Turbo3, can you remove the recommendation for the KW902 from https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... f_Spy_Lite?

Right now, it still says
Due to a recent cost reduction (and feature reduction) many of the cheap ELM327 OBDII Bluetooth adapters from Asia no longer work with the Leaf and report themselves to be version 2.1. The only one currently recommended is the Bluetooth Konnwei KW902 which still supports all the needed ELM commands to communicate with the Leaf.

Today I tried this dongle https://www.kjell.com/no/produkter/elek ... gK-bvD_BwE

and I received an error "ELM327 does not support AT command FCSH which is needed to communicate with your leaf"

Hi there, I've just bought a Leaf and Leaf Spy seems to be an essential piece of kit. However I'm getting the same problem with two different OBD2 devices and two different phones so before I buy yet another I thought I'd better ask!

1. Both devices pair with no problem
2. Leaf Spy Lite selects the paired device fine
3. Leaf Spy then runs through 'Config ELM 01' up to 'Config ELM 09' in a yellow box, bottom right.
4. At 'Config ELM 09' it stops. The lights on the dongle are flashing and this is the ELM trace:

You should be getting a warning message that those adapters do not support the required commands to communicate with the Leaf.

You need to use an OBDII adapter that support the full ELM command set. Most of the cheap ELMs on the market now do not support the full command set anymore due to cost reducing the components.

Try one from VEEPEAK.

@Turbo3: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... f_Spy_Lite still says "The only one currently recommended is the Bluetooth Konnwei KW902 which still supports all the needed ELM commands to communicate with the Leaf.".

If you can update the Lite listing to disrecommend the KW902 like the Pro version...

Thanks for the reply, when you say "should be getting a warning message" where does that message appear? I didn't see it anywhere but that probably just means it was right in the middle of the screen in big letters!

OK, I now have a working ODB2 device. Just to share with you what works and what doesn't:

Not working despite one review to the contrary: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01 ... UTF8&psc=1

Not working: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B00 ... UTF8&psc=1

Working (yay!): https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01 ... UTF8&psc=1

Even better news is that it's currently on special offer for £8 but only 2 left in stock.

I now know that I have a SoH of 88% and a 23mV headline figure... I wonder if that's good!

Best wishes, Peter

Based on the recommendations I saw on the "Pro" app listing I bought this:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00QJRYMFC/

I have a Galaxy J7 and a Leaf 2016 (the middle model). The lite app won't connect. If I click on btle in the app's connect menu, nothing happens.

There is a newer version of the LELink that requires slightly different setup. If you email me I can send you the small text file that replaces the one in the folder LeafSpy uses on your phone.
