I have just bought a wifi obd scanner and using with iphone4. Iam having trouble connecting it to my civic cdti. I have used it on other cars with success. The car has been mapped and the map is locked. I have tried a few apps but just can't get it going on the civic I wanted to use my phone to try and log some data and see what boost am running.

Which app are you using ?
Have to sorted the connection settings properly ?
Can you read ECU codes using it ?

These scanners don't read/show the map itself, just sensor data the ECU reads, i wouldn't imagine it would make a difference being a locked map when using one of these

All new cars maybe OBDII but there is differnet versions of the protocol that the ECUs talk in.
Your OBDII reader might not be able to talk the same language ;)

On the iPhone, you need to set up a static ip address...

Go to wifi on your phone, select the wifi adaptor from the list of available wifi networks (mines CLK), then press the blue arrow, then in the next meny select 'Static' and enter:

IP Address: 192.168.0.11

Subnet mask: 255.255.255.0

Leave the other fields blank and then press 'WiFi Networks' on the top left to go back to the available networks, select your adaptor and exit setting :)

Should work now :)

What app are you using btw

Good old eBay I got my from the uk 45 delivered next day was advertised at £70 or best offer. From seller Omar.m786. Make sure it's wifi and not Bluetooth.I made this silly mistake iPhones don't do Bluetooth well not properly. Think there more for android phones. I seen £10 and thought wow that's cheap so bought it However it will work with the laptop so have left it down the garage for the lads to use and I keep my wifi 1 handy.

Try setting it as a kiwi in rev.
Just checked that's what it set to kiwi wifi. I can read fault codes. I had 1 stored from when I was doing the fuel filter. When I connect to rev the green box comes up in the top left with a tick and the voltage. But just won't let me read any data. Am go into the gauges click edit then swap then select air/fuel the boost has a green line under it click on boost then done. Am I going wrong any where

A lot of gauges are not supported by rev.. I prefer dash command and a lot of its gauges start working when you set up the vehicle profile ie curb weight, tyre size etc

is there an option to rescan available parameters ?
They normally have to interrogate the ECU to get valid ones before use.

I prefer Rev, but that's personal preference, both do the same job

Get everything plugged in and working the best you can, then unplug the wifi adaptor from the car and plug it back in, (rarely) mine takes two tries when its being fussy
