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.

OK to buy this one for Android?

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 bought the device I mentioned and got it to work seamlessly on a Samsung S9+. The only difference I note is that the car has to be on. Before I could monitor charging while car was off.
