I added a patch to fix the configure dialog. You should be able to select the proper port now with that working.

I'll see if there's a way to submit that patch to upstream.

Same problem here, can't change the COM port to /dev/ttyUSB0, can't access the 'configure' section, and certainly cannot connect to the device @ttyUSB0 since the device in use is /dev/ttyACM0, any ideas / suggestions?

It fails for me. Clicking "Configure" menu item causes this message:
$ sudo pyobd
Traceback (most recent call last):

Clicking "Connect" menu item causes this message:

It also says that the COM port is /dev/ttyACM0 when it should be /dev/ttyUSB0

Should work fine. I've used it with a cheap ELM327 USB device I bought off Amazon.

I have a question for anybody who used this package: Is it compatible with the cheap USB code readers (like this, or it is only compatible with their reader (
