Hope this is just operator error, but here goes. I have a 2017 Explorer XRT and I tried a bluetooth OBD link that I use on my other vehicles. The devices is an OBDLink MX+ Bluetooth (http://www.obdlink.com/mxbt/). The computer is running Windows 10 Home. I have used it on my other vehicles with no problem so I'm pretty sure that it is connected to the computer correctly. When I check the Comm port in the device manager it is assigned to Comm 6, which appears on the TT v2.5 as an option. However, when I try to connect it I get two messages, "Comm 6 open" in green, and "Can't connect to OBD Interface!" in red. Key is on and kill switch is on. According to their website the devices is compatible with ELM327, ISO 15765-4, and ISO 9141-2. I read through this thread to make sure that you hadn't already addressed this specific issue, but didn't see anything that helped, so I have a question.

Is this OBD device just not compatible or am I simply doing something stupid that prevents the connection?

Is there another comm port listed? Often Bluetooth devices install 2 ports and you have to find out which one works.

It's my understanding the Triumph OBD port is not "true" OBD like what is used on cars. The connector is the same. But it's a unique software interface, which is why we have the Tigertool and not just regular OBD2 software.

So.. I have been following this...I was wondering if anyone had successfully downloaded Tiger Tool v2.5 onto an Android tablet instead of using a laptop

Thanks

Nope. It's a Windows app so won't run on Android. It could easily be ported over (which would be good) but I don't have any experience writing for Android and certainly don't have the time to learn.

You could of course try installing WINE or similar on your Android device and give that a go.

You are thinking of Linux.
On Android, wine is just about the stuff we drink.

No idea if something like this would work:
