v1.2.9 is nearing release. I'm giving it a few days of testing with my own phone and car. Highlights include camper mode and window closing :)

Happy to take feedback based on the screenshot below.

Looking forward to when you start remapping battery management for improved efficiency and allow more power to the motors :D
It seems like your knowhow is way beyond the present In-house capability at JLR...

Thanks! Updated my favorite app today, put the car in camper mode just for fun, good way to reduce the SoC.

On the camper mode.... would it not be better that the camp mode button is used to start camper mode and check status/set new time ? There is already a stop button on the climate running. Nice touch that the climate says "CAMP" mode.

I agree :) I'll be making improvements to this effect in the near future. Thanks for the feedback.

Thanks for the feedback. Ideally it should actually have paused charging at exactly the specified time though to be honest, setting it from 00:00-01:00 is a bit of a corner case I may not have accounted for (though it should still work as intended of course). I'll try to replicate your results but like you, I don't get to drive much either :)
More feedback Ardevd following on from above:-

Tonight I set timed charging for 00:00 to 03:00hrs, I Enabled the timer and plugged the car in. As usual it started charging immediately, in the past I have pressed the Pause Charging button and it stops, tonight, no matter how many times I pressed the button it would not stop. I left it to try and sort itself out and after 1hr 15 minutes it was still charging. So I had no choice but to unlock and unplug the car.

When I pressed the Pause Charging button, every time I got the messages:- Charging toggle started, followed by Could not pause charging. I am on V.1.3.0
