I just purchased that exact one and have not been able to get it to work on my phone, Samsung Galaxy S7. I'm looking to purchase a used Leaf soon and I wanted to use LeafSpy Pro to evaluate vehicles. I've been trying to use the manufacturer's app and even that cannot connect to the unit. I'm working with the manufacturer to try and figure out what is going on.
Just tried on my S7 with a similar no-connect to LeafSpy, not having used LeafSpy on this phone. Not only must you turn-on BT,
but you need to get it in the pairing mode, i.e. a less obvious step with the S7. Besides sliding the BT switch, tap the BT function.
Try this with your PC to verify you have BT fully setup and pairing first.
Did you at least get the S7 to pair with the OBDII device? This is done before even starting the LeafSpy app.
I was not able to get my S7 to pair with the LELink unit. I have my phone connected to a lot of BT things so I know it works normally. I turned off BT, turned it back on. It saw the adapter, but it wouldn't connect. I also tried using their one Android app and it was unable to connect. I contacted the company and they responded very quickly. They had me try a number of OBDII software but none of it worked. Eventually they stopped responding so I returned the unit to Amazon and picked up a OBDLink LX. $14 more but I feel it is a way better product. Solid construction: the casing doesn't feel like it would crack if I dropped it. The LED indicators are labeled and it has a physical button to restart the pairing process. You don't have to short out two pins to reset it, which is what you have to do with the LELink. Plugged it into my car (not a Leaf) and my phone was able to start the pairing process automatically. The app for the unit works pretty well, but has some areas that could be improved. The other OBDII apps could see it. I don't have a Leaf yet so I can't say that it works with LeafSpy, but at least I know it works with my phone.
Also comes with a license for OBDII Windows software so you can use it with your laptop to diagnose your car (haven't tried that yet). It also uses a unique pairing code, not the standard "1234". It is slightly larger, but that works better for me because it makes it easier to grip when removing. The software does not work with Apple products.
Now I just have to get a Leaf.
