Re: Crossing the mountains

Just back from crossing Mt Hotham
Harrietville to Omeo 86km 11kwh @125/km. Omeo Motel via granny cord.....official charging planned.
Omeo to Harrietville 86km 9kwh @ 104/km

It’s definitely a town and mountain car (slow average speeds) and copes with fast open roads.

Re: OTA Update v10.2

Well today’s little sojourn to Echuca resulted in finding the mapping error is now resolved by legible speed signs overriding mapping speed errors......sooo much better now and the most significant improvement to me in my environment.

Re: OTA Update v10.2

I’m just wondering where the mapping errors (speeds) come from.......maybe it’s that autopilot simply makes the errors obvious now.

Re: OTA Update v10.2

After 40.4 speed recognition works pretty well but maybe the old(?) de restriction sign recognition is patchy because it worked for Andy (Teslander) but not when I went past one ......they do seem to be pretty rare now.
Mapping errors remain beyond major highways.

Re: OTA Update v10.2

Yeah the de restrictions signs are few and far between now that I come to think of it. Resting your foot on the accelerator is something I recommend on the connecting roads and minor highways because the mapping errors can cause a situation in traffic. I don’t know who is responsible for overseeing ...

Re: OTA Update v10.2

Well 40.4 means speed signs show up and will mean you don’t exceed it, but it doesn’t recognise the diagonal DE-restriction sign that sometimes takes the place of the speed sign. Also, the problem of strong regen occurring inappropriately due to map errors (phantom towns/limits) still exists unfortu...

Music streaming

Is the iPhone preferred equipment for seamless streaming?
My M3 premium connectivity seems to not integrate with my Pixel 4 - needing music to be re-selected each time I get back in.
I certainly hope one of the frequent updates finally fixes the frustration.

Re: New EV Charge Stations For North West Victoria

So yes, slower charging means more time in the town, where do they draw the line? Why don't they just install 7 kW chargers then? Or 15A power points? 25 kW is too slow to be useful on a road trip. When people ask "can I go from Melbourne to Mildura in an EV as easily as a petrol car?" the answer w...

Re: EV Charging Space Etiquette

Unfortunately in the country you’ll see large SUVs that will park at pub recharging bays, such as the Tesla Supercharger at Ovens,
on the far side of the large car park of the small hotel.
EVs threaten their manliness apparently.

Over the 18,000 Kms of country based travelling, I’ve come to the conclusion that the image processing takes around 0.6 sec which is noticeable when identified traffic/pedestrians etc show up compared to actual position.
