No problem I can wait.

One thing, you should really be posting in the "iOS LeafSpy Pro Support" thread not in "Leaf Spy Lite". LeafSpy Lite is the free android version of LeafSpy and you are running the Apple iOS version LeafSpy Pro. That is why I thought you had LeafSpy Lite.

Since you have LeafSpy Pro it would also be helpful if you enabled Logging in addition to enabling Trace ELM.

For Logging settings use:
Enable Data Logging = ON
Sync Interval = 2 sec
Append YYMMDD to file name = ON

Then send me the Log_xxxx.cvs and TRC_xxx.txt files after you try charging again. You will need to use iTunes to get access to the files.

The iOS version does not currently run in the background so LeafSpy must be in the foreground. You can't switch to another app or back to the Home screen as LeafSpy will be suspended by iOS if not in the foreground.

Yup, I am frustrated about getting the right version of OBD2. 2.1 version was already sent to me after a long wait from China and it was supposed to be a 1.5. Looking for 6-9 dollars including shipping, arriving to my house soon, able to operate two at the same time without conflict(2 cars), super mini size, and Bluetooth. Also, without virus's on the software disk. Can anyone point me in that direction please?

Edit: 8/9/15

Finally got a good ones at Amazon from China vendor Sannysis that works and was exactly what specifications I was looking for and they work!

The Konnwei KW902 is the only one I can recommend. Version numbers are useless as most manufacturers from Asia just make up their own numbers the higher the better. You need one with a PIC processor to have the best chance of it supporting the ELM commands need for the Leaf. The official ELM version 2.1 command set supports all the commands needed for the Leaf just like version 1.5 did but the ones from Asia are not official.

You can not ask them if their adapter supports the Leaf as they have no idea what that means.

Anyone making a recommendation has no control over what is on the disk that comes with it. For LeafSpy you don't need anything on the disk and can throw it away.

OK, thanks for your help. I was hoping to find one that matched the criteria that I was looking for. Super mini and shut off, cheap and in the States. Have you done a purchase since Jan 2015? I have read in few forums that no one is having any luck and more than 20 sellers have been polled. Of course, many sellers have different names even though they are the same vendor. Speak EV forum, out of the UK, says they have a vendor there, but I was hoping to find one in the States. Since they all originate from Asia, it seems like a long spin on the roulette wheel.

I'm stepping into the waters for the first time, here. I ordered the OBII port extension cable and Bluetooth dongle suggested by the EV Wiki, now I'm trying to decide on a phone for both the car and my personal use. Is the Moto G 3rd generation phone with Android 5.1 compatible? I have Virgin Mobile, and lots of account credit for a new phone, but very limited options. If it isn't, can anyone suggest a good older phone I can buy used on Craigslist or Ebay that will work well?

Kyocera Event:

Currently cheaper at Walmart than off Amazon (though it has been seen on Amazon for as little as $39.99 before today).
+1 I use the Kyocera Event for development.
The device does not have to be activated with the carrier to work with LEAF Spy.

But it is two years later now and there may be better choices now.

Just to be clear: the phone can be configured to a carrier like Virgin Mobile, but can can still be used without activating it? If so, I think I'll just pick up a new Event for $25 and use it as a dedicated device.

Yes, that is what a lot of people particularly iPhone users have reported doing till LEAF Spy Pro was developed for iOS.
I have not done it myself.

You will have to search for details on how to get the app from the Google Play Store without the phone being activated.
I don't remember the details but it is discussed either in this topic or somewhete else on MNL.

Without cell contract you just have to log onto WIFI at home or at a business to download the leafspy app and once you have the app you can turn off data and wifi and just use bluetooth for the OBDII if you want to save power (turning off the data radio will save power).
