Plug for the Biscan GM torque pro plugin

I know people have posted about this before, I just wanted to post my short review of the BiScan GM plugin for Torque pro. The app costs $29.95 on Google Play, in addition to the $5 for Torque Pro. I'm using it with an Obdscan MX bluetooth adapter and a Google Pixel 2 phone. I was looking for something that could read back the injector balance, all of the DEF and emmissions specific codes, and perform some of the basic reset functions like force regen and SCR reset and command EGR value. While it doesn't have all of the features of something like a Tech2 (you can't command individual injectors to open or access the Allison transmission controller), it costs a fraction of the price and still gives you great information about things like regen count, injector balance, soot mass, turbo vane position, and injection/fuel pressure status. It also adds those gauges to Torque Pro so you can log the sensors over a trip and post it to the web for later analysis.

I think it's a great tool for the price if you have an LML and want to know the health of your duramax.

Yeah it is pretty good for the price. I bought it a while ago. I like to know when the truck is regening when I am on the highway. I have been tracking my truck and now that I have a custom tune on my truck, it is nice to have the monitoring until I can get a CTS monitor.

I have used this app on my 2015 lml for about a year. The other night I was doing some maintenance on my phone and turned something off, blocking torquepro from seeing the PIDs. Now I cant get torquepro to work with biscan PIDs. I have uninstalled the and reinstalled and still cant get it to work. Anyone know what I can do to get this back on?

Right up my alley, I was just looking at a CTS2 and this might be a better solution. Is there a place where I we can see what other function tests it can perform?

I installed the app, running on a Galaxy s10+, Torque Pro, and OBDLink MX and so far about 10min in I went through testing to see what I could control like Lights and things at the bottom. As soon as I hit door lock, I got a Service 4 Wheel Drive message on my DIC.

Scanning I see some things but stuff like DPF Temp and DPF Differential pressure are blank??

I had similar issues. Returned it in the 2 hour window as I just couldn't trust it.

I gave it a shot all weekend, changed all the coms like it said to prevent the errors, no dice. On my trip, some of the sensors started reading like Differential Pressure sensor etc. Pretty nifty app and kept me from having my laptop out the whole trip.
