Re: Newbie about to order?

When buying bear in mind bad news travels faster than good news on these forums. I am one of many owners enjoying a trouble free great car. Nearing 3,000 miles I had some minor issues with the original SW and the app is very basic. Bottom line though is if you make a decision based on negative posts...

Re: Summer Range - How is everyone getting on?

All good with mine. Recent touring trips left home with 272 mile range at 100%.
And even on motorways was seeing 250 actual.
Short journies at home I see 4.8 4.9 miles/kw.
Long term average risen to 4.2m/kw.
Not yet used AC . We travel witb the windows open out of choice despite additional drag.

Re: Range indicator confusion

This thread topic re range. Im used to it now and can second guess how the range goes up and down on different days. However, I did a 500 mile trip recently staying in Bristol and moved the car out of a Hotel EV parking bay and found I had managed to get a range of 520 miles at 91% charge.
Dream on 😆

Re: Range indicator confusion

Found in the menu layers so maybe not buried but agree with Conquest ID for the sake of a few digits it would be helpful and safer to have displayed it alongside the battery symbol like most phones.

Re: Error Drive system

I tend to agree with stu-evs. I will probably regret saying this but I have not had this fault and my car is often plugged in charging for more than 8 hours and often beyond 8 hours after reaching its charge setting. Does anyone know if this fault and others we see in these threads correlate with sp...

Re: Charging through app

Sorry my test took a while.
I successfully increased the charge to 90% and then back down again to 80% today whilst connected to a BP Pulse 50kw charger.
App was instant. TBH I was astonished it worked.
It was having a good day 😂

Re: Charging through app

I feel sure I have increased the percentage via the app in the past. Its likely I did it whilst getting near to 80% although at least once I remember increasing to 90% after It had sat at 80% for a few hours as a test. This would have been before my 2.1 upgrade! I will try it today from my granny an...

Are you able to display the odometer and trip meter on the driver console display at the steering wheel?

WYSIWYG ;)

Re: Granny Charging Cable

I was fortunate to get the VW cable included with the car purchase. It is currently my only means of charging and I use it frequently. Although I have nothing to compare it with I can say it is very well made and see it as a VW component. I don't believe it is hugely more expensive than any other gr...
