Re: Leaf Spy and Leaf Spy Pro (previously Leaf Battery App)

Tue Nov 26, 2013 2:46 am

Version 0.29.16 of Leaf Spy Pro has been uploaded to the beta test site. Should take a couple of hours to show up.

* Fixed Outline font being using for graphic text on Android KitKat 4.4
* Fixed negative temperatures not displayed correctly
* Possible fix for 2013 models having high beams look like the lights are off
* Final version of DTC Clearing code. Scrolling supported if you have a large number of DTCs
* Added "Secure" option to port number selection

Beta testers give it a try and report any issues. If no problems this will be moved to release stage.

Request: when first starting the app, can we have the display default to night mode until it detects the ELM?

Otherwise, I'm stuck with a really bright display until it makes a connection, which is not ideal in the dark.

Just tap the little light bulb in lower left corner to force night mode.

I just used the beta app (29.16) to check and clear DTCs.
2011 SL with QC, with the car fully Ready.

I checked and the app reported just one:
B2820 charger...

Clearing did not report which DTCs it was going to clear,
which would have been a helpful confirmation.

It just said the Charger, and that it would clear DTC and FFD (?)...
Apparently the Diagnostic Trouble Codes and the Freeze Frame Data.

Must they both be cleared together?

I asked it to clear, and it did, and took me immediately
back to the Read DTC page, and automatically re-read
the DTCs. There were none reported.
So, apparently it worked.

I forgot to try to power off/on and drive.
will do so now. Edit: car drives OK, but
I have not tried charging.

I will try another car later.

When Clearing DTCs you get to select the ECU unit (Charger, BCM, ABS ...) you can not select an individual DTC. If you only have DTCs from a single ECU then the ECU selection list will only have that one ECU listed. If you had DTCs from other ECUs the selection list would be longer.

Clearing a DTC also clears its associated Freeze Frame Data. It would make no sense to clear just one and not the other. The DTC points to the FFD.

After Clearing an ECU the app automatically does a Read ECU to confirm it has been cleared. If the cause of the DTC was not corrected the the DTC will come back.

I just cleared DTCs on two more 2011 SL LEAFs.

The first had one DTC about low FL tire pressure, that
subsequently had been pumped up.

In ckearing, I hit the Ok to clear on the warning message,
and nothing visible happened, and the code was still there.

Trying again, the yellow wait/clearing box appeared, the
code was gone, and the car drove OK.

The second had 7 DTCs, in 3 different controller units.
Choosing the desired radio button did not work very well,
with something like 3 out of 4 touches doing nothing.

When the desired controller was selected, the clearing did
not happen several times after answering "yes" to the warning
message. Eventually the yellow wait/clearing box appered,
and we got all three ECUs cleared.

So, it worked, but (on my Vizio VTAB1008 Tablet, which usually
has very reliable touches) it seemed as if the LEAF Spy Pro was
having trouble getting the touch input reliably.

In contrast, both the Ok to the app's Exit message, and the radio-
button selection of ELM327 Bluetooth devices always work well.

A wonderfully helpful function, THANKS.

Gary,
Thanks for the report on test version 0.29.16. I will remove the code that was probably causing the Clearing to sometimes abort after you selected "Yes".

The release version of Leaf Spy Pro will now be 0.29.17.

You can just post your suggestions here. Always looking for ways to improve the app.

Thanks!

My suggestion is on a basic level. And that is that the already outstanding "information model" should progress to a "computation model."

In other words, the user clicks "Start" and the program records initial readings. When they choose to "End," there is a calculation made up of the total amount of miles traveled, kWh used, etc. to give them the most accurate reading of miles/kWh etc. All of this can be done manually at this point from the available data. Somewhere, there's also got to be the ambient temperature outside...and other useful information.

Then, the info could be recorded, emailed, exported to a spreadsheet, etc. for an ongoing record.

Also, splitting out screens so that the first screen is the basic information now at the top of...

VIN, SOC, GIDs
%GID/%SOC
Mileage
Charges (any way to tell how many are 80% vs 100%?)

Save the detailed battery readout for the second page...better yet, make it a menu choice.

Obviously, "thinking" about changes is much simpler than actually making them happen! ;-) I'm pleased to have purchased the Pro version and look forwad to seeing its progress as an App. We support what you are doing!
