OBD

An OBD Adapter is an interface that connects your car with your phone/tablet, via Bluetooth, Wifi or USB.
Using the adapter, you can collect data about RPM, speed and other parameters of the car.

Full functionality of Hybrid Assistant is possible only by using the ODBLink LX adapter (http://www.obdlink.com/lxbt/).

Locate the OBD port on your car: usually it’s under the steering wheel.

Insert the OBD Adapter and bring the car to READY.

Perform Bluetooth pairing with the adapter, and you’re ready to go
