Re: Real Time Look at Accessory Power Consumption

Well, the answer is yes, you can display these accessory gauges while driving in My View. I like this car even more, getting off my lazy behind and finally exploring the menus. I believe I still have just scratched the surface of this car's capabilities. This view shows, actively, real time while dr...

Re: Main Display Blank

No, I didn't contact the dealer. I was going to call my salesman and I'm sure they would have been glad to take a look at it or flash the most recent version. It did solve itself, and the problem that had surfaced just before that with the Bluetooth Stereo not appearing in the steering column menu a...

Loving my FFE!

It means jam your foot down on the accelerator as hard as you can from a standing start. ;)

Real Time Look at Accessory Power Consumption

I'll copy and paste something I put in another Forum. Thanks to Jeff A and a couple of threads lately, I finally did what I've been intending to do for 6 weeks, play with the many options of the displays. Specifically I had wished there was a way to see what was going on and using energy other than ...

Re: Is the heater/defroster a range killer?

We started discussing this in another thread, possibly even different forum. There is surfacing a noticeable reduction in range, and some of that even appears unavoidable as it may be going for conditioning the battery within a certain temperature range, as even if I kill the climate I still seem to...

Re: 2013 Tuxedo Black now in action - first 24 hours:

Yes I'm keeping my small Saturn SUV Vue, it's a 2002 model 4 cyl, all paid for and low insurance. In fact I need to move it around and drive it today for an errand just to keep it viable. If I need a long trip out of state or to haul a Christmas Tree or other things around I still want this availabl...

Re: Winter conditions.

Rw - Pretty much this car is perfect for me because I will drive 18-20000 commuter miles every year. Saving $2500.00 per year in gasoline cost make most issues with this car very minor... I guess there isn't a "like" button here, but I agree as a commuting car this is hard to beat, and a very well ...

Re: Main Display Blank

Thanks for the reminder about Sync updates. My daughter mentioned that some time ago with her Fiesta and it helped with some issues. In the meantime, look what showed up yesterday evening going out to grocery shop. The Ford emblem and everything reappeared. http://i917.photobucket.com/albums/ad15/RW...

Re: Missing trips on My Ford Mobile

Friday I got a text congratulating me on going over 5,000 miles on the Focus. In fact I've just gone over 1,500. I left my car at the Richmond, VA airport (RIC) while taking a trip to Michigan for a few days. I started getting texts one an hour to plug in the car "Ford Focus Electric has limited per...
