I purchased this OBDII adapter on Amazon based upon reviews stating it worked with Leaf Spy Pro on IOS.

: Check Engine Light Scan Tool | WiFi Auto OBD2 Diagnostics ELM 327 Adapter | Universal Car Engine Scanner & Reader for iPhone or Android https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07195Y67Q/re ... CAbPZ3VTMB

The adapter is recognized in Setup on my phone. I open up Leaf Spy Pro on my phone, go into settings, choose the OBDII adapter, tap Done, and the app crashes.

I have rebooted the phone. I have turned the vehicle on and off. The same problem keeps happening. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is a new cost reduced (from a manufacturing point of view) WiFi OBDII adapter. It has two problems.

1. When reset it sends an invalid ASCII character that causes the current released version of LeafSpy to crash. This is fixed in a test release that you can have by sending me the email address you use on your iOS device.

2. Even with the crash fixed the new WiFi adapter has a bug that prevents if from handling the unique Nissan Leaf protocol.

You can verify you have this problem by requesting access to the latest test version which also logs the invalid data to the ErrData.txt file. You can then take an ELM trace (see bottom of help for how to do it) and send it to me and I can confirm problem 2.

I highly recommend getting the LELink Bluetooth 4.x LE OBDII adapter which can be ordered worldwide from this link. (I get no part of the purchase.)

Does anyone know the power consumption of the LeLink device? Just how "low energy" is Bluetooth LE? I can't find specs, and would like to leave plugged-in if possible. I'm looking for mA or mW, not anecdotal stories.
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

I read around 33.7 ma idle and 38.7 ma while LeafSpy is running so Bluetooth is actively sending data.

Update: The new LELink^2 takes this down to 0 ma in sleep mode (requires LeafSpy Pro iOS version 1.7.34 or higher).

Thanks. Do you mean the device is using those amounts, or is that the total dark current for the car?

I will PM you my email address. I had opted not to order the LeLink because of the truly awful reviews of the adapter. There is a serious issue with that adapter dying often, and from review dates it has been an ongoing and unaddressed issue stretching back several years. The adapter I chose was similarly priced, but didn’t have the reliability problems of the LeLink.

Just the device.

They offer a 2 year warranty so that should not be a problem. If you order from Amazon getting a replacement is easy. I have ordered three now and have not had a problem. BLE also requires a compatible app so that can also be a problem for a new user thinking it is like normal Bluetooth.

There is also a new LELink marked with a tiny superscript 2 after the"k" (look closely as it is hard to see on the clear plastic cover) that needs a new version of LeafSpy due to the way LeafSpy auto detect BLE devices.

Release version 1.7.34 is now waiting for Apple to review and release which should happen sometime Monday given they don't review on Sunday.

- Support for the new LELink^2 and its zero power mode. This is now the recommend OBDII adapter for all version of LeafSpy.
- Full support for the 2018 Leaf
- Support for Custom screens on screen 3. Create your own screen with just the information you want to see. Swipe up/down on screen 3 to see sample custom screen and load other custom screens. Tap Freeze button in lower right corner twice to Adjust Font size then tap top or bottom of screen to increase/decease font size.
- Motor/Inverter only mode for those using only the Motor/Inverter unit from the Leaf.
- Handle bad data from newer WiFi adapters and log bad data to ERRdata.txt file. The one WiFi that I have that does this also does not support the ELM commands so still cannot be used with the Leaf. But now it will not cause LeafSpy to crash.
- Added 1024x1024 icon to support higher resolution screens.
- New "Enable auto headlight" feature on those Leafs that did not originally come with this feature. Requires that the necessary hardware has been added to actually work.

Hi,

Today I received my ELM327 OBDII Wifi that I ordered from Amazon (https://www.amazon.es/dp/B00DE8AAX2/ref ... 81_TE_dp_1). I followed your WIFI help/settings but it does not work. Any solution? Do you think this device is not suitable for the LEAF?

The device shows a red led when connected to the LEAF. When I open the leafSpy app it finds the device on the settings but after "Register Current SSID" procedure, the LeafSpy stays yellow. In the OBDII you can find some "action" in the LED display (red always showing but some Blue/Green lights fast blinking) but that's it...

Thanks!
