Good job on getting HealthKit approved by Apple, I tried multiple times and they denied, could never understand why I need workouts (I just wanted always on watch display, workouts is the only option). Maybe heart rate is why you got lucky :laughing:

Hahaha, always on is the main reason I added it.
Heart rate is a pretty hilarious metric if you have get speed wobbles or anything!!
Heart rate isn’t actually on the main release yet, it’ll be in testflight as soon as the next version gets approved.

hey it picks up both my unitie’s BT connected over CAN on my 4wd build. Do I need to do anything in the settings to account for 4wd or can I pick either or unity BT device?

App seems super clean so impressed so far!

So, it’ll only be able to track stats from one unity at a time for the time being.
It’ll track against whichever was turned on/connected first for the ride.

ok so if I wana get an accurate idea of battery consumption I just need to double those numbers, speed, and all the maps stuff should be accurate?

Yes, everything should be accurate apart from anything battery/energy related.

Version 1.2.6 is out now on the App Store!

There’s a new always on HUD mode for those of you that want to mount your phones to your board or strap them to your arm.

I also reworked the BLE connectivity code so that auto-connect is working properly again once and for all :sweat_smile:

Enjoy!!!

Telemetry for both motors and motor temps on UNITY/Stormcore are now working again for VESC 5.2.
You should just need to set up CAN forwarding by doing a scan on the vehicle settings page.

Couple of things:

  1. If anyone considers themselves an expert I could use a hand - current_in is halved for unity on VESC 5.2 and I’d love a deeper understanding of the data

  2. We’re slowly working on bigger and better features (mainly social) and if you’d like to get involved please sign up to the closed beta!!!
    Link is in the settings page of the app

  3. Just a final thank you to everyone for giving us a chance. I’ve been building this since March after I’d decided to take a break from work and it’s amazing to see everyone getting involved. You’re all amazing :slight_smile:
