    "Car Scanner" (OBD software) now supports Mach-E

    I bought an OBD adapter (in my case it was the OBDLink MX+ Bluetooth interface) and I've tried different apps with it. My adapter comes with OBDLink software ... but that doesn't have direct support for the Mach-E. I also tried FORScan ... which also doesn't have direct support yet for Mach-E...
