cropped-canze-icon-shading.pngCanZE is an Android App that allows you to read out some useful information out of your Renault ZE car (actually Zoe, Kangoo Z.E. & Fluence Z.E.) that you cannot access using the on-board computer or display.

It uses either some custom hardware or an ELM327 Bluetooth dongle to interface the CAN-bus of the car an retrieve or request every information from there.Screenshot_2015-11-01-12-34-05[1]

The app is displaying information as gauges, bar charts or text. Ever wondered if the batteries were too hot to charge?


Here is a video of an outdated version of the app in action:

    Is the WiFi support on they way?

    Is new ZOE 40kw model supported by the app?

    • Jeroen Meijer says:

      Yes, though there are some issues reported with faulty data. The battery prediction model for the ’90 models is incorrect.

    Hi guys, nice job with the app!

    Do you happen to know what standard the CAN on the ZOE uses?

    • Jeroen Meijer says:

      Well only now I see your comment, so probably way, way too late. Not sure what you were after, as that question can be interpreted on many (OSI 😉 ) layers. On the physical layer, the main CANbus is 500 kb/s 11 bit id. For the higher layers let me refer you to the source code. Have a look at the Actors/Fields.java code.

    have you seen this? https://www.telekom.de/unterwegs/telekom/telekom-carconnect-adapter
    It would be nice to know which ELM is inside. 😀
    What do you think, should I try it 😉

    • Jeroen Meijer says:

      Sorry for the late reply Stefan. That thing will 99% certainly not work with CanZE, and probably even not work at all on ZOE or any EV.

  6. I have the new 41 kWh battery installed in my Q210.
