OBD Now for Android
We are pleased to announce OBD Now our new app for Android phones and tablets, is now available on
Google play. OBD Now, in conjunction with an ELM327 chipped scan tool (Bluetooth or Wi-Fi),
transforms your Android phone or tablet into a complete OBDII diagnostic tool.
OBD Now’s simple menu driven structure guides the user through all the OBDII services. Within a minute or two of
connecting with OBD Now, an experienced user can quickly determine if a vehicle is running normally or has faults
and requires further investigation.
OBD Now supports all OBDII services $01 through $0A as specified by SAE J1979 and ISO 15031-5.
OBD Now contains a comprehensive 40+ page user guide. The guide can also be viewed here.

OBD 2007 and OBD 2007 Lite
OBD 2007 is a family of OBD II software applications from GLM Software designed
to assist automotive professionals and enthusiasts alike in diagnosing and analysing
problems with modern vehicle engines.
OBD 2007 for PC for Windows laptop computers.
OBD 2007 Lite, a free download from GLM Software, is a limited edition version of
our commercial product OBD 2007.
How it works
One end of the scan tool connects to your vehicle’s 16 pin OBD connector plug via
a special OBD cable while the other end connects to your computer’s serial port
via a standard serial cable.
All units are sold with the appropriate cabling. Some units such as the Bluetooth
OBDKey, the Bluetooth OBDPro and all the OBD Link scan tools Bluetooth or Wi-Fi don’t require any cabling between the scan tool
and the computer because they connect directly to the vehicle’s OBD plug and wirelessly
to your computer via Bluetooth. Even the cabled units can be converted to connect
wirelessly via Bluetooth with additional Serial BT adapters. Most new laptops no
longer have a serial port, but they can be connected by a USB to RS232 converter
cable to a USB port.
Supported scan tools
OBD 2007 has been developed and tested with each of the following scan tools, but
should also work with any scan tool based on the ELM 327 chip or any scan tool that
emulates the Elm 327 chip.
OBD 2007 has been designed to comply with the international standards ISO 15031-5
and SAE International J1979 “Communication between vehicle and external equipment
for emission related diagnostics”. These standards are applied to every passenger
and light truck vehicle manufactured since 1996 in the USA and 2001 in Europe and
Japan. OBD 2007 complies with the above standards by supporting all services $01
through $0A of the standards. Please note that not all OBD II compliant vehicles
support each service. OBD 2007 will report which services the vehicle doesn’t support.
Based in Melbourne Australia, GLM Software has more than 20 years of application
development and practical automotive experience and is a leading producer of vehicle
