  1. No, I’m really not suggesting that as I have no idea how android operates. All I meant was it’s either something being done by android itself (which does seem unlikely) or it is a feature of the Android app and not the iOS one. Honestly not sure, but (so far) I have not seen any adverts in the iOS one.
  2. I’m sure Bo is aware of this, but whilst researching something else I discovered that CarPlay now supports 2nd displays. It’s all handled “in-house” by iOS so it would be available only on cars which support it and not on others. You could set it to have next turning pop up on the HUD, or the map to display on the instrument panel (dashboard), or even have the SOC, distance etc panel to show on the dashboard. There’s a lot of cool stuff now in CarPlay.
  3. I suspect that is an android thing. I don’t see that on iOS. I do run an adblocker as well but I don’t think it would work in an app so I suspect it’s android only that suffers? I could be very wrong though!
  4. PS Ignore all the charging stops in the above screenshot! I was just plotting every charger on the trip to see where they were. The important thing is the shape of the route to demonstrate the issue.
  5. Description: I would like you to add a possibility to input a wind direction rather than a head or tailwind as it is currently Use Case: Trips are often not in a straight line meaning that at times a headwind will exist, then a crosswind, then a tailwind. An example of this can be seen in the screenshot below of a trip I have made several times. I make many other trips which head East for 100 miles before turning north and so on. Also, if planning a return trip then there is no way of including the wind (other than planning two trips which will often result in an arrival SOC on the outward journey which is too low to reach a charger on the return leg). It would be very helpful if we could input a wind direction and speed and the system then factored it in correctly.
  6. Working fine on my iPhone 11 Pro and also on my iPhone X.
  7. Yes. After you reach the first waypoint, hit share again and it will now navigate you to the next one. Apple maps doesn’t allow multiple waypoints so this is a pretty elegant t solution.
  8. Oh and I forgot to say, dark mode is a great addition too!
  9. Hi guys. Just thought I’d drop some early feedback on 3.9.5. I just did a long drive and the way there was done on 3.9.4. Then I got the 3.9.5 update and did the drive home. First of all, thanks for fixing the 90% bug. I suffered with that all the way there and didn’t have it at all on the way back. I also love that you have added a method of adjusting my actual SOC now. Ultimately it would be nice if you could get it from the iPace api but this is hugely helpful. One thing I noticed which I preferred in 3.9.4 though. In that version I could adjust the size of the information panel. Once I had set it (my preference was to show just the next turn and my SOC as that would keep it below the arrow showing my current position), it would stay the size I set it (just growing slightly to accommodate a turn instruction). The new version seems to constantly readjust that panel so it is the maximum possible size with all information. This means that it covers my current location with the panel. I like the transparency but it still obscures my position which also means I can’t check the turn direction. It’s a small thing, but I did like it the way it was before. There were a few bugs I experienced on the way there but I won’t bother as they may be fixed in 3.9.5. Certainly didn’t experience them on the way home so all in all I’d have to say “good job”! Still no turn by turn instructions, but as it now seems to recalculate properly that seems less important as I can use my satnav or Apple maps and ABRP will adjust to the new route. Finally, I like the way it shares the next waypoint to Apple Maps as it allows me to navigate easily using CarPlay for now until you can do full CarPlay integration. I know that was also in 3.9.4 but just wanted to comment on how well you have integrated that feature. A CarPlay app would be great as I could have that running on my infotainment screen and my car satnav running on the dashboard. That would let me easily monitor ABRP (phone is a little awkward in the car) and still have my satnav give me directions. Sorry, I know you’re working on that but just wanted to give you feedback of why I feel it would be a great addition. (Same sentiment for Android Auto I’m sure). Once again, thanks for all your hard work. The iPace model seems to be incredibly accurate now for me.
  10. Hi Bo, I’ve tried to do some OBD sniffing today, but been unsuccessful. Unfortunately neither of my OBD dongles will pair with my Mac so I’m unable to even start investigating. I know that OBD is possible, as I have another Beta app which uses it and it gives me data like battery temps, instantaneous power, state of charge, state of health etc. I just can’;t check it out for you as my phone works with both dongles but my computer doesn’t. However, as far as the API is concerned, you can definitely get SOC, and it will update as the car moves as long your first send a “Force Health Check” command, then a “Check SOC” command. However, there is no way to get instantaneous power via the API. To log onto the API requires a username and password (for the owner’s InControl account) and the VIN of the vehicle.
  11. I was thinking of playing around with wire shark this week to see if I could figure anything out, but I’ve never dealt with it before so don’t really know what I’m doing!
  12. Ah. Unfortunately power is not available via the API. I know you can get it from the OBD port but I don’t know the can bus codes.
  13. I just double checked. The SOC and other values update. Only the location doesn’t. There is a “trick” to it though. You have to send a “force health check” command first and then poll the API. But location would have to be obtained from the phone’s GPS as that will not update while the car is moving.
  14. I was going to check this out and let you know. I’m going to work in a couple of hours. I know it doesn’t update the location while the car is moving but I think things like SOC are updated. But I’ll try it out on my drive and let you know. Also, the API issues time limited tokens, so every poll of the API needs a login. It’s fine but it’s not the fastest responding API in the planet. Fast enough for an SOC poll though. Wouldn’t affect the calculations noticeably. What would you need? I assume all you’d need is SOC, as the location could be obtained from the phone exactly as it is now. Would you need anything else?
  15. I’ve used it. I created voice commands using Siri to precondition the car, lock it, unlock it, check the current SOC, check the tyre pressures and a few other things. It works great.
