I know where not at winter yet but this afternoon got me thinking about the departure times option in the app, does the car use the outside temperature to calculate how long is required?

Also in the winter what temperature would you set the departure time to? I’m a little worried about the battery be drained but this is a feature I’d like to use.

Thanks in advance and hopefully we won’t need this option for a while

Do you mean in terms of charging, in terms of heating the cabin, or both?

It’s troublesome for many with charging.

I just do that manually in the app, I don’t use any of the in-car timers, sorry.

Same as Scott I do it manually, my routine is not that precise so when I did try it out the car had heated and defrosted as requested but I then didn't leave for another 30 minutes..
