Re: Mismatch between dashboard % and LeafSpy

The interesting thing is at low and high temperatures the bottom end changes quite a bit. When it was 80 this summer the dash and leafspy were pretty similar. The last few days it's been well below zero and I've noticed that the difference at the low end is MUCH larger. Last night it was about -3 and when the dash said 24 Leafspy said 42.

Yes, it is very useful but then begs the question: which one is right? I use a similar meter (LeafDD) that gets particular attention when I'm at the "bottom of the pack"...especially when it's cold out (like it is now).

I'm "guessing" LeafSpy is more correct and the dash SOC meter is being optimistic at the top end and pessimistic at the low end, similar to the GOM :)
