Bluetooth AutoPi

Hi all,

Can someone help me how to connect Bluetooth in AutoPi as I don’t see on my iPhone any available devices.

Also on website is advertised that AutoPi support Hyundai Kona but after connecting I’m getting only gps info and battery level.
I’m new user or AutoPi I will appreciate any help.

Thank you so much

Hi Marcin,

Welcome to the forum.

In the next release, coming in a couple of day, you can enable bluetooth directly from the Cloud Advanced settings.

This will make it easier for you to start working with.


Thank you Peter for quick response would be great to have that. Also could you advice how to add as advertised on website

Hi Marcin,

Yes absolutely.

In the community library you need to look for the commands supporting your car. See this guide on how to use the library:

You can then add these commands to your dashboard in order to get the information you want from your car. See this post on how to do that:

To receive the charge notification on your phone (or any other external device), see this post made by one of our users:

To get the CO2 emission from the car, see this post:

Hi Marcin,

Did you get it working.

In the latest release we’ve added support for enabling blueetooth via the advanced settings in the AutoPi Cloud. Please check this.

As another new feature, you can also use the AutoPi as an EML327 proxy and send datat to your favorite car scanner apps.

How to setup Bluetooth on a Raspberry Pi 3

The Raspberry Pi 3 comes with Bluetooth 4.1, but it doesn’t work out of the box. Here’s how to get Bluetooth up and running on the latest Raspberry Pi.


  • Type sudo bluetoothctl then press enter and input the administrator password.
  • Next, enter agent on and press enter. Then type default-agent and press enter.
  • Type scan on and press enter one more time. The unique addresses of all the Bluetooth devices around the Raspberry Pi will appear and look something like an alphanumeric XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX. If you make the device you want to pair discoverable (or put it into pairing mode), the device nickname may appear to the right of the address. If not, you will have to do a little trial and error or waiting to find the correct device.
  • To pair the device, type pair [device Bluetooth address]. The command will look something like pair XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX.
  • If you’re pairing a keyboard, you will need to enter a six-digit string of numbers. You will see that the device has been paired, but it may not have connected. To connect the device, type connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX.
  • Now you can toss that ancient wired keyboard in the junk drawer of your desk until you reflash your Raspberry Pi tomorrow.

News: nothing to do, even if I connect Bluetooth via terminal OBD data does not pass. so I suspect there are problems in the AutoPi software

Please fix the problem with Bluetooth as doesn’t work
Autopilot is sold with Bluetooth so should work out of the box .


Hi Marcin,

If you’ve enabled Bluetooth from the settings menu, then it should work out of the box.

If it doesn’t then please reach out to, then they will investigate.

If you are trying to setup communication with a 3rd party app (torque), then this is only possible through WiFi. So you’d have to setup your app to listen on the WiFi connection.
