I've only done it twice. And never bottom to top all at once. But with outside temps in the 60's I get this:

I have a graph that I saved as .jpg but I can't get it to post here. Any ideas?

Hi everyone , I just pick up my new 2020 bolt on Tuesday , and boy am I having fun, I haven't been this excited about a car since my first car. I don't care what they say about the Tesla this car hits my pleasure spot as I go zipping on by the gas stations. I live in Plattsburgh Ny and there no DC chargers here for me to test fast charging except Tesla of course, just level 2 ,and my closes DC charger is in Burlington vt, or Albany Ny. So it looks like i have a road trip to try, anybody in my area with an EV what to go.?

In my 2017 you could press the fan speed button repeatedly and the speed would decrease .... 3, 2, 1, 0 with zero being off.

In the 2020 the fan speed stops at 1.
There is no way to turn off the fan via button.
Only touch screen.
I do not view this as an improvement. Why????

I view this as an improvement on my 2019 (after three years of my 2017).

Now I can just keep pushing the button to get down to 1 and not accidentally turn off the Climate Control, which is safer while I am driving.

In the moderate winters in Los Angeles, I frequently heat the seats, push the HEAT butoon to turn off the heat, push the AUTO button twice to get fresh outside air and push the fan speed down to 2 or 1.

When I want to turn the Climate Control completely OFF, there is a separate control for that

I am hoping to pick up an Oasis Blue 2020 Bolt Premier before the end of the month.
I read the post of the new owner near Plattsburgh, NY with interest. We live west of Philadelphia, PA. I told my wife that the first long road trip with the car will probably be a Labor Day ( her birthday ) long weekend trip to Montreal. The hotel ,where we usually stay on the south shore of the St. Laurence river, has free parking, and a free ( for hotel guests ) Level 2 charger in the parking lot. It is also located about 900 yards/meters from the nearest Metro stop, if we do not want to drive into the city. There is a Holiday Inn Express in Saugerties, NY, that also has a Level 2 Guest charger in the parking lot. We can stay there on the first night, and charge while we sleep.
So, we will be zipping past Plattsburgh, NY, unless we stop at the Friendly's for lunch.

I never purchase protection plans, I checked that box, and I completed the survey and gave them my email address for the $5 Amazon cash card.

AND: that’s “they’re” not there!
