OK.
I see in the home page that the modded ELM327 is not supported anymore by forscan software.
So what would UK members recommend i buy to replace my modded ELM327?

Thanks.

OBDlink EX or the vGATE vLINKER FS which should both be available on Amazon if I am not mistaken! There are links on the FORScan Product Page here: https://forscan.org/download.html!
Do not PM me unless I expressly ask you to for a consultation!! I am not an Admin nor am I a member of the FORScan Team and all questions should be asked and answered on the Open Forum so all can benefit!

The Bluetooth and adapter drivers will come with it or be downloadable from a vGate server and should run on a Laptop or Windows tablet( Intel or AMD Not an Arm Processor) with Bluetooth capability(Preferably built in rather than an add on USB adapter). It should also run with Forscan Lite for Android Phones and tablets(No Programming with the lite versions however)!

Forscan Windows should work just fine with the connection parameters(Gear Icon) set for a blue tooth device!

My personal preference is USB wired for any programming. Less likely to loose the connection during the critical phases!
