I received my OVMS a couple days ago and have been struggling with making it work correctly. Just for the record, I am upgrading from my older V2 unit in my Tesla Roadster 2.5.
My friend who also drives a roadster and was doing the same upgrade with me at the same time. His new unit is working correctly, while mine keeps loosing all the records when we enter them.
For example, I select the vehicle configuration and select the appropriate fields. Hit save, go to another section and when I return the Vehicle section everything is fine BUT when i do any changes to the Autostart configuration then press the save and reboot option, the unit reboots then all the fields are empty. Its like nothing was saved on a reboot.
Here is some of the things we tried. Please note we were successful in getting my friends unit running.
My vehicle ID is TROADSTER1334
All the vehicle info is being gathered when connected to the Roadster. (Units display in KM even though we have selected Miles)
Have also just used USB to power the unit as well when working at my desk to test.
We tried to switch the unit from AP mode to Client mode. When the unit reboots its automatically in AP mode.
We tried to switch to NO WIFI and it reboots and is back in AP mode.
We upgraded the firmware using an SD card and it instant loaded it into Firmware_0 (i believe)
New firmware is cool! Like the dashboard. But same issues.
I am using a MACBook and the chrome browser to make these changes. Is there a setting we are missing? or is this a faulty unit?
