Sorry been away a few days...The included app is ok as a generic code reader but not much else in terms of the PHEV. I actually paid for the Torque Pro app which does allow for displaying the PHEV data if you load the custom PID file here. Having said the PHEV Watchdog app is great since it's tailored specifically to displaying information from plug-ins.
I went with that reader specifically because it was compatible with the PHEV Watchdog. I wanted to be sure it would work as intended and for me, $50 is pretty reasonable for a quality reader with good support and features. For comparison I own the $199 Ross-Tech VCDS reader for my VW /Audi vehicles and it is a bargain for the utility it provides. As many wise men have said, "Buy once, cry once". I've been burned more than once trying to save money buying a cheap tool. Often, they're cheap for a reason.
Yes that is correct. Engine will fire 16% or 4Ah.Trying to calibrate the useable SoC (State of Charge from where below the engine will fire) and estimated EV range available accordingly.
Can someone using the App confirm it is around 16% or 4Ah?
