Ty a lot for the help..... Going to try it

Well, closing down some of the reports in Canion didn't stop my phone from losing connection with the LX from Scan tool.
I guess next time I'll try shutting them nearly all off but the trip recorder and see where that gets me.

blackheart,
I have the same issues with Canion and S4 and have them for more than a year now. I put my S4 into the little tray just below the LX and even there it doesn't stay connected for more then 15min.
The 137 update is even worth in that when I scroll through the screens, it freezes or shows me a black screen. I have to restart the S4, ending the Canion will not do it. The 136 didn't have that many issues with the S4.
I even replaced the LX once.
Regards,

blackheart

Thanks Carsten,
I was thinking about getting a tablet that would just stay with the car - but not till I could get thus issue solved.
But if it's the phone, maybe I will try it with another device first.
Thanks!

I still have the ongoing issue with CaniOn in that the connection between the phone and the OBDLink LX gets messed up and I need to remove the bluetooth pairing between them and re-pair for CaniOn to work again. What I don't know is that if it's an issue with CaniOn, the 2nd gen Moto G or the OBDLink LX module. It happens somewhat randomly and just two days ago it happened during an hour long continuous drive.

For a while, it seemed like the LX was more reliable than the MX. My MX Bluetooth has been working pretty well lately. After about a week or so, I have to unplug/replug it for my radio to connect, but the connections are usually pretty good, as long as my Pebble isn't trying to connect.

So far, I've run CaniOn successfully on:

Samsung Galaxy S Captivate
Samsung Galaxy S III
Acer Iconia A500
Motorola Droid Turbo
Newsmy Carpad II NU3001 (head unit)

Of all of these devices, the S III was the most unreliable for running CaniOn continuously. I had several disconnects when trying to record my first quick charge. Maybe there is something different with the S II and S III that makes Bluetooth unreliable?

ok, I must be doing something wrong. I tried my wife's old Galaxy S3. Worked fine all the way from home up to the little service station that I stop at a few times a week for coffee. When I got back in and started up the car, the phone wouldn't connect to the LX. Said it was the wrong passcode.
Anyone have issues with this? If I am going to use the app (and I want to) I would like it to just work. The phone/tab to connect and stay connected when I get in the car. The app looks like it works fine - but it is staying connected to the LX is what seems to be giving me the issues.
Anyone??
Thanks

My MX went through a phase where it kept complaining about a passcode. I can't remember exactly what caused it, but I think it's because another device was in range that was paired with the MX.

What I did was make sure that no other phones/tablets that have been used with the OBDLink are nearby with Bluetooth turned on. I also removed the OBDLink from these devices. Make sure no other apps are trying to connect with a bluetooth device (Pebble watch for instance, also any bluetooth headsets/headphones). Finally, I left the OBDLink unplugged for about a minute or so, removed the OBDLink from my primary device, plugged the OBDLink back in, and re-paired the MX to the device (my head unit in this case). It's been working good ever since.

As a quick fix, turn off bluetooth on any phones or tablets in the car, delete the OBDLink from the device you run CaniOn on, press the button on the OBDLink and re-pair your CaniOn device.

If it's still giving you trouble after this, I'd try to do a warranty claim on it and see if you can get another LX or possibly a Bluetooth MX.

Bonsoir,
Canion works fine on Obdlink LX and Newsmy NU 3001 (but GPS is not working any more on my HU)...

Sometimes, I just need to pair again the BT...

In my opinion, canion 137 is definitely the best (functions & stability with any android device)...

Most of the troubles I see here, are coming from BT connexions between obd2 interface and android devices...


Canion is acting also perfectly with Nexus7(2013) and Samsung Note4 with Obdlink Lx on my car (of course, only one at a time).
