OBD Link No Longer Working

Post by ricmorin »

Is there an issue with OBD Link and Mobile Manager? I can no longer save reports to the order. It always says it can't find the VIN when the VIN is clearly there.

The is an issue in Mobile Manager that will be fixed on the next update. Then it will work normally again.

Any update on either of these? I used the OBD Link quite a bit and really liked it, we have really been missing it lately.

When I click on Mobile Manager to save, I get a window that says 'Loading' but it hangs there. Not the same behavior prior where it used to not find the VIN.

Yes. I got out of the habit since the linking got broke. I used it again today for giggles only to find it was still broke. They still work as stand-alone scanners, though.
