I have about 5500km and it is from 04/2015.

If it's helpful, I can hook it up and check any values if one of you felt like providing some instructions (I have a few Android devices that I can pair with the ELM327, and I could also hook it up to a Windows 8 laptop).
If you want to test that your ELM327 is working. Install TorquePro from the CD. Follow the instructions to connect via Bluetooth. Open TorquePro and check the Adapter Status. I would wait for SoulSpy to be released before doing any active testing. (hopefully soon)

While waiting for my OVMS, I've created some preliminary images for the Kia in the iOS-APP. But since I'm a total newbie to GIT, I'm struggling with understanding how to get the images into the master-repository. I did fork the master iOS-repository and checked in my changes, and then I sent a pull request, so I hope that is the correct procedure :)

I've added all five colors to the status screen, but on the car- and location-pages I did only find an image for the blue white Soul.

Hopefully these images can be used directly in the Android-version too.

Hi goev,
I am no expert with git but I can see your pull request so I assume it worked.
For some reason this link won't show as an image.
https://github.com/goev/Open-Vehicle-iO ... rwhite.png
Most people on this thread seem to be using ELM327 dongles to connect via Bluetooth.
The software being written is an Android Soul Spy. Hopefully this too will go up on github.
I don't think anyone here has OVMS. (except Alex /Alkl ).
I am really happy that both projects are proceeding, and that we are currently sharing open source data.
And I am happy to support both if I can.

Anyway as an almost total newbie to git here are some notes I made

Code: Select all

git remote -v

Adding new stuff to local
git add
git commit
git push origin master

Syncing from server
git fetch upstream
git checkout master
git merge upstream/master

move stuff to my server fork
git push

Getting out of a mess
git reset --hard  xxxxxx
git push origin +master

Thanks for the GIT-tips, JejuSoul :)

The Image link you said didn't work, it works for me, but it tok a few seconds to load, though, for some reason.

I think it is cool that you are making an Android app! I have an ELM327 WiFi dongle, and could have been interested in an iPhone app, since that's my preferred platform, but the need for being close to the car makes such solutions not as useful to me as OVMS. But it would be a nice addition to OVMS to check battery health and stuff like that :)

But this gave me an idea, which might not be a new one to you, but here it is:

If your app could send and answer SMS, continuously update a server or send a Twitter-messages when the charging stops, a cheap Android phone with your software could replace the rather complex OVMS-setup :D

Yes, Tyrel and I are working on an Android app, sources are available on Github. Feel free if you wanna join!

Good news. I would like to help, but am a complete beginner in Android programming. And ELM327.
I will just watch and learn for now.

The Question is how stable is the ELM327/App solution working how much energy is it consuming?
I read that the OVMS hardware needs about 2,7Ah/day. The Soul 12V battery has 45Ah i think, but it is also charged during loading the EV battery.

Yesterday i installed the OVMS hardware in the glover box: I removed the air filter in the glover box and the cover around the OBD connector (maybe not necessary). Then it's possible to pull the OBD-cable behind the multimedia display to the glove box :-)

I'm also new to OMVS but so far i think it's a reliable solution.
