    Indeed, crossing the border to charge is a no-go. I don't usually take my passport

    Wow order lead times have really come down if it show up that quickly

    Supercharger - Bracebridge, ON

    Just there. The snow was only cleared on one side. And one had to back right into the snowbank to get close enough to the charger for some of them

    Barrie Supercharger (South) - handles in snow

    I'm here now. Some are in the snow. 1a 1b and 2a all refused to charge.

    SuperCharger - North Bay, ON

    To more correctly state it, Abetterrouteplanner.com says it has "limited access or function". In winter I need that link to reach family up near Englehart, so that's got me wondering.

    SuperCharger - North Bay, ON

    Is there anything wrong with the North Bay Supercharger? Abetterrouteplanner.com seems to be convinced it's an L2 charger and avoids it, and the last plugshare checkin reported 57kWh.

    Thanks, I don't know why there were two threads.

    The other thread has pictures to show it's been built and waiting for hookup.

    Was anything said about Bracebridge and Port Severn? Construction at Port Severn started 5 months ago.

    Supercharger - Port Severn, ON

    Has anyone heard on why this one is taking so long? 5 months seems excessive even for Hydro One.

    This looks good. I'll be passing this way for Christmas. It'll be nice to use it.

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    Oh, I was hoping to one day do the trip from Montreal to Kirkland Lake on the Quebec side. My in-laws are likely leaving Montreal in the next year or two, so probably won't be to Montreal much again after that.

    Plenty of room for my kids two backless boosters in thr third row. We've had them there plenty. I usually keep the third row down for easy use of cargo.

    Supercharger - Gananoque, ON

    That's what I mean. If they're finished now, and Hydro One takes 2 weeks, it'll be on in Q3. If they're still building it right to the 30th, there's very little likelihood of hydro one turning them on that day.
  17. alesgaroth

    Supercharger - Gananoque, ON

    Is there anyone who can get updated pictures? Tesla's findus page says this has a target opening of Q3 which ends in 2 weeks. I'd guess they should be close to done construction now if they want Hydro to turn it on before the end of the month.

    Supercharger - Kingston, ON (Dalton Ave)

    We were through Kingston today around 11:30. The navigation said the older station was full so I drove to Dalton Ave supercharger. It was full, but after a 5 minute wait someone pulled out. I just got plugged in when an M3 drove up. The driver started asking if we were getting charge and...

    https://www.tesla.com/en_ca/findus/location/supercharger/GananoqueONSupercharger says Q3 now. I guess they updated it a few days ago.

    Honestly, at this point, I'm expecting Prescott to be announced and built before Brockville.

    Ivy is already in Temiskaming Shores at 998029 Highway 11, Temiskaming Shores ON, Canada. There's 2 CCS and 2 ChaDeMo and in Timmins at 2207 Riverside Dr, Timmins, ON P4R 1N4, Canada

    Yes, there is that stretch. But even getting to either end of that stretch is nigh impossible with a Tesla. Possible if you want to use L2 changers.

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    Would anyone have news, rumours, or speculation about Ontario Hwy 11 between North Bay and Nipigon, and Hwy 101 to Timmins? I have family in Northeastern Ontario, and while my LRY will make it, there's times it would be much more convenient to be be able to charge on the go. If I could buy a...

    Supercharger - Kincardine, ON

    I have not done the whole lenght of hwy 21, but the sections I have been on (Owne Sound to Goderich) I can say no, not really much in the way of lake views. There are roads closer to the shore for much of that distance, but views there are few.

    Thanks for saying so. Makes me nervous that these aren't easy to work, and makes me wonder if I should ever plan to use them.

    Eastern Canada Superchargers

    Nothing new for North Eastern Ontario. Timmins, Cochrane, and Kirkland Lake are still out of reach of the supercharger network. Last summer I took 144 up to Timmins and about halfway from Sudbury the car told me to make sure I knew where I was going to charge which would have been scary if I...

    Supercharger - Kingston, ON (Dalton Ave)

    I hadn't had a chance to apply the latest update. (No wifi for the car for the week previous), so not sure that was it. The older supercharger is a shared 150kw charger, so I didn't completely disbelieve it.

    Supercharger - Kingston, ON (Dalton Ave)

    Drove through yesterday. This one was full so we were redirected to the other one. Car told me an hour and a half. Charged for 10 minutes then the in car Nav said Dalton Ave had free slots so I moved over there. 4 white Teslas were charging. 30 minutes and we were ready to go.

    Supercharger - Bracebridge, ON

    I don't know. Based on the way we've recently rarely seen multiple superchargers being installed simultaneously in Ontario, I guess just the one crew. But maybe it's several crews around a much bigger area than Ontario.
  30. alesgaroth

    Supercharger - Bracebridge, ON

    Well, a crew just finished in Kingston, let them have a break for Christmas and maybe they'll start the Brockville one after the weekend.

    Supercharger - Kingston, ON (Dalton Ave)

    Planning to be in that area around noon Wednesday. If it's in the in car Nav by then I'll skip Belleville and stop by. Otherwise maybe on the way back.
  32. alesgaroth

    Possible Location - Brockville Ontario

    Since they're currently installing in Kingston, maybe the crew will move on to Brockville next.

    Supercharger - Kingston, ON (Dalton Ave)

    I'm travelling past Kingston next week. I'm guessing they won't be all hooked up by then. Even with the prefab superchargers, 10 days seems a little much to ask for.
  34. alesgaroth

    Supercharger - Kingston, ON (Dalton Ave)

    That's great news! I'm sure lots of people would prefer Brockville though. But this should speed up people stopping to charge at Kingston on long weekends.

    Supercharger - Kingston ON

    With the news that they're building another supercharger across the street I expect everything to change in a few weeks. Whether it'll be in time for the holidays, I wonder.

    Is Phantom Braking Still a Problem?

    I've noticed it less, but it could be I'm using the adaptive cruise less as well. A few days after I posted that the hood latch sensor failed and the car was convinced the hood was up and refused to let me use cruise. I drove the next day for 6 hours without cruise and haven't really used...

    Supercharger - Kingston ON

    I'll second that advice. Make sure to pay attention to the in car Nav. The August long weekend I did my first trip that way and as we were passing Belleville it told me the Kingston supercharger was full and there was a wait. I should have stopped in Belleville. As it was I had to wait for at...

    Supercharger - Kingston ON

    Is Port Hope empty? I stopped there August long weekend and saw 4 or 5 other Telsas either leaving as I arrived, charging, or arriving as I left. For me Port Hope is the perfect spot for a bio break coming from KW. Port Hope -> Brockville -> Point Claire would break up the trip mostly evenly.

    There's 3 broken stalls now? That doesn't bode well for Christmas travelling.

    Supercharger - Kingston ON

    Are they opening Brockville? I was feeling pretty confident 6 months ago, since they gave a quarter that it should be open in, but now, we're half way through the quarter and there doesn't seem to be any rumours of it being built. It would certainly make my Christmas trip to Montreal easier.

    Is Phantom Braking Still a Problem?

    I went out for a short drive yesterday after we had a rain storm to show the car to my nephew-in-law. Twice on the way back the car just kind of slowed down for no apparent reason. It felt like it was confused by the wet asphalt.

    Supercharger - Kingston ON

    It was pretty orderly when I was there on Sunday. There were a few people that seemed to take it in hand to direct who should be next. And even told me to go when it was my turn to a spot I couldn't see had opened up.

    Phantom Braking Discussion

    As I was driving to Montreal on Sunday this happened several times. I am currently unable to take a video at all, so couldn't record it. It seemed to happen more around high traffic than empty roads. It's quite disturbing and surprising. To the point I drove a good part of the way with TACC off.

    Supercharger - Kingston ON

    Currently at the Kingston station. There are more cars waiting to get a spot than there are chargers. I had to wait about 20 minutes to get a spot. Really looking forward to there being a Brockville station.

    Current Delivery Times

    My trade in offer expired twice. They just asked for an updated odometer reading, and offered me the same price. As long as you haven't done huge amounts of driving, I would expect it to be at least a very similar price.

    I've got a Blue/Black 7 seater with Tow Hitch. Got my VIN today, though I think it was attached to my account yesterday. I also ordered mid March.

    7-seat config waiting room

    My account also seems to be in a redirect loop. I emailed my SA and he told me I have a VIN via email, then called me to set up a delivery time. I've got Friday off, so I'll be picking it up then. I still don't know what my VIN is, but apparently I have one.

    I can't even get in to the page to find out if I've gotten a VIN. I've been trying for two hours now. :(
