Frequently Asked Questions

MHD Wireless Adapter FAQ

The MHD wireless adapter allows you to reliably use all MHD features on the go, faster and easier than ever before. Just plug it in to the OBDII port, pair your mobile device to the Wifi access point created by the adapter, and you can flash, log, read codes etc. instantly – no cable needed anymore.

While using the MHD wireless adapters your phone LTE/4G data connectivity and bluetooth all remain active – and charging the phone is possible.

Adapters are compatible, or will soon be compatible with your favorite other apps – xHP, xDelete, Thor, Protools, Bimmercode and many more.

Two models are available:

  • E series model (orange). Faster than regular KDcan cable. Compatible with F/G models but not as fast as the F/G series black adapter.
  • F/G series + Supra model (black). The ultimate adapter for F/G series and Supra! DME unlock and first MHD installation in 4 mins, map & options change in 20 seconds. This adapter is 10x faster than a standard KDcan cable and 2.5x faster that the orange MHD e-series Wifi adapter. (Attention: The black adapter can not be used on E-Series cars!)

FAQ:

Q: Do I still have a connection to the internet when connected to the adapter?
A: Yes, as long as you have cellular internet available (some devices require special settings to have cellular connection if WIFI has no internet)

Q: Why Wifi not Bluetooth?
A: Bluetooth is slower, and for future iOS compatibility only the slower BLE could have been used. WIFI is available for every device, has greater connection distance, a more reliable connection, is faster, and leaves Bluetooth available.

Q: Can I use it only at home?
A: The access point is created by the Adapter not your WIFI at home. This means you can use the adapter wherever you want.

Q: Can I use the RJ45 port on the black adapter for ENET tools?
A: Yes, the RJ45 port provides support for all ENET applications.

Q: Can I leave the adapter connected?
A: Yes, but we recommend to unplug if the car is not used for longer than 7 days to prevent extra stress on the battery. Attention: On G Series cars with factory alarm system the adapter must be unplugged because the alarm will be activated after locking the car.

Can I test the connection before making a purchase?

Yes, simply tap the MHD Store button. The ECU connection is checked before displaying available purchases.

What is a bench flash?

MEVD1726 eqipped BMWs need a one time bench flash in order to jail brake the ECU to allow flashing via the OBD port. This process requires uninstalling the DME from the car and sending it in to a MHD partner for the jail break / unlock.

Does my Android device need to be permanently plugged to the OBD port?

No. Once a flash is performed you can unplug your device.

Do I need to purchase a new license each time I flash a map?

No, you can ref lash as many times as needed.

Can I tune different cars with one license?

Each vehicle has its own unique license (VIN and google account locked), tuning a different car requires purchasing a new license.

Can I tune multiple cars with one google play account?

Yes, you can purchase multiple licenses with one google play account.

Can I transfer my licenses?

Licenses are personal and stored by google along the account used at purchase time. The purchases are tied by google to the first account and can not be transferred to a new google account.

Is a battery charger required?

It is highly recommended for long flashes (install, uninstall). A healthy battery will handle short flashes (map changes) fine but the use of a battery charger remains recommended.

Google purchase fail

Here you can request a call from Google, other customers revolved this issue quickly with a call, use the “Get help” button at the bottom:

My flash failed.

The most common issues for failing flashes are lack of current or unreliable KDcan cables.

For the current supply:
– let the battery charge fully first and leave the charger on
– alternatively, bridge the car to another running engine

Make sure ignition is fully on (insert key, press the start button without touching the brakes until the dashboard displays the actual fuel level) .

If that stills fails, it’s often due to a bad KDcan cable. See page 5 of the user manual for recommended cables per country

My license is missing.

This happens when the internet connection is lost just after the purchase. Either wait 24 hours for the Google purchase cache to be regenerated, or go to android settings, apps, MHD, clear data cache, reboot the device.

After that, check the internet connection is active, and start MHD, wait 5s, and check licenses with the top right menu, show licenses (no connection to the car needed).

How do I do data logs?

Press the monitor (auto log) button, stabilize around 2500 rpm / 3rd gear with DSC fully off. Mash the pedal, shift at 6500 rpm and 2-3s after the shift into 4th gear release the throttle and slow down, then stop the monitor.

Then upload the .csv file in MHD / datalog to datazap.me
