Howdy all,

Finally decided to join the forums from a lurker as I had something of value that I could input to the conversation.

I have been messing around with the PHEV remote app, so far have managed to reverse engineer it to get some of the features working from my Samsung Gear S2 smart watch! (already got remote charge status and remote cooling/heating without timer working, depending on licensing etc of the app I may release this to the app store soonish)

It looks like there are a ton of hidden commands and options within the app itself that I am working on decompiling and testing at the moment, it also appears that there may be quite alot that can be controlled through the wifi bus that is not documented within the app itself.

My main question is, what functions would the people who own PHEV's actually want on an unofficial app? so far I have come up with the following;

1) Read MMCS information on economy, driving history etc
2) Fine tune controls for auto heating/cooling, temp set, specified times
3) Profiles (preset settings applied when selecting a profile)

Any other awesome ideas people can think of?


EDIT: just want to make it clear that I have no intention of monetizing an unofficial app, I am a massive fan of Open source and do this as a hobby only.

Nice to know someone is reversing that :)
Count me in for a beta-tester!

I just would love to see the range value (km and %) while on charge.

Good luck and keep us posted on the project.

Great idea, this should be fairly trivial to guestimate based on charge state or even better pull from the MMCS itself :) thanks for the suggestion.

I am working on android and tizen (gear s2 SmartWatch) apps for now, hopefully have something to share around in the coming month or two.

How about switching the seat and steering wheel heaters on when conditioning.

Sounds good. Being able to set multiple heating times in a day of less clunky blocks of time would be great - life doesn't always fit into 10 min slots!
Cheers

In my PHEV, the seat haters are manual switch controlled, so not much chance of these being controlled from an app.

Anything that interfaces with the MMCS is fair game, next few weeks I will be trying to get a firmware copy of the MMCS and break it apart to see exactly what is available for control by Wifi CAN -> MMCS -> ECU route.

Saying that it is obvious that there is alot more control provided by the MMCS then what is documented through the wifi app and/or the MMCS settings themselves so I am hoping to open up some new functionality. would be great to have stuff like this, windows, sunroof etc automated but as gwtape mentioned if its a manual switch and not controlled by the ECU at all there is no chance to interface with it at all (unless we step into some hardware hacking). . . . . . .

I will try and grab some of the hidden features of the current official wifi app itself up here over the coming week :)

I would love to be able to input my own POI list to MMCS and not just the EV Charging Points which seem to be never where I am.

Can I second that?

Nice to have a preheated car when i finish work, as well as the mornings.

Biggest disappointment with the app. :(
