Part of my Christmas loot was a big fat bonus from my Employer. This has lead to various toys to play with. One of them was a BAFX Products ELM327 OBD Scan Tool to use in my car.
Another Christmas item (from my wife) was a GoPro Hero3 Black.
So I combined showing them into a single video. The video shows it better than I could explain it; and really, there’s a ton of sites explaining Torque out there. What I wanted to show was the “how integrated it feels” bit.
Here’s the video:
Testing Hero3 Black by demoing Torque
- The newness wears off after a week. Sometimes, its distracting.
- My car uses 0.2 gallons per hour when idling; more when warming up.
- The color on the Hero3 initially seemed bland, but was much more “workable” than the Hero960. Much better Midtones, more data to work with.
- I like that I can pretty much leave the droid in the car. It has Navigon USA on it as well, it can double as a GPS, even though there is no cell service activated for it.
