Re: Controlling Music On USB Memory Stick

Agreed, it's awful. You have to take your eyes off the road for far too long to get to any meaningful screen from which you can then select your song. My car has the obnoxious habit of reverting to Sam Cooke, simply because it is the first song when sorted alphabetically by song title. I mean, I lik...

Re: Tiny Sunvisors

I've read that 1) GM has fixed this in newer cars and 2) the new visors fit on the older Bolts. Maybe just go to your Chevy dealer and buy a sunvisor for a 2019 Bolt?

Re: Sticky charger

WD-40 is perfectly fine. In fact, you can spray it right on the contacts, and it will give you a cleaner connection.

I use it regularly on the connectors on my Torqeedo. They have small pins which are exposed to moist air (sitting on a boat).

Re: Controlling Music On USB Memory Stick

If you browse by folder, you can have it play the songs in that folder either in order or at random. But i have yet to figure out how to get it to go to the next folder when it is done.

Re: Cost of charging?

Taking your numbers at face value: To charge at L2, you need roughly 60/.94 = 63.8 kWh To charge at L2, you need roughly 60/.88 = 68.2 kWh The difference is 4.4kWh, or $0.53 at $0.12/kWh. Even charging fully twice a week (that's a lot of driving!), it's $1.06/wk or $55.12/year. It would still take 9...

Re: speed limiter

Actually, this sounds like the opposite of cruise control. With CC, you set a minimum speed and then can go faster (e.g. to pass) by pressing the accelerator. From the link, it sounds like the intent here is to set an upper bound on your speed. That said, I think CC + 'L' gear will work for the OP's...

Re: First Use of JDapter Stub for Tesla Destination Charger to Chevy Bolt

I'm still waiting for Tesla to open their supercharging network to all EVs, and sell adaptors for CCS and CHAdeMO :lol: I'm not holding my breath. Tesla SuperChargers have a tendency to be full, because so many Teslas have free (or free up to a limit) SuperCharging, so their owners tend to use them...

Re: First Use of JDapter Stub for Tesla Destination Charger to Chevy Bolt

What about an affordable adaptor for CHAdeMO to CCS? Any experience? There isn't enough of a market to develop this, even if it could be produced affordably once designed. Most new chargers have both CHAdeMO and CCS, so there is no need for an adaptor. I'm still waiting for Tesla to open their supe...

Re: Florida Bolt Owners.

I have approached EVGO and there answer is we are adding new station constantly but could not confirm when or where. My recommendation? Use this form to contact EVGo. They are actively seeking suggestions for locations. So tell them. Even better would be if multiple Florida Bolt owners agreed on go...
