Yes, I also get CaniOn seemingly-random dropouts sometimes with my really cheap Android tablet, but far less often than in past years. Pushing the 'connect' button on the OBDLink sometimes works without having to unplug the unit - read the OBDLink manual on the connecting sequence, as IIRC there's a two-minute time limit associated with this.

So here's the funny thing, I see posts from people saying that when they run Canion on an old tablet - they don't have any issues. So I grabbed my gen 1 Samsung Tab3 - and Canion runs FLAWLESSLY. No drops at all.
I even took my sweetheart out to dinner last night for Valentines day. Without closing Canion I shut off the display and tossed the tab into the glove compartment. After dinner, when I reached into the glove compartment and opened up the tab screen - IT WAS STILL THINKING IT WAS CONNECTED. That never happens with my new phone. As soon as I shut off the car, my new phone doesn't seem to see the ODBlink any more.
stoked....

Bonsoir to Everybody.
My particular greetings to the boss Joes (He was one of the first experimenters (is it a real word in your country???)

Canion is working perfectly on my wife's car on any device I use(d), since a long time.

I use no tricks at all, and if it doesnot work as intended, ask for for a refund...

BTW, I was really surprised to see a huge amount of $ (around 100) coming from somebody happy from canion (tru Martin)....

Regards

Hi ecco. You need a cheap Android device and a genuine OBDLink LX or MX Bluetooth device. No iPhone capability. Invaluable app for the i-MiEV, and be sure to toss a few pennies their way even though the app is free.

CaniOn was updated to 140 in my phone. Came here to see some information of it, but I see I'm the first one to write about it. It seems, for me, just one new thing, but a great improvement, the one that I was asking for since 2013. I think Ah of the battery was finally added. I was following that value with EvBatMon, dropped to 32,3 Ah today. I couldn´t see the value yet with caniOn, but there is a new graphic added and I believe is to follow the Ah number with time.
My i-MiEV is now with more then 106.000 km. Only one problem in the last 2 and an half years, one of this days was totally dead in the morning, changed the original 12V battery and problem solved. I suppose it was time for it and I figure out the problem in a second.
I made a video from a journey of 215 km made on a portuguese hot summer day, to show how I do it without getting the high temperatures that in the past resulted in high losses in mine i-MiEV battery capacity. I just keep the AC in maximum always going to the battery when driving.

Hi Malm, thanks for letting us know about the CaniOn update and for your video - always enjoy seeing real-life driving scenes from other countries, and got the gist of what you were showing without understanding a word ;) . Your ducting the cold air directly into the battery pack sure works!

Hi there. I am new in this interesting Forum. Malm, I wonder how do you can send the cold air to the battery when driving. I have the same problem of high temperature. Thank you.

I think in the bottom of that page you have an explanation how to do the modification that gives you the possibility of deflecting the air to the battery. But you can find it in other forum pages.
