Default 1999 V70 OBD2 dongle view coolant temperature?

Hi all

For a 1999 V70 AWD, on a cheap OBD2 blue dongle and the free Torque app, can I view the coolant temperature?

I can add a gauge to show "Engine Coolant Temperature", but it is always zero/no data.

Surely that info should be visible? Maybe I am dreaming but I thought I had seen it in the past.

Other gauges such as RPM, Throttle (manifold) position, mpg, work fine.

I can only get coolant temperature to work with a V1.5 ELM327.

V2.1 dongles shows blank for ECT.
