Re: Software 3.2 & Scheduled Charging Issue

Try setting a short charge (say five minutes) followed by a short pause, then the charge proper. Some have found that's enough to wake the car.

Re: App Not Working Again

125 miles × 1.6 = 200miles. Showing "range added" would make no sense.

Re: Poor sound quality - android auto

Are you making sure the phone is on maximum volume and the sound settings on the phone are the best they can be (although you seem to have eliminated the phone)? How are the sound settings in the car?

Re: Not charging to 100%

Do you have a home location set with its own charge limit setting.

The charging error messages are just the car grumbling about the charge stopping between scheduled slots.

Is there a current sensor the wrong way round, or a redaction, or a big battery being flattened?
Why is that odd? It may not have a generation clamp fitted. Mine doesn't.

Re: Zappi always charging at 7.4kw even in eco /eco+

Whenever I set the Zappi to either Eco or Eco+ to take advantage of excess solar or nighttime tariff, the Zappi still charges at 7.4kw, even if it says eco or Eco+. In Eco , the Zappi will add grid energy to the surplus solar to reach 7.4kW. In Eco+ that's controlled in the app by the slider undern...

There are lots of options on the market if you care to look. If you're concerned about fragility then perhaps something like this in aluminium:

Re: Charging only @3.6kw

Are you scheduling charging for overnight? Some vehicles had an issue where they didnt "wake up" properly and charged at a reduced rate.

Failing that, are you sure the cable is rated for 32A and not 16A?

Re: Charging cable failed

You appreciate that the cable you bought will not be capable of 11kW charging as the VW was? It may not matter to you, of course.

Re: Charging schedule being ignored

When you're away from home, charge type changes to "immediately" for obvious reasons. Sometimes it fails to return to "preferred times" when returning to the set home location. A quick glance at the infotainment and at most two presses is all that's needed.
