Re: Leaf Spy and Leaf Spy Pro

Fri Dec 22, 2017 12:48 pm

I imagine the Amazon appstore version updates later? I imagine eventually it catches up. I bought Pro on Amazon but obviously it doesn't register that I have a license on the google play store.

Android version seems to list only 2 usable Bluetooth 4.0 adapters currently, the LELin and the Kiwi.
iOS has viecar, carista, h580, and vgate. Is there any reason these last 4 don't/cant work with Android versions?

Even within iOS the Vgate it's also not clear which version is the IOS-Vlink, I tried amazon with "ios Vlink" in search and it actually popped up 2 veepeak units (one Bluetooth 4.0 the other a wifi veepeak).

If I search vgate vlink instead it pops up only vgate units, one of them an iCar Pro BLE 4.0 unit that claims iOS & android support.
If this is supported by Leaf Spy on both Android and iOS I would give it a shot. A little leery since I tried the iCar 3 BLE version prior and despite their claim of auto sleep/wake function, somehow on my Leaf (2013 SV) it would only sleep, and never rewake (taking a full unplugging to rewake). Hm, OK going back to the product page on that iCar it seems they updated to say to save energy it requires an unplug to rewake, exactly how mine acted, whereas their original specs claimed rewake.

Tempted to try the vGate Pro (only $25-29) now that it again claims auto-wake, IF it might eventually be made to work with both iOS and Android versions of Leaf Spy. The veepeak ($30) would be OK too if it worked both platforms. Although LELink is 1 of 2 that are currently listed as working for both iOS and Android, higher price ($35) and seems to get a lot of QC problems, breakdown even after a while of working.

If a Bluetooth 4.x adapter is not listed but is listed as supported on the iOS version it just means the adapter default to normal Bluetooth mode (not BLE) when connecting to an Android device.

I really don't want to be on a test distribution.

Any idea as to when the release of the next version?

Does your Leaf have a stand-alone compressor that plugs into the AUX (used to be cigarette lighter)? My 2015 "S" does, but I've only fished it out of the trunk area and stared at it ... haven't actually used it.

And sorry if this older issue has already been addressed/resolved in this loooooong thread stretching over the years. HTH.
2015 Leaf S. Bought 2 year lease turn-in with 14,500 miles. Drive about 14k miles/year. Most charging from 'free juice' at nearby ChargePoint or Nissan or other free L2 public chargers within walking distance. ICE is rarely driven pickup truck.

Pre-newbie with 2015 "S" I've owned for just at 12 months ... considering trial of Leaf Spy / Lite / Pro.

I've been working my way thru about 30 pages of the 170+ pages of this thread, and came across the reference to a separate "Leaf Spy Lite" thread/topic. However, when I click on that link, it takes me to the Amazon pages for purchase.

Is there a link to the separate thread for the Lite version?

(and sorry if I should have looked harder)

Click "Search" above. In the search box enter "Leaf Spy Lite", but before you press enter select "Under Topic titles only" at the "Search within". This will give in exactly 1 search result, the thread you are looking for.

@Turbo3: https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... .Leaf_Spy1 for non-Pro Leaf Spy still says
The only one currently recommended is the Bluetooth Konnwei KW902 which still supports all the needed ELM commands to communicate with the Leaf.
Can you remove that or change the verbiage to what the Pro version says?

https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... af_Spy_Pro says
The previously recommended Bluetooth Konnwei KW902 OBDII adapter is also no longer recommended as a batch of defective ones have made their way into the market. These will basically short out your Leaf's CAN bus (or any CAN bus they are plugged into). But when removed do not seem to cause any lasting damage.
For newer folks who don't know what I'm talking about, see http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=23776.

'13 Leaf SV w/premium package (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium packages (lease over, car returned)

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

You need to be running the latest test version of LeafSpy Pro. Then start it and you will still get the message that Dropbox is being disabled. Go into Settings/Dropbox and Enable Dropbox again. On exiting Settings you will (after a few seconds) get the web page to login into Dropbox and allow LeafSpy access.
