How do you configure the OBDlink? I have LELink v.2 and it did not come with any kind of software but does connect to LeafSpy pro on a Samsung S6 just fine.
What can be configured on the LELink?

A future release of LeafSpy Pro will have an option to allow you to enable the zero power mode. The current release will always disable this feature.

However, this feature should not be enabled if you have a 2018 Leaf as it will result in the LELink^2 never coming out of zero power mode.

Ok great! I just didn't know what was configurable and wondered if data rate could be increased because the best response time I have gotten so far is 4 seconds, and the LELink is down to 6 seconds. I didn't know if that is what is to be expected or not.
Other than that, Leaf Spy is fantastic and VERY helpful!

BTW... I have read many posts about the bluetooth going to sleep during charge.
Is this due to the dongle loosing power or does the car just stop the data stream on the CAN bus?
If I could keep the dongle powered (moving the wire from pin 16 to 13 I think), would that keep the data stream active during a charge? I would really like to log the charge cycle while I am at work.

Which app on Android can I use to change settings on the LELink adapter? Like auto standby. Must the red light alway be on?

The currently released versions of LeafSpy will default to turning the auto zero power mode off when they starts up.

Best to wait until I add an option to LeafSpy to enable this feature.

Does that mean for a 2018 Leaf, I should not purchase LELink^2? Which OBD would you recommend instead?

Ok to buy the LELink^2 since LeafSpy keeps that feature turned off.

On some future release I will add an option for those with a 2011-2017 Leaf to enable the zero power mode. That will not be available if LeafSpy detects a 2018 Leaf.

It also seems the Konnwei KW903 (not the KW902) which is Bluetooth 4.x LE also works just like the LELInk. Still testing this with one user to verify. But the KW903 BTLE works fine for me on an Android device despite the labeling that it only works on iOS.

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.
