While the application was first developed for GM OBD-I ECUs, it uses a very flexible way of parsing ECU data stream that has proven useful to a lot of other car enthusiasts such as owners of BMW, Ford, DSM (Mitsubishi), Porsche, etc. The application also includes a complete tuning interface as well as data log file viewers which are in the form of time series, maps and scatter plots.Learn More Download Now
The application has three big components: dashboards where data coming from the ECU can be displayed in various formats, a tuning section and data log file viewers.
Customize the dashboards with any indicators you want to see
Android sensors on your device are used to display useful GPS geolocation data (including speed) as well as triple axis accelerometer data (including g-force)

The application uses ADX and XDF files which are files from TunerPro (Windows software). These files can be found on various sites such as TunerPro Web site itself, GearHead EFI forums as well as your cars enthusiasts forums related to your specific vehicle.
Here is the easy steps that you can follow that will get you going
Find the ADX file for your vehicle. This is often the hardest part. Once your've found it, the rest is easy!
Install the ALDLdroid application from Google Play
Using a file manager application, copy your ADX file into the /ALDLdroid/adx directory
Connect the ALDL cable to your vehicle diagnostic port. Hit the Connect to ECU menu in the application and watch the data come in!
The application supports various hardware that can be wired or connected wirelessly to your Android device. Here is what is currently supported:
Wired connection (USB) and wireless (Bluetooth) are both supported by the app. For Bluetooth, we suggest the 1320 eletronics adapters and for USB, any FTDI (USB chip) based cable will do. Moates should have what you need.
It is possible to program chip for your ECU using the Moates BURN1 (discontinued), BURN2 as well as AutoProm.
For real-time tuning, the application currently support the Moates hardware as well. That is the Ostrich as well as the AutoProm.
If you ECU is equipped with an NVRAM module for real-time tuning, that is also supported for some ECU. Mainly Australian ECUs at this point and more can be added as required.
Some of the features described above can be seen on the screenshots below.
We love to see what our customers do with our application so here a video of Boosted & Built Garage and his pretty awesome setup.
Great app! Sebastian and his app are fantastic! I could not think of any way this app could be more perfect. And the support from Sebastian is top notch!
Amazing app Only app that does what it does. Excellent support if you have problems and invaluable took for working with your obd1 ecm without dragging a laptop along. Well worth the price for the app and the support Sebastien gives.
What the GM OBD1 world has been waiting for! Great displays - easy to use - just what the GM OBD1 world has been waiting for!
This guy needs a medal! I've been looking for an app like this for a very long time! I haven't had the chance to use it much, but so far is working well on my AUS delco ecm.
Amazing The app itself is awesome and works great. But the best part is how quick you get an answer when you have a question and the knowledge the question is answered. Amazing app, amazing tech support for it, I recommend this app to everyone who wants to monitor their email or do their own tuning!
