Wow! mark do you think would be possible to add such feature in ovms in next firmware release?

Flame off :)

I think the only ovms limit is the communication layer and the vehicle - server - client model (that I prefer over the local communication one because of the wider list of functionalities that this model can provide).  I think the real problem is the very heterogeneous markets of data plans. Maybe an umts modem would make simpler connection matters but wouldn't resolve that.
When m2m sim would be commodities all over the world (and moving toward an IOT era this cannot be delayed more) this won't be a problem any longer.
Until then maybe would be nice to let "switch off" some communication behaviors (position, battery status and so on) or throated as "on demand".
