Can anyone reccomend an android mobile app that can read Ford Focus ABS module error codes or even just read / display the wheel sensor data ?
I'm using a bluetooth OBDII adapter (https://xtrons.com/catalog/product/view/id/901/s/obd-ii-scanner-tool-obd01/). I usually use Torque and find it good but it doesn't read ABS fault codes and neither do any of the several other apps I've tried.

OBD reader needed to diagnose and reset.
Any recommendations for a suitable DIY unit that will do this job but also have functionality that might be useful on other likely jobs or other cars in the family.
It seems I need OBDII standard. I don't think I need real-time readings, data plotting or printing.
More inclined to a self-contained unit than a bluetooth-ed plug and downloaded software.
I'm considering this reader (€29) in Mick's Garage and I see stacks of them for sale on Adverts.
Some advice/recommendations welcome. Thanks.

Carly is good system, also does option coding which is rare in most other systems, its model specific.

Turns out its more complicated than I thought.
rosstech h\ve them for sale on their site and list an Irish agent, who only lists pro version on their site.
Done deal and adverts full of adds for very cheap cables. Actually bought one came supplied with the software a very genuine looking cable that's marked as a hex-v2 but software recognises as an obsolete hex-usb-can that wont work on my car.
contacted seller who told me I should have installed a cracked loader and put on a dedicated laptop with no antivirus or internet connection.
it's gone in the bin and written off as a lesson learnt..
I'm looking for an enthusiast cable, 3 vins is fine, just to play around with and learn.. Also happy to buy a second hand genuine cable.
Any reputable sellers recommended ?/

No internet connection lol Ross tech update VCDS at least once a month so it would be quickly out of date. I know they are more expensive but it's worth trying to get a new or second hand one with unlimited VINS as they will hold value pretty well.

Most brands going that way with coding and option changes - have to be connected to mothership with factory or high end box. Diagnostic codes / functions only via stand alone aftermarket scanners. Subscription model will soon take over where you pay per month to have certain options turned on.
