Alright so it's been a good 2 months or so since I got my upgrade, gonna list out a few problems here:
1: When plugged in, "Estimated Finish Time" is stuck to the last time I plugged in a DC fast charger (currently stuck at Wednesday, March 30, 5:11 PM, which is the exact time I plugged into a CCS EA station). "Estimated Finish Time" only updates when I plug into a DC fast charger, and even then it only updates to the time of when I plugged in, not the finish time.
2: "Charge Level Notification" is unable to be set. Gets stuck in a loading loop, and eventually turns itself back off.
3: "Go Times" ("Departure Times" in FordPass) Doesn't seem to work.
4: When plugged in, "Energy" and "Charge type Network" both have "N/A" no matter what, even on public chargers.
Everything else functions correctly for me, however, I still for the life of me can't figure out if Preferred Charge Times functions or not.
Regarding the Preferred Charge Times and Go Times, can you confirm if these are able to be set in Sync? Specifically if you go to the Value Charge profiles screen, does it show anything? Can Go Times be adjusted?
These two features specifically require an updated calibration level on the TCU's. Without it, everything else will work except for these two. It's something that should already be done on the official units installed by your dealer, but it isn't unheard of for this to be missed. I've seen at least one or two reports of people having to go back to the dealer for this.
Likewise, if you have access to ForScan you can get the calibration level that way and be 100% sure.
That said, it was noted in the CSP that the Preferred Charge Time function was going to be missing for Focus BEVs until sometime this summer, but finding out the calibration level (or determining the functionality in Sync) will rule that out as a possible culprit.
2) Charge Level Notification is something that I think is still being dealt with on Ford's end. Myself and some other C-Max owners have the same issue where it won't set.
4) Wild guess but an educated one, this may very well be data that won't ever be available for us, at least the Charge Network field. Mainly because our vehicles (both the Focus BEV and C-Max and Fusion Energi/PHEVs) don't have the ability to communicate with the EVSE and get info about it. Likely this is specific to newer models like the Mach E and F-150 Lightning which can do that. Hard to say what Ford plans to do here, but I can at least confirm this is something missing for others as well.
