OBD Bluetooth dongle - not connecting!!

Post by jonwilli » Tue Sep 25, 2018 8:18 am

OK I have a plug in Bluetooth dongle that I bought to use the Torque App on my 2007 E81 130i. It has always worked without a problem. I have tried to use the same dongle on my E87 2006 130i and my phone will not connect to the dongle! I have phone prep on the E87 so have turned that off just in case it was confusing the phone's Bluetooth receiver, still no joy. I wondered if the dongles can only be used on one VIN or if there was any other security on them? They seem like a very simple piece of hardware so doubted it. I wondered if anyone had had similar problems or if a specific dongle was needed for a pre facelift car.
