Re: Disable VSP sound by software

The sounds appear to stay off until enabled by the app. I can confirm the stupid backup sound is gone. It does not disable the beeping you get when you lock/unlock the doors (and I am ok with that).

It may be stupid for the leaf driver but I can verify it's not stupid for the cyclist whom I would have run over had he not stopped upon hearing that sound when backing out of my driveway before dawn one morning not too long ago.
The cyclist had no reflective clothing, it was dark and bushes covered any possible view from the end of the driveway.
I did get out and apologize , but he realized the situation and was VERY THANKFULL for the back up warning.
Previous to that time my thoughts were " it sure would be nice to disable that beep beep sound as to not wake the neighbors" but now that seems frivolous.

Or are the sounds re-enabled every time you start the car, like the VSP Off button behavior?

The change is a configuration change so is valid until changed again by LeafSpy Pro. The configuration is stored on the VSP board in non-volatile storage so loss of 12 volts does not reset it.

This change is special in that as far as I can tell Nissan's Consult 3+ has no access to these settings.

I don't remember hearing a specific noise from VSP when you start the car? The car plays it's little tune but I don't think that's from the VSP?
I know the car beeps when you stop it. I assume this is the stop sound?

The VSP board has two speaker outputs. One is the external VSP speaker that makes the outside sounds the other is under the dash and makes the turn ON/Off sounds.

Can someone check if you disable all 7 sounds do the turn signals still make a sound? How about Warning flasher sound?

I will be releasing another test version that tries to make it clear you must have the Leaf ON (dash gauges active) to use the VSP Settings page. There is also a Read button until you make a change so if you get the Not Supported message you can try again.

2011/2012 models (perhaps other years outside the US) have their VSP board connected directly to the VCM and Combination meter so there is no CAN connection. Which means LeafSpy does not have direct access to the VSP board.

There may however be settings on the Combination meter to do some of these functions if someone (pointing to first post ;-)) would like to look for them.

I have LeafSpy Pro that I got through Amazon, does this mean to get this latest Google Play version with the VSP settings I need to pay again through Google Play?

No, the VSP version will make its way to Amazon when released. Right now it is just in testing.

It does mean you will not be able to access the test version which is only available through Google's testing program.

Vehicle Start Sound is definitely the "song" that plays when starting the car.

The manufactured whine when driving, audible when you start moving, actually turns on and off with the "Drive Start Sound", not the "Drive Sound" checkbox.

None of the settings affect the hazard or turn signal sounds. As magico13 has already stated, none of these will disable the triple beep when leaving the car on and exiting vehicle. Sound C is definitely charge status (beeps when plugging in, etc) as well as the triple beep unlocking charge port door inside the car.

I wondered if Sound A and/or Sound B could be associated with LBW dash beeps, but I don't get there routinely.

I would just submit that the backup sound may be annoying but it's a significant safety feature. The kids in my alley and the Walgreens's parking lot don't pay attention, I don't mind it.
