Q. Forscan Error "this adapter is not recommended for this car"
A. Forscan are planning to add some features in the future which are not compatible with ELM327 cables. This does not mean your adapter is faulty or not currently compatible with your car.
It means that due to poor quality Chinese Elm327 Forscan no longer recommends you use any Elm327 devices.
