I've recently gone through the pain of looking for what OBD readers work and what apps are out there and thought it would be useful to share my experience trawling various forums and finding a solution that works for me.

The most useful post I found was here: recommended obd2 adapter? - Page 5 - Kia Soul EV Forum

I ended up going with a Konnwei KW902 which I bought from ebay. (approx £19).
I then tried a bunch of different apps and the only one which supports the full battery cell voltage data (my purpose for getting an OBD reader) was the app called "Soul EV spy".
Note that I tried their "Lite" version which connected but didn't give all the data because the developers have stopped adding features. But the full paid version (£11.99) does support the latest Ioniq EV. I did also find that EVNotify worked well, but does not let me access the detailed cell voltages. For EVNotify to work you have to say you have a Kona when setting the app up.

So all in, this solution cost just over £30 and seems to work well. Only problem now is the fuse / OBD cover can't be fixed whilst it's plugged in so I may follow the advice of others on this forum regarding cables, 3D printed covers, or other solutions!

TL;DR:
Buy a Konnwei KW902 OBD-II reader
Buy the full version of Soul EV Spy on your Android device

I am also in the process of trying to figure this out. I purchased the VEEPEAK BLE+ OBD reader, it did not work with the EV Notify app which is what seems to be the most popular android app for this car. I've returned it and ordered the OBDLink LX which is expensive as **** but seems to be fairly recommended.

TLDR; Don't buy a VEEPEAK, it won't work with 2020 Ioniq and EV Notify App

Hi everyone.

I just tried a OBDII Bluetooth device a workmate with a Tesla has lent to me and I found it worked with my 38 kWh IONIQ. The brand is CARISTA and is quite tiny. It has an interesting feature, red and blue LEDs blinking look like cops following to arrest you. Is a second speed limiter :p
AMAZON LINK <---------- WORKING

I also want to show you my old OBDII device, which worked for me on every previous vehicle except old VAGs and failed to connect to IONIQ. ieGeek brand.
AMAZON LINK <----------- NOT WORKING

I tried Torque Pro, EVNotify, Car Scanner Free, EV Watchdog and canIoniq. It worked with all of them (I have some doubts about canIoniq, I will confirm later).

In the UK it's behind a small plastic panel underneath the steering wheel - also has some fuses in there. This may be the passenger side for a US spec car?

In the left hand drive cars it's on the left side just above the dead pedal, also under a cover that hides the fuses.
