  • Diagnostics tool for Nokia Symbian

    Almost ready with DTC codes (shows in hex at the moment)

    or if you have "Need for Speed"

    I received info that the tool was interesting, but wasn't telling enough.

    OK: the tool works on a Symbian Nokia Telephone and connects to a Bluetooth ELM OBD-II device.
    - it will then allow one to diagnose problems when it is finished.

    Displays more than just hex now

    - at some stage I will write in serial support so it can also communicate with an ELM

      Will this work with the Elmscan 5?

        - if the bluetooth can be connected to by your Nokia
        - and Elmscan 5 supports your car
        - and if the Elmscan used an original ELM 327 chip

        My program does not require a specific manuafacturer of an "ELM" device that uses an ELM 327 chip.

        This is the last time I answer this sort of question.

        My main hardware support is for:
        in german
        in english
        as I have one and activly fix bugs if it doesn't work.

        Any other device: ask the supplier.

          Thanks for that. I'l go for the hardware you link to, it's cheaper too!

          I have version 1.0.38 installed and working on my Nokia N78. That already has Python 1.04 instaled on it. When I tried to install later versions of Python I get a "Cannot instal, component is built in" error.

          Anything I can do to support development I wil.

            My wife just got an N86 8M so I will see if I can install on N series
            - I usually have E series

            I seem to remember you have to deinstall old versions of python when going from "old" python to new ...

            If you are a windows user, go for the windows setup file

              Ah, just spotted the "uninstall old versions of Python" stuff. Will try tomorrow. What's the latest and best version to install on Symbian V60 3?


              • #8
                I'm afraid I have to report, after tryng every version of Python from 1.9.0 onwards that they all throw up the same error on my Nokia N78, "Unable to install, component built-in."

                The only version of Python I have found that works is 1.04 with SysBTElm V1.0.38

                  Will it work with ElmCanII-WLAN?

                  I see that you definitely support the ECII-BT-INT (ElmCanII Bluetooth Intern).. which is nice.. but I find myself desiring the WLAN version so that the iPhone app "Rev " will also work... So, is there any chance that symbtelm will work with the ElmCanII-WLAN device? Either now or sometime in the not-too-distant future?

                    Another Symbian OBD-II

                    - works for me and does what I need
