Turbo3, you, sir are absolutely correct! I have confirmed that by going into

Settings/Privacy/Location Services/Leafspy on my iPhone 8

and selecting

"Allow Location Access" to be set to "While using the App" (i.e ticked)

we successfully start distance/elevation displaying again (the Elevation and Speed are displayed at the top of the Graphs screen, and the graphing works when you start moving)!

This must have happened when I upgraded IOS to 11.2.6 just before I also updated Leafspy to v1.7.34 (I noticed I had an IOS update waiting to be done, so I did the IOS update first).

Note however, that the problem was also evident on another iPhone 6 that was still at IOS 11.1.2. When I upgraded Leafspy to 1.7.34 on that device, perhaps it defaulted the "Allow Location Access" setting to 'Never'?

Anyway, thanks again for assisting to get this sorted.

PS: Happy to help test new releases, but I guess I would still need to be enabled to access "TestFlight"!?

Cheers

Because of problems with the LELink^2 low power mode on 2018 Leafs I have released a new version (1.7.36) that disables that feature.

There are two parts to the problem. The first part is that the low power mode uses CAN activity to wake it up and only CAN activity. That is just fine for all vehicles but the 2018 Leaf. The 2018 Leaf has no CAN activity so it never wakes up.

The second and more important problem is that the way the LELink^2 low power feature was implemented once it enters low power mode it can only be awaken by CAN activity. This is true even when you unplug and plug again. Instead of powering up and timing out it comes up powered off. In a 2018 this means you can never power the LELink^2 up again without doing a hard reset by shorting some pins. Not something your typical user can do.

So for now it is safer for me to just disable this low power mode

If you have a 2018 Leaf and used the previous versions of LeafSpy that enabled low power mode there should be a way to get the LELink^2 running again. You need to have or have access to another vehicle (not a 2018 Leaf). Plug the LELInk^2 into it. If the power LED does not come on then turn the vehicle on and that should cause CAN activity. With the LELink^2 powered on you can now run version 1.7.36 of LeafSpy and it will connect and disable low power mode. Of course LeafSpy will not actually work (unless you are using a 2011-2017 Leaf) but it should connect to the LELink^2 and reconfigure low power mode off.

I seem to be having a similar issue with our new 2018 Leaf, and a new LE Link 2 just received from Amazon.
Plugged into the Leaf, I briefly got the red LED, but it quickly went to sleep. So I plugged the LE Link into my Nissan Rogue, where the red LED stayed on and the green did brief flashes. Leaf Spy pro did repeated retry to connect.

Moving back to the Leaf gave a brief red flash, and went back to sleep with no connection. IOS version 11.3, Leaf Spy version end .37

Suggestions?

Had you run any previous versions of LeafSpy prior to running 1.7.37 on the LELInk^2?

I now have set up the .csv files to save to Dropbox, and am planning a drive for about 300 KM to log some baseline data for the new 2018 Leaf.

I have some basic Excel skills, but was wondering if anybody has already done some nice templates to use the LeafSpy data?

I have seen that there is a Leaflogger website, but would prefer my own spreadsheet.

Suggestions appreciated.

I have my LeafSpy connected successfully, I can read from the device. However, instead of showing a graph of cell pair balances, I just get an empty graph. Could you suggest what I might be doing wrong?

Hi,

I have a UK Sunderland built Leaf 2 40kWh.

The mileage was set to miles but it was giving a strange figure. I changed the units to kms and the figure is now right, however, in the UK we use miles!

Nissan has messed things up for me on the second generation Leaf by not always using km for the odometer when read from the CAN bus. Instead they make it country specific so it can be either km or miles with no way to know.

In the next release you will see an option on the Units panel to handle your case.

Are you seeing the 96 Cell pair voltages on screen 1?

Can you take an ELM trace (see bottom of help file for how to do it) and send it to me?
