Advice needed for the prospective purchase of an OBD scanner for my A3


New member
Hi there Guy’s & Gals
I purchased an OBD scanner ( MAXIECU )
I tried it on an old laptop that I had in for repair and would steadfastly not communicate with the MAXIECU
So I purchased another laptop “Panasonic Toughbook CF-C1” Military Laptop which has Bluetooth v4
The scanner will not communicate with this laptop, so I purchased and installed a Bluetooth USB stick v5 and still no luck.
To put things into perspective my vehicle is as follows ;
A3 1.9Tdi 8P1 March 2009, plate - 3 door hatchback
So I am now seeking an OBD scanner that will communicate via Bluetooth v4 OR Wi-Fi
Once purchased I will update the thread on the results
I look forward to the response.
I would recommend OBDeleven, bluetooth and works with either android or Apple phones but not with a laptop.
