thanks govigov & catalyst_delhi - will for sure order one from dealextreme. Yes, I will be getting the USB version rather than the bluetooth one. I am planning a carputer, might get something on those lines.

I seen a setup on an ipad with bluetooth on a Ford Fiesta Petrol. Was amazing. Still you do not have any/much to tweak and change like on VAG.

Could you tell me which software you used. I was always under the impression that the iPad (and all I devices) require a wifi connection for obd (ie bluetooth does not work). Some clarity on this would be great.

Thank you

It has to be an app called torque. not sure if there are similar apps out there other than torque. torque is pretty damn neat.

Torque pro is for android. I have the paid version. My question was regarding iDevices (iPad, iPhone, iPod touch). And whether any software exists that allows connection between an iPad and a Bluetooth obd dongle. Afaik none exist. The torque application on apple AppStore has something to do with torque wrenches etc.

Anybody tried this with a VW Polo? Perhaps with VCDS we can change quite a number of settings..

Default Hanatech OBD Scanner for Indian Vehicles

Not sure about the price of Autosnap IN805. I just came across it while browsing for OBD scan tools for Indian cars.


On a side note, here is my OBD error correction experience...

The engine on my MPFI Zen when left on idle ran very uneven and rough. It also had engine hesitation (choked during driving). After a basic service, my regular mechanic changed the air filter, fuel filter and spark plugs. The problem still existed and he had given up saying only an OBD scanner can pin-point the issue.

After doing a lot of research I took my car to a diagnostic center here in Chennai (Chennai Cars Pvt Ltd , PH : 9840124365).

The equipment used was HANA TECH "DCN-SCAN".

After a quick 3 minute scan, it returned Error P0105 (Manifold Absolute Pressure Circuit Malfunction). The technician cleaned the MAP sensor and then reset the error code via the scanner. Since then, the car has been running like a charm! He charged me Rs.500/-

The service technician ("Paul", owner of the engine scan centre) was very knowledgeable and he said that he had purchased the scanner around 8 years ago but keeps updating its software (codes) thru their website. Because of this, he is able to scan any car irrespective of the year of manufacturer. He was generous enough to allow me browse thru the exhaustive list of car model selector menu categorized by region (Eg : USA, Asian, Japan etc). I am 99% sure, it had all cars sold in the Indian market.

He added that, the specific scanner model he was using has become end-of-life and the current equivalent model offered by Hanatech is "Ultrascan P1" and details about it can be found on "'www.hanatech.net'".

Yes you can connect your idevice via Bluetooth BUT only if you are jailbroken. There's an app available at cydia 'roqybt4' that make the magic happen. You can use dashcommand with it.

Default re: OBD (On-board diagnostics) for Indian Cars

I own a Suzuki Zen (year 2000 model).
I am looking for a diagnostic device that I can use with my laptop to read the following-

1. Throttle Position Sensor voltage
2. Timing Value

Can somebody please direct me to all the things that I need?

Default re: OBD (On-board diagnostics) for Indian Cars

Please recommend a OBDII scan device (like SGII or A301) for August 2006 make CIVIC. I'm interested in DTE (distance to empty), litres/100 km (or, kmpl) and a "configurable" speedo adjustment (These 3 are absolute must). I have upsized to 205/65 R15, so need to honor the error. Also, a ecommerce site, from where I can finally buy. Indicative price/link will be much appreciated. Can fall back to android mobile application + ELM327 bluetooth module (Is there any such software - heard of torque but not sure of adjustments to speedo).

I run the scanguage 'e' on my car. I get a host of details including speedo, real time mileage monitor in kms. But there is no DTE in the list. Not sure if an OBD port can give out DTE data.

Suggest you shoot a mail to the SGII guys.
