This is the one I bought
According to the Torque Pro forum there are some issues with the cheap adapters. You get what you pay for. This one works for me, so fair warning. This shipped directly from China and took about 2 weeks to get.
I took some fiddling with the App to get the correct PIDs for the transmission temp for my Escape. It comes with a standard set that covers the basics and then some, but everything is customizable. I have recently purchased an older Suburban and I am having to go thru the same process again to get the transmission temp working on it as well. so far I haven't found the correct equations on the web. I use my phone as the display but I am also thinking about buying a cheap "Chinese" tablet just for this and mounting it in the suburban. The bigger screen will make it easier for me to read while driving. Torque Pro is only compatible with Android phones or tablets.
I am having to learn the setup for the interface for Chevy, but the one for the Escape is awesome. Tells me EVERYTHING that is going on in the engine. There is a ton of online support and info relating to Ford's 7.3 diesel. If you can operate a smart phone you can operate this app. Its not hard at all.
