The NDSII provides basic diagnostics for N i s s a n and I n f i n i t i cars. It is intended for newer cars that have a 16 pin OBDII connector and use Consult II protocol over k-line (DDL2). Those are usually cars build between years 2001 and 2007. The connector is typically located near the fuse box.
This application supports both, petrol and diesel cars. It communicates with the engine ECU using Consult II protocol. It uses the same communication protocol as the dealer diagnostic tool. This protocol is far more comprehensive than the generic OBDII or ISO9141 protocol.
The current version of the app has following functions:
• Data Display with data logging
• Self Diagnostics
• Work Support with Clear Self Learn, Idle Air Volume Learn functions
• Dash Display with customisable gauges
• Video Recorder
The video recorder function saves an mp4 video file with accompanying data log file. Overlay software such as RaceRender can then be used to generate videos with custom data visualization.
A Bluetooth diagnostic adapter is required to connect to the car. This app is design to work with adapters build on the popular ELM327 chip. They are very well priced and available from many Internet suppliers or eBay. For a list of tested adapters please visit our website.
NOTE: There are a number of adapters from China with fake ELM327 v2.1 chip. Those adapters do not have all required commands and are not supported. Look for adapters with v1.5 or v1.4 chip.
If you would like to test the application for compatibility with your car, try the free Lite version also available from Google Play store.
