That helps a lot!Rafe wrote: ↑Jan 20 2019 6:24pmHi Bubba
I gave 18.0 beta a 60 mile run today.
The good news is walk assist works a treat. I use 9 levels of pedal assist and to walk alongside the bike up a 33% climb I ended up selecting level 9 and bottom gear and it was faultless, really smooth constant speed (better than my BBSHD even) Plus I had two large panniers and a rear rack bag as well. You have done an excellent job on that.
The bad news is Cruise control. It works perfectly with a target speed set in the configuration menu, I settled on 12mph in the end and it cycled well between 11mph ish and 12mph, the default 15mph was fine too. But when I got adventurous and tried to test 'maintaining current speed' then after I pressed the down button it went straight to the previous 12mph setting and maintained 12mph with no button pressed. Fortunately I have the rear brake wired to cut out the motor and once I had slowed the bike below what must be the minimum speed for cruise control it came out of cruise control But as soon as I increased speed again the cruise control cut in again to maintain 12mph.Very scary and would have been very dangerous if I did not have the brake cut out as there was no quick way to stop the motor. In the end I had to switch the system off and back on and go into configuration to go back to target speed mode instead and continued the journey with no further issues in that mode. I don't know if it is practical but would it be possible to have an option to use the thumb throttle instead of cruise control?
Slightly bad news and may only affect a system using imperial miles. Function 7 wheel speed, 7.0 current, 7.1 average and 7.2 max display the MPH in the main field and kmph in the sub field and what ever function is selected it is displayed in the main field current speed display in all 8 display modes.
So really a big thumbs up for walk assist but cruise control has a serious bug in maintain current speed mode.
Hope that helps.
Regarding Cruise: that is very unexpected and strange but very good of you to report the bug. Have never ever stumbled on that when testing for over a week. Will be testing and trying to reproduce the problem tomorrow.
Will actually try to fix all reported bugs. So I have closed the current pull request and will send new pull request with the bug fixes.
Can not thank all enough for the constant feedback!
I recommend everyone that has installed beta 0.18.0 to disable Cruise for now and I will give updates as soon as possible. And please remember to have E-brakes when testing betas like this.
EDIT: I think I have solved all the reported bugs (LCD brightness, cruise, imperial units in sub menu 7). Am now ready to test everything. Will leave update within 24 hours.
It is implemented to work like that. If someone wants to track their average speed for instance it would always be displayed. But I take it as it is better to revert to current speed as soon as user leaves menu 7? This can definitely be changed to work differently in future versions if you and others think it is better to do so!
