I haven’t tried yet, from what I read elsewhere there was a We Charge issue this week that stopped it working with some partners (including Osprey)

This is such a minefield!
Good news for me is my home Podpoint is working now, EDF missed out an attachment when they connected the lead in the meter box. The Podpoint engineer that visited was great and fixed it straight away. 😊

Your dealer was feeling generous giving you a granny lead - they're £185 :-)

I did my first "test" public charge at one of the Tesco 7kW Pod Point chargers, I have a 50kW Osprey not too far away which I will be using to burn through some of the £500 credit
Hello Scott, I too traded in my Leaf for an ID3 Life few days ago, have Octopus Go, PodPoint and as you guys am quite disappointed not to be able to schedule the charge (VW I hope you are making notes).

I wish to thank you for all the useful info you shared on this thread so far. I will look into the Agile option.
May I please check what is the £500 credit you guys mention here? Wish to check if I am eligible. Thank you in advance :)
Leaf since May 2018, ID3 Life since Dec. 2020

@miki, the £500/2000kWh credit is a 12 month VW offer for charging at some public chargers (mostly but not entirely Ionity ones). Look on the WeConnectID app at the We Charge section in your profile. You can apply there but I don’t know whether it’s a deal that has ended now. If you can’t get it to work it’s definitely worth asking your dealer.

I have a Zappi home charger and the app that manages it has “Timed” setting, what I don’t have however is an off peak tariff option from my supplier! :)
I’m planning on phoning Octopus tomorrow to start down that route.

I’m with Octopus on a 12-month fixed rate which is not that brilliant as I haven’t got a Smart meter yet.
I’ve applied for one though, then hopefully I can go for the Agile or Go tariffs.

Timed charging is supported from the 2.0 software onwards, we will all have it once the general rollout of 2.1 happens in Q1.

The £500 credit is only for owners of the 1st Edition.

we have off peak electric which we used on the the BMW i3. just had to modify my 7kw EVSE by adding a £12 timer from amazon, tried it last night worked a treat. ID3 blinks red for a minute when you insert the plug with no Control Pilot but then happily goes to sleep and wakes up when the EVSE fires up at midnight. will do until we get the software update.

Very interesting, what is the name of the product?
I’ve had a notification from VW about the software upgrade as follows:
Before 2020 comes to a close, we would like to keep you updated about the promised ID‌.‌Software update for your ID.3, which we are currently anticipating will be available from the first quarter of 2021.

As soon as the software update is available, we will be back in touch and your Retailer will arrange an appointment at a convenient time to have the update carried out. This update will need to be carried out at a Volkswagen Retailer. We are currently anticipating that the update will be available February/March.

Enhancements
In addition to the promised App Connect (across all ID.3 trim levels) and the augmented reality Head-up-Display (on Tech, Max and Tour trims), the ID‌.‌Software update will also provide your ID.3 with these additional functions:

Charging
The automated introduction of charging stops in the navigation using more than 85,000 charging points across Europe. Plus the capability to send charging Point-of-Interest (POIs) from a smartphone to the car navigation system. What’s more, the charging timer function enables users to schedule charging in relation to the planned time of departure.

Air Conditioning
The time-controlled air conditioning system allows the vehicle to be air-conditioned according to the desired departure time.

Driver Assistance Systems
Connected Active Cruise Control (Connected ACC) allows Car-2-X, communication and situation adaption of travelling speed.

Infotainment Functions
The digital car manual enables users to find car information via speech control. Web Radio can also be used to play internet radio stations via the ID.3 infotainment system.

As part of the continuous product development, the update will also contain numerous performance improvements and software changes.

That’s talking about the 2.1 software, but timed charging (and everything else mentioned in that email) is also in 2.0 which workshops and the factory can install now.
