I have my Galaxy Note 9, so sounds like I should be good in that department! Thank you so much, and looks like I will just be picking up the MX in hopes I can get everything back to normal.The PROXI should still work. Usually that code is intermittent and the PROXI might even get rid of it. Get the OBDLinkMX directly from the manufacturer as that is usually the lowest cost. The main advantage of the MX+ is that it will work with an I-phone but the alfaOBD app is only android or PC so you really don't need the MX+. You do not need any adapters. The PC version of alfaOBD is a little more complicated so if you have an android device, that is easier. I prefer an android phone over a tablet. You really don't need a bigger screen. Android devices update automatically through Playstore and the PC laptop version must be updated manually.
I notice in alfaobd you can also change origin so maybe switching to US might get ride of day time running lightsI was tinkering with the software and noticed that when connected to the BCM under the Active Diagnostics there is a menu for "Program Customer Features" in here I tried to disable my DRL (being in canada they cannot be turned off through the 8.4 uconnect). The BCM registered the change from enabled to disabled however the DRL were still active once I put the vehicle in drive. Perhaps there is something that overrides this setting due to it being flashed for a Canadian market.
I also purchased the 5 set of adapter cables that I edited to show in the first post. It cost me $39 CAD after shipping. All in all I am very happy that I have invested roughly $60 ($20 for the OBD2 wifi adapter and $40 for the adapters) and now have the ability to program/diagnose essentially all modules in the vehicle. Considering a proxi alignment alone in Canada is $100-120 depending on the dealer I am very satisfied.
The right way to disable DRL is to connect to the BCM, then Car Configuration Change. Under options, select Day Running Light (DRL), select value Not enabled. Changing the origin country may change things like miles instead of kilometers.I notice in alfaobd you can also change origin so maybe switching to US might get ride of day time running lights
