actually opens the app. You’ll want to select “BT Connected”.
▪ In the name box, use the arrow shaped button and select “Bluetooth Status”. Under name, it should now read “%BLUE”. Then use the magnifying glass icon to select the name of the
OneGauge Hub Bluetooth connection. In my case, it’s called “ONEGAUGE”. So now the Name line
▪ For the Address line, use the magnifying glass and select name of your OneGauge Hub Bluetooth connection. It will fill the Address line with numbers/letters in this format: XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX
o That’s it. Close the Tasker app and test it by turning on the OneGauge Hub and connecting to the Bluetooth signal.
• For this to work, the device must be powered on (but it can be in sleep or locked mode). One suggestion we make is to have the device automatically power on and off when it is plugged in or when the plug is removed. If your device stays in the vehicle and has power run to when the key is on, this is a good way to ‘auto start’ the device. There are tutorials on the internet available for different devices, and since every device is different, we cannot provide instructions here.
Important Note for Torque Pro
Important Note: Once you have created your own dashboard and named your gauges, it is important that you do not enter the “Realtime Information” screen before the OneGauge has connected to the phone. If you do, your custom gauge names can be erased and replaced with the defaults from OneGauge. One option to avoid this is to notify OneGauge at the time of purchase that you will be changing the names of some and we can set your custom default name for each sensor. Please use the following procedure:
• After starting the vehicle, turn on OneGauge before opening the Torque App.
• Do not immediately open the “Realtime Information” screen.
• There are four blue icons that appear at the top of the Torque home screen. The first indicates a GPS Connection, the second is shows the status of the Torque app, the third is your Bluetooth connection to the OneGauge, and the fourth is your vehicle profile (looks like a truck).
o After opening the app, you need to wait until both the 3rd and 4th icons are solid blue before opening the “Realtime Information” screen. Opening the “Realtime Information” screen before the vehicle profile and Bluetooth connections are loaded will erase your custom gauge names.
o A very easy way to tell when the “Realtime Information” screen is ready is the gauge in that appears on the home screen. When the gauge reads “Accel”, do not open the “Realtime Information” screen. Only after this gauge changes to “Revs” is the “Realtime Information” screen ready.
Troubleshooting your Torque Pro Bluetooth Connection
-If the Torque Pro app shows in the top left corner the connection messages, but after connection drops and resets the connection when data begins to show, please reach out to OneGauge
-If you’re not getting gauge readings, please make sure you’ve follows the instructions above and deleted the base gauges that come with the app and created your own new gauges using OneGauge sensor readings that start with a “.”.
