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
Unfortunately this sounds like an issue with the TCU and/or the InControl service. I'll try to add more granular error feedback but there's probably not much I can do from my end to resolve that particular issue I'm afraid.

Seems like this has only started since you updated to the latest version and added camper mode, could that be something to do with it?

I highly doubt that.

It keeps running the climate for more than 30 minutes, where the official app ends.

The app still sometimes have trouble pausing my charge at my target SOC.

Automatic stopping of charging fails.

I also tried to manually stop the charging.

Manually trying to stop charging.

C3DD1862-1C7B-4E78-BBE6-A4D4F0BBCB3B.png

Manual charge stop failing.

When this failed I then tried the 3rd part iOS app MyPace, but that app also failed, telling the car was busy trying to top the charge already.

I then tried the official iOS app (old version) and that app was able to stop the charge (even though it didn’t really tell, but I opened the new version of the official iOS app, and then the charging was paused)

Strange. I'll do some investigating and see what I can find. Thanks for reporting the issue.

It would be nice if there was some way of recording all the messages sent to/from the vehicle when encountering these issues. They could be sent to the developer as an aid to the problem investigation.
In the systems I worked on for many years, this sort of feature was built into the environment. When a problem was encountered, the local people could extract the messages sent to/from the problem system around the time of the problem. That was often good enough for me to find the issue and work on bug fixes (or raise hell when we found that the other side had changed their protocol without telling us) without even needing to connect to the system in question which was often quite difficult.

Another observation, or maybe I am just not keeping up. Having taken Zero out of the garage today just to make sure things are working, I noticed that WattCat is not reporting tyre pressures. Is this part of an update? :roll: :?:
