My first response was something like 'just try it yourself' but that sounded snarky so I changed it. I have VW, Subaru and Nissan cars at home. I have a OBD reader especially for VW and it works flawlessly there but is hit/miss on the other cars. And vice versa. In brief, not all OBDII readers work on all makes the same and even the 2 different Nissan cars (2000 and 2017) are very different, so year and model may affect the functionality as well. So really, the only way to know is to try it.


I guess that's what I'll have to do. Just wanted to avoid the effort to learn/download another app and just use a familiar interface. This is not a car I have at home and I don't want to spend a lot of time trying apps while I'm looking at it. Thanks.

I very much doubt it. LeafSpy is looking for a specific set of ECUs that the Leaf uses.

Started having issue where LEAF Spy does not automatically connect to dongle. I got the new one you recommended. To connect I have to go in and reselect the same option.

Don't know if this is the correct thread but it is about leaf spy pro.
I have version 0.45.119 en and WOW it shows TONS of very useful info. I did see where it doesn't read tire pressure yet, so that was answered, and the GID% shows infinity... both I know will be worked out.

My question is what is the update rate that can be expected? The fastest I have gotten so far is about 4 seconds per sample using a Bafx obd2 dongle, and a LElink dongle coming in at 6 seconds per sample.

Supposedly the LELink is "configurable", but the idiot sheet that came with the dongle has no instructions to change any parameters.
Also, is it normal to have the data stop about 60 seconds after turning off the ignition (and I use that term loosely)?
Thanks!

You can fix the infinity Gids on a 2018 by going into Settings/Battery panel and pressing the "Restore Defaults" button.

As for the refresh speed, the new Custom Screen will get a new core code update that only reads the data you select for viewing. The fewer items and/or selecting items from a single ECU will speed up the refresh rate as only those items will be read from the Leaf.

I have not decided how I will handle logging on the Custom Screen.

I have the new core code working on my Android test version but it will most likely be released first on the iOS version.

Theoretically, if you only read one parameter that comes directly from the CAN bus on a 2011-2017 Leaf the rate could be as fast as 100 updates per second. Not sure I would actually update the screen that fast. For a 2018 Leaf the fastest might be around 10 updates per second for a single item. Direct reading from the CAN bus is not supported by Nissan starting with the 2018 Leaf.

on non 2018 models; Both DC and AC charging speeds are listed in "OBC out" You can also approximate a KW value with Voltage * current.

on 2018 models; OBC out only works on AC. so the voltage* current option is the only way. This value "is" affected by any load in the car. IOW; turn on AC, you will see a lower value but if your only concern is how fast of a charge you are getting, this is what you want to look at anyway.

With either value, you will need to add a time calculation to determine kwh received.

thanks for your answer! I was asking for the 2018 model and forgot to mention that, sorry :)
