You don't know that. It is obvious that Polestar will have additional functionality within the system - it might already be sending information to Polestar when it is charging (for example) or they will introduce it in an OTA update that is released when the app is released. We just don't know.How so? The app will not transmit data while the car is sleeping and cannot wake it up.
Seb, in this thread, has pointed out that the app stops sending data when the car sleeps and he can't wake it up. It's likely that the official app will have access to lower level functions to wake the car so it can pull data or control it while it's sleeping, but that functionality probably won't be made available to Play store apps since a bug in some music app could kill the 12v.You don't know that.

Once the app is released then it will get reverse engineered as they always do and that additional functionality will be available to others.
It's already useful - after getting my car back (dealer repairing their piss poor prep work), it works well for monitoring the charge level. I've ran it a few times and although the app says something like 4.2342348 as the charging parameter, multiplied by 10 it is pretty accurate to the charger rate (within 2-3%) - so giving for some overheads getting syphoned off by the rest of the car it seems to be giving a true picture of the amount of KWhs going into the batteryOk, here is the repository.

I’ve got the same but was not sure if this was a feature or not. I appear to have to re-scan the qr code to get the info downloaded after the car has gone to sleep.Another lack of update to report unfortuantely. Just been out to do some errands which meant the car was stopped and left four times while I was out and the update time is still from yesterday morning when I last rebooted the system. The app was open when I first started the car as well.
