Problems Authenticating (one blinking blue light) after iOS7 upgrade

We’ve had a couple of people call with problems getting the DashBoss gateway to authenticate (two solid blue LEDs) after they upgraded to iOS7.  This is a just a couple of people, so not sure what the deal is?  Anyway, here’s what we suggest to clear the problem:

  1. UPDATE the gateway firmware to the latest version (1.69) … go here for the VIDEO Tutorials for your desktop operating system (Windows or MacOSX).  Be sure to uplug the gateway from the OBD2 port before doing the update!  If the gateway is plugged into the vehicle it will not allow you to update.
  2. UPDATE your DashBoss App on the iOS device to the latest version (v1.94) from the APPLE APP STORE.
  3. Power your iOS device COMPLETELY down.  Hold the sleep button until you get the swipe dialog to power it off.
  4. Power the iOS device up
  5. Go to SETTINGS
  6. Go to BLUETOOTH
  7. TAP the “I” next to DASHBOSS in the device list
  9. Go back to BLUETOOTH and now it should show DASHBOSS as “Not Paired”

… now go through the Pairing and connection process just like it’s a “fresh” installation.  It should pair back up and connect with TWO SOLID BLUE LEDS (after a period of them blinking), and when you open the App it should take 10-45 seconds to rescan the vehicle and then CONNECT.

V1.94 is available on the App Store!

V1.94 has just been approved and released to the App Store.  This release is basically an iOS7 optimization release to ensure that we are totally compatible with the iOS7 tool chain

iOS7 is coming! We are testing against it right now!

OK, first the bad news … the current 1.92 build of the App has problems with iOS7 and the way some of the interface lays out.  The biggest thing is you see SCRAMBLED PID categories and PID names in the picker and the gauges screens.  Not good..


We have it fixed and ready for release as soon as iOS7 rolls out.  The only drawback is that we can’t submit the fix until iOS7 is official and they allow us to submit with the latest development tools release.  This means there will be a couple of days where iOS7 will be out and if you upgrade, your DashBoss will be hosed.  We plan to submit the moment they allow it, and it usually takes 1-4 days for Apple to test, approve and post to the App Store.

Alternatively, we’re looking to see if we can slip the fixes into an interim v1.93 build with the older development tools and submit it, but that’s looking like it won’t be possible. However, we’re trying!

V1.91 Released

v1.91 has been released to the App Store and should be published early this week (8/11).  This includes all the new stuff from v1.9 and a bug fix for non-Ford vehicles not always scanning all parameters.  Be sure to download and update your firmware to v1.69 (see VIDEO TUTORIAL) to be completely up to date.  Your old firmware 1.63 will still work, but you may not have access to all the new features.
