Hi all,

Has anyone had any success with OVMS and the MG5 please? Struggling to find the firmware.

Many thanks

John
Hi. I’d suggest watching last weeks podcast where this is discussed in detail. MG5 development is early days and not much data is available. The OVMS website mentioned is pretty useful for the latest info too.

My OVMS kit arrived this week and spent some time today configuring it.

I have the box itself connected to the server and the latest firmware downloaded and installed.

however I have not been successful in configuring the iPhone app to connect to the European server. Have created a New car but cannot see the server details page and confirm that I have logged in.

any ideas how to set the new car details configured ?

Hi Tom. I have exactly the same issue - briefly, I have the 12v showing but now zip. So watching... FWIW I think it's best to stand by anyways as it does nothing for us at this stage.

To use iOS I had to register with openvehicles.com, the other server, Asia or is it Anericas? That works fine with my ZS EV.

You need to join the slack group where you may be able to get hold of a very beta beta firmware for the MG5.

I have no idea how to share the group details but it is called MG EV Hackers.
@mikeRES ?

Is there a way to be invited to the slack group? It seems to want me to already be a member...

I'm getting my MG5 later this month and trying to see if it makes sense to get OVMS for it as well.

Hi have followed the MG5 OVMS thread for a while. Got my MG5 long range last month. 800 miles in and super impressed. I’m very interested in purchasing a OVMS module but currently struggling to find vehicle specific firmware. Have things progressed ?

Don’t seem able to join / access the slack group. Any help appreciated.

Hello.
Is there any update on the OVMS for MG5ev? I really want to get this for mine but not before it is working.

Thanks
Mark
