    Roadster 3.0

    @tomsax - Sounds good I'll get the information to you via the form. I can't believe that I haven't done this before but I will submit the initial form again since the battery upgrade has no doubt changed things. Before the upgrade my original battery was down to 160 standard and around 200...

    Roadster 3.0

    Thanks, I got up this morning and to my dismay the OVMS was not connected! No panic on my part .... I live in Sedona where some truly wacky stuff happens tp electronics for no reason. The program actually told me it couldn't find WiFi and wanted to switch to cellular. That is way cool...

    OVMS v3.1 install

    Thank you for all your help. I was successful with the install. The unit is up and cunning like a Swiss watch. I am very sad to deactivate my version 2 because it was so amazing. Version 3 seems very interesting and I look forward to any expanded functionalities. I do miss the constant text...

    OVMS v3.1 install

    On the computer website there is a window called server..... it says: “OVSM V2 login successful, and crypto channel established. OVMS V3 server has not been started. “ It appears that there are start and stop buttons for V3 and V2 available. Should V3 be activated?

    OVMS v3.1 install

    Well its a great video. I got all the way up to 'Installing OVMS"..... went thru OVMS Network to generating the Module Network and I was trying to sign in to the box and it would not recognize the name and password of the module that I just created.

    Big Trouble for #992 I've been running the OVMSv2 ever since it was first launched with no real problem. 34 days ago I lost connection and can't get it back. No worries....I have a OVMSv3 sitting in a box. I bought it a few years back and figured I would just try that one. Plugged it into my...

    Supercharger - Las Vegas, NV (Town Square)

    Hey I've been to super chargers from MD to Seattle, Seattle to Sonoma, Sonoma to LV and back again to AZ. Bridger Ave is dismal but I charged in Kansas last summer with a tornado moving our way (yea I know ..... Not smart!). I would have been happy to be inside out of that storm. A little...

    Roadster 3.0

    That is correct! When they did my upgrade they disconnected my OVMS leaving old readings on the display. They update firmware AFTER battery installation and run diagnostics to make the PEM's new board work properly. My readings on OVMS were the same as the day I dropped if off until I had to...

    Converted to hologram couple days ago. Followed Tom's instructions and had no problem. I have much better connectivity than I did with AT&T. Thanks Stuart for help putting phone numbers in.

    Roadster on destination charging doesn't work outside of North America

    Checked the new Destionaion Charger at the Marriott in West Sedona AZ and guess what ....... ERROR!! Pilot signal error. It was put in over the summer and is the " wrap cord over the top kind ". There are two other Destination Chargers up here so I'm going to test them later when I go uptown...

    Roadster 3.0

    Anybody know how to find out where one stands in the line ( que) for the upgrade? My deposit went in early this year but nobody at either Rockville or Tempe seem to know how the scheduling works. One guy in Tempe told me they " only do two battery rebuilds at a time" and must wait for old...

    #1146 DMC Motor Fan Problem?

    Oh too bad ..... That does make sense. Guess I didn't think fast enough on that one. Wonder if hey still have it at the SC. Once again I guess I need to keep the YouTube on PEM and fan cleaning handy. Without "snow dam" can you access fans from the underside easier ( without taking PEM off)...

    #1146 DMC Motor Fan Problem?

    OK....... Just got car back from SC at Tempe. Nice place!! Two day service with loner. They replaced one PEM fan and removed the protective "bracket" that they said was restricting airflow to fans! They said it was there to prevent snow and winter slush from getting into fans ....... They said...

    2.x TPMS - file your complaint and lets get it recalled.
