for those who have worked with BLE before, i have a bit of a hardball question.
I have been doing a lot of research into OBD2 stuff. initially, i thought the greatest issue would be getting the numbers and converting from base 16 to base 10. not the case. I have, basically, run into a brick wall attempting to even connect to devices. I would rather not buy any more obd devices, seeing as how this one would be my third attempt, I would like to ask the staff to help ascertain if this device would be compatible with the thunkable BLE function or not. the docs on the site seem to be rather sparse in terms of detail.
Now, I have successfully made a b16 to b10 converter, so i can read the return values properly. however, i don’t know exactly how to connect to the device. it seems as if all successful ble connections i could find were done with Arduino devices that don’t exactly carry over to what I am doing here.
Luckily, this company provides EXTENSIVE documentation on interfacing with its devices. however, it does NOT have the low energy model in the reference sheet of the device’s command sets and what you need to do to properly calculate the values.
i think i can manage to do the calculations part of it using thunkable blocks and maybe a few api’s.
however, and this is my greatest concern, would the device commands remain the same as in the reference sheet if I am using the low energy version of the device?
and, if its the same, would thunkable’s BLE function be able to handle this?
