Is there a particular adapter that works best with Leaf Spy and iPhones? Which adapter do you primarily use?
I use the LYL brand WiFi adapter with a Y-Cable.

To install this Y-cable you remove the under dash cover then pop out the current OBDII socket and connect it to the black plug on the Y-cable. Then you plug the closest white socket back into the original OBDII socket opening so the service people can still access the OBDII. The other white socket you route out near the hood release lever and plug the OBDII adapter into it. I use a twist tie to hold the LYL up out of the way.

The Y-Cable is $8 on amazon with free shipping. I actually use a cable with three ends since I also have a WattsLeft plugged in as well. It makes for a nice clean look with nothing to hit and accidentally unplug with your leg. The white connectors are exactly the same as the factory connector so the mounting clips are the same and it just snaps back in.

You can also use this short adapter plugged directly into the under dash OBDII socket.

Just uploaded the next test release to iTunes for review. Should be available sometime tomorrow (July 21).

Version 1.0.16 (Test Release)

- Added Climate Control status to the bottom of screen 3

- For 2013 and newer Leafs the motor power displayed on screen 4 will switch to displaying battery power during regeneration. This is to address the change Nissan made to not report regen power with motor power in the parameter LeafSpy reads. The label "motr" will switch to "batt" when power is being calculated based on battery data. The label will also change to "batt" during charging.

- The elevation and speed log file now includes epoch time as the third entry.

- Rearrange battery temperatures on screen 4 and labeled ambient temperature as outside temperature.

- Fixed bug that prevented non-standard VINs like Japan's registration number from being displayed.

- Removed the Multi-Frame delay option. The OBDII adapter is now allowed to operate at the maximum transfer speed.

- Display Ambient temperature in Centigrade.

- Corrected mislabeling of screen 1 help overlay that had Zoom In/Zoom Out areas reversed.

- If the Leaf has never been Quick Charged the charge log name will be in the format Lxxxx instead of Q65535_Lxxxx where xxxx is the number of L1/L2 charge/plugs.

- Added date to most screens to help in later identifying screenshots.

- Fixed bug that caused state information not to be saved if the option to run in the background was enabled (i.e. always keep GPS active).

- For Trip and Charge efficiencies on screen 4 support Wh/mile and Wh/km formats.

- Updated help file.

- Compiled using B4i 2.0

I didn't receive an invite for .17 and the invite for .18 gives me 'The requested app is not available or doesn't not exist. Was there a problem with .17 and .18? Or are my testflight skills lacking?

Version 1.0.17 never made it out as a couple of bugs were reported after it was uploaded to iTunes and I released 1.0.18 which killed 1.0.17 since it had not made it through the iTunes review process.

I added one more feature to allow the outside temperature to be calibrated with an adjustment of -5 to +5 degrees to the Dash display. When I released 1.0.19 to iTunes it automatically kills 1.0.18. I wish iTunes would keep the previous release active until they finished the review of a new release but they don't. So there is always a gap of a day or more between release updates when Testflight will not let you install any version.

Not sure how much reviewing they do on Sunday so it may not be until Monday when you get the invite for 1.0.19.

I recommend installing as soon as you get the invite as I think 1.0.19 will be the final test release before I go for a full release. When that happens if you have not upgraded to 1.0.19 you will be locked out for one or more weeks while iTunes does a full review. The review does not take that long but the minimum wait time for a full review is one week with each reject/review cycle taking an additional week.

When testing 1.0.19 outside temperature adjustment feature this should only be done when the Leaf has been sitting at the same temperature for several hours to be sure the dash outside temperature display has stabilized. Best to do the adjustment in the early morning . This is because the LeafSpy reading responses very quickly to temperature changes whereas the dash display takes a long time to respond.

For my 2011 Leaf I need to do a +1 adjustment to bring it into sync with the dash.

Be sure to report any problems with 1.0.19 or earlier versions as I would like it to be as clean as possible given the long time it would take be to fix a bug if it made it to the full release.

I can confirm that .19 displays my VIN. (much appreciated on the quick turn for something that affected a very small number of users)

That would be either a bug in the iOS9 beta or B4i.

If in the iOS beta then be sure to run the latest version of the beta to see if it has been fixed.

If it is in B4i then we will need to wait for the problem to be identified and an updated compiler to be made available.

Please post the iOS Beta version you are having trouble with.

Also what version of LeafSpy are you running?
