heh, he said he's using torque in the original post (android app).
it also requires the use of a elm bluetooth adapter/dongle... but those can be had for fairly cheap from ebay.

i use a similar setup, but with the more expensive Garmin EcoRoute HD bluetooth adapter (not compatible with the torque app) and the Garmin Mechanic android App..

Newer Bluetooth enabled garmin gpsr's tend to have fairly nice tie-ins to android phoned these days.. they can be used as standard "headsets" for any bluetooth phone, but android phones can be used as "modems" by the gpsr's to download realtime weather maps, traffic maps, and some other extra bits and bobs...
