Re: recommended obd2 adapter?

Someone on the I oniq Hybrid Forum tried to use this adapter (It is already in the Not Recommended list.)
- Anybody try to use Torque Pro?

Image

It didn't respond to ELM327 Identifier. It doesn't and cannot work. Avoid these cheap clones.

But I tested my Konnwei KW902 with ELM327 Identifier.

Image

It works. But, it is also a clone. It reports to be the non-existent v1.5.
There is some interesting info here about the Chinese cloning of the ELM327 firmware -

Here's some details from a user testing the OBDlink LX adapter.

Image

When tested with ELM327 Identifier it shows.

Image

But it fails with a Null Pointer Exception when trying to run alOBD Terminal.

Image

I will stick to recommending the Konnwei KW902 adapter.

FAIL for the Wifi OBD2 v1.5 (KW903 clone) ... too bad because, in the other side, the button ON/OFF work great (real mosfet) and the Wifi link is fast (more than my Bluetooth adapter).

Sometime, for a little than less 5 seconds ... it's OK (kWh and battery temperature only, the other PIDs are wrong).

So, this program : https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... identifier
It's perfect to see if it's a good adapter or not (without use Torque Pro).

Perfect, i has one in Wifi with ELM327 v1.5 standard frames recognized !

Image

Yes, the measures are more stable and fast in the Torque Dashboard reading ... but no more speed on logging (always 2 second cycles).

Look the number on the top of the captures, it's the Wifi speed (2 kb/s).
Drop to 0,8 kb/s when car is OFF (Charging job).

Mini-CD has been product in 2015 (provide with the Wifi OBD2 reader).

Some updated info on the Konnwei KW902 adapter. via the CanZE website.
Seems the problem with an incorrect resistor is fixed.
Many users here have also ordered recently and have received working adapters.

Dongle trouble #5
September 14, 2017
When I got home tonight the KONNWEI dongle I ordered on August the 29th had arrived directly from China.

I ordered it here. Less than 9 euros.

It had the proper 120 ohm resistance on the CANbus. Next, I opened it up and it is the new design, i.o.w., it seems like the error was found and new production runs are OK. Of course we don’t know how many old supplies there are and if by chance I got the top of a just replenished stack. YMMV.

Note in the previous post that the problem started occurring already in April. I didn’t know this but at least there is a fair chance the problem dongles are sort of slowly going out of stock.

I think I got a headache just be reviewing all the past posts on the best scanning tool to use for SOUL EV (2015 is what I got).

Without using formulae on a spreadsheet or logging trips for calculations...

1) is there a simple way to determine the vehicle's battery SOH so that I can determine how bad degradation is on my vehicle?


2) So far what I got from past posts on this thread is that the 2 most recommended scan tools for KIA SOUL EV appear to be either...

https://www.amazon.com/ScanTool-426101- ... 006NZTZLQ/

or

https://www.amazon.com/CC-JJ-EXCEL-ELM3 ... 01C8VJHF2/


3) Is it guaranteed on the KIA's standard 10-yr warranty to replace the battery if it drops below 75%?

4) When I take my KIA SOUL EV in for service, am I able to get a detailed report on the condition on each and every one of the 96 cells?

quick question ( I've got a Hyundai Ioniq Electric and apparently they need the same adapter).

Are there Bluetooth 4 (BLE) adapters that work as well? Low power would be nice...

Thank you very much,
Christoph
