Soul Spy only supports Bluetooth.

I purchased a certified 2017 Soul EV with 7,700 miles in January. In Colorado, winter range was about 93 and charging last night I had 117 miles, which exceeded my expectations. I am relatively new to the Soul EV so I have no comparisons but I seem to always gain mileage on the range as I drive. On my last full charge (117 expected range), after driving about 70 miles my remaining calculated range amounted to about 122 total range. Do others have this same experience?

One possible explanation is that the GOM estimate is based on previously achieved mileages, which will be low if they are generated in colder weather. Now that it is warmer, they will be improved, but the GOM algorithm may still retain some bias from the winter memory, which will slowly be overcome as the older values fall out of the stack. Come the winter, you should see a slow reduction of GOM value, as the summer values drop out, and you may actually experience worse performance than the GOM predicts. The effect would be more marked if the change of seasonal temperature is more abrupt.

A possible reason that I haven't noticed it happening is that the seasonal temperature variation here is MUCH less than in Colorado. Well, it's a theory :D

They should have reset your BMS after they installed the new battery but either didn't because following instructions is hard :roll: , or because they ran out of time - as was the excuse from my dealer when they changed my battery out. It'll update once you've discharged and charged the battery in a certain way (100% to >18% back to 100% without interruption) and it recalibrates with the new data provided from the battery.
