Small question/request: is it possible to show the interior cabin temperature in Wattcat? On the details screen or possibly on the main screen (next to the target temp).
No, unfortunately the API does not expose that information.

Would it be possible to read battery temperature?

If it's not esposed by the API no. I leave the final answer to Ardevd but considering the difficulties we're having in reading (actually in correctly interpretating) the battery data from the OBD port I would be surprised if we could get the same data from the API.

Unfortunately it's not possible through the API. JLR is in economic hardships these days so they're not going to spend money adding features to the API for power users like ourselves I'm afraid

They can be shown while you are in the car if you add support for OBD 2, we know the PIDs to use.

This is where the OVMS box comes in the game. The purpose is to conect to the OBD2 port, and send data to a centralized server, and you access those data with your phone, just like the Jaguar/wattcat/... app of this world. The difference with OVMS is that on the OBD2 bus you have way more information than on the API. The Jaguar is not yet integrated with the OVMS , but it is an open source project with many other car. Once we understand better the mass of info we have on the Canbus, that should be "quite easy" to implement the Jaguar integration to OVMS ecosystem and phone app.

Did you remove the sec.bat. voltage in the version 1.6.2? I can't see this value anymore under the details.

It's back in 1.6.3 ;)

ardevd, thanks for replacing that Aux Battery readout.

The API Aux Battery voltage displayed by Wattcat v1.6.3 for "my" I-Pace, is the average voltage of the Start Battery and the Aux Battery.

I have been monitoring both of my batteries via bluetooth on a phone app since 17th Oct 2020.

Today WattCat Aux Battery voltage displayed is 12.8V

The Matson Monitor App displayed my Start Battery as 12.64V and the Aux battery as 12.93V. This was 59 hours since the last 12V battery recharge event.

e.g. ( 12.64 + 12.93 )/2 = 12.785 or approx 12.8V :o

BTW, I recently replaced my OEM 12V Start Battery with a new 12Volt 55Ah AGM battery, to compare the charge and discharge cycles with dissimilar and identical battery characteristics. i.e. Wetcell/AGM vs AGM/AGM.

My AGM Start Battery is now coping very well with the parasitic loads when the vehicle is locked and unused for many days.

My I-Pace was initiating recharging events lasting about 75 minutes from the Traction Battery, this was triggered when the OEM Start battery dropped to approx 12.2 Volts.

The AGM battery voltage droop after charging is much less than the OEM Start Battery and it also has better self discharge and cycling properties too.

Cheers, Steve

Hi, First let me thank @Ardevd for all the work on this wonderful app.

My first question is about the list of Software Updates on the Vehicle details screen - is this supposed to be the software updates to my specific vehicle, or updates available to any i-pace? I had assumed it was for my vehicle, but the latest update shown in the list is IMC S20C1_20.48.3-635557 with a date of 14 December 2020, but I had two updates after that, one required me to approve the installation, and the second was auto installed. The dashboard shows latest software as OS 2.0.8a P3AX installed 13th of Feb
