Xavier,
Yes, I believe that Canion is operating fine. But I cannot figure out why I am having such an issue with either keeping my BT connection, or re-connecting after it is lost.
Thank you

I am sorry: But BT links are capricious depending on devices...

This project was started be myself and Martin, for free and without any warranty it would work for everybody and any android devices....

Xavier - I think you have done a wonderful job. The information from the app is fantastic. I just wish I could get my devices to stay connected so I can start building a log.
Thank you so much for the application. I have just returned from holiday and will be sending some $$ your way in appreciation for your work - even if I can't keep my devices connected to the BT dongle ;-)

Canion is a wonderful app that has given me very much insight into the lives of the batteries.

I also have/had problems with BT. When driving it could sometime stop working and was hard to pair again. Almost always when the car was turned off and the Canion was still on, the BT connection stopped working.

I now have tried to turn off a number of Canion panels. Basically I am only interested in Battery Voltage. This has helped and 1000 km has elapsed without any disconnect.

My personal theory is that there is Canion overload that causes the problems. I used to delete the BTCAN folder and that also helped for some time

I have tried the Galaxy S3 phone, and it seems to stay connected - much better than the S4. I also make sure I exit properly from Canion before the car/connection shuts off. That seems to make things much easier when I reconnect again.

I am going to try and automate using the "Automate" app from Llama Labs. Has anyone had any success with this? I am sure I will figure it out. Just haven't had the time to play with it.

Also, can some folks help me out with some of the 'tell tale' signs that I am looking for in battery health? Temperature range (F°), low voltage or high voltage (%), etc.

And lastly, is there a way for the Canion to stay on while I charge and the ignition is off? Please advise.
Thanks!!!

caniOn | Release 138

Hello!

Release 138 is out now. There is a new panel "my Trip Timer 2" - a clone from panel "my Trip Timer". So your are able to arrange f.e. interesting data for driving and loading. Panel "Altitude History" shows now also altitude difference. Altitude difference is also available to panels "my Trip Timer"/"my Trip Timer 2".

Altitude difference is higher as estimated by me, even on looking panel "Altitude History".

Thank you for improving CaniOn. My best companion in my i-MiEV journeys.

Martin - thank you for this latest upgrade and looking forward to trying it out when I get home, as where I live altitude changes have a significant impact on range.

(Currently touring the US in a Tesla and it's interesting to note that Tesla's range prediction algorithm is incredibly accurate - their predictive graph readily shows at what point in the trip the consumption will increase or decrease as a function of elevation changes.)

Great Job Martin.... ;)
I wonder if it is possible to have Charging DC Volts and Charging DC Amp when we charge in CHAdeMo ?
So the MyTrip Timer 2 woulb be perfect !!

The battery volts and amps on the left side panel are pretty close to what the CHAdeMO unit puts out.

It would be cool if CaniOn can detect charging from both AC and DC sources and count the Wh separate from Wh Regen.

OVMS is able to detect when charging from either and displays "Standard 16A" from AC and "Standard 125A" from DC. It doesn't show live voltage and amperage for DC like it does for AC, but it knows that the car is charging from CHAdeMO.

I'll have to try out 138. I'm still on 137, which is remarkably stable.

Thanks.
