LEAFStat displays valuable information from the 2011-2014 Nissan LEAF all electric vehicle which is not displayed on the
dashboard. Information is accessed via the OBDII port and a OBDII to Wifi adapter (required, purchased separately).
- Current battery charge measured in the cars native measure. Termed GIDs, each GID represents roughly 80wh of capacity. Can be used to determine how much range is left.
- kWh capacity remaining.
- State of Charge %. This is not the same % displayed on 2013-2014 vehicles dash board. It represents true SOC not accounting for the buffer used at 100% and 0%.
- Battery capacity. Indicates how much of original intended battery capacity remains. This reported value can vary several % based on recent use and charge characteristics but can give an indicate of battery degradation.
- Battery state of health. Believed to represent a measure of internal battery resistance that develops over time, indicating how healthy the battery is.
- Average battery temperature. The LEAF includes 3 or 4 battery temperature probes. This value is the average of the probes. High battery temperature is the primary cause of battery degradation.
- Tire pressure. Once rolling, the LEAF reports tire pressure down to a 1/4 of a PSI. Vital to know if you have a slow leak or under pressured tires.
Requires an OBDII WiFi adapter and works only with the Nissan LEAF.
LEAFStat is designed to work with any OBDII-WiFi device which implements ELM327 protocol and uses IP address 192.168.0.10.
LEAFStat has been tested using the following devices. These are sample listings from Amazon and are not an endorsement of the suppliers:
- Connect the OBDII-WiFi adapter to the OBDII port on the Nissan LEAF. The OBDII port is to the left of the steering wheel under the dashboard. Note: Unless the adapter has a switch, it will consume a little power from the 12v battery even when the vehicle is turned off.
- Go to Settings
- Select Wi-Fi
- Select the adapter's WiFi network, usually WiFi_OBDii
- Touch the blue 'i' to configure the network connection
- Choose Static
- Set IP address to 192.168.0.123 (or other unique IP address 192.168.0.xxx other than 192.168.0.10)
- Subnet Mark: 255.255.255.0
- Leave Router and DNS blank. The router field must be blank to allow cellular data which connected to the OBDii WiFi adapter.
