Re: How much will my battery degrade after two years of charging to 100% almost every night?

Thank you Sean. So you are not convinced that we all have the same 60KWh capacity when new? I have seen posted Torque Pro logs from other people, that they had taken when the Bolt was brand new, and a few were over 60 kWh, most were in the 57-59.x kWh range. It apparently does vary, by up to severa...

Re: Chevy free Basic APP through Onstar no longer free.

Re: Waze now available on CarPlay

...after looking around a bit, I think I am wrong, it appears Waze may use time and location to determine whether it is Day or Night, not the phone's light sensor. That doesn't seem right to me. It would mean that it wouldn't auto-switch under circumstances like going through tunnels or in dark sto...

Re: Waze now available on CarPlay

Go to Settings -> Display and map and change Mode to "Auto" - that will enable Waze to toggle between Day and Night mode based on the color of the air... :-) That's a great tip and I really appreciate it, but it was already set to "Auto" ????? Actually...after looking around a b...

Re: Remote Link -- Useless with OnStar Basic Plan?

Update: 5/14/18: the "My Charging & Efficiency Status" on the https://my.chevrolet.com/myvehicle website is now working.
I wonder if this is related to my dealer visit last week to get the recall/software update(s)?

Then depending on the Temp setting, the car is either actively heating or cooling. The Heat or A/C function could be off, and cool or hot air could still be exiting the vents as the...
