    Does anybody with an imiev\ion\czero able to provide a link to an obd dongle that actually works with an android phone? Seem to remember someone had found the correct one to work with Canion I think it was. I did purchase a dongle last year and it didn't work.

    Just bought the correct dongle and used canion to look at the battery as we are approching end of warranty in june. Havent noticed any battery degradation but rhought it a good idea to check whilst still under warranty. What exactly am I looking for? Canion doesnt display Gids (whatever they are) and what did the car start with when new anyway? Hopefully someone on here knows.

    If you have the time to have a good trawl around on the US based i-MiEV site, you should find discussions on using Canion to look at battery capacity - I just took a look over there and it looks like someone's released another Android app that seems to be all about monitoring the battery - EvBatMon - check out the discussion here:

    Well many thanks for finding this @misterbleepy EvBatMon App for Android is great. Just bought for £9.50 and tested the ion. Despite being 5 years old in June the car has 92% capacity. This is at 11000 miles covered. Got a feeling it was about this when we purchased 18 months ago. Have not noticed any decrease in range at all. Bodes well for the next few years of ownership.

    That's good to hear.
    One day I should actually order one of these setups and have a go myself.

    Thanks very much for the offer - I would like to see the setup. I will PM you when I have some free time coming up (i.e. not in the school holidays).
