interesting, my adapter was an iCAR3 bluetooth 4.0 version, and it works when first plugged in. Then it goes to sleep or whatever, and starting the car up again won't make it show. Need to unplug and replug. SalisburySam, you leave it plugged in, or unplug each time? Does it autosleep after about half an hour with no connection? Just restarting your car makes it come back to life? What model year Leaf?
Which seller for the ICAR3- I wonder if there are lots of unofficial clones- the Chinese manufacturers seem to copy each other a lot and sometimes they clone not quite exactly, for good or for bad. My iCAR3 bluetooth 4.0 came from Vgatemall seller on amazon which based on the name I would assume is as official as there would be.
I'd really like to find a module that just works.
My iCAR3 continues to function well, have had no failures or glitches whatsoever. It is WiFi.
