Just to keep everyone in the loop, I¹ve given Nigel, Nikki, and Robert, free
OVMS hardware to kick start the Leaf development.

I¹m happy to do the same for other people if they can convince me they¹ll
contribute to the development in some way. Send me an email and convince me

Exciting times!

Hi all,
 I'm currently waiting for some the hardware.(ovms, odb cable, gps antenna)
It should arrive in the next few days to add to the pic 3 programmer,
various obd cables, serial adapter I have here, a mobile SIM & I've also
setup some fresh VMs for development & have partially setup git. More of
this last item & mplabx/compiler to to be setup soon.

 I am working this week but will try and squeeze in a little time to at
least get the HW programmed with the current firmware & see what we have.
