About Soul EV Spy - Lite

This app (Soul EV Spy Lite) will not be improved. If you want to support further improvements, please purchase the "Soul EV Spy" app, if you can afford it.

Soul EV Spy lets the owner of a Kia or Hyundai electric car view detailed information about their electric car's main battery, by plugging an inexpensive KW902 ELM-327 v1.5 Bluetooth OBDII adapter into the standard OBDII port of the car.

A short users' guide and FAQ is available here:

Konnwei KW902 ELM-327 v1.5 Bluetooth adapters are available for around $10-$20, and one is required before Kia Soul EV Spy can extract data from your car.

None of the many ELM-327 v2.1 adapters tested with the app works properly!
Many of the cheap ELM327 OBDII Bluetooth adapters from Asia does not work with the app, and often report themselves to be version 2.1.

The only dongle currently recommended is the Bluetooth Konnwei KW902 v1.5, because it supports all the needed ELM commands to communicate with the car systems.

This app is communicating with systems in the car, which potentially can cause the car to behave different from its normal behaviour. This app is not endorsed or approved by Kia, Hyundai or the companies that produce the systems in the car. If you choose to use this app, you alone are responsible for any and all consequences of doing so.

The app texts are available in:

This app requests access to GPS location, to calculate the car speed.

This app was originally developed for Kia Soul EV 27 kWh. For this model the app estimates the SOH (relevant for deciding a battery warranty claim).
This app has partial support for all Kia and Hyundai electric vehicles (EV's, PHEV's and HEV's), e.g. Battery Management System data like cell voltages and temperatures:
Kia e-Soul 2020-
Kia e-Niro
Hyundai Kona EV
Hyundai Ioniq EV
Kia Soul EV 2014-2019
Hyundai BlueOn EV
Kia Ray EV
Kia Optima PHEV (Select Car Model Hyundai Ioniq EV for BMS data)

Was possible to read the SoH of the battery of my 2015 Soul EV. That is all what I wanted.
