Searched here at the forum and found that there are a "set of 6 adapter cables" available, also that I should buy "the obdlink mx not the lx and buy the A6 grey connector".
I can find the obdlink mx and mx+, but I canīt find anything about these adapter cables/connectors???

The mx+ is the right one. It's the fastest and uses bluetooth. The cable set is for accessing different speed can bus systems. Grey is for high speed, blue is for mid speed. You will need both. I ordered the set of 6 from the UK.

Thanks!!! Found it now...
Hope I will be able to adjust the traction control intensity!
The local dealer donīt know how to do it (or donīt want to)...

Frequently the traction control light come on and the engine lose power while the vehicle is making a 90° turn, even at low speed.
The problem is that it keeps actuating for a long time!

I've never had a reason to try that. All I can say is that the software does have a lot of features.

About the DDX9905S install, finally I got it right!!!
My car is the 2.0 Turbo Diesel, Longitude, had the uConnect 5in HU but no amp/sw, it did not came with the Beats system.

I guess thatīs the main reason it must use the OBDII connection, other users here seem to have the Beats integrated amp and subwoofer and maybe these ones donīt need the OBDII plugged to the Maestro harness.
So, now there is no odometer flashing and it looks almost perfect! I will not consider replacing the old HU back...

My only doubt now is how to adjust the units for metrics, since the Maestro unit allowed me to properly configure it to metrics but the dashboard on the Kenwood display keeps showing everything in US standards.
Anyway, Iīm still interested on the AlfaOBD software and cable adapters because I donīt plan to go back to the dealer once the warranty expires on August/19.

Just to warn that if you flash a "Pixel Experience" ROM into a Galaxy S7 or S9 it will not enable Android Auto Wireless...

But is a nice upgrade to the cell phone anyway, to get rid of all the Samsung useless software garbage.
