    If you want to really separate yourself from the other apps currently out, then you would want to offer logging. It is difficult to sit and read the data on my phone when driving around, but if I could take a data sample and have it logged to read it later, that would be extremely helpful.

    If you're in the US, the BAFX OBDII adapter has been very reliable and consistent. Other users in Europe have had success with the Vgate device.

    Version 1.1.2 is in the works, which will allow for compatibility with many more OBD2 devices. Should be out the week of May 6.
    I have something like this vgate and your app doesn't work with it :/

    Hi Skynetz,

    We just posted a how-to video on our YouTube channel for getting started with the app for the first time. You might try that first.

    If it's still not working, send us a screenshot of the app (hit the Windows + lock buttons simultaneously). The status message at the top will help us further diagnose the problem. Also, if you could send us the brand of Bluetooth device you're using, that'll help as well.

    Thanks!

    I tried it a few times, but no luck.

    Great info. Thanks for the reply.

    When you receive the "Lost Connection" status at the top, it is because the Bluetooth device has responded to a request from the app with either "Searching" or "Unable to connect". Sometimes, simply unplugging the device and plugging it back in will help with this, but usually it is a device issue. Also, just to be thorough, you'll want to make sure your vehicle is OBD2 compliant. This was standard on US vehicles 1996 and later, but wasn't fully implemented in Europe until after 2001.

    We purchased one of the mini Bluetooth devices, very similar to the one you posted above, and tried it during the development of the app. It would establish a connection ok, but it never once sent vehicle data. It either sent "unable to connect" or it just said "ok". It's supposed to send a hexadecimal encoded response to represent sensor data from the vehicle. I think the quality on these cheaper devices is hit or miss.

    We've had good success with the BAFX unit, and have recently partnered up with PLX Devices. PLX were one of the first to market with OBD2 Bluetooth devices and have won awards at the SEMA show in Las Vegas for their products. They offer a 1 year warranty as well as a phone number to call for customer support.

    I hope this has been helpful. If there's any other support we can provide, please let us know.

    I tried to unplug and plug it back and than restart the app but it was the same as before. My car is OBD2 supported, because I connected my laptop with the car with a cable and all worked like a charm. Didn't try connecting this bt module with the laptop though (or with an android device). I hope it isn't really a device error, because I bought it a few days ago :/

    I have tried later with a laptop with my car, but it didn't work either. But today I connected it to a Škoda Rapid and it worked, lol. Why won't it work with a Škoda Felicia ?

    What year is the Rapid and Felicia? The OBD2 standard wasn't fully implemented in Europe until 2001 for petrol (gasoline) engines and 2004 for diesel.
