Thanks guys, year summary will be added and pushed with the next build.

Tip: I often want to monitor charging process without setting max SoC. The current build of the MyPace app will send push notifications when charging status changes, as long as Limit SoC is active. So I simply set max SoC to 99% and start the process. Every time the status goes from "Initializing" to "Charging", or vice versa (or any other status for that matter), MyPace will notify you.

Thanks Johnnyhush.

That’s great news!!

I like the idea of monitoring any state of charge change - I can see that being very useful for public chargers points where you walk away for a break - but on occasion return to find something has stopped the charging process while you were away from the car and have lost that time.

One final ask - would KWh be possible to display for the current SOC of the high voltage battery?

Thanks for all your great work!!

Nikola
Which 12v battery does the app refer to?
Is it the Start Up battery? That's the large flooded one on the left looking at the front of the car or is it the Auxiliary battery which is the small one to the right?
Does the api give the option of either or both by any chance?
Does the api have any way of giving a reading for the Telematic battery? This is a small 12v battery, a rechargeable I believe a lithium.

Thanks for all the hard work, really appreciated.

Keep safe

That’s a really useful tip, especially for public charging. Let’s you know when a charger has tripped (happened to me many times) but also warms you of an Ecotricity (or other with a time limit) has stopped for no reason other than hitting an arbitrary time limit.

That's something I'd find very useful, but so AFAIK the JLR API doesn't expose that information.

You can make some approximations to get to that number, but it most likely wouldn't work for everyone. I've seen a lot of WattCat posts on this topic, and IMO it's just better not to have this figure, then to approximate, and even then you cannot be sure if it's a match to the actual value.

Hey Ian,
It's the one on the left looking at the front of the car (you can see it after removing the plastic cover under the hood). This is the only voltage the API currently provides.

Yes - definitely agree; it’s use would really be based on its accuracy. Thanks for the update 👍🏻

Morning Nikola

Thanks for that info.
I've trawled through the Topix Workshop manual and cannot see why there are two 12v batteries! Startup and Auxiliary. There is no obvious list of functions for each, and apart from disconnecting one and seeing what stops working, I see no way of finding out!
The Startup battery is a plain ordinary flooded type, not even an AGM, almost 'cheap and cheerful'!
As the Auxiliary is buried a bit deeper, it is harder to see the model type.

Out of interest is there a published list of API functions an responses?
I was looking through the Topix stuff but couldn't find anything.

Keep safe
