  1. Leafspy reconnect problem

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    I have been using Leafspy happily and successfully for three years but on reconnecting on my new phone, Samsung Galaxy 7, everything works fine but the graph (I find useful/interesting) of speed and altitude. I have tried reconnecting to no avail, any help appreciated.
  2. ODB2 dongle Bluetooth V4.0?

    General Nissan EV Discussion
    I'm trying to get Leafspy working on an iPhone with my e-NV200. I don't want to use WiFi unless I really have to because that's what my dashcam uses and I don't want to keep switching SSIDs. Now, IOS requires Bluetooth V4.0 or it won't recognise the device so I bought one like this: ELM327...
  3. Local Leafspy experts DE72

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    I was given Leafspy for my 2016 Leaf 30Kw at Christmas and am keen to get going with it but am physically unable to get down under the steering wheel to install the ODBII dongle. I'm also a bit scared of breaking the cover on the steering column because it looks as if it has to be prised off...
  4. LeafSpy Errors and Intermittent Non-Starting

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Morning all. My 2011 L24 is acting a bit silly for the last day or two. Every so often she gives me an I-key error, and I can’t turn on the ignition. When the error appears, it's just after I turn off the car. Strangely though, if I leave her alone for an hour or so, the ignition turns on (the...
  5. Permanent 40 - 60 mV cell diff in LeafSpy

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Hello, I’m wondering about what LeafSpy shows me: one of the 96 cells is out of balance all the time, no matter how I charge or discharge the battery. It is not a weak cell because it does not charge faster than the other cells. Its voltage stays 40 - 60 mV below the average. In LeafSpy, this...
  6. Enable Tyre Pressure Readings in LeafSpy on 40kW

    Nissan Leaf40
    Has anyone managed to enable tyre pressure readings in Leaf Spy (iOS 11.4 on iPhone 8) on the 40kW? The main display says "New UK Leaf, enable 'Use Alternate method to read Tires' in Settings". But this option is disabled in settings. I have tried with two different OBDII units. Currently using...
  7. Hardware required for leafspy?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    I downloaded the LeafSpy app, which (having paid for it) tells me I need some specialised hardware to plug into the car. It's a bit hard to follow exactly what kind of a dongle is required, and I can't find the socket the app is telling me to plug. I've seen posts from several people on the...
  8. Trip Start has been Restored (and DTC vs. FFD)

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Whenever I start LeafSpy on my iPhone, I get a popup message box with a single OK button. It says: Trip Start has been Restored. Does anyone know what it means? Why am I getting this message at all? I have not changed any options in settings recently (except for the service screen, see below)...
  9. ODBII BT dongle to auto-connect reliable with LeafySpy?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    I've been using the following dongle (sorry for the poor quality image), it works fine with LeafSpy, however to make it connect to Bluetooth I need to disconnect then re-connect the dongle to the ODB port. It also sometimes drops off mid-communication. I would like to have it auto connect...
  10. First two weeks!

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    Hi fellow Leafers, I am still excited about my new Tekhna I got two weeks ago and have to say the car is just great. It's quiet, comfortable, pretty dynamic when needed, ecological and, frankly, simply cool! Totally disagree with complaints regarding Bose speakers. They needed tuning, true, but...
  11. Leafspy - where to start?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    OK so I finally got my bluetooth OBDII dongle and connected it to LeafSpy Lite on Android. I have no idea what anything means! The closest I can find to a manual is this: WIND-WORKS: Leaf Spy--an Essential Tool for Serious Nissan Leaf Drivers But I don't have most of the screens shown. I...
  12. First Turtle!

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    OMG! What a stressful, cold but thoroughly exciting journey, and at a turtle's pace! I set off from Warwick Serv with 51m on the GOM to discover the exit closed and the shortest route home to Kibworth now 52m. The sensible decision would have been to double back up the m40 to Warwick North but I...
  13. Leaf spy dongle

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    I'm looking to buy a 2nd hand leaf. I thought I would arm myself with Leaf spy to check out the heath of any prospective purchase. Unfortunately I can not find a dongle that Leaf spy will recognise as version 1.5. I tried this one that someone had recommended Mini ELM327 OBD2 V1.5 Car Bluetooth...
