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

Yes i tried the same last week and it works perfectly though the refresh rate (along with hangups)was quite slow on the Bluetooth Module and much slower on the Wifi one.Cabled one was the best when connected to a laptop.Thanks for the inputs

Why not buy it from a Bangalore supplier - I got my OBD2 device from dev_tech_blore on ebay. Mine works great. I dont know Devangs handle here on TBHP, but he seems a knowledgeable techie. Highly recommended (by me).

I got the "Premium ELM27 Bluetooth..." for my A-Star AT. Works with Torque, CarGauge and others.

I tried Fun2Drive from Bosch but it failed to show any data, even though it connected. I sent them feedback and I am hoping they will come up with a fix. Since they list "Indian" makes in the app, this app may turn out to be the best for us with all the extended information that is not shown for localized ECUs /Cars. I am hoping to see the ATF temperature on this app someday.

All of these work with both of your cars. However supermini has fitting issue with VENTO AFAIK so avoid that one.

So Se.No. 3 & 4 are both super mini and I need to avoid. Choice lies with Se. No. 1 & 2. Does the cable version have any advantage over the bluetooth or vice versa. I would suppose the bluetooth version would be the first choice for most.

I'd suggest you to go for the Bluetooth version for your car as it is reliable and doesn't drain the battery even when plugged full-time.

There is VGate ELM327 also. Which is similar to 1) in function. Both will work without issue.

Hi Anurag

While going through this thread I had read your post regarding the ELM 327 working on the fortuner,

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...ml#post3431588

Could you please confirm this? From all reports on the internet, the Fortuner has an M-OBD port and is not OBD2 compatible.

Thanks
Bopanna

All OBD II scanners will work fine with Tata Aria. I will recommend buy of VGate make, they are good and reliable compared to cheapo blue one.

Vgate ICAR 2 ARM Based on Amazon India

Vgate ICAR 1 on Amazon India

There are plenty options available to you on ebay as well as amazon.
