Been following this forum since June, picked up my 2018 SV Leaf in mid-August.
The first time I backed up with my Leaf and heard that "VSP noise" I went WTF was that?
I get it for big trucks that can't see behind them, but this is a small car, and I see fine through the back window, the mirrors and the backup camera helps too. Add in the motion detection sensors and you'd have to want to hit something on purpose behind you. If you're backing up, and someone is standing behind the car and not moving, honk the (high quality sounding) horn.
Other PHEV cars (like the Prius) do not have this beeper, why should this car?
So I installed the Leaf Spy Pro app on my mobile, and picked up a ELM327 OBDII BT adapter on Amazon.ca. Total expense was $35.81, or about half of a dinner out. Best money I ever spent.
I also "fixed" my door locks to engage when I get out of Park, and disengage when I go back into Park. My old 2013 Rav4 was able to configure the locks, why can't Nissan allow the same thing?
As previously mentioned in this forum, it did take a few attempts to make the changes, but it did work eventually. Can the UI be improved? Possibly, but for a techie like me, I was able to navigate the app to get what I needed. Even If the app and OBDII adapter is never used again, it was still money well spent. My $0.02 (CND)

Get the LeafSpy - fix things that Nissan couldn't, or won't.
