Re: OVMS for the Kia Soul EV (to remotely access it without UVO)

The main developers are planning a new release this weekend. I've been running on the new Kia Soul-part for a few days now and my 12V voltage-logger shows almost no drain! I am very pleased :D Also I've tried to minimize the need for waking up the car (and the sometimes the radio) momentarily to che...

Re: OVMS for the Kia Soul EV (to remotely access it without UVO)

Hi guys! Happy new year! I've just sent my latest Kia Soul EV-code to the master repository, so hopefully a new and improved version will be available to all soon! The main issue that has been fixed, hopefully, is the 12V battery drain that some have reported. A side effect of that is that the "...

Re: Remote HVAC operation

Unfortunately, no :(

It has been a few months now, so my memory is not clear, but IIRC the message containing the "plugged in"-status is sent so many times per seconds that it is impossible to make the car believe it is plugged in.

Re: OVMS for the Kia Soul EV (to remotely access it without UVO)

Yes, but there is a bug I haven't had time to fix that makes that function somewhat unstable.

Re: OVMS for the Kia Soul EV (to remotely access it without UVO)

Well, it also works on the Fiat 500e, so I guess it isn't strictly Kia-specific either ;) On a side note, I've ordered the new Kia Niro Electric and will hopefully get it at the end of this year. I hope that cable will work on the Niro too. I'm curious to see how much of the code that can be reused ...

Fasttech will get Kia-specific OBD II-cables in a couple of week.

Re: OVMS for the Kia Soul EV (to remotely access it without UVO)

I'm pretty sure Mark, the main buy behind OVMS, is ordering some OBD-II cables now for the Kia Soul which will be available from FastTech.

For my OVMS, I simply bought a OBD-II pigtail and a DB-9 connector and made my own.

Re: OVMS for the Kia Soul EV (to remotely access it without UVO)

Great news, Javi!

Please upgrade to firmware 3.1.005. It is much more useful than 3.1.004!

Can you verify that lock and unlock door works on your car? And can you test to see if you can open the charge port when holding the "hold-button" on the key fob?

Re: OVMS for the Kia Soul EV (to remotely access it without UVO)

I finally got mine yesterday :D Had some problems with the SD-card-reader and it took a while before I got the 3G-connection to work. I think both problems where due to bad connections and flimsy holders. Everything else was fairly ok to setup when following the user guide. I got connected via WiFi ...

Re: OVMS for the Kia Soul EV (to remotely access it without UVO)

Javi, I tried to send you a reply to your mailaddress, but I got the email in return for some reason. I haven't received my V3.1-module yet, so I'm afraid I can't help you much at the moment, but I can say that the WiFi-antenna is built in. The external antennas are for GPS and GSM/3G only. There ha...
