Disconnection Error with XTool iOBD2 BMW Diagnostic Tool

I bought my Xtool iOBD2 BMW diagnostic tool for iphone/ipad on shop on-line several days ago.I came across some troubles during the connection. After communicating with customer service Olivia, my problem was solved successfully. This is the dialog.

Dear Olivia:
Good morning. How are you today? I’m Dennis. I bought Xtool BMW diagnostic tool on your shop, cardiag.co.uk. I’m satisfied with the fast delivery, complete package and good price, but there is something wrong with it now.
My vehicle model is BMW X5. This is my operation process.
At the beginning, the Bluetooth connection was normal and activation was also successful.
Xtool-BMW-diagnostic-tool-1 Xtool-BMW-diagnostic-tool-2
The connection seems well, but the following error “the connection has been disconnected, please reconnect” appeared.

Xtool-BMW-diagnostic-tool-3

Then I tried other apps with the same problems. I have no idea about what to do next. Please help me!

Dear Dennis?
This is not a thorny problem.You just need to give me serial number of your device. Our engine will check which type of your diagnostic tool is, iobd2 bmw or iobd2 obd. Actually, the most important point is that you have to choose the matched app according to your device. Because you choose the fault app, your connection is failed.

Mini ELM327 Bluetooth scanner test drive on Volvo C30 T5

Honestly, kind of worried about items within $10, even free shipping… I believe it’s risky to do so. And now, alarm free 😀

my model:

Volvo C30 T5

i used:

SAMSUNG Android

ELM327 interface for $7.99

Things i did:

First, plug in ELM327 under the dash on the drivers side

mini-elm327-obd2-scanner-4 mini-elm327-obd2-scanner-3

pair it with my SAMSUNG phone

Pairing is very simple… The phone will search for the unit.. Then when it finds it, press it and start the pairing process.

start the APP

NitroOBD2 Chip Tuning Box Different Vehicle Tested

This is the test uobd2 did for Nitroobd2 chip tuning box working on vehicles— ISUZU, TOYOTA, NISSAN, Mazda.

Some tested report:

Used Nitroobd2 performance chip tuning tool to set up the fluid flow around the box

When it is plugged into OBD2 connector, NitroOBD2 receives the information from the car computer ECU. With the received data from ECU, NitroOBD2 adjusts the boost pressure, quantity of fuel, injection timing and pressure to increase the performance of your car.

nitro-isuzu-3  nitro-isuzu-2

Installed Nitroobd2 tuning box the Fortuner diesel hot stick and then see the results good drivers speeding driver hit economy does not escalate into it… nitro-toyota nitro-toyota-2

NitroOBD2 tool worked on Nissan for light throttle acceleration.

Installed NitroObd2 box on the Mazda 3, then press the accelerator gently up to 207 km/h

After driving 200 km road total, NitroOBD2 adjusts itself to the car, according to the drivers’ habits and always keeps remaping the ECU to increase the performance of engine.

……

Above is some of vehicles we tested, and uobd2 factory will go to test NitroOBD2 device on more vehicles.

Tested conclusion:

“NitroOBD2 Chip Tuning Box is very easy to use.”

Plug NitroOBD2 into OBD2 connector of your car. And turn the ignition on for 30 seconds. And Turn the engine on. NitroOBD2 settings are optimal and the best for your car. Even the parameters are different for each vehicle, there might not be a need to make an additional adjustment. NitroOBD2 will recognize your vehicle and your driving habits after around 200 km/150 miles driving, and then NitroOBD2 adjusts itself to match your car perfectly.

NitroOBD2 Chip Tuning Box works on the basis of changing the signal form ECU. As a consequence, it changes the whole injection map.

The main difference between NitroOBD2 Chip Tuning Box and Remapping tuning methods is that NitroOBD2 Chip Tuning Box is easily removable, and after unplug you go back to the factory settings. EcoOBD2 is the cheap and safe type of tuning. Remapping is a permanent change to your car. This is the expensive tuning and you cannot remove it.

X-tool iOBD2 OBD2 code scanner for iOS/Android Report

The iOBD2 WIFI or Bluetooth OBD2/EOBD auto code scanner for Apple iOS (iPhone, iPAD, iTouch)/Android is developed by X-tool TECH.

 

Iobd2 code reader isn’t only a diagnostic reader, this powerful little unit also provides data logging, and a great dashboard which includes your vehicles current MPG, RPM, and so much more. Following are basic information and review gathered to lead to a better understanding of the OBD?adapter.

 

?General Info.

 

iOBD2 software (for BMW, VAG etc) works with most 1996 and & newer model year cars and light trucks (OBDII & CAN)-domestic and imported.

 

Vehicle model:

1.1996 or newer North American cars

2.2001 or newer European Union cars

3.2004 or newer Asian cars

iobd2-iphone-android-obd2-code-scanner-1

You are free to choose from the three main features of the app once enter the main menu:

—Diagnosis

—Dashboard

—Performance (Performance gauges, fuel economy gauges, engine gauges)

iobd2-iphone-android-obd2-code-scanner-2

XTool iOBD2 OBD2 scan tool Diagnostics

The Diagnosis page allows you to read DTCs, clear DTCs, Display DTCs, guide maintenance, live data, freeze frame data, readiness test, Oxygen Sensor test, EVAP System test etc. It is the main function designed for the scanner

X-Tool iOBD2 OBD2 adapter Performance

The iOBD2 Performance screen allows you to test to see your cars acceleration, distance travelled, and a time – this would only be suitable for track (Racetrack Mapping).

XTool iOBD2 OBD?interface Dashboard

The iOBD2 Dashboard provides what a usual car dashboard would show, giving the driver the vehicles current speed, RPM, MPG. This section of the app would be great for those vehicles who do not have a trip computer fitted as standard. I know some of the older Ford drivers will love to have something like this in their Focus RS MK1, to keep an eye on the correct car temperatures and intake temperatures.

IOBD2 Bluetooth/WIFI adapter “Good points”

1. Smart Design

2. Easy to use

3. Directly plug, no wires

5. Support both iOS and Android system

Need to do some configuration when connecting WIFI or repairing Bluetooth

 

 

Rev and DashCommand iOS app, which is better for OBD?Scanner

There are a couple of iOS apps that wirelessly connect to ELM327 OBscan tool through an ad hoc network (WANET). The two most highly rated iOS apps appear to be Rev and Dashcommand. But which is the best to work with these OBD scanners? Let’s explore it.

NOTE:

Torque Pro is an Android based app to work with Bluetooth ELM327 adaptors.

Rev:

Rev is an application for the iPhone and iPod Touch to work with wifi elm327 scanners that monitors, displays, and records real-time vehicle data by communicating directly with your vehicle’s ECU via its OBD-II port.

Rev can monitor and record several vehicle metrics in real-time:

Detect Engine codes

Readiness Monitors

Freeze Frame Data

Vehicle Speed (including 0-60 time)

RPM

Fuel Consumption

Engine Coolant Temperature

Fuel Pressure

Car battery voltage

*Supported metrics are specific to vehicle make and model.

 

What Rev app cannot do:

Do not read VIN

DashCommand:

DashCommand is a touch screen friendly software app for iPhone and iPod touch and is designed to work with wifi OBD2 interfaces.

Detect Engine codes

Readiness Monitors

Freeze Frame data

Vehicle Speed (including 0-60 time)

Display live data (Timing,Coolant temp,MAP,Lambda,AFR,O2 Sensor,Intake temp, Ambient Temp, Catalyst temp, MAF, and Fuel Pressure etc)

RPM

Detect horsepower, torque or acceleration in real time

Monitor and improve your gas mileage

Fuel consumption

Skid pad

Race Track

Inclinometer

 

The Difference between Rev and DashComand based on customer’s feedback:

1) Rev app can read and clear DTCs. But DashCommand with OBD cable can read faults codes but cannot clear them.

2) DashCommand seemed to be a little better with real RPM’s, intake temps, coolant temps, timing, MAF, and MAP

3) DashCommand seems to be working harder to add nice little touches and features to their app. It support frequently update.

4) DashCommand has more live data options than Rev app.

5) Rev is currently priced at $39.99

DashCommand can be free download at uobdii.com.
