MG ZS OBD integration


Avatar

I am a paying abrp user. I drive a 2021 mg zs ev. I am located in Australia.
I recently started using torque pro with a Bluetooth obd dongle. I used pids which I found online.
Torque pro now correctly displays the SOH, SOC and SOC Raw amongst other
things.

I have been using the SOC shown in torque to compare with the estimate shown in ABRP. They are pretty close.
Just wondering if you can add the pids for the mgzsev to abrp so that
I don't have to run torque pro to see my actual soc and so ABRP can
accurately calculate charging stops on the fly.
Thanks in advance.

Mg ZS EV already is supported by ABRP. You just need a BLE dongle.

I have a Bluetooth OBD dongle. As mentioned I can get data from the dongle into TorquePro like State of charge. However it appears that ABRP is not seeing the live data and is still estimating the battery percentage rather than showing live data from the OBD dongle. Do I need to add the dongle somehow to the ABRP app? Or do I need to buy a different dongle?

I'm not sure if I follow, did you setup a connection between ABRP and Torque Pro already? If not ABRP can not get the live data.

I would recommend to use an OBD Dongle with BLE and setup an OBD connection from ABRP directly. To do so add a new car (if you don't have one already), click the gear icon behind it and scroll down to the telemetry options and select the OBD option.

Where is the gear icon. As you can see from this screenshot of the app there is no gear icon.

Is there a Bluetooth OBD dongle that is known to connect directly with ABRP (without going via torque) on the MG ZS EV?

When you select the OBD setup in car settings there is a link to a site with more information that also mentions some OBD dongles.

Here's the link to the page where all information can be found: www.iternio.com/abrp-obd

But you can also find this linked in the setup process :)

I can see you're still using Torque pro, but should you still wish to connect to ABRP directly, just make sure the dongle you're using uses BLE and then I'd recommend to add a new saved car for the new connection:

1. Go into: Settings (Advanced) > Car model
2. Click the option ‘Add my car’
3. Specify the vehicle model, name it
4. Select a linking option in the list
5. Follow the setup instructions

Let me know if there are any issues!
