You need to install their specific wall charger too. Not a bad idea for an Airbnb and the like.

@Cherry would have loved this idea though 🤣

Re: iD3 refusing to charge on public chargers

If we experience problems it is always AC.

I suspect they get bashed about more regularly.

Re: Software 3.1

I can say that Apple Maps does, except Apple Maps is rubbish so I use Waze, which doesn't show in the HUD, nor does Google Maps - but this is on an iPhone/Carplay - can't answer for Android Auto. The AR chevrons do not work for anything other than the useless in-car SatNav - hope that changes. Than...

Re: Software 3.1

No - only if you have an Apple phone but use Google maps through Carplay. If you use Google maps through Android Auto then it all works as it should and you get directions in the driver's screen. If you use the in car nav, you get that plus ID light directions. Not sure if you have the HUD, but wou...

Re: Software 3.1

Still, this suggests they’re not slowing down with the updates which is nice. Shame they have no way of getting the updates out to existing cars.. 3.1 or 7.1 it's no good with the current update regieme I have decided that the reason for the 2.4/3.0 delay is so we skip directly to 3.1 Please leave ...

Does this involve sticking your feet out through the floor (as per The Ant Hill Mob)?
Is it only available on Max or all trims?
It does and 21 Max only I'm afraid.

Re: Brake Lights are distracting

I certainly want people behind me to know that my speed is reducing. The rate at which it reduces determines if the brake lights come on or not. It's not about "deceleration". The person behind me shouldn't care if it is caused by "B" mode, the brakes, my reverse hamster wheel*, ...

Re: Driving in Spain / France

Hi there, I live in Spain and I use my We Charge card at Ionity chargers, reliably. I also use ChargeMap in places.

Here's my post from last year which I hope will help a bit: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1185

Re: Aircon problem is back

For closure, aircon is working correctly and no hissing sounds. That is the warning sign, if you hear hissing then there’s a fault. Despite what they tell you 😀

Re: Aircon problem is back

Not exactly comforting that 😂 Correct!! They were sympathetic to our point that the petrol for the rental they gave us over that last month exceeded the cost of charging for the last 17 months by 3x, but not so sympathetic as to do anything about it :D Saying that, we did get the car for "free...

Re: Aircon problem is back

Car is now back. They did indeed replace everything, including all vents and tubing.

They informed us that they have no idea what the problem was, so had little option other than to replace it all.

Nearly a month with the dealer... fingers crossed it survives the summer.

Well for balance, I would suggest it doesn't or it isn't reliable. I tried the cardboard box test as we had a substantial size box hanging around. Approx the size of a 8 or 9 yr old child. The car just proceeded to flatten it despite beeping in protest at the obstacle.
Same experience.

Re: Only getting 3Kw on 22KW charger

Interestingly, have been back to my nearest bank of 6 22kw chargers. Have tried three, the first one did not work, the other two (plus a third in Ayr) charged at 3kw. Tonight I am getting 7kw! The whole thing is a mystery to me. And it will long continue! We have 32k km of mystery so far, loved eve...

Re: Only getting 3Kw on 22KW charger

As stated above check for locations and reduced AC charging. Regarding DC charging, check the bottom plug is removed, not as daft as it sounds, I have helped 3 people at chargers with that one. For me there are two chargers that do the “no clunk” thing, the only thing is that they don’t have an app ...

Re: Aircon problem is back

Yeh, extreme is an understatement. They have been waiting for 3-4 weeks for whatever they ordered so it doesn’t seem impossible. We’ll see when we review the report. Regarding a replacement EV, this is a helpful dealer and they tried hard to get us something, just couldn’t, and I believe them on tha...

Re: Aircon problem is back

The clock continues to tick.

Have now spent more on fuel for the free replacement car this last month than for the last 32k km of electricity!

The entire aircon system is to be replaced.

A bit pants really.
