Automatic connections with Wi-Fi require at least one manual connection to the scan tool. OBD Fusion will store the name of the Wi-Fi network (SSID) at the time of the connection. Subsequently, if the phone is connected to this network when launching the app or when the app is running in the foreground, a connection to the scan tool will be automatically initiated.
Automatic connections to a Bluetooth LE adapter do not require a one-time manual connection. If a supported Bluetooth LE adapter is detected within a brief duration after launching the app, a connection to the scan tool will be automatically initiated.
Automatic Car Adapter
Automatic connections with the Automatic adapter require at least one manual connection to the scan tool. This is required to complete the authentication process required by the Automatic adapter. Subsequently, if the Automatic adapter is connected to the phone when launching the app or when the app is running in the foreground, the connection process will be automatically initiated. Note: the Automatic adapter has a power-saving feature that can prevent a successful connection if the power-saving mode on the adapter is currently active. This can result in a connection failure. If this occurs, it may be necessary to manually retry connecting once the adapter comes out of sleep mode.
How to Enable Automatic Connections
To enable automatic connections, go to Settings > Preferences > Communications. Under the “General” section, set Connection to “Automatic”.
