[Ovmsdev] Special cable for Kia Soul EV for OVMS V3.

Relatively easy. I just give them pinouts, some money, and a week later a bunch of cables arrive.

There is a minimum order quantity of 50 cables from the supplier, so it has to be justifiable.

Perhaps best to have a look at that M-can bus (with a hand-built cable), and see if there is anything on it that makes this worthwhile. You can find OBDII pigtails on AliExpress/eBay/Amazon that make this relatively simple (only need to solder the DB9 end).

Regards, Mark.
