Maybe Canion already shows it )I have updated to 138 but I am still new to the Imiev and Canion), but it would be nice to not only have the Wh Out summary and the Wh Reg(regen) as totals for the trip, but also show the Wh Out-regen. I know I can do the math, but still think it would be nice.
Also might be a known issue, but even though my units are set to MPH, the units on GPS mph and GPS Alt still seem to be in metric units.
I drive to work at about 60 and the GPS mph shows 100.
I do like seeing the mi/kWh summary. I noticed today in the fine print on the side (at least with my eyes it is fine print on my S3) the actual mi/kWh read out. Really helps knowing how 'hard' to push on hills and how much power I am drawing a certain speeds for certain inclines.


Overall - love my Imiev and so thankful for Canion!!

The metric GPS issue was brought up previously, and I believe that is still a limitation of how Android reports those values to the app.

The Mi./kWh (or Wh/mi., depending on your preference settings) show instantaneous values on the left side panel. It's nice to be able to see current efficiency against the trip average and know if you are improving or getting more power hungry.

Hello!

Please add a file named GpsSpeed2miles.txt to folder /sdcard/BT_CAN to solve this issue.

I got this one - https://www.scantool.net/obdlink-lxbt/
and it works great!! I just have older smart phones. It drops out on my Galaxy S4, so I used my girlfriends old S3 and it stays connected pretty well.

Good luck!!

I have and Lx and it was not working well for me, I actually have an Mx coming tonight in the mail. I suspect my problem is the data rate is so high that you can not do Canion + BT music at the same time. Not sure if the Mx will help with that or not...

Much earlier in the thread Xavier posted that the LX worked fine. That is what led me to get it. But Like I said, I was having issues keeping it connected to my phone. I found that it was more my phone than the LX.
But hopefully the MX will work for you - let us know!!

Bluetooth music takes a lot of bandwidth. My Droid Turbo can handle doing both music and CaniOn, but the connection is more stable with only CaniOn running, especially after disabling the Cockpit view.

The only thing I have to watch is that if the car is off (usually after a quick charge), the pairing gets screwed up and the radio prompts for pairing. I have to close CaniOn or EVBatMon right when quick charging finishes or things get messed up. I believe it is an issue with my head unit, as the phones don't usually do this.

My Newsmy NU3001 head unit works pretty well with my MX as long as WiFi is turned off. I still can't understand why the FCC put Bluetooth and WiFi so close together in the spectrum. Nearly every device I own has issues with both being on at the same time.
