I checked several of the OBD dongles on Amazon and found that all of them do not support this protocol. I just ordered an adapter that supports the protocol, and a splitter cable for OBD connectors. When I get and test the adapter I will report the results.
What was the result? Have a link to what you ordered?

I wouldn't bother looking for such protocols. Just use ones that are reported to work recently and/or recommended by Turbo3, author of Leaf Spy.

The two I ordered in July 2015 based upon experiences/guidance here and on the wiki worked just fine.

'19 Bolt Premier
'13 Leaf SV w/premium (owned)
'13 Leaf SV w/QC + LED & premium (lease over)

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

Im wondering if people are having trouble with the Bluetooth obd connector, or the software connection on the phone?

I bought both an android AND Apple version, and they both work... It just takes a little time to get the Leafspy settings correctly....

I remember that the first few times I connected the Bluetooth adapter, leafspy did not recognize the data. I needed to go into the "settings menu" (the little gear picture) and set the correct OBDII choice and then do the password of 1234..

I think we should have a step by step procedure available for new users, because I cannot imagine that so many connecters reportedly do not work on Leafspy.

My reasoning is... All OBDII connectors must be reading the car's OBD plug correctly... (that is a standard interfaces). ALL cell phones should be able to connect to the Bluetooth signal.... (Have you ever heard of a phone that cannot connect to Bluetooth speakers or headphones??) I really think the problem is to get leafspy settings to the proper Bluetooth settings..
