What can leaf spy do in terms of additional settings changes on a 2022 Leaf?

I recently got a 2022 SV plus and have seen a lot of people post about Leaf Spy. I don’t know if J really need the extra data monitoring and stuff, but I saw a few posts referencing additional
settings leafspy can access thst aren’t available normally though the standard system.

On a 2022 leaf what are some useful settings that can be adjusted or am I mistaken that leaf spy can do this?

One thing I’d like is to just totally disable FM and AM radio. I’ve messed with the settings and still every once in a while the radio will start blasting if I disconnect my phone or if I forgot to turn off the audio system before turning the car off.

I’m also curious as to what the cheapest setup to get leafspy working would be. I was looking here https://www.electricvehiclewiki.com/wiki/leaf-spy-pro/ but I’m not sure exactly what equipment is 100% necessary for it to function. Is it ONLY the OBD2 Bluetooth scanner and the app that is required?

My 2019 radio does the same thing, comes on at odd times related to charging a phone. (or not).... I have not found any way with LeafSpy to change that but I am no expert. LeafSpy can change the way the doors lock and unlock but we have gone back to factory settings for that anyway. LeafSpy has been most useful for geeking out on energy use so unless you plan to do that.....

Leafspy can also change the timing of when lights turn off after you turn the car off.

It's interesting that Nissan locked that out, but I imagine their lawyers are well aware of the utility uses of LeafSpy :shock:

Aww man. I just bought LSP to try to do exactly that on my 2022. Ugh.
