Q.  How can I display the status of my car with gauges on an Android phone/tablet?

A.  Get a  low cost ($~10) OBD2 device to plug-in to the car's diagnostic port.
It can communicate with Bluetooth to a phone/tablet
you can mount on your dashboard.

Lots of apps can display this info but Torque seems to be the most popular.  $5
