Using the State of Charge Gauge

Sun Mar 24, 2019 8:33 pm

My GOM is unpredictable and so I plan to use the State-of-Charge gauge as the visible reference for the Batt..

I wonder if the gauge is "linear"; that is, if the 18 lines represent equal share of the battery charge ? That is , if each line represent 5.5% of charge?

That would mean that the last 3 lines (red) indicate` 17% of charge.

Top segment is 15%, after that they are all 5%.

You're better off just using the direct % SoC reading from the car, under the EV screen. No counting, no guessing. This is what I use and I keep this screen up all the time when I drive.
