Re: EA: Give 'em hell (that's what they want)

Pretty disappointing considering their nameplate and all the hype around higher EA charger kW ratings. -- It feels like VW is pushing a proprietary DCFC network out primarily for their own cars .. similar to the way Tesla does. (10/23/2021update) .. After a recent 2000 mile trip with my 2020 Bolt E...

Re: My Chevrolet app quit working.

FYI: I tried uninstalling and re-installing the 'My Chevrolet' app ..
and now it works just fine again on my Android 7 phone.

Re: My Chevrolet app quit working.

Android 7 is ancient. Well .. so am I and thankfully everything still works. :P .. I'm on a fixed income, am not addicted to my phone like so many of my friends are and have never had a security issue b/c I don't expect wireless phones to be secure. Every other EV related app I have works .. Chevro...

My Chevrolet app quit working.

Hello, About 2 weeks ago my Android 7.0 cell phone started hanging on the "find new roads" screen when I try to use the app to lock doors, check range etc .. I called Chevrolet and they said they'd been updating the app for two months & it now requires Android 9.0 or newer OS .. Lots o...

Re: Charging At Home

I would add that the 2022 Bolt EUV is apparently capable of 11.5 kW (48A 240VAC) level 2 charging .. That would require a 60A 240VAC circuit.

Re: Charging/Range

No level 2 charging at home or work and a 146 mile commute? .. It's asking a lot from level 1 charging only. With a little planning and the Plugshare app you should be able to work out a routine using public DCFC or Level 2 chargers .. For most EV drivers never having to go to a gas station again is...

Re: free charging at Electrify America

Thanks for the heads up cwerdna! ..

Went to the new EA site near me and it was indeed free (no app, CC needed) today on Earth Day!
The EA charge rate [36kw] was still pretty slow compared to the free (every day) EVgo site near me [46kw].

Re: Wheel Spacers

I like the idea but if the stock wheel studs needed to be cut I wouldn't do it.

It would probably make the guide lines in the backup camera screen useless as well.

Re: Where is the charge limit coming from (Bolt/Charger/AC ckt) ?

OK .. Charging station and the car are capable of 32A - 7.2kW @ 240V .. Circuit breaker is 50 Amp, 240V .. Have you confirmed that the wires used in that circuit are #6 gauge copper conductors? (as they should be) If they are not .. say #10 or #12 gauge copper conductors the charging station would p...

Re: How do you disengage the cruise control in single pedal L mode?

I use the "cancel" button on the steering wheel more often, but will use either method. I have found that it's easy to reach with my thumb without looking. It is the closest to the outside of the wheel. Pressing the brake pedal also cancels cruise control, but I rarely use that method wit...
