Strange. I'll do some investigating and see what I can find. Thanks for reporting the issue.
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: :?:
That's a known issue with the InControl service. It will occasionally return senseless tyre pressure data and WattCat will just ignore those. Tyre pressure values should return for you soon.

On my car that’s usually an indication that the car has gone into “deep sleep” mode after not moving for 4 days.

I think I have (possibly) figured out a (if not the) cause of inability to toggle charging from app.. I am on TCU 16.2. Reading the release notes for TCU 18.2 I noticed it fixed a DNS lookup problem for when the car was WiFi linked. I disabled WiFi and "voila" charge pause now works. Seeking software update!

I have leveraged the great work done by ardevd in putting together the JLRPY library (THANK YOU :D :D :D THANK YOU) to control charging based on the battery levels of my home PV system. I produce up to 80kWh/day in summer and about 30kWh/day in winter - and consume about between 20 - 30kWh/day. So often lots to export. It's easy to track when the system is exporting and charge accordingly. If you are interested check out post on this forum for script: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3457). It's built for the SolarEdge API but you could adapt it to any other pretty easily.

Thanks for the tip, I guess 19.2 is the greatest and latest, I will call my dealer for a TCU update.

I know this has been beaten to death, but my battery was was previously showing 81.7kwh. I know that was in the acceptable rage.

I fully charged it after a few weeks and now it shows 77.4kwh with 100% health

Is this anything to be considered about?

It's within the range of normalcy, especially if you haven't balanced recently (let it remained plugged in for half a day or so). Also, if the car is parked in a cold area that would also affect things.

I wouldn't be too concerned. But if it never goes back to 79-81 then perhaps something is going on.

First of all, congratulations to ardevd for such a useful, well made and visually pleasing app. It doesn't take much to beat JLR's official remote app, but WattCat is way, way above what i expected.

I'm not sure if this has already been reported, or if it's just some bug in my config, but i've noticed a small bug in the graphical log: The labels for each point seem to be "backwards", meaning that when i click in one of the points, the label that appears with the time and SoC% doesn't correspond with the bottom scale, and show the time and SoC % progressing backwards from right to left. Not sure if this is clear, if needed i can attach a screenshot later.

Once again thanks.

A screenshot would be very helpful! Could you try clicking the sort button to see if it makes a difference?

Thank you for your kind words :)

You're right, the sorting button corrects it.

So if the sorting is descending I get the backwards labels, as can be seen in the attached screenshot where the selected point should show 73% (the final value) but shows 60% (the initial value).
