Prior to the iOS version supporting any Bluetooth LE dongles, IIRC, it only worked w/certain wi-fi OBD2 dongles.
The Android version supported Bluetooth (not Bluetooth LE) for ages then later added Bluetooth LE support.
Turbo3 at an EVent ages ago himself showed me an iPod Touch (6th gen, I think) working w/a Bluetooth LE dongle. At the time, it might've been work in progress or just completed. (Turbo3 lives a few miles from me and it was likely at an EVent at Nisan's Sunnyvale research office years ago.)
BTW, I have pinged him at least once to remove the verbiage of "The only one currently recommended is the Bluetooth Konnwei KW902 which still supports all the needed ELM commands to communicate with the Leaf..." from https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... e&hl=en_US
given his own dis-recommendation.
Unfortunately, https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... 1&hl=en_US
has the same problem while https://play.google.com/store/apps/deta ... o&hl=en_US
Due to a recent cost reduction (and feature reduction) many of the cheap ELM327 OBDII Bluetooth adapters from Asia no longer work with the Leaf and report themselves to be version 2.1. The previously recommended Bluetooth Konnwei KW902 OBDII adapter is also no longer recommended as a batch of defective ones have made their way into the market. These will basically short out your Leaf's CAN bus (or any CAN bus they are plugged into). But when removed do not seem to cause any lasting damage.
With the release of version 0.39.97 LeafSpy Pro now supports two Bluetooth 4.x LE approved adapters. The recommended one is the LELink available from Amazon. Bluetooth 4.x LE has the advantage of not needing to be paired and lower power from both the Android device and the Leaf. The LELink is highly recommended and also works with the iOS version of LeafSpy Pro.
