v1 User Guide for OVMS on Tesla Roadster

We are glad to release the v1 User Guide for OVMS in the Tesla Roadster.

You can download it direct from github at:

The guide contains instructions for installing the module in the car, as well as initial setup for access.

Demonstration Video of iPhone App

Apple asked for a demo video, so we made one. Thought it might be useful for you guys as well, to see the App in use. It gives a short overview of OVMS (including the car, server and app parts), then a demonstration of the OVMS App in use. Sorry for the blurry-cam, 360p only - this was rushed.


OVMS Development Kits Available

We are pleased to say that the first batch of OVMS hardware kits for developers is now available.

The development kits consists of:
- Version 1 OVMS controller board and expansion ports;
- Quad-band SIM900 modem board, customized for piggy back connectivity with the OVMS controller board;
- GSM car antenna with an approximately 4 feet long connection cord;
- Plastic case with customized support legs for secure installation of both OVMS and GSM boards; and
- Connection cable with diagnostic port connector for the Tesla Roadster.
