I successfully turned off the Drive Start Sound, Drive Sound, and Backup Beep in my 2013. Thank you!

If "Drive Start Sound" controls the outside sound heard at low speed what sound does the "Drive Sound" control (inside or outside)?

Is "Vehicle Start Sound" both the turn on and turn off sounds/songs heard inside?

I am updating the Help file so need good descriptions for each option. If you were a new user what would help you understand the sound being controlled?

What I found is that the low-speed VSP sound is made up of two parts, both heard outside the vehicle:
  • an initial "whoosh" that lasts under .5s (Drive Start Sound)
  • the "whine" that goes on until 18MPH (Drive Sound).
I initially only turned off the Drive Sound and found the initial "whoosh" without the rest of the "whine" kind of odd because it cuts off abruptly; that's when I turned that off also. (especially since the "whoosh" would happen every time I stepped on the accelerator after being fully stopped)

I'll check what happens when turning off the other sounds.

I verified that is is both inside sounds.

Also, Sound C seems exactly as magico13 wrote here:

Edit the second: C seems to control all of the noises related to charging. With just C and the standard 4 disabled I didn't get sounds when opening the charge port, plugging in the charge handle, the EVSE and the car verifying connection (when the lights for the timer start "running"), or when overriding the charge timer.

Open Google Play App, find Leaf Spy Pro. Scroll to the very end. You'll see "enroll in beta" or something like that. Check that box.

Go get yourself a coffee or hot tea. About 5 minutes later, when you open Google Play Apps, you'll see a "Beta" among the tabs, on the very right. You'll see the beta version of leaf spy pro. You can now install it.

In the settings, don't forget to enable "Service Screen".

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this, I got rid of those annoying driving and backup sounds. My neighbors will be very happy, especially for that backup beeps. Mine is a 2013 S BTW.

Note that I could not figure out what these are for: "Sound A", "Sound B". I tried disabling/enabling them, and nothing changed. However, when I disabled Sound A checkbox and then reenabled it, a $100 bill appeared somewhere from below, just like K.I.T.T. did in Knight Rider. Sound B only gave $50. I guess you need to change the descriptions like $100 and $50 :-).

I concur Scaramanga . The whoosh start up I would probably eliminate , but for safety reasons the back up and drive sound I would prefer to keep.

On my car drive start sound does nothing (I've never heard any kind of initial woosh).

It appears there's no way to switch on a sound that's disabled at the factory (eg. in my case the drive start sound, and reverse beeps). I'd have a play with the codes on the first page but don't really know what they're doing beyond the obvious, so may not get anywhere (eg it looks like enable is 0x10.. what happens if I chuck 0xff at it..)

(also only 7 settings for a 3 bit register.. one obvious missing one to try..).

Edit: Spent a morning on it. Typing the commands in the first post has no effect on the VSP, so after trying some different things stopped there.. I don't know enough about the protocol to go any further. Would have loved to get this working (would kill for reversing sounds or having lights that come on when it's raining). Couldn't even get my laptop to work with it.. I ended up typing commands into the phone..

Works great on my car. As others have said C is charge related sounds.

Thanks, Turbo3 for this cool addition to a great app.
