Bluetooth OBDLink MX + has Class 2 Bluetooth.
For IOS, you need Class 4 Bluetooth or WiFI.

Thanks kdika. Can you recommend a Bluetooth adapter that works with HobDrive on iOS?

Adapters with bluetooth 4 should work. For example, Carista or viecar Bt 4.
Here is a photo of the insides of these adapters: https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtop ... p=94079225
If using viecar Bt 4 it may be necessary to remove the resistor: https://4pda.ru/forum/index.php?showtop ... p=93939282

PS. You can measure yourself with a multimeter between the adapter pins (6 and 14). Should be about 45-50kΩ

Thanks,

Couldn't get it working here. Although the MX+ supports iOS it is not BLE 4.0 so probably only works with apps that are registered with Apple to use the adaptor.

I think you'll need a BLE 4.0 adaptor to use Hobdrive with iOS.

Hobdrive does work with the MX+ on Android - that's where I used it. (I don't use it any more as I sold my Ion!)

In that case, I think I’ll try and scrounge an old Android tablet to leave in the car, rather than roll the dice on a new adapter.

I'm using my adaptor (first with Canion and Hobdrive, now with Leafspy as I now own a Leaf) on my son's Amazon Fire HD 8 but it's a bit of a pain as Fire OS has to be hacked a bit to get Google Play apps on it and the Bluetooth support in FireOS is a bit flaky so I'm thinking of picking up a cheap Samsung or Generic Android tablet of my own for use with the car and he can have his back. :D

Another advantage of you staying with the MX+ and picking up a cheap Android device is then you'll be able to run Canion, which has many great features. Some features overlap Hobdrive but it has a much better UI for the things which both apps do especially in terms of graphing data over time (miles/kWh, heater power use etc etc) and cell voltage display.

Although it doesn't read or clear fault codes Canion does provide a lot of live data which is useful for troubleshooting especially traction battery cell issues.

Hi Serhge!

I have a registered version of Hobdrive running on Android. It works fine, but still could not figurate it out, how the voltage smoothing/balancing tool could work. I get a failure message, than notting happens.
My proceedure:
1. start the car and pair the devices on bluetooth 2. start the program and pair with the car 3. stop the car with turning the ignition key to the last position - so the power still remains in the circuit and the program communicates with the ECU (otherwise no connection possible, if i just begin to load the car) 4. start chargng the car, the cells are under 3,8V as formerly described 5. start the smoothing page and try to start the application function. No other screen appears, just the button gets red/green/grey ... and i get somethimes the error message: "Can't invoke: BMU_CellVoltageSmoothingStart" . While standard charging the car the status of cell smoothage goes from off to on, but i guess this is anyway happening from BMU and it's not because the application.

How can i start the balancing function?


2. Second question: i removed the front seat and then got the airbag warning light on. Is there a possibility in the program to clear the warning light?

It's a 2011 C-Zero;

Thanks for feedback :-)

Try to select ECU Type in the settings:
-Mitsubishi SRS only DTC KWP
or
-Mitsubishi SRS only DTC CAN

Hi, i downloaded the newest beta version, but do not have this options. I have following ECU types for Mitsubishi:

Mitsubishi 4M41 (Pajero)
Mitsubishi CVT+OBD2 CAN
Mitsubishi iMiEV Li-ION
Mitsubishi iMiEV Li-Titanate
Mitsubishi ?imicab iMiEV LI-ION 2014
Mitsubishi MUT
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV+OBD

where to get that additional ECU types?
