    Nice app. agree with ekimgtr seems like around town the engine runs fast. I suppose power is being put in battery?
    city mpg is only in the 20's. however on the highway MPG returns to mid to upper 30. Nice way to build up heat at the beginning of a highway trip which is what I wanted.
    I also reset the Lifetime MPG since I bought mine used it was mostly non electric with mpg in the 40.
    I used the OBD from amazon posted earlier for $25. No issues so far.
    Nice work I am in awe at the talent of some people to put these things together. Any other projects planned?
    Is there a reason for it not displaying in landscape mode on my tablet? I want to add a display on my console.

    Did you actually get the ELM to connect?

    So I'm very excited that this option is now available for my 2011, I have been looking for this all over the website! Okay so maybe I haven't been on in a while, regardless THANK YOU. I just received my middle range expensive OBDII reader and was able to try out the app this morning, worked like a charm! I have not had much other time to play with it, but it seemed to hold where I wanted it to, revving the engine like I suspected to keep the charge when needed then back down a little. Thank you again, so as for the next step where are we/you? Were you able to look into a possible mimicking of the "cold engine" mode (well not a mode really). I know some folks were talking about this for longer trips to sort of max efficiency more like hybrid mode so to speak?!

    This app is interesting to me for the lower soc limit and the ERDTT disable without sensor hack.

    One feature I might recommend is giving the user the ability to disable the battery heater.

    The car runs fine down to a fairly low battery temp but with reduced acceleration, that's fine by me, being able to disable the heater and keep the engine off would be perfect.

    Any plans to get this working on a 2013?

    Question for the developer:

    I understand you may not have tested this, but is there any reason why your MyVoltHold app would not work with the more expensive ScanTool OBDLink MX Wi-Fi?

    Will your app only work with a Bluetooth model?

    Is it possible to test it before buy to be sure it works? Disable ERDTT is really what I want.

    You can do that with a $0.50 resistor.
