Yes, the iOS version has the same Service functions as the Android version (read/clear DTCs).

If you are going to use only the battery pack from the salvaged Leaf you need to wire the EV-CAN that comes out of the BMS module to the CAR-CAN pins of an OBDII connector plus power and ground so you can use a standard OBDII WiFi adapter to link to the iOS version of LeafSpy Pro. You will also need to go to the Model Year selection and pick "BMS".

If you are leaving the Battery pack in the salvage Leaf and the salvage Leaf still powers up you don't need to do that. You still need a WiFi OBDII adapter not a Bluetooth adapter.

Awesome, thanks Turbo3! Look forward to trying it out!

To start with I will be trying to get the system to run normally in the Leaf, then I'll be moving the whole drive system into another vehicle. So generally I'll be communicating with it in the normal way, but its awesome that you've integrated some EV-CAN capability.

I don't know that it would be of interest to others, but it would be great if there was a screen available that could serve as a full dash replacement on a tablet ;)

Thanks again,
Rob

BTW, just ordered one of these adapters from Amazon:
http://www.amazon.com/ieGeek-C2-AE-Wire ... 00B3K2X4M/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Hopefully will do the trick ;) Will let everyone know.

There is at least one review on there from a guy with a Leaf successfully using LeafStat.

ieGeek wifi adapter from Amazon linked above worked just fine. Was able to read status, read DTCs, and clear DTCs with no issues. Great App, thanks!

Amazingly good price for a WiFi adapter at $16.99 with Amazon Prime delivery.
When did they get that cheap?
WiFi adapters used to be over $100 :?:

LeafSpy Pro Version 1.0.12 expired today. I dropped back to 1.0.10.

While using 1.0.12, I noticed high battery consumption due to background processing.
One day, my battery usage report showed 78% for LeafSpy.
Also, when the mode is 'offline', reconnecting to WiFi is problematic. I needed to leave
the app (sometimes killing it) and re-enter to get WiFi to connect.

iPhone 6+, iOS 8.3

Thanks,
Randy

I would expect battery usage to be high if you enabled background processing (by enabling Always keep GPS Active) so one option is have it plugged into the charger while in the Leaf.

An option I could add is to only allow running in the background when WiFi is connected to the Leaf. That would save power when you exit the Leaf but would not allow automatic re-connection when you got back to the Leaf. After re-connection to the Leaf WiFi you would need to restart Leaf Spy to wake it up.

To your other question about reconnecting:

If the WiFi is not connected to the Leaf OBDII WiFi adapter LeafSpy has no way to connect and just waits. Go to LeafSpy Settings and see what network is currently active. If it is not the OBDII WiFi that is why it is not connecting. It sometimes takes a while for iOS to reconnect to the Leaf WiFi when yo get back in the Leaf. If you have a strong home WiFi it may never automatically connect to the Leaf and you need to do it manually. LeafSpy has no ability to force a WiFi connection. Apple does not allow apps to do that.

Is the problem with version 1.0.11 or 1.0.12?

If you started to have trouble with the beta version 1.0.12 a couple of days ago it is most likely due to the test expiring on April 30.

You should be getting a message from Testflight that that version has expired.

Yes, version 1.0.12.

Last readings I took was on 4,27,15. Tried it on Thurs 5,1,15 and crashed. Crashing since. That seems like this fits the time period you referenced to it expiring. I did not get a text from test-flight about it expiring. I was getting emails about updates from test flight, but nothing about it expiring.

Going back to the emails, I opened the latest update (1.0.12) to possibly reinstall and it said it had expired.

Is the testing over and time to buy it on itunes?

Im hoping thats the issue - and not something with my phone. When I buy it from iTunes it should work again? iPhone 5s ios 8.1.2
