This is the first I've heard about OBDLink LX. I have been successfully using Torque Pro and a generic ELM327 adapter to monitor my vehicle info. (up until recently when my OBD 2 adapter will no longer connect in my RL or Pilot, only connects to my old '99 Civic).
For $50, I might be willing to try it out. Any comparisons to Torque Pro?
Here is what I found. Hint: I wear a Pebble Steel connected watch (bluetooth).
On the Torque home page (where you can access realtime info, fault codes, map view, etc.) there is a menu buttton where you can view/change settings, vehicle profile, and quit.
Under settings, the 5th choice down is OBD2 adapter settings. Under bluetooth settings, there is an option to choose bluetooth device. When I looked at that, I found 2 choices, my Pebble Steel and my OBD2 adapter, neither of which was checked.
Once I checked the box for the OBD2 adapter, it connected within seconds and resumed normal operation.
That being said, it defies logic why the old Civic connects right away with TPro and never has an issue. I'll be driving the Civic in an hour or so and will check this to see if that OBD2 adapter stays checked.
When I switch vehicles, I typically have to unpair from the OBD2 adapter in one vehicle and pair to the adapter in the vehicle in the next vehicle I'm driving. That's somewhat inconvenient, but I figure is the price I pay for using these cheap $10 ELM327 adapters.
With the new OBD2Link LX adapter coming, I hope that will not be an issue for the Ridgeline any longer.
And since my vehicles all use the 9141-2 protocol, I turned off the scan by selecting that protocol for all 3 vehicle profiles.
Has anybody been able to get a reader to give Tranny temps?
I received a BlueDriver unit today. https://www.bluedriver.com/
I'm pretty sure their website said I could get tranny temps during my pre-purchase scan of their site. I was able to pair both my Android phone &Tablet but it will only connect to the Tablet. I needed to do a firmware update to get it working with my Ridgeline.
I'm now trying to figure out if it is me, the BlueDriver unit / app or my devices that are causing the problem.
In the meantime, I've passed it over to the better half to give a try with her Apple stuff on an older Benz.
