New Leaf - BAD ELM's Tried 2 so far HELP ! Leaf SPY

Mon Nov 14, 2016 3:46 pm

So far I have purchased 2 ELM's one on ebay and one on amazon.

The big OBD Scan ELM.. "works" but of course doesn't do the protocol needed for Leaf.. Pairs with Tablet.. but Leaf Spy say it
doesn't support Leaf.

ok.

Bought a Rio Rand RD8 on Amazon. POS ! no lights, no blue tooth, no action.

So now I need a known good type/brand !!

I have a Brand New 2016 SV.. and I want to establish a baseline for the battery now...
but I'm SOL.

This worked for me

Works well when paired with Motorolla moto E, Nexus 4, and Samsung galaxy tab 2 7.
When paired with LG volt - it did not work.

Two OBD plugs cant be both bad.. You need to be in Leafspy, and go into settings to PAIR with the Bluetooth "OBDII... "something"" then go back and see if it is working... ALso, you must have the car ignition on..

The ELM 327 blue-tooth adapter needs to be the 1.5 version. The 2.1 version adapters do not work with Leaf Spy.

In a private message to me on 11/7, Jim (author of Leaf Spy and Leaf Spy Pro) wrote:

"For normal Bluetooth I currently recommend the Konnwei KW902 which is available from Amazon. But on the next release I will switch to recommending only Bluetooth 4.x LE OBDII adapters.

For the next official release of LeafSpy I will support the much easier to use Bluetooth 4.x LE OBDII adapters. The two that are supported are the LELink and the PLX Kiwi 3 both available from Amazon. These two adapters also work with the iOS version of LeafSpy.

The KW902 has worked flawlessly, but it sticks out too far. It got bumped out once already.

You should be using an extension cable or splitter anyway. I would hate to wear out the connector on the car.

Thanks all. I ordered the one manihan recommended.. since I have the current leaf spy and a tab 2 which is also now considered.."older"
it will be a considerable PITA if the dongle is longer than the small ones.

but oh well.

took me a while to find my own post again !
:oops:

is Bluetooth 4x some new Bluetooth protocol ?

I think he's referring to a version of Bluetooth: 4.x (e.g. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluetooth ... 4.0_.2B_LE).

http://www.electricvehiclewiki.com/Leaf ... th_Scanner has some recommendations for Android. Ignore them for iOS.

Konnwei arrived.. win one, lose one.

Per advice, I got a Konnwei KW902.. nicely packaged, nicely made.
Paired with Tab2 fine.
Paired with Leaf Spy Lite.. and works fine.

BUT...

It wont pair with Leaf Spy Pro.

tried cycling the car, cycling the Kw902, tried repairing with the Tab2.
no change.

Tried it with Lite going, tried it with Lite not going.

NFG .

Tried re-entering the password for the KW902.

I am connecting using blue tooth.


Am I ignoring something basic ??
