In terms of features, there are no differences between them. ZUS Smart Vehicle Health Monitor Mini/Lite is a compressed version of the Vehicle Health Monitor.


Q2: Why does my ZUS app dashboard not showing any data after connection?

The ZUS app is supposed to show Rev, speed, engine load, coolant temperature and other data when your monitor is connected with the app. 


If there is no data showing after you've driven more than 15 miles. We suggest you reach us at cs@nonda.us with the following information:

1. Phone Brand & Model. 

2. Vehicle brand, model and year.

3. A screenshot showing your ZUS app has no data showing from the dashboard. 


Q3: Why when my car's engine light is on but the ZUS app scanner didn't show any faulty code?

Health Monitor read faulty code based on world standard OBD-II PIDs, but some manufactures define many more PIDs specific to their vehicles. Thus, ZUS Smart Vehicle Health Monitor Lite might be not compatible with your car. You may find the incompatible list below:
