Certainly a legitimate point. Our society is remarkably tolerant of taking lives if the instrument is a motor vehicle. And while the likelihood of ever being prosecuted is undoubtedly low, I'm more concerned about the moral and ethical aspect. Being able to get away with something is not the measure of right and wrong. The law might forgive me. Could I forgive myself? And that's really the end of what I have to say on the subject. :)
I noticed you're still working with polymers.

A fair concern and fair question. Operating motor vehicles safely requires the exercise of good judgement on all our parts. In as much as I can trust any other person behind the wheel, I'm comfortable letting them decide whether the VSP functions are needed or beneficial in the conditions they operate in. Certainly a Leaf driver who has opted to do without a VSP sound is likely to be more aware of the tradeoffs of that than a driver of one of the vast majority of vehicles which have no such function available in the first place.

I found this VSP disable sound feature a godsend. Wish I was following the forum a little more frequently.
My neighbors thank you, too.
I turned all the sounds off so I'm completely stealth in drive or reverse.
I'll update later with how many old ladies I've taken out backing up at church without the VSP enabled.

Hi folks,

To Turbo3 or anyone who knows the answer, is the added feature available in the Leaf Spy (neither Pro nor Lite) app?

VSP control is only available on the LeafSpy Pro version as a Service function. It only works on 2013 and newer Leafs as 2011/2012 Leafs have a fixed non-CAN connected VSP board.

I have reports from 2018 owners that it does work for them.

That's an old version. You need to update to the latest version.
