ScanMyOpel supports ELM327-based Bluetooth/WiFi interfaces on all Android devices. Please note - could be compatibility issues with some noname ELM327 interfaces. If you are experiencing problems with establishing stable connection with the ELM327 interface, please send us logs files for troubleshooting.

Recommended ELM327 version is 1.4/1.4+. Proper connection with Chinese versions of ELM327, other then 1.4 is not guaranteed. Recommended interface - ObdLinkMX.
Dont use cheap Chinese v2.1 ELM adapters, they in most of the case will not be able to work properly with our application.

Additional info on recommended interfaces:

In case of any issues with app it is possible to save log and forward it on for troubleshooting. From application's slider menu it is possible to enable logging as well as to send logs to us.

Please connect together pins 7, 3 , 12 and 8 in your ELM 327 interface.
On some model diagnostic of AT/ABS can be connected to pin 3 or 12 in the OBD plug. Since in ELM only used pin 7, you may not get connected to other modules.

Your comments and feedback are welcomed!

Refused connection. Would not connect to 3 different obd2 devices all of which work with other apps with no issues. Couldn't comment on the functions of the software because it failed at step 1.

Hello Sean, still not clear, when it fails and what message do you have. Also the fact, that your 3 different work fine with other apps does not mean anything. Since our application uses original Opel protocol, it requires very high quality elm327 adapters, preferably with original chip. Thanks.

Hi, I've tried the app with the Bluetooth obd scanner with my 2014 insignia ecoflex but it won't connect with some of the software. Would it be the app or the Bluetooth OBD adapter? If so which OBD adapter can you recommend. Thank you.
