I have a Samsung tab 2 P5100, this is my first android device! i bought it for the sole reason to connect to my car's OBD.(On-Board Diagnostics) via a Bluetooth obd adapter
[ELM327 E-327 v1.5 Interface Bluetooth OBD2] using Torque app pro on Google play.



The problem is , it connect and pairs with the tablet the adapter is displayed as paired in Bluetooth settings!

but when torque pro is opened I choose connect via Bluetooth , a screen keeps appearing every 5 seconds please enter Bluetooth pin. the same happens if i use another application like palmers dashcommand to connect to the Bluetooth OBD.

Please help

Hi BAAS1ZN. The pin should be 1234. That's the default password for the ELM 327 Bluetooth OBD2.
Happy New Year!

Hi BAAS1ZN, congratulations on your new Samsung Tab 2 and welcome to the forum. I'm moving your thread to the Android Tablet Q&A section for you, where more people are likely to join the discussion and try to help you get that pairing sorted out. Enjoy the forum and your new tablet.

Hi BAAS1ZN,

I had the exact same problem , and literally by chance , i rooted my tablet, then bricked it somewhat, as the touch keyboard didn't want work anymore,
so i had to load the original "factory" image on the tablet to restore it, disabled updates, and Bob's ur uncle , it worked.. no more re-auth to the dongle..

the only thing is of course it you do that , and run the Samsung updates , it will start doing the re-auth again..

Hope it helps..

Please note that the use of this info and regarding rooting is done at your own risk.. :)
