Re: 2017+ usable capacity

To be clear from my notes, I can't tell if it was 29 + reserve or 28 + reserve to get 29.

Re: 2017+ usable capacity

Brand new, I think that larger battery is 29kwh down to 0% Take the one you're looking at, top it up to 100%, clear the trip and then run it down to 0. It can be heater, AC, freeway driving, regen or no, it tells you how many kwh can be counted out to get to 0%. I think I lost about 5% in my first y...

Re: Bad APIM in my 2013 FFE - what are my options?

I replaced my Sync 2 APIM in my 2012 with a Sync 3 model and I would never go back. You need a new screen since Sync 3 requires multi touch capability, but you can replace all of it for less than half that price if you're not looking for brand new parts. You can absolutely do the swap yourself as we...

Re: 2014 Focus EV vs 2016 E-golf

If the battery is good and the range is comparable, I'd say the Focus - but I know a few folks that have had eGolfs and loved them.

I'd guess fast charging might also be an option on the eGolf if that sways things at all.

Re: Long term support - keep or sell?

Second all that. Now that the line is dead the tech experience pool is going to shrink rather than grow. They'll keep selling parts for the foreseeable future but I would not count on anything else from them.

Re: Adding Extra Battery Power to FFE

A supplementary pack would operate connected in parallel. You want to get them close to the same voltage but they don't need to be exact. They will equalize as they are being used which may make your range indicator go up if the new pack is higher and starts to "charge" the original or lower if it d...

Re: Adding Extra Battery Power to FFE

The onboard charger monitors the individual cell voltages of the stock pack and has thresholds for highest max and lowest min value. If you put another pack on in parallel there's no inherent reason it couldn't charge in parallel but the onboard charger will not account for any of it's behaviors. So...

Re: Compass Zone -- FCIM buttons 7 and 9

Looking into it further, that is for sure the instructions for the folks with tiny displays or text only read outs.

Since the touch screen Sync stuff has GPS it already knows where the car is and can adjust the heading based on that as it reads out the magnetometer.
