OBD reader - I need help

I purchased the ELM327 Bluetooth reader to pair with my BMW and 360 via iPhone 5 Bluetooth

What I received is the Vgate Scan tool (assume it is the ELM327?)

I plugged it into both the BMW and the 360 but nothing - the scanner light is solid red, no flashing, no pairing with the iPhone

Any ideas? suggestions?

You can stop by here and we can try my ELM327 with your phone and vice verse? I'll be around tomorrow.

Thanks Kevin
Unfortunately, I'm tied up tomorrow

Are you using an iPhone 5 and if so, is it jail broken?

I tried the BMW 335, X5 and 360 with no luck

I've got an Android phone. I should be around Monday too. Might have an extra seat open if you want to come to Amelia with us?
