ELM327 Bluetooth OBDII Scanner with Torque app, then what?

Now that I have all the diagnostic information, what do I do with it?
1) Engine RPM
2) Calculated Load Value
3) Coolant Temperature
4) Fuel System Status
5) Vehicle Speed
6) Short Term Fuel Trim
7) Long Term Fuel Trim
8) Intake Manifold Pressure
9) Timing Advance
10) Intake Air Temperature
11) Air Flow Rate
12) Absolute Throttle Position
13) Oxygen sensor voltages/associated short term fuel trims
14) Fuel System status
15) Fuel Pressure

Is there a table I can use somewhere to compare them with?

Look at it? What are you trying to accomplish?

I use mine to log spirited driving and draw the parameters on a map. I also use it to read/clear codes.

Do you think you have a problem? You should be able to find typical values for a lot of those parameters by searching the forum. I wouldn't noid out on it though if you don't think you have a problem. Always leads to enjoying your car less due to "perceived problems" .

Use it for fun until you have an issue, then it makes a nice diagnostic tool as well.

I also just bought the ELM 327 Bluetooth OBDII and downloaded the app. I know it should be pretty easy to understand but can you make changes. I know some of you have a better grasp of it since it been around a while. Beside checking codes what else can it be used for? Maybe there needs to be a dedicated thread so ppl can exchange info and ask questions.

I really want to use it to log runs but have several questions.

Since I don't have the OBDII in my hands yet(will be delivered tmo).

But how do you retrieve results from data logging? Do you set your own parameters?

Sorry hemp but I got 12 hr at work to waste.lol.

I really just want to hit the ground running when I get this device.

Yep. You can choose any parameter that is recognized, which honestly, is pretty much everything. The logs are saved as an excel spreadsheet. I'm not sure if there is a graphical viewer or not? I'll see what I can find.

The app gauges work the same way. You choose the type and size of gauge you want, then you can assign any parameter to any gauge and plant it on a desktop. Placing things works a lot like android works. Home screens and all.

Thanks man. I guess I will play around with it before work tomorrow. Surely I will have a few more questions.

Will these logs be something my tuner can look at and make changes. The same he would run with HPTuners. Basically does this device offer good accurate info for him to make adjustments if needed?

Just to test that I tried to open the .csv file in LiveLink (SCT logging software) and it wouldn't open it. CSV is just a generic "comma separated values" file. Your tuner could use the tables to make changes, but he'll have to look at them as a spreadsheet. That's not something tuners are unfamiliar with. It's better than having no data at all!
