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...

Apple Car Play Navigation

I tried connecting my iPhone 6 to the Bolt for the first time the other day, wanting to try out the navigation function. Although I didn't go much further than watching the map on the dash screen, (using the iPhone's native mapping app) it appears like it'll work well. I laid the phone on the dash, ...

Re: Infotainment dead!

Jim,
The Hard Reset is done by pressing the "Home" and "FF" buttons next to the volume control, is that right?

Infotainment dead!

2017, 17,000 miles: drove about 8 miles to an appointment, returned to the car an hour later, pressed the 'Go' button. The car started up as usual, driver's display working, but the infotainment screen was dead. Did the usual; shut down the car and restarted, pressed buttons aimlessly, said a few cu...
