PHEV Watchdog for all.

Postby GreyBigFoot » Thu Aug 10, 2017 7:04 pm


I've been developing in the past months a monitoring app for the Outlander PHEV that I believe will help to know better the PHEV as long as following very close the battery condition.

This is completely free with no hidden or limited features, all for the benefit of the comunity.
I'm not charging anything and will keep it that way in the future.

It's called "PHEV Watchdog" and you'll need Android 4.0.3 (minimum) to run it.

And of course a compatible OBD adapter (bluetooth only).

The following have been reported to work properly:

OBDLink LX (available at Amazon)
Konnwei kW902 (chinese clone, available at Amazon, gearbest, etc).
Vgate icar2 Bluetooth 3.0 (available at Amazon)

One cheap chinese generic OBD dongle has been reported to work also.
So others may work or not... You'll have to try, or purchase one of the above.

Here's a bit of descriptions and screenshots of the app in the post bellow at the myoutlanderphev forum:

(he download link is there also, look at the end of the topic. ... 6&start=10

Let me know if that works for you ;)
