Hey CaniOn developers! Do you think there might be a code you could send to make the vehicle go into turtle mode?

Bonjour
We will never do this....

a) Because we have no idea about the command to send.

b) Since the beginning, for security reason, canion only listens the trafic on the canbus.
It has never sent any command, and will never do it on a public release.

Just an FYI, the CaniOn doesn't work very well on the LG E970 smart phone.
It gets Hung up and also shuts down if I have it running while driving.

Will have to see how it behaves on my Toshiba Thrive Tablet.
I think I just need to find an older smartphone that it works very well on and is Uber cheap and just use that just for the car.

The first thing I'd try is to turn off the screens you won't need. I shut off Cockpit (virtual dash), the two map displays, and heater/AC consumption based on the season (AC disabled in winter, heater in summer).

The Cockpit display requests a lot of information from the car, even when it is not the screen in use. Go into settings and turn it off, your FPS will drop by at least 100 FPS, making the app much more stable.

Hey, how about this feature idea:

An annoying, loud beep that would sound whenever you have reached a set speed and/or set consumption?

It would act as a manual cruise control - you wouldn't have to look at the gauges to drive economically, you'd just have to listen.

Obviously there should be a setting to set minimum alert threshold for both speed and consumption. Sound would continue even if you go over the limit. You could turn on and off them on separately.

Hat tip to JoeS for the idea.

Thanks, I already had a few things turned off, but will try it again.

Honestly I wouldn't mind another smartphone just for the car

Hi all,

Actually i like the beep idea.

Gliders use a tone in the cockpit to hear the lift and help the pilot judge his energy. Perhaps canion could do that also. A variable tone that changes frequency with instanious or perhaps average consumption. It might be a good way to provide feedback to the driver without distraction.

That would be something interesting to try.

How about a few different tones? There could be options for a zero power tone while in a drive mode, a tone for the middle portion of power, and a more annoying tone for the top portion of power consumption. The first portion would be silent, except for a user programmable threshold in kW.

Each tone can be individually turned on or off, and the programmable threshold could be set for anywhere from 2-50 kW.

Tigger, I have a Galaxy S Captivate, a Galaxy S3, and an Acer Iconia A500 tablet. All three run CaniOn well, especially with the Cockpit view turned off. I'd say any upper end phone from the last 3 years should work well for you. There is also the custom ROM route if you need to boost the speed of the phone.

Re: Canion Baro?

Mon Jun 29, 2015 10:32 am

i noticed there is a column in the database for 'baro'-- is there a barometer or some sensor measurement of atmospheric pressure in these little jelly beans?

Is the GPS data (lat. long. speed alt) taken from the vehicle's gps or from the android device running the app?
