Hi,

I just got my FlashPro and I must say I am amazed by the multitude of tuning settings.

However I am not able to work out two issues:

1) Limit BT access - I have specified two BT MAC addresses in the FlashPro Manager (my PC's and the cars headunit's), but I can still connect to the FlashPro from my iPhone. Is there a trick a procedure make this access restriction feature work? I would really like not to have my FlashPro publicly accessible. Changing the PIN does not really make a difference in security since some connections don't even ask for PIN.

2) Connection dropping - my Hondata mobile app on the headunit connects every time without any problems but it keeps dropping the connection after a random period of time (couple of minutes). Is says "connection lost" and when that happens, it does not reconnect automatically, I have to back out to main screen and select the device from the list. I suspect this may be a headunit issue more than Hondata, but perhaps someone already experienced this and worked it out?

My setup is:
- 2017 euro FK8
- Hondahack 5.0.10
- Hondata Mobile app V1.5
- FlashPro manager V3.4.2

FWIW - I figured out that this was caused by the Auto-Start Stop system (US cars don't have, I think). Turning off ASS solved the disconnection problem.

Mine worked fine until I got it trying to connect to my phone now the Hondata app. I deleted it and trying to reconnect so do I need to re- jail break?

You can’t use phone blue tooth and hondata app at same time. You must only have hondata bluetooth by itself and no other Bluetooth items programmed at all. I had same issue. The head unit can only handle one Bluetooth item at a time.

Maybe the EU headunit is different but I have no problem running 2 devices via BT at the same time (my phone and FlashPro).

The only problem I have is with the auto start-stop system - when the engine restarts, FlashPro drops the connection. The solution is to disable auto-start stop when using the Hondata app.
