I plan to attend and will bring my Gid meter. I'll follow Gary's recommendation as to whether to update software now or wait for v 1.10.

I would like to do the opposite of a drag race. Find a quiet street, get the RAV4 and a LEAF going side-by-side at 35 mph, and see how far each can coast in neutral.

I have posted the F1.09 firmware.
Primarily, it adds displaying the "Real SOC" percentage.

See: http://www.wwwsite.com/puzzles/socmeter/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I will bring F1.09 with me tomorrow, and a means
to Flash your GID-Meter, if you desire.

F1.10 should/will improve Logging, but probably not of
much benefit to anybody who does not do Logging,
or a Logger-Person who does not need to get every last
CAN Message.

Along those lines, I have done a crude wall-to-wheels comparison with the LEAF.
If you have any other quickie tests before tomorrow's meeting I'll be happy to try. Gotta bring it back tomorrow afternoon.

A great Gathering with 9 persons, one RAV4-EV, and 6 LEAFs.

Two GID-Meters updated to F1.09, and lots of good discussions.

It was good to see all of you.

Next Gathering in two weeks in Santa Ana, at the Hometown
Buffet on 17th Street, just East of the I-5 freeway.
