Re: Leaf Spy Lite (previously Leaf Battery App)

Sat Sep 14, 2013 2:32 pm

If have just released a new version of Leaf Spy Lite. It is a small update so is still v0.27.

It allows the selection of "Secure" connection instead of the default of "Insecure". The difference being that for Insecure you need to supply a port number (default is Port 1) whereas with Secure you do not.

If you have trouble connecting with the default setting of "Port 1" then try going to the last entry in Port selection (Settings/System panel). It will be the last choice after "Port 30" at the bottom. Exit app then restart and see if that helps.

I would be interested to know if for those that had to select Port 16 if this option also works for them.

For now it is only available in Leaf Spy Lite but if I hear positive reports that it works in some cases I will add to the other versions of Leaf Spy.

I know for a fact that "Secure" does not work on the Nexus 7 which I have and is the reason I switched to the "Insecure" version with port number.

You may get a request for the pairing code the first time you use "Secure".

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!
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.
I did disable/enable Bluetooth and assured that no OBDII devices showed up as "available devices" when Bluetooth was enabled. Jim suggested that I unplug/replug the ELM327 to get a fresh start, which I did. I am now happily operational with Leaf Spy Pro v0.27.4!

It'll probably be best to go through the pains of getting OSX to run in VMWare. Are you looking for any help in porting it to OSX?

Just started looking into this. I see there is software out there that lets you run the development on a Windows PC (Mobione) but don't know what if any restrictions it has on the apps I could develop. My app would need to handle the WiFi stream coming from a WiFi OBDII adapter.

One advantage of a WiFi OBDII adapter would be speed of transfer over the 9600 baud the Bluetooth adapter limits me to.

So at the moment I am looking for help in setting up the right environment to port Leaf Spy to iOS.

Perhaps I should start a separate thread for this topic.

Dear Jim,
The Leaf Spy battery app is so very cool - it makes all the other meters obsolete, including your own! Even though, I don't have an android device nor even a LEAF anymore, I'd like to donate to your efforts. Can I send it to your email using paypal?

To all users of Leaf Spy:

Please consider contributing information on battery capacity loss (strongly preferred you have the P3227 update first if your Leaf is 2011 or 2012) to this thread:

The data is being used to help calibrate the Battery Aging Model. We have about 18 reports so far, but need a lot more. Thanks.

I am getting ready to release the next versions of the app (v.28)

Next features and fixes.

* Auto switching to Port 16 if Port 1 is found to be used by Bluetooth Hands-Free device
* Screen 1 portrait mode QC & L1/L2 counts now have labels
* If connection to Leaf is interrupted for more than 30 seconds app will disable keeping the screen active. When you leave your Leaf the app will no longer try to keep the screen active. After 30 seconds your normal display timeout settings will take affect and turn the screen off after your selected timeout. This is all conditional on having the "Stay Awake" checkbox checked.

I should have this up for beta testing tomorrow.

=================================
Update: Uploaded and ready for beta testing
To become a Google beta tester email me your email address.

I have Leaf Spy Lite installed on my Kyocera event; no problem with setup and it works fine, nice app. But I've been trying to buy Leaf Spy via Google Play and I keep getting the message that there's a technical problem and I can't get it, or they can't process my order at this time. I don't think it's a credit card problem because I've tried two cards. I've also tried using both the device and my PC.
