Hi Mark,

Havent found any bugs yet.. Looking good so far.
It was a bit weird not to get a SMS after the charge finished, but then 
i realized this is how it's suppposed to be.

One small thing, i received push messages , and the time displayed is 24:53
shoudn't this be 00:53?

Tomorrow i will drive around a bit, and do some more testing

>   * Optional digital speedometer experimental code
>   * Improvements in miles->km conversions
>   * Improvements in modem initialisation and control
>   * Fixes for support of sub-zero temperatures and battery pre-heating
>     before charging
>   * Watchdog timer support
>   * App->Server->Car command support, including:
>       o Start/Stop Charge
>       o Set charge mode
>       o Set charge current
>       o Activate/Deactivate Valet Mode
>       o Lock/Unlock Car (doors only - alarm and immobiliser cannot be
>         deactivated where fitted [non-US cars])
>       o Feature list and set
>       o Parameter list and set
>       o Wake up car
>       o GPRS utilisation
>   * Social group subscription
>   * Ambient temperature monitoring
>   * Many more vehicle parameters sent to server (including speed,
>     direction, altitude, charge states, doors, etc)
> The Android App (in the market) already has experimental support for
