As others have said, no. Data logging is mostly used to measure real time A/F ratios, along with other key factors to determine if the car is running correctly in a real outdoor environment. Not to determine horsepower or torque.

The torque app of android has a hp calculator. Couldn't tell you how accurate it is though. I would assume you would have to do a 5th gear pull to get an even remotely accurate reading and that sounds like a horrible idea on public roads.

I wish lmao. Ive seen that Torque app though, where you can hook your phone up to the OBD2 port via a bluetooth adapter. The adapter is only like $17 on amazon. Might pick it up. You can do a ton of stuff with it. Especially if you cant have the track pack stock.

If you have an iphone though you need a wifi obd2 adapter. I haven't found one with good enough reviews at a reasonable price yet.

No you dont need Internet or wifi with Android devices. It works directly off bluetooth. But yes, you do need GPS no matter what.

Again, i would not recommend or rely on this app to give you 100% accurate numbers. If you are data logging for serious reasons like boost or nitrous, do it right and get a laptop with the proper software. If you just wanna play around with your car, get approximate readings, and keep an eye on things than use this.
