New Android OBD App (WIP) (Dev)

Hey Everyone, first post here, been poking around for a while though. First, let me introduce myself, I am a Trailblazer owner (first and foremost) and an Android Developer. Much like a lot of people here I own a Bluetooth OBD2 adapter. While trying to find a decent app for OBD that is updated in terms of functionality and looks, I basically came to a dead end. While Torque and similar apps work, they are pretty outdated and (let's be honest here) look horrible. So I set out a couple days ago to create my own OBD app that will outperform Torque (and many others) and be updated to the latest design specs.

This is a work in progress, I just started it a few days ago but development is going quickly. At this time it's able to clear DTCs and is capable of pulling supported PIDs, trouble codes, and basic vehicle information (RPM, Speed, VIN, Voltage, etc.) from an OBD emulator (on Android) and my car (being finicky atm). I'm looking for everyone's input on what features they would like to see and what can be improved on from the other apps. I will be looking for beta testers in the next few weeks (hopefully) so if you are interested let me know!

Here's a preliminary list of the features I plan to add before stable release:
All available live data of course :biggrin:
Auto VIN Identification
Vehicle Profiles
Track and save DTCs/Performace Data for each vehicle
A console so you can send your own commands. We all know you want to. :wink:
Cloud backup and sync
Export to file (Excel?)
0-60 Times (Performance Tracking)
Auto connect
And more things suggested by you guys!
I appreciate ANY feedback or suggestions, I will do my best to keep an eye on this thread and if anyone has any questions feel free to ask them and I will try to answer them!

Thanks guys! (There are some screenshots on GMTNation if you are interested)

Beta and Dash Command

Hi Ahodak,

I'm fairly new here, been looking around and owning a 2003 Trailblazer since half a year. My first post, I'll go introduce myself soon.
Been using Dash Command a lot for my Volvo 960-2 and just getting into setting up a new layout with interesting information in Dash Command for the TB.

No problem in beta testing if you're ready for it, just let me know!
