Thanks I will look at ordering one, do we know if anyone made a list of working OBD adapters? if not perhaps I could put one together? figure it would help new owners in terms of being able to find the information they seek? Thoughts on me doing this?

Re: Leaf Spy and Leaf Spy Pro

That would be great but things change and products are updated or dropped occasionally. Somewhere there is a thread about which chipsets internal to the OBDII adapter work with LeafSpy as there were some that didn't work well.

Apparently there is one chip that does most of the communication and then a bunch of support components in the unit.

Re: Leaf Spy and Leaf Spy Pro

What might be helpful would be a topic called something like "Currently Compatible OBDII Dongles". It could then be updated, with all other talk about them in the other topics.

Ill make this topic shortly, I just hope people would be willing to post there adapters name/model/type so I can compile the list, I have the one recommended by LeafSpy as well, but I know someone who isn't as familiar with this stuff like some of us might be looking at it like where do I go, so I figure if I can compile a list it might be useful to someone. As for things changing, that is tech in general, but if I can at least make a list that is helpful even if in a small miniscule way then the list has been worth it.


EDIT: Added the list, so if anyone has any other adapters they have used in the past feel free to post them up so I can add them into the list, thanks! Hope this helps our community!

Re: Leaf Spy and Leaf Spy Pro

Done. The nice thing about mine is that it's worked well for years, and they don't seem inclined to change it. It's also inexpensive.

On my IOS version its all working well except tire pressure readings (which I don't mind) and dropbox saving feature which would be nice to get fixed. All else is fine quite frankly.
One would think that after 1-2 years of users purchasing this out of date program that updating the iOS LS to the Android code base to resolve these issues would be possible and the time would be paid for. This would help to generate more sales. I hesitated for months paying for a 3 year-old program that is missing features, but I really was annoyed with carrying an Android tablet to the Leaf to read stats.

Turbo3, please update the iOS version. At least every year or two. Thanks!

Re: Leaf Spy and Leaf Spy Pro

Here is the best list/explanation of ELM327 compliant OBD-II adapters I've ever seen:
