I've been having very good feedback from Soul EV 27kWh and 30kWh users so it seems the App works for these.

There's still some issues to fix (seems cells voltage map is not working and I need to map 110% SoH to 100% and just "hide" the buffer).

So there should be soon another release for these minor fixes.

I've opened this topic so I can inform about the developments of the App.

At this time v1.6 is available on the playstore as a totally free (ad-based version) and another premium version with extended features.

The App runs on Android (only) v4.1 and up and essentially reads data from the car through the OBD2 port and displays it on the Android screen much like on the car's dashboard but with much more detail and stats. It will keep track of every trip recorded and every battery condition changes (SoH and SoC).

For the App to work you'll then need then a OBD2 adapter. Not every OBD2 adapter will work with the App (specially the low cost Chinese clones). There's a list on the website with adapter's known to work, if you need some help to pick one I can recommend only one which is the OBDLink LX and the one I've been myself using for years now. It's one of the fastest and has all features.

For the list and to know more about OBD2 interface: https://evwatchdog.net

Here's some screenshots of the free version and data you can expect to see in the App.

Let me know if you have any questions and I would love to have more feedback from the Soul EV users.
Actual degradation chart on the website.

Ioniq's seem to hold their SoH very well.

The other two reading bellow 100% are actually from Kona 64's which seems to be experiencing some issues.

New release now available (v1.7)

- Fixed 110% SoH reporting for Soul EV (which should map to 100%)
- Fixed charts not resetting when starting/resuming a second trip
- Fixed cropped text bug for widget layout

Happy to announce release v1.8 (Free and Premium) is now available throught Google's playstore.

You can find the differences between both versions and download links in the following page: https://evwatchdog.net/app.php

And here's the list of complete changes.

+ Added support for MG ZS EV Asian model
+ Added support for Hyundai Ioniq 5
+ Added actual battery condition card
+ Added scoped file storage support for Android 10 and above
+ Improved the battery size recognition for Hyundai Kona/KIA eNiro
+ Improved consumed/regenerated counters (uses now effective loss/gain)
+ Fixed battery map for Ioniq 38kWh
+ Fixed battery map for MG ZV ES
+ Fixed consumption in trip details
+ Several other minor fixes and improvements

+ Added Aux Battery 12V chart

Just added a new feature on the website (for Premium users).
The Trip Mapper (that's the loupe icon on the navigation box on the right).
You'll need a TripLog... file produced by enabling the Data Logging option of the App (files are save under the Download\EVWatchdog\trips folder).
Just upload the file and see the magic!

Important: it should be a TripLog... file generated by the latest version (v1.8) of the App.

v1.9 now available!

+ Added support for Ioniq 5 RWD 58kWh.
+ Upgraded charts (Premium)
+ Added cells voltage and cells histogram charts (Premium)
+ Removed cells voltage map (Premium)
+ Several other fixes and improvements.

So the cells voltage map is now gone for the Premium App (and should be removed from the Free App on a future release) it was becoming unreadable and useless for the latest EV models with almost 2000 cells. I've then redone the charts and added a cells voltage bar chart and histogram which should be a better tool to check the status of the battery pack.
