All Honda models (1992 - 2001 OBD1/2A/2B) that use the proprietary 3 pin or 5 pin DLC diagnostic connector are fully compatible and supported.

We encourage our customers to follow the compatibility guidelines prior to the item purchase, because of possible diagnostic connector differences between markets and model years. In case of United States / Canada market, the compatible 3 pin diagnostic connector was used only on OBD1 models ('92-'95), whereas the other markets (Europe, Japan, Australia, Brazil, Russia, etc...) saw usage of 3 pin (5 pin on some European models) on OBD1/2A/2B models ('91-'03).

Car models that use the 16 pin diagnostic connector, i.e. standard OBD2 socket (US/CA '96-, others '99-) are not supported at this moment.

Yes, it does work with some, for more details please refer to the general compatibility guidelines.

If you don't find the email confirming your placed order within 5 minutes please contact us, we'll resend it.

DLC diagnostic connector can be found in various locations under the dashboard.

Variants of OBD0 ('88-'91, some models until -'93) had only the 2 pin (SCS service check) connector for self-diagnostics purposes. It does not support diagnostics data transmission, thus you can NOT use Hondash scanner on such vehicles!

Some OBD1 models ('92-'95) don't have any power source in DLC diagnostic connector (3 pin style connector with only two wires connected to it, middle pin and wire are missing). In this case you have to wire the scanner to a custom power source.

Some late ('99-'00) EU Accord/Civic models (OBD2 versions) had only the 2 pin (SCS service check) connector, versions with the 5 pin diagnostic connector did not have the communication wire connected to it, the 3 pin / 5 pin diagnostic connectors were superseded by the standard OBD2 16 pin port located under the steering wheel (or somewhere else under the dashboard).

You can leave the scanner connected. However if you're not going to drive for a longer period (more than 2 weeks) it's recommended to disconnect it to prevent possible battery drain even though the power consumption is very small, if you power the scanner directly from the DLC connector, which is hot at all times.
For permanent installation it's recommended to use an ignition switched power source to power up the scanner.

Hondash is still in active development and the feature set is not finalized yet, nonetheless, there is already a lot of functions and features as described on the App & Guides page.

  • Oil Temperature - No, Honda engine does not have an oil temperature sensor
  • Oil Pressure - No, Honda engine does not have an oil pressure sensor, only a pressure switch
  • AFR - Air to Fuel Ratio - Yes, however the applied conversion of oxygen sensor voltage is based on a generic formula and not oxygen sensor manufacturer's specific data, therefore it's not guaranteed to be accurate and is intended for informational purposes only, you can however input your own calibration data following the guide for protocol configuration; to display AFR on Oxygen Sensor Parameter set "value of" to "Air Fuel Ratio" or "Lambda" instead of "Voltage" in the graph parameter assignment dialog (see gesture tutorial)
  • Fuel level - No, the fuel level sending unit is not connected to the ECU

No, Hondash can read diagnostic trouble codes from the engine control unit only.

We recommend using the self-diagnostics procedure to obtain the codes from ABS/SRS control units, as described in the service manual.
The possibility of communication with the ABS/SRS control units via a Hondash scanner will be investigated some time in the future.

Parameters that do not change (read constant arbitrary/zero value which may trigger alarm) are simply not supported by your ECU (e.g. some OBD1 '92-'95 vehicles don't support Fuel System Status FSS, Calculated Load Value CLV, Knock Sensor KS,...; cars with manual transmission usually don't have a BARO sensor, many EU models don't have the ELD, etc.). Simply ignore those readings as they're not relevant for your use case. Navigate to app settings → Car → Engine and enable/disable engine features to filter out unsupported parameters.

Long Term Fuel Trim (O2FT-LT) parameter reads 0 value on the majority of Honda vehicles from this era. The only explanation we can give you is simply that this is the way the engineers implemented the algorithm for calculating this parameter and it just returns 0 all the time, if the engine operates nominally.

Please follow the guide on Fuel consumption calibration and Gearbox calibration (section discussing gear detection range).

Currently, no, but the app will receive an update to support all ELM327 based scanners, ETA Q3/4 2024. However this will not be a replacement for the original Hondash scanner as the ELM327 supports only newer vehicles.

Yes, the app will support newer vehicles via 3rd party scanners that support or are directly based on ELM327 chipset, ETA Q3/4 2024. A proprietary Hondash scanner for 16-pin OBD2 socket is currently in a pre-development stage; full product development pending, TBA.

OS Android 4.4.4
CPU quad core processor
GPU OpenGL ES 2.0

Try to install the Hondash app from another source such as apkpure.net, or google "download hondash apk". The Google Play store sometimes incorrectly reports some devices as being incompatible.

Yes you can, however we don't guarantee that it will 100% work. Very small percentage of models and manufacturers, usually the Chinese ones, have strict policies and allow only very specific devices to pair with their head units, or their Bluetooth communication implementation does not comply with the established Android SDK standards. Because our primary development platform is the smartphone we don't offer any assistance regarding head units (brands inquiry, etc.).

No, however the support is being considered. Apple devices do not allow to use classic Bluetooth connection without the manufacturers of the product (us) enlisting to a special Apple's MFi program, thus, the only feasible way to connect to Apple devices is to use much slower BLE (Low Energy) connection method, about 3x to 5x times slower than the classic Bluetooth version. We can 100% say now that communication with the Hondash app on any Apple product would run much slower than what is achievable on any Android device currently, even the cheap ones. No further details available at this moment.
Since Hondash works with Android versions as old as 4.4.4 (2013) we suggest buying a cheap used device (~€30) to work around this issue and use it as a dedicated device for Hondash.

The app requires one-time internet access when you use a Hondash scanner for the first time, or update the app, or clear the app data. Once the online check is complete you can continue using the app without an internet connection.

  • if you use the official Hondash scanner, the app is free without any restrictions, but only for the first activated user account; each unit is provided with one free user license, which the app obtains automatically online and prompts you to activate your user account that you signed into; please be informed that you must claim the free license within 1 year from the purchase date otherwise it will expire. A claimed license does not have an expiration date and is permanently attached to the activated user account.
    • additional user account activation will require purchasing a new user license; that is if you purchase a used Hondash scanner or want to use multiple user accounts you will be required to purchase a new user license (via in-app purchase, €9.99 excl. tax) to unlock the app on each additional user account
    • users are authenticated via Google sign-in; in case the Android device does not have Google services an alternative sign-in method (email/password) will be provided automatically (users can opt to use this method instead of Google sign-in)
    • when using Google sign-in you can update your account information (email address, etc.) in your Google account dashboard; however when using alternative sign-in method (email/password) the email address, which identifies your account, is not updatable
    • you can use multiple Android devices and multiple vehicles with the same scanner; to use the scanner with multiple Android devices simply sign in with the same account (same email address) you used during the first time activation; as long as you are signing in with the same account on each Android device, you won't be required to purchase a new user license
    • you can use multiple scanners with the same account
  • No, the app is not free for a Hondata ECU (S300, KPro, FlashPro) or a HTS - eCtune - BMTune ECU; the app will ask you to purchase a license (via in-app purchase, €9.99 excl. tax); however you can use a free trial mode to test the app prior to the purchase. Thank you for your support.
