Re: Soul EV Spy Questions and Answers

Answering my own question!

If you have another app using bluetooth it seems to get confused, especially if the other app is auto-connect. In my case it was Torque and it was essentially blocking the Soul EV Spy connection. Once I Quit the other app (no, I was technically not running it but it connected anyway) all is well. Note you can tell if Torque is active because it has a 1 next to the app icon on your desktop. To turn it off simply open the app and go to the settings, bottom left and choose Quit.

I am leaving my last post up and this one in case anyone else runs into the same issue.

I think I was having issues with the same issue and came to the same solution. Glad to have my suspicion confirmed.

I have posted this elsewhere, but didn't realise this was the best place, so here it is, with a slight update:

I have just bought a 2 year old SoulEV 30 kWh with 31,000 miles. The GOM shows 114 miles, and it covers 85 speedo miles with 26% charge left. If the 26% is correct, that suggests the range is 100/74*85=114.87 miles. The long-term "economy" display shows 4.0miles/kWh, which suggests the battery capacity is 85/4*100/74=28.72 kWh i.e. the SOH is 95.7%.

I appreciate there's a number of assumptions above, so I used Torque Pro and SoulEV Pro to get some confirmation. However.

The values for Max Det and Min Det appear absurd. SoulEVSpy gives the same values, but reports SOH as indeterminate. The cell voltages are all 4.12V except three adjacent cells which are 4.10. That is after a charge to 100%.

Any insight gratefully received.
