I have just received my ELM327 OBD device from eBay. This is the cheap version. What drivers are you using? I seem to have some problems connecting, even with Scantool v1.13. Can you please give me some advice on what drivers/software to test the functionality of the device so that I can get it connected to this awesome plugin.
I think I solved the driver issue. Don´t know if it was necessary but I downloaded the newest stable drivers from FDTI and after that run Scantool with baudrate 38400 and then it worked. In other words I would love to have either this plugin with baudrate configurable or fixed to 38400.
Confirmed that cable works with Scantool, was able to read RPM etc (COM4, BAUDRATE 38400). But when trying this plugin I get Error: ELM not responding. I looked into the ELM class and saw that the baudrate is already 38400, this confuses me why doesn´t it work?
This is what I have done:
1. Unzipped the plugin onto my desktop (v.1.2)
2. Copied COM-files to system32
3. Downloaded debug application into same folder on my desktop
4. Ran the RunMe.bat file
5. Set the com port to 4 in ini file
Is this a possible way to test the plugin? The reason why I use my desktop as debug place is that I use my laptop to debug this with and when I get it working I will move it to my carputers roadrunner folder.
