OBD2 app for system data

Sun Jun 02, 2019 1:48 pm

Is anyone using one of the available apps like Torque Pro, Auto.Pi, etc to obtain detailed system data on their Kona EV? I'd like to obtain current info on battery condition beyond what the vehicle provides on-screen. Information on battery/cell voltage, temperature, kwhs used between charges, kwhs delivered to the battery after charge event, etc. I've been to some websites and watched some YouTubes, but nothing concrete that suggests any app is plug and play. Any knowledge/experience with these types of apps would be appreciated.

I’ve been looking too! Zip other than some Arduino Pi kit thingy... it was useful on my LEAF v1.0 with LeafSpy.

Just found EVNotify Andriod and iOS. I need to find my OBD2 device though...somewhere boxed up after selling LEAFv1 and moving house 🤔

Here is a link with details on how to set up using torque pro on a Kona Eelctric.

I used a ScanGauge 2 for years in my Ford CMax energi. I contacted the company and received programming special for the Kona Electric. Wonderful that it shows 1 to 2 amps just for sitting there (lights and such), yet also shifts the decimal point to show 150 amps under acceleration, and goes negative for regen. Great! I am also able to watch the battery voltage decline slowly as energy is used. Motor temp shows me how hard the motor is working, yet I can see the temp stabilize as it reaches equilibrium. Interesting that the State of Charge is close to what is displayed on the dash, but not exact. I wonder if there is some algorithm Hyundai uses to tweak the result from what is reported on the bus.

ScanGauge 2 plugs into the ODB port under the left dash. I put it on a piece of velcro on top of my console lid so I can still charge my phone and use the aux input.

ADMIN, how to I post a photo?

The Android app Soul EV Spy Lite displays data from systems in the car.

After a BMS firmware upgrade, the data-PID response from the BMS has changed slightly, so the old, free "Soul EV Spy Lite" does not display BMS data from cars with the new BMS firmware version.
