Android app works with BT and JDM


Recommended Posts

After ages waiting for torque to work with my jdm car I have found an android app that works called car guage it doesn't have all the same features the same features that torquel has but it works and also the pro version shows code engine codes and allows you to clear them the pro version cost 4 pound

 

I have a 2003 japanese import and 1 of the ebay 15 pound bluetooth OBD adaptors

Cheers, Yeah theres a free version but lots of the features are locked down and didnt seem as stable.

 

I just downloaded all the free ones i could find and this one worked you have to select nissan > ecm gasoline > ecu adress 10 on the connection and it should connect

I started looking as i had given up on torque ever working and thought if i couldnt find anything i would buy something like a data scan but came across that yesterday before a ebay shopping trip occurred

 

Yeah sure does give us JDM owners more options

I have a few similar apps via my Pioneer Appradio so for a few quid happy to take a punt see if it will work as also have a galaxy tab kicking around I can revert to

 

One very noob question - where do you plug in the OBD reader ? and is it designed so its plugged in and left or just do the diagnostics and remove ?

There is a reason why this will work with some JDM'S not not others.

 

Mine is 2003 import says 2002 on books?

We can see that Mudman has Uprevved, I think this changes the way the ecu talks to the device. or they swapped ecu from the original JDM ECU.

There is some information about Nissan Consult.

 

 "In Japan this standard is not mandatory. So RHD cars produced for the Japanese market in the majority do not support the OBDII standard. If the Japanese make a car for the US/EU/Chinees market, they add support of OBDII standard."

 

OBD2 plugs are fitted on European cars as they have to confirm to European legislation and all use the same obd2/3/4 software, but as Japan aren't in Europe they don't have to conform , so although they fitted obd sockets they do not run obd2/3/4 software.

 

Calling the 16pin socket an OBD II socket is technically wrong and causes confusion but alas that's what its called,

OBD II is another protocol,

you may as well talk French to your Nissan ECU as it understands French as much as it does OBD II, you need to talk to it in Consult.

Hello , been trying multiple WiFi, by OBD2 readers and finally got them to work on 350z JDM . Tried these expensive ones Obdlink LX, MX and cheap Amazon ones . Verdict : all work with different apps .

Obdlink LX, MX scanner works with Car gauge Pro and Motor Data  only.( Checked lots of different apps and these 2 apps successfuly established connection with ECU  , while OEM app didn't find protocol and manually changed to right one didn't work.

Cheap Amazon scanners do exactly the same job . 

Car Garage Pro - after installation tick Japan OBD and connect / Nissan/ECM Gasoline / engine 10. 

This should establish connection between ECU and scanner.

MotorData - first thing after installation you need to create profile for nissan z33 ( it's free for testing, after successful connection you have to buy plugin for £4.99) and you ready to connect , app will automatically find right protocol. 

 

Both apps have all you need . Car Gauge Pro fast live readings and MotorData great for diagnosis , let's you fully understand codes and all warning light etc . Thanks.
