Here are steps how to capture OBDII log from Teltonika devices with Bluetooth OBDII dongle or directly supporting OBDII data reading

This functionality is available after 03.08.00 firmware version.

  1. Make sure that the CAN adapter is connected properly to the vehicle and to the FMB1YX series device.
  2. Start vehicle engine (skip if vehicle is deployed)
  3. Send following SMS commands to Teltonika tracker:
    1. If you have set SMS login and password:login pass sdformat
      Note:This will delete all previous DUMP logs without and records that have not been sent yet.
      If SMS login and password are not set, then leave two spaces before command: aasdformat
    2. If you have set SMS login and password:login pass log2sdfilterset 0;2;4;1
      If SMS login and password are not set, then leave two spaces before command: aalog2sdfilterset 0;2;4;1
      Filter description: Filter 0 - default filters (No additional data)
      Filter 2 - turns on AVL record creation filter
      Filter 4 - turns on incoming CAN/OBDII data filter
      Filter 7 - turns on BT3 connection filter (only needed when troubleshooting OBDII devices connected via BT)
      Filter 1 - saves installed filters to memory after restart
      Note:If you are using bluetooth OBDII dongle use log2sdfilterset 0;2;4;7;1 instead of log2sdfilterset 0;2;4;1
      If command log2sdfilterset was sent correctly:
      SMS Response will be: Enabled Trace Filters:5 or Enabled Trace Filters:4 depending on the sent command. You can restart the device after correct response is received
    3. If you have set SMS login and password: login pass cpureset
    4. If SMS login and password are not set, then leave two spaces before command: aacpureset
  4. After the SMS response message CAN adapter log capturing has been started.
  5. Wait at least 5 minutes to get enough OBDII data and turn off vehicle engine (skip if vehicle is deployed)
