On the "Charge" (middle) tab of the RavCharge
page it will say the time [h:mm] "to normal charge" or "to extended charge" based upon what mode is set in the car (and unfortunately no, you can't change the mode from Entune or the app.)
I think that Entune also shows the remaining charge time when the in-car timer is not enabled so it is easy to determine when the charging will be completed.
Yes the car/Entune will show you a remaining charge time whether or not your timer is enabled, but the time it shows you is wrong (which is a great reason to use RavCharge instead).
Could this also be displayed on the RAVCHARGE web page? Perhaps even a new text/SMS command TIME that will indicate remaining charge time?
The aforementioned "Charge" tab of the site shows the time to charge for any voltage/amperage combination. I suppose I could add this to the status text command but if you're not actively charging it would have to assume something about what sort of power source you'd use to charge. I guess I could just use whatever volts and amps you last set the web interface to...
Also is there any way to show the state of charge in a true percentage? I think right now 100% shows when the battery is full in non-extended mode. If extended mode is enabled it still shows 100%. (I know this is a long shot but I have to ask.)
We've gone back and forth on this one ad nauseum. Yes, I could do a simple division to adjust the displayed 100% (which is 100% of a normal charge, or 35 kWh usable) to a percentage of a full extended charge (so something like 83%, but there are lots of reasons why not to do this. One good reason is that 35 kWh for a full normal charge stays constant regardless of battery degradation, while the full amount for an extended charge is all over the place for different users with different degradation and different climates, etc. And even if I did perform this adjustment it wouldn't help that Entune can't "see" any charge information above the full normal charge threshold anyway, so the displayed SOC would never go above "83%", which seems unsatisfying (and gives you less resolution, since there would then only be 84 possible SOC values rather than 101).
Finally is there some info on how to setup and use the timers someplace?
Sure, I consider this thread the unofficial "manual" - go back to the first page and there should be a good starting point there. Otherwise you can always just email me at ravcharge_at_gmail_dot_com and I'll be happy to help you out with your specific situation.
