Default OBDeleven - what MKII SQ5/Q5 changes have you made?

I am looking to pick one of these units up and curious what folks have been able to do. What and how would be ideal.

I'm also very interested in hearing more about this before investing in the device. I'd like to understand whether or not the Pro pack is necessary and how the credit system actually works. The things I'm most interested in doing with my SQ5 are the following:

Gear display in D/S
Central Lock while ignition on
Comfort turn signals adjustment
Start/stop function memory - I know it can be disabled, what I really want is for it to remember state or default to off

Also, for the OP, you may want to look into this thread, which talks about some uses for it: https://www.audiworld.com/forums/q5-...oding-2923805/

I bought my OBDeleven device in early Sept. 2017 and in my opinion it was worth every penny. It's very easy and intuitive to use. I purchased the device from Deutsche Auto Parts for $79.99, which included free shipping as well as an activation code to enable OBDeleven "PRO" app features.
Using the OBDeleven device (with associated android-only smartphone app) I've carried out the following changes on my 2018 Q5:

● Activated active lane assist (ALA) using the coding & adaptation revision instructions posted in the A4 (B9 platform) forum
● Activated automatic gear selection display for "D" & "S" modes using adaptation revision instructions posted in the Q5 (MKI) forum
● Changed comfort turn signals from 3 blinks to 4 blinks using the included 1 click app contained within the OBDeleven app
● Activated Scandinavian DRLs using the included 1 click app contained within the OBDeleven app
● Deactivated seat belt warning chime using the included 1 click app contained within the OBDeleven app
● Activated "needle sweep" using the included 1 click app contained within the OBDeleven app
>> Pending action: considering deactivating the Auto Start-Stop function using either the included 1 click app (cost of 100 credit points) or using an adaptation revision instruction posted in the A4 (B9) and Q7 (MKII) forums

Per the Google Play Store app description, the OBDeleven "PRO" App features include:
- Trouble code Freeze frame
- Advanced control unit information
- Live data, measurements
- Textual Long coding, Adaptations, Live data, Basic settings, Output test for UDS control units
- Charts
- Coding
- Coding II
- Long coding
- Sub control units information
- Sub control units coding
- Getaway installation list coding
- Adaptation
- Long Adaptation
- Basic settings
- Output test
- Security access
- Login finder
- Readiness (UDS)
- Control unit reset (UDS)
- Diagnostic service change
- Control unit Backup
- Control unit programming history
- Car programming history

I'm looking also to buy ODBeleven here in Canada , but there are not too many shops from where to buy.
Does any Canadian fellows bought the ODBeleven ? From where , if you don't mind.
On Ebay or Amazon there are some vendors from Lithuania which I'm a bit worried to order from.
The US Deutsche auto part doesn't ship in Canada , unfortunately or it cost a lot for shipping.

Thanks,

^ I also live in Canada - London, ON. I purchased my OBDeleven device from Deutsche Auto Parts (free shipping in U.S.) and had it shipped to my parcel pick-up address in Port Huron MI, which is about 60 miles away from where I live. Since you live in Montreal QC.. why don't you order from DAP and have it shipped free to a parcel pick-up address in Plattsburg NY or a similar border town?
There are a couple of online shops based in Calgary AB (GTR Auto is one of them) that sell the OBDeleven, but you'll end up paying more money vs DAP because of the shipping charge and the tax added (HST).

Does anyone know if OBDEleven can adjust the suspension leveling calibration for the air system cars? I know that VAG-COM use to be able to do this for the older audis and it would be a pretty killer feature to be able to adjust ride height from this app.

Before receiving a physical OBDeleven device you can download & install the app, create an account (11 free credits) and begin accumulating free credit points daily (generally 5 free credit points available each day that you visit the OBDeleven app and click on Get Credits).
Most of the "1 click" apps cost the user 10 credit points to utilize. A couple of the apps (such as deactivate Auto Start-Stop) cost 100 points to use.
