Obdwiz reads Global (generic) obd2.
Scan XL is reading GM enhanced codes as well as the global.  So you will see Codes that aren't going show in obdwiz.

As for clearing the codes.  I believe it will clear everything.  You could try connecting to the TPMS and clear the codes.  But if you scan for codes and it lists all the previous ones you had it will probably clear them all.

Dear Chris,

Thank you for your informative response.

What would normally cause a very slow PID rate? Please comment.

Chris, thank you for your kind offer regarding a replacement Bluetooth device. You are correct, I am only be using Windows & Android, so I guess the Bluetooth version would be suitable. The only concern I have is that I purchased the tool, new,  from a company selling your devices on eBay UK. The kit arrived a few days ago in its original packaging with documentation and it was indeed new. I assumed that the stock manufacture date was normal. Please comment.

Thank you for your on going support.

Regards,

Haroon

Hi..EveryOne...!!
                          I want to make a virtual Car ECU for testing STN1110....So when i plug OBD2 to that ECU it should exactly behave as Car..!!
and should response as the same way of car...Like For Engine RPM,Speed and battery voltages etc so all basic parameter should be covered...!!
So it possible to make a setup like this...!!(and I know CAN also... ;))

Thanks & Regard,

Developer Forum / Android App development for OBDLink MX- Bluetooth
« Last post by RNTBCI on April 17, 2015, 01:41:32 AM »
Hi,

Would like to know if one can develop the android application for OBDLink MX.

Is there any documentation available ?

And i guess as OBDLink MX uses STN1110, and it supoorts all commands for ELM327, a app written for ELM327 should work with OBDLink MX.

Any comment will be useful.

Hi,

I purchased a ElmScan 5 Compact (USB) Scan Tool as well as the ScanXL Pro software.  I was trying to get the ElmScan 5 Compact (USB) hardware to connect to my Android Samsung Note 2 running the OBDLink App.  The OBDLink App. recognizes the ElmScan 5 Compact (USB) device, but I can not get it to connect to the vehicle.  I have tried all of the available BAUD rates including 9,600, 19,200, 57,600, 115,200, and 230,400 but I can not get the ElmScan 5 Compact (USB) to connect to the vehicle.  According to the following link:

https://www.scantool.net/forum/index.php?topic=1690.0

the ElmScan 5 Compact (USB) has two baud rate settings 9,600 and 38,400, but I noticed that the common 38,400 baud rate setting is not an option in the OBDLink App.  When I press the '+ Connect' button at the bottom of the OBDLink App., it says 'Opening communications: ElmScan 5 Compact' and then about 8 seconds later it reports 'Command timed out'.

Question#1 - Can you please tell me how to get the ElmScan 5 Compact (USB) scan tool to connect to the OBDLink App as well as my 2002 Buick Century vehicle?

Question #2 - Also can you please add the 38,400 baud rate setting to the OBDlink App. since the 38,400 baud rate is missing from the list of available baud rates?

Attached are screen captures that I recorded during my testing.

Thanks,

Todd

P.S.  I included a link below from your website about switching the communication baud rate.  In addition, I also included below some additional information that I found on page 1 and page 59 in the ELM327 chipset datasheet.

From ELM327 chipset datasheet:

RS232 baud rates to 500kpbs

Page 59

The default configuration for the ELM327 provides an RS232 data rate of either 9,600 baud, or 38,400 baud, depending on the voltage level at pin 6 during power up or reset.

To change the baud rate to 57,600 enter the following AT commands:

OBDwiz/TouchScan / ScanXL Pro reports three DTCs while OBDwiz reports NO DTCs
« Last post by toddsh88 on April 16, 2015, 08:02:04 PM »
Hi,

I purchased an ElmScan 5 Compact (USB) Scan Tool as well as the ScanXL Pro and the GM Add-On module.

When I read the trouble codes using the ScanXL Pro application, it reported the following trouble codes:

Stored Trouble Codes
---------------------------
P0463 – Fuel Level Sensor 1 Circuit High Voltage
P1189 – Engine Oil Pressure (EOP) Switch Circuit
C1245 – Low Tire Pressure Detected

When I read the trouble codes using the OBDwiz application, it reported:

‘There were NO pending, stored, or permanent diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs)’.

The vehicle being scanned was a 2002 Buick Century.

Question #1 – Why did ScanXL Pro report these three DTCs, but OBDwiz reported none of these three codes?  I did not clear any of the codes with either ScanXL Pro or OBDwiz, or any other OBD scan tool for that matter.  Will this problem be corrected with OBDwiz?

Question #2 – Is there any way to clear one of these three codes individually without clearing all three DTC codes with either ScanXL Pro or OBDwiz or some other software product that you is available for download or that you sell?

Attached are screen captures for ScanXL Pro and OBDwiz.

Thanks for any information you can provide.

I am sorry for your frustration, I feel your pain.  My ASUS motherboard (Z87-PRO) has built in BT 4.0 that would pair with my phone, but not with any OBDLink device.  MY phone could pair with the OBDLink devices so I was really frustrated.  I also had to get a usb BT adapter(IOGear) and disable the onboard BT to get everything to play nicely.

It probably has the old firmware because of its manufacture date.  I don't know why you would get one that's that old though.

We are working with the WiFi vendor to make the WiFi connection more reliable and we should have something to test from the vendor within the next week.  To be honest, if you aren't using an iOS device or don't plan to use one, you should probably get an MX Bluetooth instead.  Your vehicle should be getting closer to 60 PIDs/s, not 4 to 8.  If you want to exchange it for a Bluetooth, I can have sales contact you about it.

With the exception of oil temperature, the additional dashboard gauges on your vehicle may not be able to be obtained in the app.  Even oil temp may not be able to put in a gauge on the app as it all depends on what the vehicle supports on the OBD network.

Regards,
Chris
