Voice control functionality is now standard to obdCANeX Lite! We have also continued to decrease overall vehicle response time as well - faster than your OEM Key-fob!
obdCaneX Lite is an Android based application which allows full keyfob control functions of your vehicle. Including unlocking and locking of doors, activation of your panic alarm, remote starting and shutting off of your engine (if OEM equipped remote start capability is activated).
Please read the 3 requirements listed below:
1. This application has been developed for use with and requires ScanTool’s Bluetooth OBDLink MX module (Wifi or Bluetooth). You can purchase the module directly from obdCANeX (http://obdcanex.com/o/hardware/obdlink-mx), or if you purchase obdCANeX, Lite, a link is provided in-App which will give you FREE SHIPPING. This module plugs into your OBDII port and is needed for our app to communicate with your car. If you already own an OBDLink MX Bluetooth or Wifi module, please make sure your has firmware update 3.0 and above installed. http://www.scantool.net/downloads/updates/obdlink_mx/
2. GM vehicle 2007-2012 (some 2007/2012 model vehicles are not currently supported. Please e-mail us with any questions of applicability).
We are currently testing other makes, models, and year groups and will post a list of compatible vehicles as they become verified. We do have a Dodge Journey, 2013 tested and added in for basic key-fob functionality (NO REMOTE START yet on the Dodge...)
3. A Android phone with touch-screen and BlueTooth capability is required.
Future obdCANeX releases will be available soon with more features. Please visit http://www.obdcanex.com for more information. Upgrade options for existing customers of the obdCANeX Lite version will be available.
Please send us an e-mail with any questions and we will be happy to assist you further.
