Don't get it :o

Thanks for reporting that. Did you get the warning message that says it does not support a required AT command?

I have just ordered on for testing.


I did get the message. I could send you this unit if you want to cancel your order. Let me know.

Thanks!

Yes that would help. The last three times I tried to get a 2.1 for testing I received a 1.5. PM me and I will give you the address to send it too. Thanks.

Did you receive the unit and will it help with the app?

Thanks!

I ordered this unit with the hope that it would be version 1.5, but it was another 2.1. :cry:

I have had the best results with the 'Mini'.

I bought what looks to be the same device from ebay seller "l.g.brother":

http://www.ebay.com/itm/OBD2-ELM327-V1- ... 27dd901773

The Leaf Spy app. is showing that this device is version 2.1. It seems like it's kind of a crapshoot which version you get, even if it says V1.5. Jim, do you (or anyone else for that matter) have a verified ELM327 V1.5 that you would like to sell? Or can anyone make a recommendation on a particular device / seller that is reliably V1.5?

Thanks,
Gary

So, if I can verify with a seller that the ELM327 has 3 boards instead two, this would be indicative of a V1.5 - correct?

I have several ELM327 devices that are sold as 1.5 but are reported by the app as 2.1. So no luck to get them working
Will the Scantool BDLINK LX work? While more expensive, I can at least rely on it being genuine.

This is the one I ended up going with. It is one of the devices listed on the wiki page. It was about $24.00 before shipping, and it is bulky - i.e. probably not good for leaving plugged in when driving and during ingress/egress, as it hangs down into the footwell and most likely would get kicked unless you are extremely careful.

Let us know if it is v1.5 Gary. I am still withholding purchasing another as I have ordered to v2.1 and I'm hesitant to get another unless I know it is 1.5.

Thanks!

Yes, it comes up as V1.5 on the Leaf Spy screen.
