  • No, you can just leave it there. However if you're not going to drive for a longer period it's highly recommended to switch the interface off to prevent car battery drain. That is, only if you power the interface directly from DLC port which is hot at all times. More info on DLC Interface page.


  • The displayed engine Rpm is weird / not correct.

  • What is Hondash UID?
