Re: Turtle riding (How far has the turtle brought you ?)

Before the 12V was emptied, I always trusted the bars and had no problem to run down to 1 or 0 bars or maybe even turtle. I never run out of power. But then I had the situation described above with 2 bars and car stopped. I think it was something similar that Malm has described earlier in another po...

Re: Turtle riding (How far has the turtle brought you ?)

Do not trust the turtle! When the car was new I once in a while run down to the turtle. One claimed that you could drive 12 km with the turtle as he had done. I had a maximum of 3 km. Last fall I saw the turtle with still 2 bars left, but this time it was serious. The car run for only 50 m and was t...

Re: Canion

Great - this is a functionality I have been looking for. Another thing - I once in a while get very big problems with Bluetooth connectivity om my Samsung Tablet. I had problems yesterday - first it would only connect for a few minutes, then the Tablet was not able to locate the OBD adapter - even i...

Re: 2 bar battery status still shut down

Mine did the same thing in 2013. Mine is also from 2011. When I was driving it near my house, in a small hill showed turtle for a moment, and at home stoped like yours. With one bar. Now this happened to me also. When I was driving with one bar, suddenly the turtle showed and after 50-100 m the car...

Re: Trailer Hitch Installation

Any idea if this will fit an European 2011 model iMiev?
I am looking for the hitch to carry my bicycle.
I know that the dimensions on US and European iMiev are slightly different, but do not know if this also apply to where the hitch will be mounted

Re: Canion

Once again, Martin and Xavier - thank you so much for continuously improving this highly-desirable instrument for our i-MiEVs. I am also very thankful for Martin's and Xavier's effort. Canion has helped me a great deal to better understand the car and its batteries. I installed the 126 and it works...

Re: Canion

Hello rel 125 was the most stable release from canion.... Today, Martin published rel 126 with a new screen with batt's temp history. If canion reconnects, this is only after 8 seconds without activity, so anyway there was nothing to loose because you can consider it was clinically dead... For me, ...

Re: Canion

I have problems with Release 125. It reconnects all the time - every 5-10 seconds during charging - and then resets all counters. It is also unstable and sometime I need to remove the ODB adapter to get it connected again. I think I used Release 123 earier with good (better) results. How can I rever...
