how to get "Vgate vLinker MC+" working?

Question

Description:  How to get the recommended Vgate vLinker MC+ on an Android Smartphone (GalaxyS21) working?.

Hello community,

for my Enyaq I purchased the recommended 
Vgate vLinker MC+, I also installed (Via the button to Google Play),the BLE-Scanner.
The scanner 'sees' the 
OBD BLE adapter, I also can read out (display) some information, but I'm still not bonded and the bluetooth settings are saying: You need an App to use this device.
So in my opinion, the BLE Scanner is only to see, whether the dongle is available but - and this is my quesation - how do I get this OBD BLE adapter into ABRP? In settings I can't find anything related to OBD.

Thx in advance fpr any help
br Egbert.

Hi Egbert. Did it already work?
Have you added the Enyaq as your car first?
After that you can edit the car and add live date
Link ABRP OBD Connection
Make sure your OBD BLE dongl is connected to your car and powered on.

Hello Patrick,

at the beginning, it was a pain in the ass, to get the Vgate Vlinker MC+ working (the button to pair doesn't work, no time window), but the disadvantage - and this is also mentioned in the recommended OBD dongles - with every new connection (power off - power on) the MAC address of the Vgate Vlinker MC+ OBD dongle changes and you have to do the whole connection process, which was not always successful. So, I sent this dongle back and bought the 1st recommended dongle from OBD Link CX and this one works like a charm: Plug it in and it gets connected at once

Once you are connected, then you can edit everything you want - but I bought the ABRP Premium version to get all functions. Because of a lot of issues with the App ABRP itself, I terminated the subscription. There have been some improvements whioch I have to verify first next month maybe...

cu egbert.

I agree. The V LInker does not seem to work and now the return window is gone so do I spend another $102 for the Link CX?  I have a 2020 Kia Niro EV Touring.  It connects then not and now I can't even get the connection to stay.  It keeps saying it can read some data but not continuous and then gives an error. That is why I bought the OBD and subscribed to ABRP so I can get live data.  I will try it more on my trip starting tomorrow and if it does not work then  may give up my ABRP premium sub.
