And yet you decided to install an app released by this stranger, an app which has unlimited access to send any information it collects, to anywhere on the internet
Sure, I love living on the edge
I do get your point, but my point is that I don't like to share some private information willingly. I know there are apps that will steal them (I don't think you do) but that is different than handing it over without questions.
So this includes your car VIN (you know, the identifier clearly visible from outside in the front window by strangers passing by)
I know, but my address is also posted on my house. That does not mean I intend to share it with everybody on the internet. There are even people who don't want to share their face on the internet even though that is (usually) visible in public as well.
Question: Do you turn the car completely on (hold brake pedal, then press the car on button), before connecting the app to the dongle? The internal systems in the car are unable to communicate with the dongle, when off. There is always power for the dongle, so dongle LEDs lighting up is not an indication of the car being on.
Usually I do it like this: get in, start the car, put on my seat-belt, insert the dongle in the OBD-connector, start Soul Spy. This is the order I did things this morning. Of course, when I get out to quick charge I don't remove the dongle. i have to power cycle the car though. First power off to open the loading bay, then start to use the radio, and a second power cycle to get the car in driving mode again after the quick charge is stopped.
This algorithm is totally designed, based on the correlation between workshop printouts of SOH and my logged deterioration values from the same occations. The P3 and P4 constants may be a bit artificial, but there is a perfect match for all workshop printouts.
Right, this calculation gives me a bit more SOH. Then it would be about 49% instead of 46% which Soul Spy says. I think it's still way better than the 83% from the "old" calculations.

I attached the debugger to the phone and found a deadlock error in the lock-handling. I have made a new release with a fix for that, which should be available on google play store within some hours.
Thanks, I got it on sunday afternoon. Unfortunately in my case it hasn't helped. It still crashed 2 times. Fortunately I now know that there's an easy way to see this without taking quick notes while driving. In the event that Soul Spy is restarted I get a new .csv file. The same seems to go for the BT connection. When that fails (and is restarted) a new logfile is created.

Perhaps 206 is the value returned, when the car has no battery heaters fitted.
Can you confirm that your car does not have battery heaters?
This begs the question how I can tell I have those or not? Being situated in The Netherlands with an almost identical climate of Denmark I would expect to have the same setup as you do.
I found the readout in Torque. There it's called "000_Battery Heater 1 Temperature" (and 2) . It's just not on my dashboards. Also the value is shown as -50C in Torque. If I'm not mistaken that's because Torque sees it as a signed integer and Soul Spy as unsigned integer.
I've sent you an email with edited logfiles. I hope you can still use them.
Edit: my Soul is from August 2014 (when it arrived in The Netherlands), I think that's model year 2015.
