I thought it was where your toes point to if you had a clutch left foot😁
Have you got a dongle to plug into it?

You need to buy a Bluetooth OBD scanner and download the app from the Project OBD2 thread.

This will give you all the Firmware Levels, SOH and much more.

This is the scanner I got

DIAG Scanner

You can download the App from here

Thanks for posting the links. The app doesn't seem to like my dongle, it won't see the car or tells me the dongle is failing.
I suppose it could be faulty.

Tested the vgate icar pro in my Kia Soul ice and it works fine so it either doesn't like ev obd or the app doesn't like it.
Either way, scratch it off the list of compatible dongles.
