Charging through app

Post by kaiz » Sat May 15, 2021 7:47 am

Tried to change max charging % in app to 90 or 100, but nothing happened.
VW answered to ma question:
Regarding your inquiry about maximum charging per cent in We Connect ID app, we would like to inform you that currently mentioned function is not available.
You are able to set maximum 80% from your We Connect ID app for your charging.

Also they said, that if charging locations in car is engaged, you can't start charging from app.
Take your time and walk to your car. 8-)

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 and see what happens. I would add that in the past weeks I look at the app less and less because it invariably doesnt sync with car unless I go through a procedure of unlocking and getting in the car that rather defeats the point of the app. Reinstalling the app makes no difference.
I will try as said though.

I did this successfully just yesterday. Was charging to 80% then had a change in plan for the destination so boosted it to 100%.

However, I do not know if it is related, but all of my charging locations have since vanished.

I have done it before, but I understood, that it is temporary restriction (for SW development ?).
Tried, but couldn't change the % downwards from 80% either.

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 😂
