Hi, Mark has asked me to improve documentation from the user's point of view and I am stuck on some Leaf and ACC points that I am hoping people can help with. 1) Leaf questions 1.1) Does the TCU still need to be disconnected for Gen 2 cars to enable remote access? 1.2) Has anyone used or tested charge start/stop on a Nissan Leaf? Someone made a comment about needing to use the CAN Write feature of v3 to start-stop charging and cant find reference. 2) ACC features 2.1) Is the following documentation relevant to current version OVMS ACC Configuration (Tesla Motors Club, Oct 2017) - is this valid for non-Tesla cars? v2.5.5 firmware (2013) - is this still valid? 2.2) Where is the source code for ACC? I cant find "CHARGEBY" in any github repos. 2.3) Can someone send the help output for ACC Thanks, Rob _______________________________________________ OvmsDev mailing list OvmsDev at lists.openvehicles.com http://lists.openvehicles.com/mailman/listinfo/ovmsdev Robert, Thanks for the offer to help out. Perhaps you can look at it from the user’s point of view, and try to improve our documentation and approach for that? Regards, Mark.

Where I can possibly add value is make things easy for people to use (eg documentation, etc) experienced on UI/UX design, etc. as an ex developer, good at testing and finding problems. Some initial thoughts on activities are to make it easier for non technical people to use OVMS, help doc author pull out user only specific content to a user manual and make it non-technical (renaming current user manual to developers manual) to help people see roadmap, provide a mechanism to see who wants what and who is working on it. to allow developers and users to display problems with their vehicle only, add Labels to the github issues list or group by project (I am not an expert on GITHUB so please be patient) update GITHUB readmes to better direct people that find GITHUB first. Please let me know if anyone is dealing with any of these areas add and/or vote for what things you think I can help with by putting a comment next to the activity above.
