I would like to know this, too. I've purchased 3 of these--all different, generic models at about $15/each--in the last 2 months, and none of them have been consistently reliable. I would GLADLY pay $100 or $200 for a product that's not made-in-China junk that would last and last.mayo wrote:Can someone point me in the direction of a good elm327. The cheap one I bought doesn't have the AT commands Leaf Spy needs. Thanks, happy new little leaf owner.
Thanks, T3. I have ordered one of these (for about $70), and I'm looking forward to using it.Turbo3 wrote:I would recommend the OBDLink LX Bluetooth. Faster and supports additional AT commands that LeafSpy will use if detected.

I can't believe you're having so many problems with BT adapters. I have two of the ones you claim failedMartinChico wrote:This one lasted for about a month:

This one worked very well--for one day:
The "new" ones have dropped support for the commands needed to communicate with the Leaf. They are less capable than the "old" ones. They like to label them as version 2.1 but they are actually not even at the version 1.5 level. They just give it a newer name and give you a cheaper product. If it does not work with the current Lite version it will not work with the other versions of LeafSpy.knightmb wrote:I bought this one this week Mini V2.1 OBD2 OBDII Bluetooth Interface Auto Viecar Car Diagnostic Scanner Adapter Reader Scan Tool for Android and everything is good up to the point where LeafSpy complains it is "too new" of a version of the ELM327? Is that just a limitation of the free "Lite" version or an indicator that the Pro version will have the same issue?
