Hondash Bluetooth Interface pairing

  • Before initiating the pairing make sure the Hondash interface's status LED is blinking. If that is not the case, check for a blown fuse (Under hood fuse/relay box, nr.43, 7.5A, ceiling light/cargo area light/DLC connector/Power antenna).
    (If the diagnostic connector is missing the +12V power wire you must first wire the Interface as described in power management options)
  • Automatic pairing
    • On devices running Android KitKat (4.4.4) and newer versions, the pairing is fully automated in the app.
  • Manual pairing
    • Hondash Interface pairing PIN is 1234
    • use the Android Bluetooth manager to pair the Hondash interface, search for a new device with name "HONDASH" or "OBD", after pairing navigate to Hondash app settings → Bluetooth Interface and make sure the "OBD" or "HONDASH" is selected under "Hondash Interface".
  • Please be aware, when using Android Head units (2DIN stereo car radio) you may have to pair the Hondash interface manually using the Manual pairing procedure described above.
    Depending on the model you also may have to enable the "Head Unit Bluetooth" switch in the Hondash app settings after successful pairing.
    However it's not guaranteed to work. Some head units manufacturers simply have strict policies and allow only very specific devices to pair with their head units. In worst case scenario you'll have to use a regular smartphone or switch to another Head unit brand.
    Because our primary development platform is the smartphone we're not able to provide any further assistance (radio brands inquiry, etc.)
  • the app will request a Hondash UID (Unique Identification Number - sent via email on shipping day) after pairing.
