BTW, Shunt order came out as 4812 on a new install on a new device. Was that intended?

Also, can you explain what is actually happening when shunts are ON when not charging?

Thank you!
Yes 4812 is the current default. If you like a different value you can change it in Settings.

When a shunt is on a small load is applied to that cell pair to drain some energy from it to bring it into balance with the other cells.

It is the opposite of charging.

Does this mean that you're ready to tackle the next EV ?

Devin,
Does this mean it is working for you, or that the lights are flashing but you still can't get data from the car to the app?

It is fully working and showing all the right data for me now.

Devin and Turbo3,

Thanks, you saved me a lot of trouble. I just plugged the ELM327 I thought was defective into my Leaf, paired my Android phone with it (again, no passcode required), turned on the Leaf Spy Lite app, went into settings and switched to Port 16, exited the Leaf Spy Lite app and restarted, and viola, it connected and I was able to see the data. After a while of monitoring it and seeing it was stable, I upgraded to the paid Leaf Spy app and it still works.

By the way, my Approximate Remaining Battery Capacity (the number in parentheses at the top of Screen 1) says 90.49%. This was the key number I was looking for in purchasing the ELM327 device and installing the app. Does this mean I should expect 281 x 0.9049 = 254 gids at full charge? I rarely charge to 100% so am looking to calculate the value rather than measure it. The battery health seems OK for 29k miles and 28 months, but given I live in Seattle and have babied the battery I was hoping for a little more.

I have been running various versions of the app since May and have had no connection problems with my Kyocera eVent phone. I purchased the Pro version assuming that connection would be automatic but it wasn't.

With v0.26c, I was connecting on port 1 as recently as 9/10/13. Should I be trying port 16, or ??

I love the app!

Probably not for a long time in this kind of application... And you would need a 4S or better to use it... Better just to buy a very cheap old Android phone since it doesn't even need to be authorized... You can find them as cheap as 20 bucks...

Connection should be the same. Send me an ELM trace and I can take a look at what is going on. Look back a few pages to see how to take an ELM trace.

Do any lights flash on the ELM while the app is trying to connect?

If I get enough traces and it seems like the same problems as others I will certainly look into automating a fix inside the app. My goal is to have it work first time for all so I need feedback like this when it does not work. Only way to make the app better.

========================
Update: Rick has this working now. I suggested disable/enable Bluetooth or Reboot Phone. Not sure which one he tried but he reported to me it is working now.
