AlfaOBD software for diagnostics of the cars produced by FCA: Alfa-Romeo, Fiat, Lancia, Dodge, RAM, Chrysler, Jeep. Peugeot (Boxer), Citroen (Jumper) are also covered. Although the software is primarily targeted for car owners, it provides the features of professional scanners. Many dealer-level diagnostic and configuration procedures are available.
NOTE: FCA vehicles since MY2018 have security gateway module (SGW) installed. It blocks the third-party diagnostics. To have full access to the diagnostic features, please use an SGW bypass. Owners of Fiat 500X/JEEP Renegade/Compass (MP), please make sure that the bypass supports the second high-speed CAN bus, the one that is connected to the pins 12&13 of the car OBD plug.
NOTE: if your Android device is not in the list of compatible devices on Google Play and you cannot install or upgrade your installation please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Make sure you have a compatible OBD interface. For the list of supported OBD interfaces see www.alfaobd.com.
NOTE: If AlfaOBD can not connect to a car ECU with the message "Interface reports NO DATA" or "Interface reports CAN ERROR" it most probably means your interface is not compatible or defective.
For the details of configuration of connection to interface and car see application help available on http://www.alfaobd.com/AlfaOBD_Android_Help.pdf
AlfaOBD features include: - native support of Electronic control units used in Fiat group cars. Native support differs AlfaOBD from many other diagnostic applications providing only limited generic OBDII support of Fiat group cars - monitoring various dynamic parameters of engine, gearbox, ABS, climate control ECUs and graphical presentation as plots - reading of static data: ECU identification, system status, fault codes with probable causes and environment information where applicable - clearing of fault codes - active diagnostics and configuration procedures for various equipment controlled by engine, gearbox, body computer, climate control, ABS, airbag, code control and other ECUs - electronic key and RF remote control programming
For the full list of supported control units visit http://www.alfaobd.com
Application available in Czech, English, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, and Spanish. Languages are selectable via application Settings menu.
NOTE: If plots are not updated, make sure that "Force GPU rendering" is off in "Settings"->"Developer Option".
Has not worked for any of the features I got it for, on a LX model Vehicle. So for my use case it was a total loss, sadly. DiagFCA can in fact accommodate all those, some of the features I was after are listed don't work, some are not listed. Mileage Correction: NA TMPS Delete: Doesn't work Key Programming: Doesn't work Changing some less important Features: did work, not why I bought it. Options seem good for newer vehicles, and on YT videos seem to work there. YMMV.

Awesome App - I've used for 2 years now. I've made several changes to my Ram 2500, programmed extra keys, speedo adjustment after putting on larger tires/wheels, tpms parameters, lights, locks. Everything without issue. Recently I tried to program a key on a Grand Cherokee (push start proximity key) and ran into a problem. Emailed support and had the issue resolved right away and was able to program it. Great app and great support, 5 stars all the way.

Best App for anyone that wants the power of the dealership software capabilities. Make sure your vehicle is on the list of vehicles and manufacturers that AlfaOBD can sync with. For example you can get HUGE tires and instead of going to a dealer or aftermarket shop, to get the speedometer and everything on point with the new tire size. As well as changing certain restraints your vehicle came stock with. No point in using the free version besides making sure your car is on the list.
