Torque Pro is Android-only. You’ll want EngineLink for iOS.

I’ve had good luck with the Veepeak OBD2 reader (Bluetooth LE version) which is what a number of other folks recommended.

LELink adapter + EngineLink app seems to be a good combo for iOS devices. I've had this for about two years before moving to using fixed display.

EngineLink app is a close equivalent to Android-only Torque Pro as far as using custom PIDs goes, although the syntax and formula slightly differ.

Sorry for the stupid question, I just went to the App Store and indeed, torque pro is not listed. I’ll check out the one you mentioned.
Thanks

As a side note, the free version of Engine Link app (called "Engine Link LE") works only with their LELink adapters. The paid version can work with other adapters like Veepeak.

Thanks, just bought the veepeak adapter, so I’ll be buying the paid version as soon as the adapter arrives.

by the way, the app doesn’t have very good reviews. is the engine link obd2 app that costs 5.99 the right one to get? Only 52 reviews with 3 out of 5 stars at the App Store. Being 2021 I was expecting a lot more reviews and higher rating for an app like this. If it works for you I’ll buy it when the adapter arrives, please let me know.

thanks and sorry for all the, previously answered, questions!

Yes, that's the one. I left a review for good measure. It's not particularly slick but it definitely gets the job done.

I have used both the veepeak and obdlinkMX+. For the price, go with veepeak. The MX supports more functions for GM cars. It is unlikely you will need them.

I bought $100 android phone to keep in the car for using TorquePro. I will tell you this, the IOS app I used was far easier to use and had most of the PIDs already. Torque requires a lot of setup.

I don't have experience with this yet, as I am still prospective Bolt owner, but I did find this link on the forum with all of the info you need. Looks like the "OBD Fusion" iOS app is another option.

Thanks for the info, good idea about a cheap second phone dedicated to torque pro! I’ll keep it in mind

Just for the record, all the forum discussion pertaining to that page happens in this thread:

Hey greendave,

I got the all but doesn’t connect to the adapter, do you know why? Here’s a couple of screenshots

Thanks, I’ll buy this app and try it out
Car scanner ELM OBD2 is another great app for someone who is not familiar with torque pro... it has all PIDs in the app for bolt.
... Also if you buy OBDLink MX+ you can use app from them. And I can guide you Trough setting app custom pids.. but one i have mentioned is 120 dollars that is one of the best on the market and it is approved by Apple

Thanks, if the app I already bought doesn’t work I’ll check this one up.

So you select 'VEEPEAK' from the list of Bluetooth devices there, and it gives that error? It's odd that it would show the adapter but not actually connect up. Obviously the device is powered and bluetooth is working or you wouldn't see it in the list. It's been over a year since I started using it but I don't recall any other steps being needed. Let me experiment today.
