How do i adjust min/max values when using torque and obd dongle?
My car Will never make 100 bar ??.

If you cant adjust the min/max values for each clock, it would be an awesome feature!

Guys, a few questions. Does that still works with the newest android auto update? Also, is this possible with the wireless connection or cable only? And finally, this is for VW cars ONLY or we can use it with any car using a OBD2 dongle? I have a Hyundai, I was wondering if it would work with the dongle as the OP says it works with the dongle, but I'm not sure if the car still needs to be VW...

This app is no longer support by developer ;(

:(
hopefully maybe someone will continue development...

I started working on it again, but google rejected my submission from the Play store... It's a lot of work to support the users (who can sometimes be loud and very unfriendly) when there's no single official channel where I can share the app and gather feedback... And maybe monetize it in some way. But frankly, the personal cost of maintaining it in my free time is too high to keep going on.

Hello! Is it possibile to use aa-stats on Ford models?

Yes you can. You will not get the Vag specific data but with TorqueBHP app, you can get data from OBD

I'm using it right now with AAAD app and works like a charm. I think it's a good start for people who doesn't want to root their phones. Also I can confirm to you the VAG Performance Monitor reads more data than SPORT HMI itself (I recently patched my MIB STD2).

I've been trying to use your app after learning about it from AAAD, but sadly it's not working on my Audi A5 (B9) model here in the US. I'm guessing the MIB2 version is not compatible?

Is there a way to find the software version? Attached is what I could pull up on the car:

What is not working? I mean, does the icon appear in AA menu? If it's not check the AAAD thread, it's been discussed there.

If the readings doesn't work make sure you installed the VEX Vag service from AAAD before instaling VPM. It won't work if you install it directly.

Hi. I can not make this app to read the odb2 data coming from a vLinker. Torque is installed and can read the data from obd2 like a charme. On the car display, instead, I can see the various dashboard as configured in the app, but all indicator are not receiving data from the odb2. The car is a Citroën C5 aircross. Thanks for help. Ciao fro Italy. Enzo
P. S. All plugs in are allowed.

The settings app will show up in AA. But it doesn't show any useful information if I run it. The "icon" does not show up in the AA menu/screen to run the actual program as I've seen on some Youtube videos.

I did install it directly from AAAD initially, and included the other add-on plugin that's required. It didn't work, so I uninstalled it. Can't reinstall using AAAD until the trial period resets, though I understand ADB commands will work to install it the 'correct' way.

EDIT: Didn't see much about this on the AAAD thread.

I'm using Performance Monitor 0.88b and Vag 2.4 with a Skoda Kamiq My2020 with Bolero(MIB2)
it does work.
That is very interesting and curious. I have a Skoda Scala and it does not work. I thought it would never work because the infotainment is MIB3 as it says in the firmware information. Could you provide your Bolero firmware information?

Well with the AA update it's not working for me now so it could be the problem.

On the other hand , it would be nice if @Chillout includes a full scale modifier for the clocks (for example set the full scale of the turbo to 1.2). Also to include a power meter via calculations (Power=Torque*RPM), but I don't remember if he said it wasn't possible to do that.

    Hi all,

    I'm building an app for use with Android Auto, which is capable of displaying and graphing car sensor data, without the need for an OBD2 dongle or any other hardware besides your phone and the infotainment system.
    48626461-322c1380-e9b2-11e8-990a-b380c43f93e1.png


    It has a lot of data elements available. Development progress was previously discussed in an other topic, but since that grew to 28 pages, I decided to make one with a clear title.

    Disclaimer:
    Building this is not my daytime job, and I'm not selling this for money, it's all free. The app is open source, and the source can be found on github. Feel free to contribute. Be patient when requesting new stuff. Don't hate me (or VW) when something isn't working on your car. The app will not void your warranty. Be safe when using it during driving.


    Download:
    Download the latest release here https://github.com/jilleb/mqb-pm/releases. Be sure to read the readme on https://github.com/jilleb/mqb-pm

    Known issues:
    • Results vary from car to car: Not each car shares all data elements.
    • Results vary from firmware version to firmware version: Not each version allows data communication. Using Torque will enable additional data elements!
    • DO NOT UPDATE TO ANDROID AUTO V3! Custom Apps will NOT work, unless you use a 3rd party app enabler.
    • Looking at the screen too much when driving the car is dangerous.
    • Do not update the settings when connected to the car.
    Be sure to check the github page for specific information in case you have other issues.


    Changelog:
    v0.7B

    • Graphs! Tap on a clock and a graph will show up. Tap it again and it will go away

    4c94ce3c743ffc3ccc337df476843a5c.jpg


    More improvements will come in the upcoming days, and I'll release after more testing. I'm planning on adding Tyre pressure/state display, nav heading, Altitude and maaaaaaaaaaaaybe I'll add a theme that will change depending on your car's ambient color.

    hopefully maybe someone will continue development...

    I started working on it again, but google rejected my submission from the Play store... It's a lot of work to support the users (who can sometimes be loud and very unfriendly) when there's no single official channel where I can share the app and gather feedback... And maybe monetize it in some way. But frankly, the personal cost of maintaining it in my free time is too high to keep going on.


    Guys, a few questions. Does that still works with the newest android auto update? Also, is this possible with the wireless connection or cable only? And finally, this is for VW cars ONLY or we can use it with any car using a OBD2 dongle? I have a Hyundai, I was wondering if it would work with the dongle as the OP says it works with the dongle, but I'm not sure if the car still needs to be VW...

    Yes you can. You will not get the Vag specific data but with TorqueBHP app, you can get data from OBD

    @Chillout
    Could you please be back to update the app and fix the old freeze problem?

    Thanks to @manudroid19 and its new app https://forum.xda-developers.com/an...p-android-auto-3rd-party-app-enabler-t3853009 we can use Performance Monitor again!!!
    I'm working on a v2 for the app. Currently I'm struggling with the latest version of Martoreto's AA stats which doesn't give me any data... But as soon as it does, there will be a new version. I'm planning to keep it clean and simple, so I might not include all the various theme options at first.




    I have a Seat Ibiza FR 2018 with all the MirrorLink and Android auto Bell's and whistles. In this scenario would your app work out of the box on a rooted phone or would it need some kind of device access the cars information. Also, are you still actively developing it? If so, you should consider asking for donations to develop it. I know I would..

    Yes I am still developing it, but not at a very high pace because of having a very busy life at the moment. I put up a donations link on golfmk7.com and I got 2 donations. Maybe I should do the same here, but this increases the pressure for me to get it working, and provide support for questions like "hey can you tell me how to install it?" [emoji28]

    About your ibiza: just follow the instructions in the Readme and you're good to go. No extra hardware needed.

    Thank you for creating this amazing app!
    LOVE IT!

    Thanks! :) You can expect a new (major bugfix) release this weekend.

    installed on xiaomi mi A1 Oreo 8.0 no root, granted all permissions, is not shown on Android auto.
    my car is Seat Arona.
    some ideas?
    Are you on Android Auto V3.0? If so, roll back to V2.9 or sideload from ADB..
    Also: Cool car!

    Hello, I still work well, I just want to ask if it would be possible to implement particle filter data, which is something that would be very interesting to have in view. Once again, thanks for the application.
    I'll have a look, but so far I haven't found any data entries regarding particle filters. But I'll keep an eye open for this :cool:

    VAG Extension is crashing on NOTE 8 SM-N950U1 when launching Performance Monitor app.
    App stays open but with VAG Extension crashed message.
    I got more reports from Note 8 users with crashing VAG extensions.. can you make a logcat?
