this is e-marc from Vienna/Austria. Happy to join this forum!
I did my first miles with my brand new Ampera and I'm really happy with it.
However, I am missing the possibility to check the status of the car on my mobile.
Looking for a solution brought me right across the OVMS.
Guys, you exactly building what I was searching for! GREAT job, really!
...however in connection with the Tesla vehicles only.
Found some connections to the Chevrolet Volt too: http://gm-volt.com/forum/showthread.php?12958-CAN-bus-reading-remote-vie...
I would guess that the numbers of Volt/Ampera sold will exceed the sales figures of Tesla quickly (in case they not already have done that by now) and the number of people who are interested in such a solution might be huge in case the system can be adapted to these cars. OnStar is not working in Europe...
markwj: what is the status in connection with Volt/Ampera? Is there an interest on your side to go for the Volt/Ampera? Is there a specific help needed from the Volt/Ampera community for you to develop a suitable SW?
have a great day,
