Maybe since I've been on vacation it's been too long since I last used it, but does the car need to be fully on for Leafspy to record charging? I coulda sworn I used to be able to get a charge graph while in accessory mode (one power button press, without brake pressed). Now it seems to only log if I do second press of power button ( brake off).

For the older Leafs you could graph charging without the Leaf being on. For the newer ones things have changed. I think on one new one I tested you needed to have the Leaf full on first to get the graph going and then you could turn the Leaf off. You also might be able to start a graph if you start charging just after you turn your Leaf off. The key is that the VCM ECU still needs to be awake to get the data from the battery controller. The VCM is the bridge between the CAR CAN bus the OBDII Adapter is plugged into and the EV CAN bus the battery controller is on.

OK, thanks, I'll have to look into that. I have a 2013 SV and like I said coulda sworn before it worked no problem with it off, or at least started shortly after turning off (and staying off). Pretty sure most of the time doing quick charges I would sit in the car accessory mode only. Leaf wouldn't start charging w/o power off, and don't think I would have done brake press full on, since I just wanted to sit and chill and listen to the radio. At most right before finishing I would hit power again to see if the Leaf SoC indicator matched LeafSpy. Then after Aug 12? or thereabouts all my charge records had like 2 or 3 points in the CSV at the start and nothing else. Not sure if the cause was an iOS update (now on 9.3.3) or a LSP beta update handling things differently or something else. BTW I'm using a WiFi adapter, but even leaving LSP as foreground app didn't help.

Thinking somehow my install had glitched I deleted LSP and reinstalled from scratch, and even that didn't work, so it wasn't until I had tried power button a second time that charge data started transferring. Fiddling around last night, noticed with it off the little green connecting box runs 14 up to 38, cycling, but with it on it pulls some higher numbers like 162 or 164, if some of those are the ones associated with pulling charge data.

Ok state 38 rings a bell. I think there is a bug in the latest test version where I added reading the steering wheel angel that causes this problem. Will be fixed in next test release.

I have ordered one for testing. The adapter must support the ELM327 AT command set including setting the header response information (AT SH, AT FCSH, AT FCSD).

I have one that looks like this one from Xtool and it does not support the AT command set so can not be used with the Leaf.


Thanks - let us know your results. Asking for such (AT commands) information from the (Chinese) suppliers is usually at best very confusing! :cry:

I just received this OBDII adapter and did a quick test. This adapter does not seem to support all the needed commands. So it is not suitable for the Leaf or LeafSpy use. When I have more time I will look to see exactly which command it is rejecting.

Appreciate your attention to so many details associated with your app! It appears that right now the LELink is the best for us iOS ops system users.

I just purchased the Kiwi 3 and installed it in my car, fired up the IOS app, and it connected immediately and started working, wow, that was too easy! :-)
Thanks for putting together such a great app and for making it available on the iPhone.

Just purchased the LELink and LeafSpy Pro. It hooked up immediately and the app works great. Another good testimonial to both the LELink and LeafSpy.

iOS only supports Bluetooth 4.x LE OBDII adapters. The Konwei will not work. I recommend the LELink from Amazon.

For a Bluetooth 4.x LE OBDII adapter to be detected by LeafSpy its ID must be "known".

The current "known" devices are:
OBDBLE (LELink)
Viecar
IOS-Vlink
Kiwi
IOS-HHOBD
Carista

Ones that don't work are: (don't support the necessary commands to communicate with a Leaf)
dnt OBD2
Autophix
ios Diagbox

Thanks for your great advice
is this one right

This one worked straight away no problems :D

Tutbo3;
After a few days, it appears LELink has lost it's "link". No update - the bottom right is yellow and states "config elm 00" - no cycling of codes and no update of data. Is there a "reset" that can be sent? I'd like NOT to disconnect and re-connect the dongle itself.

I do have an app called LightBlue that can send ascii codes (ATXXX) directly to the dongle?
