I bought an OBD ELM327 USB cable in order to use it with Torque Pro since Ice Cream Sandwich USB host capabilities and the Torque website claims that it works. The problem is that when I connect the OBD adapter to my tablet it simply doesnt do anything, but I expected the choose application window to pop up. I downloaded a usb device app and I can see that it is connected, but it doesn't recognize it. How can I configure it so when I connect it the choose app window pops up?

You need a otg cable to put your android into hostmode, that is if your tablet offers usb otg mode. I have this setup running on my galaxy s2 and my daughters fuhu nabi 2 , works great except for I need better shielded cables to prevent ef interference freezing data.
