Apparently the plug for the cable that connects to the dongle is different from the simple one used by BS4 in the BS6 variant. That latter one is Honda compatible.
I use "Car Scanner ELM ODB2" - a free app from the android play store.

I have watched a video made by a German guy who explains it really well - maybe I will translate it down the line. In any case there seems to be a need for switching off the "engine" LED some times that comes on every time something strange happens in the ECU - and remains on even after the issue is dealt with.
Here is an instruction for the BS4 (not my model, I have BS6, so no comment on that):

Technical Modifications (in english!)
and on YT (BS4):

So for now here is what I have got from Amazon so far for about 15 US$: btw: the CD is useless - does not work.

BS6: It seems every time you have problems with the relays this LED comes on. This video in GERMAN explains it quite well. This is the one I may use for translation titled: Help, my Himalayan does not start up":


This is the plug for the cable:
