Did you understand what was the problem.
picked my mg up at the dealer today my ovms is shipped.
will build it in this week
not sure how I missed it but somehow I hadn’t chosen MG in the vehicle config set up. I had a problem with my hologram SIM card not activating straight away so had to come back to finish the setup later.

Successfully configured and installed this week. Had some confusion with passwords but their support was excellent. Used adhesive Velcro strips to secure on the bulkhead above the brake pedal and tidied cables under the carpet! Works great

ABRP OVMS.PNG

I have only limited success with linking ABRP. It seems to work initally then dosent keep the live feed.
I have attempted to use it twice. The first time it seemed to work to my first charge stop only then didnt update the live data.

I unlinked the Live data and went through the linking process again yesterday generating a new code. Again it worked initially at the beginning of my journey then seemed to loose the live feed during the journey. It seems stuck on the inital live reading and has not updated since - says "not connected" under live data OVMS status.

OVMS is still working ok and updating, but not ABRP.

I went through the linking process but were never able to get a life feed. I miss a good tutorial on how to link the zsev to the ovms and then to ABRP. I followed the manual in ovms but never successfully linked to ABRP

Are we going to see an OVMS update anytime soon to fix the incorrect SOC (and other errors) showing on the BMS updated cars?

Not sure if this is still relevant as this is an old thread. I finally managed to get my OVMS to work today. There is a new firmware available, released end of September which allows you to tell the software if you’ve had the newer (post Jan 21 BMS update). I selected this and the state of charge mirrors that of the car.

the only issue I have is the estimated range is showing as 8 miles and hasn’t changed while charging. Ideal range is showing at 78miles on 48% charge….
