Also includes support for the dual mode Viecar 4.0 Bluetooth 4.0 OBDII adapter. It is different from the LELink which operates as a Bluetooth 4.0 LE adapter for both iOS and Android. The Viecar operates in Bluetooth 4.0 LE mode for iOS but in Bluetooth 2.0 mode when connecting to an Android device.

For LeafSpy the LELink is best as Bluetooth 4.0 LE is the easiest to connect to as there is no pairing or port number in LeafSpy to handle and it works for both iOS and Android the same.

If however you also have Android devices and Android apps that only support Bluetooth 2.0 then the Viecar would be your best option at this time.


Been using this for a day or so now and am happy to say that I haven't seen a single crash since. It works great!

Release version 1.2.1 is waiting for review by Apple and hopefully will make it out before Apple suspends reviews for Christmas break Dec 22-29.

Test version 1.2.2 will also be out shortly that adds Bluetooth LE support for the Vgate iCar 3 Bluetooth LE adapter and the KiWi 3 Bluetooth LE adapter. I have the Vgate working now and am just waiting for the KiWi 3 to arrive (today?) to verify it works. This version has better Bluetooth 4.0 LE support in that users should be able to add any new Bluetooth 4.0 LE OBDII adapter they find by just updating a text file located in the iTunes accessible shared folder with the device's name without waiting for me to release new code. Hard coded names are currently "OBDBLE", "Viecar", "IOS-Vlink" and the name for the KiWi once I know it.

This test version also has a 500 times improvement in resolution of the HV Battery current. Instead of +/- 0.5 amps it is now +/- 0.001 amps.

Here are the currently support Bluetooth 4.0 LE adapters by test version 1.2.2.

Hey Turbo3. One thing I have noticed is that the app chirps at me when I turn the car off and it loses connection. Is there a setting to disable that? I have all sounds silenced on my phone but for some reason the sounds coming from LeafSpy don't comply with system wide sound settings.

That sound is a positive indication that the current trip data has been successfully saved and you can exit your Leaf.

I could added an option to disable that and any other sounds like tire pressure warnings.

There are times I get odd ball Outside Temp ratings. For example, my Leaf is charging now in the garage and I get "3" as the outside temp when the actual temp is near 40 F. Any directions on this? Thanks, Pat Campbell

While charging the outside temp is not available but they still send a number which is what you see. I think I see 9 from my Leaf when charging.

Thanks Turbo3 for all the great info. I was following this thread as I'd had the same issues as rreitz and had similar problems when I ran the test from itunes. Turns out that I too must have had a faulty LE-Link unit as all working fine this time round with no issues after getting a replacement sent out. I'd bought an iphone from a site online second-hand so was preying that it wasn't a fault with the phone instead as one of the reasons i'd got an iphone was to be able to use it with my Leaf. Happy days! LeafSpy v1.1.6 running like a treat on my iphone5s with iOS 9.2.

Say have you looked at SOH% on 2015 leafs with IOS Leafspy?

viewtopic.php?f=31&t=21117 has a 2015 with what looks like a pack that is about to lose it's first bar (down to 87% by Ahr) but still showing near 99% SOH.

I'm wondering if Nissan changed something or if this is a leafspy bug.

dumb question that i could not find an answer for by searching:

can Leaf Spy talk to the bluetooth version of WattsUp instead of using one of these bluetooth dongles?

thanks,

rob
