The screen resolution is the same but all the little buttons are smaller. Now my fingers are suddenly too big for messaging accurately.
A bigger phone screen might have been a good idea for entering all these numbers..
For those wanting to key this DPF monitoring thing into Torque.
Its entered manually by:
settings > Manage available ODB2 PIDs
"add custom PID" - which brings up a screen to fill in the address and equations.
See pic attached
The next step in the experiment is to keep an eye on the % reading as it gets up to the 65 -70 -80%
- We already know it can trigger at some value over 65% if the conditions are right. (XtRmn8 had one on highway at 66% and I did at %65.1.
- I don't think it will trigger a regen under 65%. I tried all sorts of "driving" methods. Even when it was 64.7% it refused to do it.
- We already know that with short trips we can get it over 70% and still no warnings. (It did trigger at 71% for me and at 72% for "Barboots"(Steve) doing short trips)
- We already know that the regen once started will burn down to about 8-10% and complete.
- We already know that the active regen sequence will abort if you switch off or let the car idle for about 2-3 minutes.
what I'm wanting to know is:
What conditions does it need to have to trigger a regen?
What minimum temperatures?
What minimum speed?
What happens if we get to 80% - does the EVIC warning kick in?
