    Charging near Glacier NP?

    As much as I love road trips in a Tesla, last summer we left the Tesla at home when we spent a week in Glacier. There are charging options, but none are superchargers and I didn't want to spend any extra time away from the park activities dealing with L2 charging. Last summer was quiet too, so...

    I-5 Grants Pass, OR to Springfield, OR ABRP says not a valid route

    I wonder if you should check your ABRP settings for reference consumption, speed, extra weight, etc. That doesn't sound like too difficult of a gap to cover in a 75D. It is the longest remaining gap on I-5, but I've never come close to not being able to cover it on many trips through that area.

    California Supercharger Locations FAQ

    Bruce, great work on this! Very informative. The one item I would suggest is adding some information about using PlugShare to check-in and share information about different locations. I used to find a lot of great information about locations in areas that I don't normally visit from regular...

    Supercharger - Monterey, CA (Del Monte Center, LIVE 10 Aug 2017, 10 V2 stalls)

    I've been through here several times in the past couple of months and it has been consistently busy. But, I have only once waited 10 minutes to get a stall. It feels like it is operating at just below capacity, so I wouldn't worry about being able to charge. Plenty of good places to eat while...

    Tesyota? Is that a thing? What do you make of this report that there could be a partnership with Tesla and Toyota?

    The second generation Toyota RAV4 EV (2012-1014) was a joint project between Toyota and Tesla with the battery and powertrain produced by Tesla and shipped to Toyota for assembly in Michigan. It was strictly a "compliance" car sold in California.

    Preventive eMMC replacement on MCU1

    Yes, that’s what they told me to prepare for when they started the work but it ended up being done by the end of the day. They didn’t upgrade the firmware to the current version when they finished but that was easy to do at home. It seems like the firmware part of the eMMC replacement process is...

    Preventive eMMC replacement on MCU1

    I made an appointment with the service center to get the eMMC replaced. They delayed the appointment after I scheduled it due to not having the part in stock. The appointment was rescheduled for yesterday and the work was completed by the end of the day. My service invoice shows that they...
