hi have a 2015 PX1 ford ranger 3.2 diesel auto wild track
using Torque Pro with all the gauges towing 3.2 ton caravan
i have tried several dongles over 2 years
the ones that work the best in the ranger are the ( V GATE I CAR 2 WiFI ) and the BAFX Bluetooth for android ( but its very long )
the VGATE ICAR 2 WiFi is a mini 30mm long so fits any were
the others i have 3 ether dont work at all or only read some pids ( info ) all so the WiFi one works great WITH NO phone or WiFi reception con try to what i was told by phone tecs that i would need WiFI reception or hot spot.
if your head unit is WiFi compatible it will work fine
hope that helps some one
cheers Bob

Post ATMA -> OK Faulty ?
on: September 2, 2017 (GMT)

Hi,

If my adapter returns OK on ATMA, is this an indication of an faulty one?

The Spec says it should print the messages then and return to Command mode printing OK when anything is sent to it.

I have choosen CAN wit ATSP6.

NO,

my ELM327 v2.1 returns OK on ATMA
but prints out any CAN-Message after that, actually

atsp6
atcra000 may be atshxxx also
atma

is needed, that is stopped not by any key but an full command like ati

It is a very cheap Ebay Bluetooth ELM327 and seems to work.

Since it speaks the uds protocol = obd over can, the first can byte is the length and if that is less than 7 the bytes after are allways printed as 00 whatever was in the can message, so you can’t transparently log can, first byte must be 7 ore more, may be that can be changed with some other at commands

Sorry if this has been covered elsewhere, but I’m hoping someone can help.

I’m running Torque Pro on a Nexus 7 in-car installation, which is communicating over Bluetooth with a basic clone ELM327 Bluetooth adapter (version 1.5 IIRC).

Given that I leave the adapter plugged in permanently, AND that they have somewhat generic PINs associated with them, is there a risk that someone else could easily pair with the device (which identifies itself as an “OBDII” device), and potentially read my ECU codes (or worse, actualy try and write to it?) If so, is there any easy way to reset/change the factory PIN assigned to the device, to make it harder to pair with? Am I being paranoid? Or is the PIN reset thing just “assumed knowledge”?

Hope you can help.

Just want to let yall know that my adapter I bought from the ‘EEEkit’ seller on walmart.com appears to be in working order and working with my vehicle, which is a 2004 buick regal… bluetooth adapter information below…

Adapter Brand: Konnwei
Adapter software version: 1.5
Device Bluetooth MAC is: 23:32:02:05:89:86
*edit/add* the unit supposedly supports all known protocols

Device Design: black plastic body, with a red rubber grip ring on the end, labeled with the brand name Konnwei in the rubber… it also has 3 tiny LEDS on the end under a power button…

Again… this adapter works currently on a 2004 buick regal, plugged in semi-permanently… anyone else have this adapter, and had problems with it I’d welcome commenting, but for now I would label my device and with no information to the contrary, the Konnwei brand as working…

Also… to those who have a v2.1 model, I’ve read online that if they have a v1.5 software, it is likely real, and v2.1 is likely a very dangerous and/or buggy fake device…

OBDPRO Scantool USB does not work well with my 2005 Volvo S60.
Get a protocol error when trying to run “Test Results”
It severed CanBus communication to the automatic transmission making it stuck in neutral.
It disabled all traction control and anti-lock braking.
A restart brought these back.

I have a 2004 Volvo with no issues.
I have run this adapter on a 2009 Ford Escape and 2010 Mustang with no issues.

Could this be a torque issue?

have a “ELM 327 mini” (supports all ODBII protocols) but the “connection 2 adapter”-Icon in the app plays “ping-pong”.
Running the latest android app on a brand new Huawei Mate 20 pro.
Guess/seems that the adapter is crap.

Any 1 can link to a Adapter that defenetly works propper in a Audi?
And i will NOT disconect my cars battery!
