myEV by MyCarma Indiegogo Campaign a Success!

We’re proud to announce that our myEV crowdfunding campaign was a huge success! Over the course of our campaign, we were able to raise $28,427 from 205 backers; 114% of our $25k goal.
myEV is the world’s first electric vehicle logger for individuals that can track energy consumption and state-of-charge on nearly all production plug-in vehicles. We’ve been logging these vehicles for a few years for fleets, and now thanks to your backing, we will be finishing adapting that technology to make the world’s best logger & app for EV owners.
Some of the app’s core features include: trip energy consumption, starting & ending state-of-charge, auxiliary load use, and battery health as well as historical data such as EV mileage, average consumption, range vs. ambient temperature, and much more. myEV also introduces a social component where EV owners are able to compare their data against their friends and similar vehicles in their area.
One of myEV’s most anticipated social features is the public charging etiquette window sticker. The window sticker includes a personalized QR code that can be used by others in the myEV community to ask if they can unplug you at a public charging station in a privacy-protected way. They may also give you an ‘electric fist-bump’, and request a connection to share info.
The logger clips in to the electric vehicle’s OBDII port, and passes off data to the driver’s phone through Bluetooth.
While the Indiegogo campaign has reached its finale, it is really just the end of the beginning for us. We’ll be putting in a lot of work over the next few months leading up to our October ship date, but we couldn’t be any more excited to get a myEV device in your hands.
If you are a backer of the project, keep an eye on your inbox as we’ll be sending out frequent updates on our progress. If you missed out on the Indiegogo campaign, you’re still able to join the movement and reserve your spot. The backers will be receiving the first units, but leave your email on that page and we’ll make sure to hold your spot in line for the first batch afterwards.
That’s all for now. Stay tuned for more coming soon!
