EV 3rd party plugin for windows 7, 8 and 10.

Wed Feb 22, 2017 11:01 am

Since the are several unofficial websites, in the world wide web, detailing how Nissan leaf, Renault zoe, Tesla, EVs webservices works, and I code for fun (sometimes), I thought to develop a nice PoC (proof of concept) plugin for windows OS, that would show our EV's info in the taskbar, so here it is :)

ATTENTION: Requests for information by evplugin to LEaf may possibly reduce the existing battery charge. The purpose of this project is to serve only as a Proof of Concept (PoC) and for educational purposes. I am not liable for any damages or impacts resulting from the use of this application, in any environment. Use this at your own risks.


Features in version 1.0.0.6:
- Works on Windows 7, 8 and 10.
- Shows EV battery status in your windows explorer bar.
- Updates in realtime the charging progress.
- Gets in realtime current Km or Miles that the current battery charge can do.

Check out the app facebook page, and if you Like the idea just put a Like on it :)

INSTALATION:



After downloading and running the installer (to get the installer, visit the facebook page or use the link in the end of this post) will appear a new feature in the bar of windows explorer, with is in the image below. Just select the "Ev Plugin for Windows" option:

You should see a new element in the windows bar (as shown in the following image):

2º Electric Vehicle settings menu (the same used in the android or iOS app):

3º Lastly, register and activate the plugIn using a valid email account (you will receive an email with the activation link):

To report bugs or ask for more information / clarifications, you can put the questions here, or on the Facebook page.

That's awesome! I think anyway. I couldn't do much on the Facebook page because I don't have a Facebook account though.

There is no need to have FB account.
1.Tell me, is there any error or message on the screen, in step #3?
2.Did you use a valid email account, insert a password and press button register?

Thanks.

Yes, Yes, and USA.
I'm thinking your tool doesn't like periods "." in the email address, or it doesn't allow email addresses for user names.
Either way, I'm just about ready to give up.
