It looks like they are on new hardware with OVMS3.1

I just found out about this some time ago and you can't get the older version anymore so it seems I have to wait until they add i-MIEV support back in :(

I got my V3 hardware and got it working a few days ago. It's pretty slick.

I need to find a good place to mount the hardware and antenna.

They only added support a few months ago so there's still some bugs. It doesn't currently detect the car is charging, although I can see the SOC going up over time.

There's a lot more they could grab I imagine, I was looking through the code and what little I could find on the cars CANBus IDs. I wonder if the car sends the tire pressures....

Items like SoH of the battery could work too.

I never used V2 but V3 seems easier to use given that it can update itself automatically.

I couldn't find more info on the car's CAN bus, beyond what's currently being monitored. Canion tracks much more detail but the basic categories on the battery, charging and temperatures seem to be covered.

Not even sure if it's possible or safe to write data to do things like trigger preheating etc.

edit: and the new update fixed the charging detection so I can finally monitor the car charging while out of remote range(which is almost always the case)

Testing out individual cell voltages and temperatures:

Only available on local WiFi but can technically be available in the app. I can check them via SMS although it's not very readable.

Can also set up alerts for cell temperatures/voltage although this slammed my phone with alerts by default as there is a big gap in cell temperatures during charging.
