Re: Controlling volume when using smartphone Google maps with bluetooth connection

2017 Bolt Premier with Infotainment package and Galaxy S7 phone. Volume control changes the volume of each source only during operation of that source.

Re: Hey ChargePoint - what's up with the 24 kW chargers?

I've made this trip a couple of times recently. Forget about the 24kW Bosch sites. Use the EVgo sites. Faster, multiple chargers at each site, and real time status on EVgo or Plugshare. Exit Price Canyon road in Pismo Beach to use the Marigold Center charger in San Luis Obispo. Charge to 80% https:/...
