Can someone verify if this ELM327 Wifi OBD Tools works with LeafSpy Pro?

Yes, from the picture, I have one similar to this. I am not familiar with the wi fi version. I have a Bluetooth version..

If you pick one from the officially supported list, you should have success:

I don't own an iPhone, but my understanding is that LeafSpy now supports BlueTooth connectivity for iOS devices, so you don't need to buy a Wifi ODB2 dongle.

Hopefully someone else can verify that...

My experience is the LELink (Bluetooth Low Energy protocol) works with LeafSpy Pro on both iPhones and Android devices. As well it seems to have very low power draw, and I've not had a problem leaving it plugged in on a day-to-day basis. I still unplug it if I'm leaving for a week or so, just in case. The unit is low profile - hardly know it's there.

Also, I avoid keeping LeafSpy running near the car when the LEAF is shut off, as it will keep waking the system up and you can hear relays clicking every few seconds.

I bought this one about a month ago and it works great with my Leaf. It's also lower profile and cheaper!

I don't know if there has been any update or change in the last two years. When I bought mine, the ELM327 Bluetooth units had to be the 1.5 Version and not the 2.1 Version (the 2.1 would not work with Leaf Spy).
