  • Where is the DLC diagnostics connector located?

  • Displayed engine revs [Rpm] are incorrect / e.g. needle moving backwards
  • Try to change the rev interpretation method in Settings / Car / Ecu. There are 3 possible methods to calculate engine rev value, depending on the car's Ecu, usually OBD2A method 0, OBD1 method 1 (e.g. Ecu P28 requires method 1 to display engine rpm correctly). 

  • My DLC connector is missing the power wire

  • Do I have to disconnect Hondash from DLC port after I'm done driving?
  • No, you can just leave it there. However if you're not going to drive for a longer period it's highly recommended to disconnect the interface to prevent possible car battery drain. That is, only if you power the interface directly from DLC port which is hot at all times. More info on power management can be found here.

  • App is unable to discover the Hondash Interface via Bluetooth
  • try to discover/pair the interface manually using the Android built-in Bluetooth manager. In that case look for a new device with name "HONDASH" or "OBD", the pairing pin is 1234.
    If you still can't discover the interface, try to use another Android device. You can even use any bluetooth equipped non-android device to test if you can discover the interface with it. Some devices have issues communicating with each other for unknown reasons.
