Know your vehicle better
The vehicle in your garage can be as smart as your phone. Turn your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or tablet into a sophisticated diagnostic scan tool and real-time performance monitor. The OBDCheck BLE directly plugs into your vehicle and connects to an OBD II App on your iOS or Android device via Bluetooth. Whenever you have a check engine light on or want to see how your car is performing, the OBDCheck BLE will be a very useful gadget for you.
Compatible with iOS & Android
Unlike normal Bluetooth adapters that only work with Android, the OBDCheck BLE also work with iOS devices via Bluetooth LE (no Bluetooth pairing is needed). It is also better than WiFi versions with much lower power consumption while allowing you to have access to internet for other apps via your cellular data without complex setting. You can also connect to the car Bluetooth at the same time.

Troubleshoot common problems
1. Have trouble connecting to your phone?
(1) For iPhone, remember NOT to connect VEEPEAK from the Bluetooth Settings. As it uses Bluetooth LE, pairing is not needed and instead it will lead to an error. You just start the app to connect and the Bluetooth connection will be made through the app.
– What if I have tried to connect through the Bluetooth Settings and VEEPEAK no longer shows up?
Please restart your iPhone and VEEPEAK will show up again.
(2) For Android phones, here are a few things to try:
– Turn off Bluetooth and turn it back on.
– Restart your phone. Turn off WiFi. Disconnect any other Bluetooth devices from your phone.
– Clear Bluetooth cache/storage: Settings – Apps (show system) – Bluetooth – Storage & Cache, clear and restart the phone.
(3) Pairs with Android phone but disconnects quickly.
If VEEPEAK is paired with your Android phone, but only shows as paired or previously connected, don’t worry, normally it’s still connected. You just start the app and select VEEPEAK as the Bluetooth device to connect.
2. App could not connect to the Veepeak device.
– Make sure the App is compatible.
– Correct App connection settings are made (see user manual).
– Remove the app and re-install it (especially you have a system update).
– Try with another app, for example Car Scanner ELM OBD2 (free).
3. Could not connect to the vehicle/ECU.
– Make sure vehicle is OBD2 compliant and the device is plugged in well (not too loose or tight).
– Ignition is turned ON (or start the engine to try).
– Try on another vehicle or with another App (for example Car Scanner ELM OBD2).
