I've replied, copying here for completeness:

Hi meiniac,

I'm very sorry I haven't updated the Leaf parts of the OVMS manual. 2016 
Leafs are supported with some configuration. It looks like you might 
have a 30kWh battery which, in theory, is also supported but you're 
probably the first to test it. I have a 2016 24kWh Leaf and everything 
works for me (almost).

Set the configuration option xnl.modelyear to 2016 to enable 2016 
compatible remote commands:

config set xnl modelyear 2016

However you also have to unplug the TCU if fitted or it will override 
the OVMS module's messages. In previous model year cars, this hasn't 
caused any problems but in the 2016 model year they routed the handsfree 
microphone through the TCU and the microphone stops working when you 
unplug the TCU. You assistance in this matter is appreciated as I 
haven't had time to try to override the TCU using the OVMS.

Set the configuration option xnl.maxGids to the appropriate maximum gids 
for a 30kWh Leaf:

config set xnl maxGids 356

I have observed the SOC flapping with a v2 module in a 30kWh Leaf but we 
never got to the bottom of the problem, we found that the module was 
sending the SOC correctly and the server was not always sending the 
correct value to the app. It's possible the server doesn't like SOC 
above 100% and it will go away when you configure the maxGids correctly?

The xt_set_error_handler_callback error is because your esp_idf is out 
of date. You need the latest from
