Use a Windows style laptop not a tablet.

Thank you
When I bought mine it had a white card with step by step instructions on it.

Download drivers from OBDlink
Install OBDWiz

I can post the details if your are not sorted. The light goes yellow when it has the right drivers and is ready to work.

Having trouble now with getting firmware to upload
Its telling me
User action required to complete firmware update
1 unplug cables from device
2 wait at least 10 seconds
3 plug device back in
4 click upload firmware button

I'm doing all this but it just keeps coming back
I don't think its recognising or finding the obd ex

Any ideas

Thanks
