Re: USB ports

Purchase one of those cigarette lighter accessories that provides higher capacity USB ports and plug it in under the front dash. That’s what I did, in addition to making Apple Carplay wireless, so I could charge my iPhone while running the Uber Driver app and Waze at the same time. Thanks to SparkE ...

The best I have been able to achieve at EA is 50KWh dowload.

Re: Buyback Process

I'm still waiting. https://www.chevybolt.org/threads/repurchase-timeline-survey.41524/ was started and I was helpfully added to the table w/o asking. TIL that WendyB in So Cal started 2 days after me and is already done. I'm in Nor Cal. Don't know if it's just by luck or because of her newer vehicl...

Re: Chevrolet/GM update on new battery software package

Am I mssing something? Is this any different than simply setting "Hilltop reserve" (for older Bolts) or setting max SoC to 80% on newer Bolts? Well, I *suppose* that it does have some diagnostic features that will warn if it detects bad cell(s) ... At a minimum, it eliminates your ability...

Re: EVgo isn't so bad anymore. In fact they are now one of the least expensive

Re: Buyback Process

Thanks I will check over there too.

What replacement vehicle will you buy? An EV?

I just can't let go of my Bolt EV without at a minimum a great deal to get an EUV, which of course is not going to happen!

I surveyed the market in mid-2019 and the Bolt EV was still the go-to EV for me!

Re: Really want a Bolt - Tell me about yours

Check out the inexpensive Chinese VHF/UHF dual band Ham radio HTs. For $30-$150 depending on quality, function, and features, you can get back on the air and work through hill-top "repeaters" some of which are internet-linked and have lots of fun talking around your area. And the newer dig...

Re: How Much I Paid for My Bolt

Look at the non-Chevy Dealer used market and if you can find one with a Michigan manufactured battery (like mine 2019), instead of manufactured in South Korea, snap it up!

We were added to the recall in August, but I am not aware of any fires that occurred in a Michigan battery.
