I noticed this as well, and it is very annoying particularly because it is a bit of a time-consuming process to delete the messages in FordPass. It would be really nice if one could check/highlight a number of messages and do a single delete for the bunch.KP19 wrote: ↑Thu Jul 14, 2022 4:13 pm So I've been doing a lot of driving lately, and thus a lot of DC fast charging. I've come across another, but annoying, issue with the FordPass app and DC fast charging. Basically, if I decide to DC fast charge past 80 percent, I'll get a "Reached Desired Charge Level" message for every percent past 80%. I have no clue as to why this occurs, but it gets annoying quickly having to open each message to mark it as read.
I understand that usually 80% is a basic target for fast charging, but it all depends on just how fast the charging is going. Here in Canada, unless a DCFC unit is free to use (and we do have some still!), the charge is by the minute, not by the kWh, so when the car starts slowing down the charge, the energy cost goes up.
One day, I'm going to plot this on a graph for a better look, but at one point, all the DCFCs that I would use never provided more than about 42-43 kW, and my FFE would take that rate up until about 90-92% before ramping down. When more units came online capable of delivering 52-53 kW (which seems to be about the maximum my FFE can take at all), it begins to ramp down at about 87-88%.
Since the charger is delivering the same energy level beyond 80%, there is no reason to stop at that point, and the messages in FordPass start.
