OBDII port and cable

Hi,

Please post picture and the location of the MG ZS EV OBDII port.

What is the recommended OVMS cable for the MG ZS EV(left / right / straight)?

I have ordered MG ZS EV (will have it in 14 days) and i want to order OVMS + cable for CAN bus sniffer.

Thanks

Adding OBD2 for torque app or OVMS

Hi

I have recieved from my thai friend instructions for adding OBD port for torque app via gateway module on passenger side.

Connectors needed are:

The Left hand drive models, as delivered in the Netherlands have the gateway module mounted under the steering wheel. back to back with the Bosch module.

This is probably a silly

This is probably a silly question, but do we actually need a Y cable to connect a OVMS unit?

Also in the forum somebody said crimping would be required, I thought the whole purpose of using the Y cable was so you won't need to do any cuts/ joins to the current cables. Or is crimping required, because some of the cables are not corrected to the right pins?

Thanks

No y-cable and no

No y-cable and no modifications are required. Just plug the ODB2 cable straight in
