Heading to London tomorrow, 300+ mile round trip. Set my car to charge to 100% just a few minutes before I plan on leaving.

Is this a mistake? Will it work? Should I just charge it normally for peace of mind?

No it doesn't work. But I fear my response may be too late given the time you posted.

Different opinions on this topic. For me the scheduled charging via the infotainment system or / app works 80% of the time. It charges to the lvel I set on the app. 80%, 90% or 100% of battery However the 20% it doesn’t work is a bummer… and Sod’s Law means it happens when I really need it. So I agree with the its ‘unreliable’ sentiment expressed by G43FAN and others.

I compare to my Mini on the same charger…where it works flawlessly every time and the App tells me where it is going to finish and when it finishes or if something goes wrong (eg charge interrupted for whatever ).

VW need to stop facing around with new bells and whistles with the software and just fix the basics… It is like having an ICE that some mornings will start and others not… Rant over.

Well, it did work, but didn't quite reach 100% by the time I set, I think it was 93% or something.

I think in the future I'll just charge to 100% the night before.

Also, when I got back I plugged in at home and told it to charge to 80% but my scheduled charge 100% setting seemed to override it, even though it was set to a specific day!

Don't think of it as a schedule, think of it as a random event creation tool..

Wil the car charge overnight - Possibly but probably not
Will the SoC match what was set in the tool - Possibly but probably not
Will having a schedule to charge Monday 00:30 - 04:30 cause some random event at any other time of the week. Almost Definetly.
