OnStar targeted advertising

Ok... Can't attach a file, can't delete the post. Bear with me, it's amusing.

Re: Cheap Ebay Chargers 32/40 amp

Man, a beefy charger like that sure would be nice, even for the current Bolt, the 10Kw CCS are almost pointless. When are the cheap eBay 10kw CCS units coming out?

Re: Hello from ChargePoint!

Hey Chargepoint! When are you guys gonna get the Delta AC Mini's certified for your network? I have four of them screwed to a wall, RFID enabled, powered and signed in and on WiFi in Los Angeles and all I need to do is enter the OCPP server addresses and credentials.

Re: Cheap Ebay Chargers 32/40 amp

I don't own a Tesla, so I don't actively seek out destination chargers, but I have only seen two of them in the wild where there were no J plugs too. At the end of the day, I'm not a big fan of the non standard connector. I get why Tesla does it, and that's fine, but they all ship with J1772 to Tesl...

GoFundMe-ing a fast charger?

How dumb / possible would it be to do something like a GoFundMe to get fast chargers put in places that people need them? Like... Utah, or bigger units in northern California? Or between LA and west? Would a charging company come out and do a matching fund?

Re: EVgo DC chargers were horrible until ...

I have to say, since I started this thread, the EvGo fast chargers are certainly better than they were. Were they as reasonable as they are now, I probably wouldn't have made such a stink. Here's hoping they keep moving in the right direction.

Re: Cheap Ebay Chargers 32/40 amp

So has anybody definitively determined if you can simply CHOP THE TESLA PLUG off the UMC and install a J1772 plug? The TeslaTap is too small to have any intelligent circuitry in there, I'll bet $6 it just changes the shape of the plug, but does anybody have any proof to put in this pudding?

Re: Remote Unlock Using the Chevy App--Know How to Use It

Yeah, also, if the FOB is in the car, it won't remote start either. Worst most pressing problem in our society: Not being able to remote start the AC in the car when the valet leaves the keys on the seat. The humanity!

Re: Attached Garage Air Conditioner

Only obvious tips... CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN! Don't let sand, dirt, etc get in the lines, make sure the connections / flares are nice, shiny and clean, and soapy-water test everything right after you release the refrigerant! And have two good adjustable wrenches handy to tighten any leaks out - One for th...
