Outlander PHEV + Canion = Possible?

Hi Reecho, Don't think Canion will work out of the box. Canion actually reads all CAN data and picks the relevant data from the headers. More than likely the headers will be specific to the "Brendan". Might be worth giving it a shot. The guys who wrote Canion might see it as a bit of a challenge to ...

Outlander PHEV + Canion = Possible?

Just been reading about the iMiev + Canion experiences and it got me wondering if this might be possible with the Outlander PHEV. Firstly, has anyone with an Outlander tried it? After reading a bit in the iMiev topics, I rushed out to our car and confirmed that we have an obd -ii plug (though I'm ne...

I agree there's no technical reason you can't just change over to a 10A plug and add some cable. However, if the friend's house happens to burn down while you're plugged in because little Johnny was playing with matches out the back, you know who they'll blame, don't you! EVs are still very new to t...

Membership of the AEVA

It's worth pointing out that there's only one category of membership, notwithstanding anything you might have seen or read on other threads.

Some people volunteer for committees and/or other functions, but we're still ordinary members.

The "Search" problem could also be because of "default" forum settings and the fact that we can't log in:
https://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtop ... &t=1991395.
I will look at this later today and see if we can fix it via the forum settings. Have to go out for a few hours right now.

Hi Coulomb, Re the links, I'd hoped they would convert them to "relative" links so they'd work properly regardless of what forum they were on. IOW, http://forums.aeva.net.au/blah..blah would simply become /blah..blah. We may do this anyway as a global-search-and-replace after the conversion has been...

Unfortunately, letting your browser drop too many versions behind the bleeding edge is just inviting hackers to help themselves to your computer.

When doing the numbers on things like this, you also have to look at Safety, because that is one thing the "Powers that Be" will be scrutinising closely. Vehicle-related injuries cost our society dearly and those of us who pay tax, pay this cost. So, if electric bicycle power is increased, that woul...

Hi Johnny, thanks for the reply. I've swapped a few SMS with him and have a bit more detail.
