I see, I love the phrase: "not the intended behavior", I guess they use it a lot 🤣😜
Not forgetting "broken as designed". ;)

You could always try the Android Emulator on your computer/Mac and try the app out for yourself. :)

Not removed. The API sometimes returns invalid tyre pressure data. WattCat hides them when that's the case. Give it a bit of time and I'm sure they'll turn up again.

Speaking of the tyre pressures, on a smallish phone display, the bottom section showing SOC and range seems to "push up" the pressure units over the digits when the display is in portrait mode. One cannot read the digits when that happens. Fortunately, my regular use is on a larger display phone but I noticed this on an older phone.

Can the units appear next to the numbers in portrait mode?

Unfortunately, making a UI that fits every possible screen size and density is a very time consuming endeavor. I'm currently confident that the app looks good on most modern devices out there, but I know there are issues on smaller low resolution devices

Has anyone found a fix for not being able to pause charging? Not been able to pause charging for weeks now.

I have found a way, accidentally... But not for the faint of heart.

Before leaving on a short trip, I let the boot open for 15mins - waiting to load luggage, while conditioning the cabin, not plugged in, contact off.
Upon leaving the car warned about "reduced braking feel possible".

10mins into the drive, a whole series of alerts popped up. The car proceeded to shut down completely - not even warning lights would stay on...
Support service arrived quickly, I opened the front boot (via the cable at the passenger side), we jump-started the 12V battery and all was well again.

Seems that the issue was related to the 12V battery all along (as I suspected, having googled the issue while waiting for the assistance). It'll be looked into shortly, I suspect that leaving the boot open for long enough was already to trigger the adventure.

Anyway, since this event I can pause and resume charging again!
Also, out of the blue Wattcat showed an obsolete timed charging window as active - that I had enabled at some moment (trying to make the charging pause) and disabled again. Perhaps this was the hidden confusion behind not being able to pause, or else something was reset by the zero-charge 12V battery.
