Putty for OBD?

Postby Fixed until broken » Sat Nov 07, 2020 1:06 pm

Stupid question but is there some terminal like Putty I can use with Bafx or obdlink on PC. Both of them are bluetooth.
I wasn't sure where to post my dumb question so here I am lol.

I will throw a second question in here since I have your attention lol. If you wanted to talk GM class 2 with an arduino how would you do it? like not step by step but what would be your course of action. I did try a few projects off github but neither of them really worked at all... I feel like this one of those if you have to ask its out of your skillset. which is probably true. I just need a direction to go to start reading more.

you can literally use putty and connect to the device com port, then enter elm style commands in to the terminal.
Have you read the FAQ? For lots of information and links to significant threads see here: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=1396

I literally just logged in to delete this post because I realized that it is just serial over bluetooth. Didn't even know that was a thing :lol: sorry I am a dumbass lol. I figured it was something different because it was bluetooth.
