Connecting iPhone app

I just received my OVMS box and configured it for my e-Nero. That part works fine, but I have trouble getting the iPhone app working.

I understand that I have to fill in some information in ‘settings’ of the phone first, but it is rather confusing to me what information is to be filled in where. I couldn’t find any instructions and the different fields here and in the app use other names than those used in the online settings at openvehicles.com. It would be helpful if the same thing was called by the same name everywhere.

1. In the settings on my phone I have to fill in the server. It say now ‘tmc.openvihicles.com’, but I had to make an account at dexters-web.de. What is the correct server address here?

2. What is the correct port number that should be used?

3. Then the head ‘www.openvihicles.com’ (settings) it asks for ‘username’ and ‘password’. Rather confusing: the un/pw of openvihicles.com, the main account on dexters-web or the cars account on dexters-web?

There are four fields to fill in when entering a new car, but since the names ‘vehicle ID’ and ‘Vihicle label’ are different from the field names in dexters-web online, I don’t know what to use where.

Sorry if I missed any instructions that describe this. I’ve looked ‘everywhere’ and tried many options but gave up. There are too many possibilities.
Help would be very much appreciated.

And maybe someone can make an instruction somewhere so other users can find the right way to do this?

You should use the same

You should use the same settings as you entered into the vehicle module itself.

If you are using Dexter's EU server, the name is


Leave port at default (6867).

In www.openvehicles.com section you should put in the username and password for the server you are using (in your case Dexter's web).

Then in the App, Settings/New you enter:

Vehicle ID: The vehicle ID you put into the module
Vehicle Label: Whatever you want as the nickname of your vehicle
OVMS Server Password: The password you set in the module for the OVMS v2 server
OVMS Module Password: The password you set in the module for the module itself
