  1. Happy to announce the EV Watchdog Free App (Android only) has just been published.

    Following the PHEV Watchdog App (which supports the Outlander PHEV, Kia Niro PHEV, Kia Optima PHEV and Hyundai Ioniq PHEV) and after some requests I've decided to create a new Android (only) monitoring App for Kia and Hyundai EV models.

    Watchdog is a complete monitoring App, it does not only extract and display info provided by the car systems in real time but creates more stats and analysis and keeps track of everything by storing historical data in it's internal database.

    Here a couple of screenshots of the live monitoring screens (or where you see the info while driving)

    The App keeps track in a list of the battery condition (changes in SoH and SoC). And you'll get one card for every changes seen (screen on the left). From each card (one tap) you'll have access to the details of the recorded state (right screen).

    You can get the App from playstore here:

    And be sure to check the FAQ on the website:

  4. v1.4 now available

    Changes for v1.4
    • fixed cost for kwh not parsing
    • fixed max temperature display (was showing min)
    • fixed pack size (39/64kWh) recognition for Kauai/Niro
    • upgraded db to v5

    Premium version, all the above plus:
    • added NearBy screen autoupdate option
    • added sync data option

    Biggest change is for the premium version where the sync data option is now available.

    In order to sync data to the web server do as follows (see attached screens):
    1. activate the option in the settings menu,
    2. agree data uploading,
    3. go to the website sign up page (blue link in the dialog box) and register there providing your NetId code that was copied to the clipboard by the App.
    4. verify your email.


    Then from the App make sure you are connected to a data network and hit the "Sync Now" option in the App's menu to force to send the data on normal usage this is actually not necessary as the App will try to sync several times by itself during operation).
    Now log in to the website: https://evwatchdog.net, fill any missing info in your profile, read and agree with the terms and you're in. You should see all your data there plus other interesting graphical and tabular analysis.

    Hallo Daniel,
    After buying the Premium version of the EV Watchdog app, the customer is able to register and create an account.
    The NetID has to be filled in.
    This NetID should be copied to the clipboard.
    Problem: there is no sign of message about this NetID.
    So the account cann't be created.
    How can this problem been solved?
    I hope you can help me asap.

    • Added support for Hyundai Ioniq 5
    • Added actual battery condition card
    • Added scoped file storage support for Android 10 and above

    • Fixed battery map for MG ZV ES
    • Fixed consumption in trip details
    • Several other minor fixes and improvements

  12. Just added a new feature on the website (for Premium users).
    The Trip Mapper (that's the loupe icon on the navigation box on the right).
    You'll need a TripLog... file produced by enabling the Data Logging option of the App (files are save under the Download\EVWatchdog\trips folder).
    Just upload the file and see the magic!

    Important: it should be a TripLog... file generated by the latest version (v1.8) of the App.

    Daniel, is there a chance that you'd be able to build this as an Android Auto compatible app and viewable while driving ?
  14. Android Auto requires that the App to be in one of the following categories to be approved:
    - Media apps
    - Messaging apps
    - Navigation, parking, and charging apps

    Unfortunately the Watchdog App does not qualify in any.
  15. v1.9 now available!
    • Added support for Ioniq 5 RWD 58kWh.
    • Upgraded charts (Premium)
    • Added cells voltage and cells histogram charts (Premium)
    • Removed cells voltage map (Premium)
    • Several other fixes and improvements.
    So the cells voltage map is now gone for the Premium App (and should be removed from the Free App on a future release) it was becoming unreadable and useless for the latest EV models with almost 2000 cells. I've then redone the charts and added a cells voltage bar chart and histogram which should be a better tool to check the status of the battery pack.

    My interest as a Hyundai Ioniq 2020 owner is mainly driven by preferring a wifi adapter over a bluetooth one, and EV Watchdog actually lists a wifi module as supported!

    Feature-wise, didn't really catch this in the screenshots, can the app ask the car for its charging history? Like "when, odometer, start-and-end battery charge and percentage" type readouts?

    Things like live-tracking and cloud syncing aren't really important to me, just the charging history and current health statuses, so are the simpler battery-history reports (if available at all) and current SoH info available in the Lite version?

    Thanks for offering what seems like a more modern alternative to Soul EV Spy!
