So here’s what I’ve learned from the alpha code so far… 

1) It’s recording the parking status accurately, as far as I can tell. within a few minutes of parking, it’s noting that on the app screen. 

2) It’s certainly sending me alerts as you might expect for low SOC warnings. 

3) But sadly SOC isn’t working correctly with my car. For some reason, SOC is jumping all over the shop, with 22% SOC seemingly a favourite place for the OVMS code. On my quick trip just now to the shops, I noted it went from 76% SOC (which I think was fairly accurate given the number of bars I had) down to 22% when I parked up. 

Coming back, I got no update and ended up having to do a hard reboot to get the system to wake up. 

I haven’t been able to get any logs yet because I don’t have a splitter for the ODBII system. I’ll get that sorted later this week/early next.

I had values from 27% SOC down to 14% SOC to Empty and back up to 22% SOC.  I’d guesstimate my real SOC was nearer 45%.  (Although I didn’t check with LEAFSpy)

This is a problem I believe with the LEAF CAN bus, which turns itself off when parked. I’m guessing we’ll need to figure out a way to wake up CAN and then switch back off again? (That said,I think it’s supposed to stay on when charging… and I’m currently charging)
