Re: OVMS for Mitsubishi i-Miev, Citroen C-Zero and Peugeot i

Yep, that's all the hardware you need. You also need a SIM card. I got mine from PTel. The plans are really cheap.

The OBD "right" connector will put the wire towards the center of the car on the US model. I coiled my wire above the connector in the car and zip-tied the module to one of the metal brackets under the dash. I put the GSM antenna on a piece of flat plastic behind the radio (antenna has an adhesive back), and the GPS went on another bracket beside the radio (GPS antenna is magnetic, both are far enough away from the radio). The wires were easy to feed down to the driver's footwell.

Here's pictures and links.

Thanks. A few more things:

Link to the firmware compatible with the i-MiEV: (right click, and save as a hex file.)
https://raw.github.com/markwj/Open-Vehi ... mental.hex

Directions on flashing:

The PICkit 2 comes with a disc, but it has a bunch of PDF files on it. You can download the program here:

Keep in mind the orientation of how the PICkit is attached to the board.

The PTel SIM card can be activated online, so there's no need for a spare phone to activate

It's working good so far. Had an issue before where location would show my car near a gold mine in the U.K., but that might have been lack of signal from the GPS since I have it buried under the dash. Location is working now.


No new features, just bug fixes.

Good to hear that it's working. The location is always wrong in the app after a restart of the OMVS module until the OVMS server is updated with correct position.

Ok. In the notifications, I have my units set to miles, though the Odometer reading is still in Km. Range readings are correct.

I believe I've located and fixed this bug in the code now.

Could you check if the speed is reported correctly in the app? I assume the same issue also applies for the speed.

Here are a few more notes to make it easier for anyone else installing OVMS in the i-MiEV.

Helpful Videos:

How To: Update OVMS Hardware (This includes a good general overview in case you don't know what this is all about).
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MXaRWT8LAmY

Weekend Workshop: Open Vehicle Monitoring System 101 (a bit long and detailed).
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6pKYyyiR9A

Note the vehicle type should be set to "MI" for the i-MiEV.

Module:
VehicleID:P-xxxxxx
VehicleType:MI
Units:M
Notifications:SMSIAT+CIPSHUT

For PTEL the APN should be set to "wholesale".

GPRS:
APN:wholesale
User:
Password:
GSM:T-Mobile
GPRS: OK
Server: Connected OK

Make sure you have set a password for the server (the default is OVMS).

Here is the response to the DIAG? command:
