1 Installation Important: In order to use the software, you must first install the
interface driver. If you are using a USB interface, download the driver the installation procedure from our website in the download section: http://www.outilsobdfacile.fr/telechargement-logiciel-elm327.html
Installation: Download the latest version of EOBD-Facile from our website and run the installer called Install EOBD-Facile.exe.
The software requires no special installation and will not modify
your registry. It is important to note that the software does not use:
Registry key Hidden files Does not create any files or directories outside its
installation directories Does not modify your Windows parameters (resolution,
Update: After downloading the new version, re-install the
software in the directory already containing it. All the old files will be replaced with the new ones. Above all, do not delete the EOBD-Facile directory in My Documents containing your settings and your saved data.
Uninstallation: If you wish to uninstall the software, just delete
the files and directories in the directory containing the application. Your personal connection and data files are in the directory My
documents\EOBD-Facile. You may delete them if you will no longer need them.
2 How to activate your software? Procedure:
1. Connect to your vehicle and use the wizard present in the menu "Register" and "Create a registration file".
2. Follow the instructions to create a file to be returned to us by email
3. You will receive a reply with a login and activation key (within 24 hours maximum)
4. Enter this information in the software via the menu "Register" then "register..."
5. Restart the software
Why should you register?
Registration will activate additional functions in the software. The log file that you will provide to register will enable future users to benefit from your experience and create a list of EOBD compatible vehicles and the functions that they support.
Registration is free of charge and only requires a few minutes.
Can I install EOBD-Facile on another PC using my registration data?
Unfortunately not, the registration data you receive is only valid for the PC used to generate the log file. If you have already registered and need a second key for another PC, please send us an email with your login and include a log file generated with this new PC (this file can be generated without connecting to a vehicle using the Demonstration mode and creating a file log-demo.txt, to attach to your email). Similarly, if you have lost your registration data following reformatting or deletion of EOBD-Facile, send us an email requesting them.

4 Connecting to the vehicle (USB and RS232) First, when you open the application, connect to the vehicle using
the interface. You can connect in several ways: Automatically: The software automatically detects the port
number and communication speed of your ELM. Auto-detection is checked by default.
Important: This option is only possible with USB ELMs. The USB driver for the interface must first be installed.
Manually: The software tries to connect using the parameters
you entered in the Setup window accessible from the File menu. (see image below).
Important: In manual (Auto-detection unchecked), you can use ELM32x RS232 or Bluetooth interfaces by correctly configuring the port parameters and by connecting with an (ELM327 USB) interface in the connection tab.
Configuring the initialisation time:
The ELM requires time to initialise the connection with the vehicle. By default, the waiting time is set to 14 seconds. If you are having connection problems, it may be helpful to increase this parameter.
Configuring the vehicle protocol: The ELM can automatically detect your vehicles protocol.
Unless you are an expert, leave the option on automatic. It may happen that protocol auto-detection does not work for several reasons. Most often it is because there are several valid protocols for your vehicle. In this case, you can force the ELM to connect with the desired protocol.
Confirm your parameters by clicking on OK, and proceed as
