The Nissan DataScan III for Android is intended for newer Nissan cars equipped with 16 pin OBDII connecter and use Consult III protocol over CAN. Those are usually cars build between years 2007 and now. The connector is usually located near the fuse box.

A list of cars that the software has been tested on is located on the Supported Vehicles page. The list is by no means comprehensive and is constantly being updated as new vehicles are tested.

The NDSIII application supports petrol cars. It communicates with the engine ECU using Consult III protocol. It uses the same communication protocol as the dealer diagnostic tool. This protocol is far more comprehensive than the generic ISO15765 protocol. The following functions are currently available:

  • Data Display with Data Logging
  • Self Diagnostics
  • Work Support
  • Dash Display with customizable gauges
  • Video Recorder.

A Bluetooth, WiFi or USB diagnostic adapter is required to connect to the car. This app is design to work with adapters build on the popular ELM327 chip. They are very well priced and available from many internet stores and eBay.

NOTE: There is a number of adaptors with fake ELM327 v2.1 chip. Those adaptors do not have all required commands and are not supported. For a list of tested adaptors please visit Supported Adaptors page.

The NDSIII app can be downloaded from Google Play store NDSIII for Android.

If you would like to test the connection to your car you can download the NDSIII Lite free version NDSIII Lite for Android.

The Nissan DataScan III app supports factory Nissan engine ECUs. Aftermarket ECUs like Apexi Power FC or F-Con V Pro are not compatible with this app.
