Here's how to see Boost and other Vehicle Stats while *ALSO* using Android Auto on a Subaru Ascent.

THINGS YOU WILL NEED:
Here's two OBDII dongles that work with Android and Torque (pick ONE):

CHEAPER:

FASTER:

HERE'S TORQUE:
Play Store:

Don't forget to check out the plugins and themes available for Torque.

MOUNTING:
I used the ProClips phone holder and side extension mount arm. Pick a phone holder for YOUR phone, and decide on whether you want to wait for the vehicle specific mount or buy the generic arm. One note: I always recommend AGAINST vent clip mounts because during the winter, you'll heat up your phone.


If you mount it the same as I did, that you make sure the glove box door clears it. That's why I got the 6" mount, so I could mount it lower (to clear the opened glove box door) and yet have the phone higher up.

Great video. Not sure if you mentioned this somewhere, but which ODBII sensor did you end up using in the YouTube video?
Thanks!

I used cheaper in the video, and am using the faster one now.
