VAG DPF shows you the most important data related to the DPF particulate filter and its regeneration phases using an ELM327 Bluetooth/WIFI adapter. With this app you can know if the filter is actually in the regeneration process, if a regeneration is waiting to complete, how many km have you traveled since the last regeneration, etc. This app doesn’t use standard OBD2 commands as almost all other apps, it uses directly CAN commands specific to the car model and this is the reason why it doesn’t work with every car; due to the use of CAN commands, the app needs at least a decent ELM327 adapter (see note below); some users report correct app working with a 10-15 euro adapter.
IMPORTANT!! I suggest trying the app “VAG DPF Free” to check the correct functionality of your adapter and your Android before buying the full app.

Some words about ELM327 adapters:
– OBDLink LX: recommended, expensive but fast and reliable (I used it for the development of this app)
– Carista: recommended, affordable price but very reliable (I use it for debug and daily scans)
– China cloned adapter: not recommended, unreliable, you can randomly find decent adapters or fake adapters with unpredictable results
