To connect your Android phone/tablet to your iMiEV a Wifi or Bluetooth OBD adapter is required. For iOS only Wifi OBD adapters are supported. The iMiEV is quite fussy about the OBD so for EvBatMon we recommend Scantools LX or MX for the best connection.

Thanks Dom for that explanation. I never knew it worked like that.
I looked up the software you recommended and I need the obd ii bluetooth dongle to be able to communicate with the iMiev computer. I went on eBay and found a variety of dongles with varying extremes in price. I read also that one has to be careful as not all the dongles will work on the iMiev. What model number did you buy?

ScanTool LX , but beware of fakes and cheap clones on ebay--only a real LX will work.

Thank you all for your help. I am now more serene that I do have a problem in the battery but that I was relying too much on an inaccurate meter.

Have a nice day

Chris.
