Re: Question: Ever been ICE'd?

Well, this isn't "ICEd" - it's worse. The parking garages at SFO (San Francisco airport) have quite a few EV charging spots. They are *always* taken, by EVs that are either fully charged, or NOT PLUGGED IN. I complain every time I got to SFO, but nothing has been changed. (My guess is tha...

Re: 299 miles after 110v charging today

When did you have the updates done? Have you driven much since then? Many have noticed (myself included) that it takes a while for the car to re-learn your efficiency.

I no longer see an “add inline image” option.

I've never used that features, I have always used IMGUR to host my pictures and linked to them here. You could try that method - it's pretty easy and it's free.

Re: Extending battery life

OK. So we should continue without recharging until it is perhaps down to 25% or less, then recharge to 75% or so. The only exception would be if we are planning a long trip for the next day. Also, try to keep the garage as cool as possible but above freezing. Doable. Thanks for the info. The lectur...

Re: LKA keeps yelling at me

I don't recall seeing that either, which is why the sudden change in behavior was so unexpected. I'm curious if anyone else who has had the updates has noticed the change.

Re: LKA keeps yelling at me

It used to do that for me, too. Before the update. Now it doesn't pong as much, but alarms much sooner. Have you had the recall software updates applied?

Re: Cheap Ebay Chargers 32/40 amp

Like paper, of course. And gunpowder. All American technology. Lol! I was referring to slightly more modern technologies, though. Like space travel, supercomputers, and airplanes. Also, I was very careful to say "most" and not "all". So, nice try. It was amusing though. Taking a...

LKA keeps yelling at me

Since the recent batch of software updates, it seems that LKA has gotten more naggy and less aggressive. For example, suppose there is a vehicle stopped halfway in the shoulder and I cross the line to get around them. It used to be that LKA would jerk the wheel hard to keep me in the lane and I'd ha...

Re: Cheap Ebay Chargers 32/40 amp

The Chinese put people in orbit, have more supercomputers than the US and build the wings that hold up Airbuses and Boeings. Time to put to rest the notion that if it is from China it is junk, junk knows no boundaries. Yes, all very true. Although a lot of the Chinese accomplishments were made poss...
