Re: Hands free

I think the ‘ok’ button on the steering wheel will do that

Osprey chargers

I noticed some Osprey chargers (formerly known as Engenie) appearing in the WeConnectID map when filtering for WeCharge, so I emailed them to check - they replied confirming that they do accept the WeCharge card.

Re: Charging ID3

A 13A charging cable should give 3kW, which will add about 5% per hour. If you charge for 7 hours overnight that should refill just over 1/3 of battery capacity, say from 45% to 80%, good for 60-70 miles.

Re: We Change

I have one, but I haven’t used it yet. There aren’t many Ionity chargers in the UK, and several of them are currently free to anyone, no need to use a card at all - but these are typically throttled to around 35kw max. (I have used the chargers at Baldock and Boxworth near Cambridge, and I understan...

Re: Software Update 3rd Oct

The main route to report bugs to VW is via the “Volkswagen ID. first movers club” private Facebook group: not the ideal scheme for bug reports.
