Joined the Group today. We just took delivery of 9 new bolts. We are using CMI Model 3703 Level 2 smart chargers with cellular, RFID & ZigBee capabilities.
I am looking for a device that could possibly plug into the OBD II plug to obtain state of charge/remaining miles when the vehicle is within range of the charger. This would allow us to know if we can
dispatch the vehicle for further driving without connecting to the charger to find out. We do not need the entire menu of services offered by Onstar.

Wow, 9 Bolts? Congrats! I presume this is a commercial fleet operation, not that you just have a huge family? :)

I can't offer advice on any OBD device to give state of charge, that seems somewhat hard to come by lately. But can you just train your drivers to pay attention to the charge level when they get out of the car?

I'll be participating in a BC Hydro study shortly where they will be stuffing OBDII devices in the cars to monitor battery SOC and studying charging habits. I'll contact the person I've been speaking with to see if he'd be OK with sharing some information with you on the devices they'll be using to monitor battery SOC. It sounds like it's an off-the-shelf device, I don't expect a problem with sharing the knowledge.
