I’m going to go out on a limb and say that mb will never bring it back since it seems that someone at Daimler corporate does not like smart or electric cars.

Also, I think that the modem in the car is 2g, and it is being phased out by all the major cell carriers.

I would say that your bet if you wanted some features similar to vehicle homepage,

Although they are investing, the EQC is frankly not a very good vehicle. A 2016 Tesla model X 75d can get about 417 km nedc range. The 2020 EQC only can get 450 km (with a 5kwh bigger battery, smaller vehicle, and with 4 years of tech improvements).

It also charges significantly slower on level 2, is slower, and has less advanced driver assists.

Sorry if I came off as argumentative.

The app is never coming back. The ED was saddled with a dying technology (2g radios). Further, MB really only guaranteed the app would work for 3 years so they did make it clear it wouldn't be around forever.

funny thing is the B class MB model has a similar page my login used to work there but data was all wrong.
Then that also stopped.
modem upgrade or upgrade to wifi should be possible. we could tether car to our phones 4g connection and get the soc and eco levels as before.
They just need to open source it

I use Fleet Carma's ODBII (www.fleetcarma.com) - it's excellent, provides all the info I need to populate the app I use called MyEVApp. Fleet Carma requires that you apply for the ODBII, it's free and the access to the data is also free. They'd rather provide fleet data than individual data but they're also looking for personal data to determine the future needs of electricity. I've been using it now for over a year, absolutely couldn't live without it. There's no guarantee that they'll accept you but if you beg the right way, then you're in.

Cheers.

It's closed source hardware and software. Worse, it uses 2G radios. I'm sure someone could probably figure out how to reverse-engineer/hack the system to work through other means, but MB has made it clear that they have no interest in any further support.

I have been using fleetcarma also for more than a year, it gives me visibility I would not have otherwise, and trip info etc.
Very good and free
They also pay me monthly for the data they want.
