Battery voltage and new app

Post by ajharvey » Thu Dec 24, 2020 12:25 pm

One of the things I used the old app for was checking the battery voltage - after a random and seemingly one-off battery issue a year ago. The new app does not seem to have the same indicator. Any ideas how to check (short of opening the bonnet ! :-)

There seems to be no way to see battery from the dashboard either, nor from the infotainment system (Columbus). Have I missed something?

You are absolutely right and I have noted the same issue. Seems strange with everything fitted to the car that battery monitoring is not included. I have an OBD11 unit and tried to install the 'State of Charge' status to monitor the battery, but as yet cannot get it to work. When i plugged the OBD unit in it showed the voltage as 11.6v so we do need to monitor them!

I have used one of theses for years. They can also be had with temp reading for interior.https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LED-Car-12V- ... Sw3opfrOoz
