    If this app is remotely accurate then I'm a very happy owner. This is with 72K on the clock.

    I also hope it’s accurate. Had similar results after 65000 miles.
    Have you used it while driving? My pack voltage frequently jumps to 220v and flashes red in the app. I hope my driving style, which is great for fuel efficiency, doesn’t kill my battery prematurely.

    Yeah that was always my concern. I use the battery more than the average owner so I was thinking mine would fail before most owners. But hopefully this is true so I can hit my 250K mile goal

    What bluetooth reader do you use? I've got the app, but need to get in gear and get something, lol.

    I like Carista. That way I can also do things like turn off the annoying reverse beeping. 20$ or so.

    The Dr. Prius app will also shut off the back up beep and seat belt chime which was a nice extra.

    I got 83% capacity on my 10 year old Prius with 96,000 miles. I am hopeful of a long battery life but I do wonder if some batteries drop precipitously at some point, especially now as I am not putting many miles on it.

    Hybrid assistant recommends the OBDLink LX which I have. It is not a cheapie, around $50 from Amazon, but it works well with both Hybrid Assistant and Dr. Prius

    Could someone please direct me to the OBD port for my 2019 Prius Limited? I've purchased the OBD tool Carista, but cannot find the port. It's not in the same location as the 2016 or 2017 models. I've found a few video's on youtube, which show the location for the 2016, but it's not in the same place. Thank you.

    I think every vehicle is somewhere right under the dashboard by your feet

    Thanks you very much for replying. I appreciate it, and I suspect you are correct. However, not being tech savvy at all, I searched for over an hour yesterday; even pulled covers off the right side under the dash, but no luck. Still haven't been able to use my Carista.
