It would be easier to answer if you give the exact separate phrases as well as context screens...

As I guess some of them from Settings-Advanced-...
Failure time
number of attempts to get "positive" answer from the car when reading parameter. If car/adapter get more than specified number of fail/no-data answers, app automatically disconnects.

Use specific initial string / Custom init
might required to setup connection with some cars that not 100% compatible with OBD-II standard specification

Sharing options
Send to a service
used to upload selected record to this site. After uploading it will be available at your personal cabinet.

Please note that App supports only parameters and ECU's specified with OBD-II standard, that is Engine and Emission systems (Check Engine dashboard light).

Unfortunately other car systems like service reminders, ABS, ESP, SRS etc. do not covered with any standard. Implementation could be very different for various make-model-year. You might need the other specialized solution for exact make-model-year that declare support of all listed systems.
