Just a small update on OVMS V3.
I can now lock and unlock doors from a car that is properly off. For real this time! I can open the trunk, and I have implemented a feature where you can use the third "trunk" button on the key fob to open the charge port. (Do anyone know what that button does anyway?)
M-can is being reverse engineered, but what we have found there is currently not very useful.
The search for remote climate control is ongoing. I hope to get some help in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=7&t=877
The core OVMS team is busy adding more and more features. I have a hard time keeping track with what they do.
Multiple can-buses are looking stable now. There are some issues with GPS and SD-card I believe, but WiFi and GSM/3G seems to work ok. I haven't properly tested the roaming from WiFi to GSM and back to WiFi myself, but it seems to be mostly in place and should in work, in theory.
SMS support is still missing. Same goes for Bluetooth and MQTT.
Communication with the OVMS V2 server is finished, so except from the missing GSM and GPS, the Kia Soul functionality are now on par and better than the V2.
Scripting works just great too. From there you can do all the aforementioned stuff, like lock/unlock doors, but also turn on and off lights, and even access commands not directly supported, by sending commands directly to a spesific ECU. Maybe soon we could have a script like the Tesla Easter Egg? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=31yr1Dtq2Qo
But, maybe best of all: No special hardware, nor skills are needed to set up and update the firmware on V3
Now, I really look forward to getting a case for the OVMS-board...
