Freematics OBD-II UART Adapter V2.1 coming soon

Freematics OBD-II UART Adapter V2 has been upgraded. The new V2.1 is completely compatible with V2 and has several enhancements including:

  • 9-DOF motion sensor (instead of 6-DOF)
  • Built-in 9-DOF quanterion algorithm for orientation detection
  • New AT commands for reading calculated pitch, yaw, roll values
  • Unpluggable serial cable (easier for using as a USB adapter)

The new version will start to ship in no more than 2 weeks time from now. Meanwhile, the V2 is out of stock but you can still place order for them and we will ship V2.1 instead when the stock come.
