Yes I can figure out many things, SOC=state of charge(?), having 22.7 kWh after charging is good (I think), 396.1V should be good (right?) but what is GID? Why is it at 103.6%? Is that good or bad.
So I anyone knows a web site that covers these things or the post on this sight, which I might have missed, please pass them along.
Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
The manual is not posted in this thread, but is available within the app itself, at least in the current iOS version I have. To open:
1- Open the app
2- Tap the "hamburger" (three horizontal bars) on the top right of the screen
3- Tap the words "About/Help" on the bottom right of the screen
4- Tap "Application Help" on the screen that opens.
5- You should now see detailed instructions/explanations. Note the first sentence explains how you may obtain a *.pdf version of the same instructions if you choose.
As for GIDs, a forum search pulls up at least two references to how this metric came about. In short, forum member Gary Giddings was the first to note the CANbus data that identifies the battery charge level, so got to name it and called it GIDs...not an acronym. By way of example, a new fully-charged 2011 had a maximum of roughly 281 GIDs. For more info, do that forum search.
