So, as I said before. Data is grouped in segments (trips) that the users starts and ends whenever wanted.

Stats for each trip are automatically recorded and kept in your mobile. You can watch them later by accessing the Trip List from the app.

Here's an example of how it looks:

Beside the stats it's possible to log the whole trip into a file (CSV format). Data will be record into the log file by a specified time interval (minimum 1 sec).

Image

Finally the "dog" with also watch for the battery conditions of the PHEV, meaning that for every change of [Total Capacity] or whenever [Current Charge] > [Total Capacity] a log is recorded with the complete state of the battery.

All this is accessible through the Battery Condition List:

At any time you can export the full entry to a text file, which looks like this:

And that's it for today.

Oh... And I'm planing to release the app next Thursday ;)

In addition to my iPhone and iPad, I have a cheap Android tablet, and an android phone (emergency spare) so (when it's available) how do we get this app?

Thanks in advance. It sounds good.
(It's a shame it will not be available for iOS, but I fully understand. Maybe someone else with the knowledge could do that at some point in the future.....)

Cheers.

Well, as promised here it this... First version of PHEV Watchdog to be released 8-)

You'll need to Android 4.0.3 (minimum) to run this "dog".

And a compatible OBD adapter (bluetooth only).

The following have been reported to work properly:

OBDLink LX (available at amazon)
Konnwei kW902 (chinese clone, available at amazon, gearbest, etc).

One cheap chinese generic OBD dongle has been reported to work also.

So others may work or not... You'll have to try, or purchase one of the above.

The app is free , no hidden or limited features.

There is a nag screen, though... That will come up every time you start the app.

That's the way I'm using to convince you to make a small contribution to further development of this app.

So if you find it useful, press the paypal button and donate whatever you want.

Contributors above 5€ will have priority support and the nag screen removed (let me know what's your VIN number).

And that's it!

Download here and install!

Just noticed there is a nasty bug in the battery list condition auto logging feature.

I'll be disabling that feature (everything else is working) until I'll fix the problem.

Apologies for that.

Here's the new link for the app (still v0.7)

For those who installed yesterday's version, please uninstall and reinstall the new one above.

Just tried your app

Good job "GreyBigFoot"

Question: In one section I have seen the 200v and 100v charging ... it is looking that your app is capable to read how many time the battery have been charged ... apparently my PHEV have been charged 900 times (that sound a bit too much), for a total of 81 days spend on charging :ugeek:

Still .. these numbers sounds a bit too high for my knowledge of my PHEV

Hello elm70.

Well, I should say there's no reason to not believe those readings.

I've watched mine, and they seem to be strictly correct.

Those numbers are directly read from the Charger Management Unit without any further calculations.

The only issue you may have with those values is that sometimes the CAN Bus won't respond for the request (I suspect taht the Charger Management Unit has a lower priority in the BUS) so you'll have those readings zeroed.

Nice to hear the app works for you!
