phone gadget

Got something to say, but it's not classic related? Here's the place to discuss. Also includes the once ever-so-popular word association thread... (although we've had to start from scratch with it - sorry!)

No need to spend that much for an adapter that runs Torque correctly on Android!

There are dearer ones, but in spite of the haters' views on these, they do work. Make sure that they take their readings from the phone for the car's speed as otherwise, the default is mph and that means that the mpg figures are optimistic by a factor of 0.6217 which looks impressive, but can embarrass you when you run out of fuel in the back of beyond.
:oops:

So there's no need to spend so much, Rich. channel your inner skinflint! ;)
