OBD-II (also OBD2 or OBDii) stands for On-board diagnostics. It is a standard vehicle manufacturers follow to enable monitoring and problem solving via electronic means. While this typically means being able to see and clear ECU error messages, the communication port also conveys live performance data that is useful for telemetry visualization.
Telemetry Overlay supports multiple OBD-II-capable recording apps: OBDLink/OBDFusion, Torque, Harry's Laptimer, RaceChrono, RaceCapture, TrackAddict... See their respective sections for more specific details.
Telemetry Overlay supports most video formats and dozens of embedded and external data formats.
Gauges can be customized to a great extent, but presets and defaults can make the user experience extremely easy.
Map and satellite imagery is available for representing GPS data.
Export formats for both professional and social use are available.
Lots of documentation, tutorials and an active community help achieve great results.
Almost every commercial car sold in the last 20 years uses this standard and has a communications port available near the steering wheel. There are multiple adapters in the market that enable communication between the car and a mobile phone, including inexpensive ones like Veepeak or Elm327, and higher-end models with advanced features. This is a great alternative to recording GPS data with an action camera, as it combines the precision of instrument-based sensors like speedometer, engine RPM, throttle, temperatures and pressures with reliable GPS data captured by the smartphone.

Excellent program that provides better gauges than others. Works great with GoPro, DJI, and other action cameras/drones. Easy to use and great results.
For users who want to have GPS info and great graphics in one simple easy to use package, this is the software for you
What a really great piece of work this app is. So easy to use and the recent update with racing in mind (laps and lean angle for bikes!) is fantastic
