Re: Set time zone on clock?

FWIW: my '17 Bolt changes from Standard to DST and back with no intervention from me. However! It doesn't seem to do it immediately, dunno if it takes multiple "starts" or just a time delay. My cell phone was not connected via a cable, but was in my pocket, and I don't have a subscription ...

XM not working, AM is OK

Yesterday, I got in the car and when the radio booted up, attempted to select XM (radio had been on AM). The "Sirius XM" displayed, along with the channel name and the name of the current selection, but just momentarily, then "No Signal". I could return to AM, but when again sele...

Re: Teslas charged w/diesel generators

The biggest point to me is that there are so many unsold M3s sitting on the lots. It seems to me that the "maintenance" charging could be done with the [included] 120 volt charging cable and some extension cords. When 'our' Chevy Bolts are selling at less than 2000/month, I don't see where...

Re: Clipper Creek HC-40 broken?

Update: CC tech wanted me to reinstall the CC and count the flashes of the 'failure' lights. Upon reporting the number (4), he said he'd have a replacement on the way. It arrived a few days later; I had to wait a few more days for the extreme cold to leave and give us a day above 40 degrees. Swapped...

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

Leaf drivers who wanted to use an Android app were advised to buy a cheap Android smart phone or tablet at WalMart or wherever. Activation was not necessary, I'd think this app would be the same.

Re: Clipper Creek HC-40 broken?

Thanks for those links! I see at least one or two things to check after I reinstall the CC.

Lotsa reading there!

Clipper Creek HC-40 broken?

For the 4 years of Leaf ownership, I used a Schneider EVSE; when I got the Bolt in November of 2017, I upgraded to the CC HC-40, just to get a bit faster charging. Not that I needed it, but... Anyway, it's been working fine for about a year, but recently has developed a "sometimes" problem...

Re: Apple Car Play Navigation

I've used the iPhone to navigate to several places, a couple of which were unfamiliar to me. The method I used was to hold the "talk" button until I heard the "ding", then say, "navigate to [address]". It would then do voice turn-by-turn. If a business is right on the r...

Re: Apple Car Play Navigation

I'll try that, but will have to remove my sunglasses that are stored there. :-) Tried navigating this afternoon: it showed the map just fine, with the preferred route in bold, along with 2 alternates. It did NOT give me any voice turn-by-turn directions, which was a bit disappointing. I probably nee...
