Thanks for the correction: yes, it is an iCAR3, my bad.Turbo3 wrote:Does this mean they have fixed the bug in the iCAR3 (not iCAM3) where you need to unplug it and plug again after it goes into sleep mode?SalisburySam wrote:Let me thank mjblazin, EV4EVer, hieronymous, and LEAFMuranoDriver for their suggestions to help me pick out an OBDII WiFi reader. I chose an iCAM3; it is the current model of one of the recommendations, and I was surprised how small the device is. I downloaded LEAFSpyPro, it installed on my iPhone6 without problem, and connected quickly to the OBDII device. Now I see what all the wonder is about, and I add my $20 and praise to Turbo3 for this amazing bit of insight into my LEAF. Not sure what it all tells me yet, but this and related MNL threads certainly mean a lot more to me now than before. Thanks again all.
I can't directly speak to a fix, but I've left the device in place since installing it, and it connects quickly and with no interaction on my part. I've driven my LEAF about 8 times since I've had the device and LeafSpy Pro, and have had to do nothing to connect other than ensuring my phone's WiFi is turned on. Works on both iPhone6 and iPad3, the only devices I've tested to date.
Lastly, the iCAR3 does indeed appear to go into sleep mode correctly. I've come back to the car about half an hour after shutdown, tried to connect with the iPhone6, and there is no connection. After starting the car, the connection self-establishes quickly. So far, all appears well.
