Delta between GOM & LeafSpy miles to 0%

Sun May 14, 2017 11:16 pm

I know the GOM isn't regarded as terribly accurate but it's some 20 miles more than the miles to zero % reading in LeafSpy even though my m/Kwh matches exactly @ 3.5 m/kWh. Is this a setting I've missed in LeafSpy or is the GOM that far off?

I can reset the trip odometer and check but haven't yet.

The GOM uses your recent miles/kWh

VERY recent, at that. So if, like most of us, you slow down the last few blocks before parking the car, it will always start with too optimistic a reading. Try using the accurate range estimator, of you have an SV or SL. Press the blue button on the steering wheel, and the Nav screen will give two estimates: the GOM estimate, and the more accurate one.

PLEASE don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

In another thread related to 30KwH batteries.. most of us just use 1%= 1 mile as a rule of thumb
this is pretty accurate for over-all mixed useage.

it will work for most instanteous uses EXCEPT UPHILL where you may use 2- to 4 times more power !
over routes you drive repeatedly.. you can keep track.

otherwise.. get the Leaf Range Estimator app.. which will figure your milage based on altitutde change, speed, and temperature

add 25% since it was designed for 24KwH batteries not 30 !
