Attn: Kia Soul EV developers

FYI: The attached feedback message arrived in a support ticket. I responded:

I will pass on your message to the Kia Soul EV module developers. I think that some of the behaviour is intentional (for example the left blinker only while locking), but don't know enough about that particular vehicle support module to be certain.
In general, if you see bugs in the firmware, the best place is to raise them directly on GitHub here:
https://github.com/openvehicles/Open-Vehicle-Monitoring-System-3/issues <https://github.com/openvehicles/Open-Vehicle-Monitoring-System-3/issues>
This support ticket system is only for general usage issues.

If you would like to correspond directly with the user, let me know and I will forward email address.

Regards, Mark.

> Good day.
> My vehicle configuration is KIA SOUL EV year of manufacture 2004 Vehicle ID:
> <REDACTED>, OVMS Firmware: Server 2.1.1 -20121216, Car: 3.1.005 /
> ota_1 /, App 3.12.4. Operator 4G-Tmobile. GPS and GSM antenna original OVMS.
> OBD II connector new version left side also original OVMS. I found more
> problems that are not working on this configuration and Android app as they
> should. When I close my car with the original key, OVMS shuts down and no
> longer auto-opens with the OVMS app and loses application data such as
> mileage and vehicle status or is locked or unlocked. When the vehicle is
> locked through the application, only the left side of the hazard warning
> lights flashes and not all of them still close when the key is closed. After
> four hours of OVMS, the tire pressure and battery temperature data are lost.
> Reading the tire pressure values ​​is always correct or almost always
> does not correctly load one of the wheels. The app is not displayed at all

> Thank you in advance for answer. Sincerely, Peter Kravec
