Leaf spy app has quit working on my phone...it was doing just fine for three months and has just quit receiving readings...it just shows the last reading from a couple days ago. What's wrong?

I used to have connection problems frequently with 1 of my dongles and had to frequently unplug and replug it. The one I'm using now seems better. I still have no issues. I used Leaf Spy earlier tonight.

Please don't PM me with Leaf questions. Just post in the topic that seems most appropriate.

Yeah, if Bluetooth on your phone is working, that seems almost certain to be a dongle problem.

If I were you, I would go buy a used Android. Check "authorized resellers" they generally have them for as little as $50. This gives you the advantage of having a separate phone to monitor and it does not need service to work. I am using a Samsung Galaxy 4 as my LEAF Spy Device. So you can go pretty old and still make it work.
