I bougt one of these cheap adapters.
Unfortunately connecting to Torque Pro seems to be very hard. It worked in a few times (once connected everythin works very good).

To my surprise other android apps like Bosch-Fun2drive and OBD-car-doctor always connect my Galaxy S3 (Cyanogenmod 11, Nightly Build) without problems to a Golf V TDI.

So the adapter generally works.

With my Samsung Galaxy Tab 4 8.0 (Android 4.4.2.) everything works perfect (same Car, same adapter)…

one thing i have seen is that craked version of the software that come from time to time with the adapter won’t work

but will work with a lidgit version..

could be be because of the version to, nothing to do with craked or not

Hi All,

I received my mini ELM327 V1.5 OBD2 ODBII Bluetooth today and tested with my in-car android 4.2.2 unit.

At the time of pairing it was found and paired quickly and did not ask for the code but “Torque Lite” can not find it. ” Bluetooth not enabled!(sleeping 60sec).

If I disconnect the ODB unit from car then I get msg “No paired Bluetooth device” in Torque.

I have contacted the seller and he advised the nothing is wrong with the ELM327 its the issue with Head-unit where OPP stack is locked.

need help.

Thanks.

I bought app Torque Pro. I have a phone Samsung Galaxy Note 3 SM-N9005. The phone Android 4.4.2 and root. I joined adapter and everything was functional. Phone offered me an update on Android. Before I always do such updating – Full Wipe. I did it and I installed everything again. But I have a problem with your application. Pairing do, but I do not to connect to the adapter. I tried to install the application from the competition OBD Car Doctor Free and it works without problems.
——————————–
Torque is absolutely gorgeous and fantastic application. I know this because I work properly.
——————————–
For the same phone as now not operational. With the same adapter as before. Developer and its creator – Ian Hawkins did a great fair job, but …

I have successfully solved the problem, and again everything is functional.

I have had this adapter since I originally purchased the Torque app, never had a problem, worked great till the last couple times I have tried to use it on my Subaru. I dont understand how you claim its the adapter when it worked perfectly and now doesnt (but only with your app, I have had to revert to a free app for my Subaru. Works perfectly with the free app, why not fix your app?

Same here, used to work just fine w the cheap adapter on several different cars with several different cheapie adapters. Now it quit working.
I installed ECU access tester and it connects and communicates just fine w the cheapie adapter over bluetooth.
Torque is BROKEN.
What is even worse, no response from the support people. I did pay for it.

Another variant seen in the field: 11:22:33:AA:BB:CC.

No way that’s a real MAC address.

I saw this MAC address on a very cheap (.99) Bluetooth adapter (Amazon product # B005M1AVFQ), which appears to be a knockoff of a much more expensive one, as seen in the “Clone Adapters” page of the Torque wiki, http://torque-bhp.com/wiki/Bluetooth_Adapters). The one being imitated seems to be the obd2world ELM329 Adapter. The general appearance of and markings on the cheap one are nearly identical to those of the obd2world product.

The knockoff adapter connected, but data drops out sometimes for no obvious reason. Considering this with the obviously faked MAC address, I wasn’t very happy with the quality of the device.

I requested to return the cheap adapter for a refund, but the vendor gave me a refund without requiring that I return it. I plan to disassemble the adapter to examine its construction & verify whether it uses a genuine ELM 327 chip. Bet it doesn’t, even though it reported itself as “ELM 1.5.”

While my car is old enough (1998) that it probably doesn’t “need” the features of newer ELM 327 versions, I’d rather have the real thing.

Torque must have changed it’s code. I have an blue ELM apter that has been working for a year. Now Torque gives me a MSG (which it never did before) saying it doesn’t work with ebay ODBC devices. It pairs find with my tablet just not with Torque?

Strange thing happened to me with the ELM327.

With my other dongle I can read everything to include the transmission.

With the ELM327 I can read everything except the transmission.

Why?

Bought a BLUE version of the ELM327 OBD11.

Dynavin 4.4.4 KITKAT radio

Cannot get the BT to work on this radio – works fine on my Samsung with android 5.xx

Any reason why not? device doesn’t want to even pair on the 4.4.4.

I have had trouble with my ELM obd2, has been fine up until recently I upgraded. Now it cannot connect to my ECU. unfortunately there are no templates for the MGFT and dispite once finding what the protocol it was has unset my setup. It connect the obd2 bit won’t talk to the eco.

I can say was working two days ago until I tried it yesterday.

I’ve got the ELM327 unit sold by “supertiger” on eBay item #190900535147. It is one with the infamous MAC address.

I had trouble entering the PIN of “1234”. It turned out that it must be entered in the first 60 seconds of the connection.

After that, performance has been exemplary.

Try plugging it in when the engin is running then start torque, works on mine. Also try 0000 for the Bluetooth pin
