Re: Soul Spy?

As I said, I don't know the number that Kia thinks my battery is. Do we think it's something like 100 minus the max deteriotation? In Soul EV Spy app it is now calculated as min(100.0, (totcap * (1-maxdet/100.0) / nomcap * 100.0)), where totcap = 30.5 kWh, and nomcap = 27 kWh. I don't mind helping,...

Re: Soul Spy?

Also the SoulsSpy shown SOH 81% but when Kia tested it was only 42%. During the months february to July, the released versions of Soul EV Spy displayed an erroneously high SOH for cars having a low value for min deterioration. As mentioned previously in this thread, the SOH calculation has been fix...

Re: Soul Spy?

As far as I know I've got a Konnwei OBDII dongle. Of course, with all the fake stuff out there you are never really sure, I guess. Unfortunately Soul Spy stops working sometimes. It is not responsive and I need to force quit the app and restart. Other times the dongle is not responsive. Soul Spy sa...

Re: Soul Spy?

Would you buy the Soul EV Spy android app, if it was priced at $15 at google play store? Is it worth it? Why or why not? What is the value of the app, if not $15? What are the currently existing need-to-have features of the app? What features are wanted, but missing from the app currently? What are ...

Re: Soul Spy?

I tried out the new updated program yesterday, and sure enough my SOH went from 107% to 100%. Does it still go up to 110% with a new battery? The SOH display is now limited to displaying max 100 %, so that value is displayed for a new battery. I suppose this behaviour is like what an official Kia r...

Re: Soul Spy?

SOH calculation algorithm for the Kia Soul EV 2015 and 2016 has today been modified back, so it is now almost the same algorithm as was used by the app until february. The app has displayed erroneously high SOH values since february, especially for cars having one or more bad cells! From february un...

Re: Soul Spy?

Have a look, it works great with the Soul 2016. Well, the files you emailed me (thanks again!) has some weird-looking data, so I will not recommend the Obdlink MX dongle, until the dongle can be disregarded as the root cause for the malfunction. The only dongle supported by the SoulEVSpy app is the...

Re: Soul Spy?

For the record I recently picked up this one and it seems to work fine with SoulSpy: Panlong OBD2 OBDII Bluetooth Scanner Car Diagnostic Code Reader for Android The panlong has a very small buffer and/or low bluetooth throughput, and it fails to read the entire response to some commands. There are ...

Re: Soul Spy?

Searching on Amazon.ca it seems some Konnwei KW902s have another name in front of them, e.g. KKmoon KONNWEI KW902 - would you advise steering clear of them? I don't know enough to give advice on whether a KW902 from an amazon store will work or not. What I can say, is that the Soul EV Spy app is de...

Re: Soul Spy?

The dongles all claim to be ELM 327, and none of them are (including the KW902). Some works with the soul ev spy app, some doesn't. The only dongle supported is the KW902.
The bad KW902 I got from a chinese website was replaced when I told them. I didn't even have to return the defective one.
