Re: hobdrive - and i-MIEV ion zero, show electronic control units, reset errors

A quick question for Serhge - I already own the Android version of Hobdrive and use it both with an OBDLink LX and OBDLink MX+.

However the Android device is a tablet and is often not in the car and I would sometimes like to take a quick reading (such as traction battery cell temperature) using my iPhone 11, which is always in the car with me.

The OBDLink LX is not iOS compatible however the MX+ is iOS compatible, and there is an iOS version of Hobdrive. However I have noticed that a lot of OBD-II diagnostic software on iOS does not support bluetooth dongles and only supports WiFi versions of dongles.

Can you confirm that Hobdrive for iOS supports the OBDLink MX+ over bluetooth ? Unfortunately I already "used" the demo of the iOS version of hobdrive long before I owned the OBDLink MX+ so I can't use the demo version to verify it works before purchasing as it now tells me the demo period is up. (Even though I got no real use from the demo as I didn't have a compatible OBD-II device at the time)

Thanks. :)

Hobdrive for iOS supports working with bluetooth 4 devices (BLE).
If there are any problems - write to the support@hobdrive.com

I don’t think the MX+ is BLE only “standard” Bluetooth, so I guess it won’t work then.

BLUETOOTH SPECIFICATIONS: Class 2 Bluetooth v3.0 transmission

MX+ will not work with ios.

With IOS will work BLE adapters
For example, Carista, Viecar 4 and others ...

Is there any particular reason why Hobdrive can't work with Bluetooth 3 adaptors on iOS when other apps can ? Especially when the same adaptor works with Hobdrive under Android.

dear! let's not confuse software and hardware capabilities! hobd is software and there is no difference with what it can work.
equipment that does not have physical capabilities, the problem is only in this equipment, specifically the problem concerns the apple trees

you need to ask such questions to the manufacturer of iPhones, with a claim about the impossibility of their devices to work with bluetooth protocols lower than 4.0!

an android device doesn’t have such problems
works well in any networks and protocols wifi and bluetooth

The same problem is with the OBD scanner, which cannot work with the bluetooth protocol higher than 3.0,
scanner with bluetooth protocol 4.0 and higher works well with iPhone

I hope you can read the manufacturer’s specifications that it attaches to their devices
