But 2 things he said intrigued me..
1: The "Charge Complete" notification only happens when the charge is really complete, and by that I mean, if you have Hilltop set, apparently you won't get notified that your Hilltop charge is complete, because that is not full.. Hmmm..
2: The requirements for "Charge Interrupted" involved the alarm going off. So if I didn't have the alarm go off, I wouldn't get a message about interruption?? I haven't tested this, but that means that if someone unplugs me from the wall outlet, and not from the car (and that doesn't trigger the alarm.. ???), then I wouldn't be notified that the charge was interrupted?
Luckily for me, I had forgotten to unlock the car before I headed out for lunch when I unplugged, and the alarm went off...
But still no notification... So I still met the requirements..
I’m pretty sure number 1 is not true. I have not utilized hilltop reserve in a long time, but when I did back in march or april I remember it notified me when done. Or, the converse, I would have been upset and remembered NOT being notified. That didn’t happen.
Number 2 is FOR SURE not true. I work in an office just a few feet away from my car. I can both see it and hear it. I get the “charge intereupted” message when the circuit breaker tripped one time, no car alarm, and when the voltage dips for an instant when a 1000 horsepower electric motor starts next door. Again, no car alarm.
In fact, I get the “charge interrupted” message EVERY SINGLE TIME I stop charging. Even when I am the one unplughing the car, with the remote keyfob in my pocket. Now that you mention it, maybe I don’t if I unlock the car first. It is hit or miss if I unlock the car first or unplug first. I do either probably 50/50 so never saw the pattern, but you may be right on that.
I get notified when I unplug the car first or the wall plug first. It does not matter. (You are supposed to unplug the car first.). I get a txt message within 30 seconds every time.
I have AT&T and an iPhone 7plus.
