    Just made a discovery. I have a power meter on our office charging station. The car had finished charging and after I started a cabin preheat it was showing 4A @ 200V. I checked and sure enough the green light was on and the contactors engaged. It was drawing power for the cabin heater from the EVSE!

    Works like a charm but no provision to program start time for charge which would be very convenient

    Highlight of my day! Unfortunately, "remote access" is not turned on in the car(possibly because the build isn't fully completed). I plan to track the car on it's way to me in the next few days.

    I beleive this will be an upgrade concurrent with the car's software.

    I doubt you'll be able to; mine's on the way to Maryland and I can't track mine with it. They don't turn on remote access at the factory, which makes sense, IMHO, much as we'd all like to track our car on its path to us. ;-)

    Wish they would as then we'd stop bugging them for updates. I'm sure I can get the Chicago Service Center to turn it on before it makes the 600 mile trek up to me.

    Doug,

    What type of power meter are you using, the TED5000? I'm considering buying the TED5000, they even have a remote iPhone app! It seems well built and pretty easy to install.

    What I'm using isn't a commercial product. I'm sure the TED would do a good job.

    Incidentally, I tried it again with the cabin at a warmer temperature, and this time the EVSE turned on and delivered 2A. So cool - it runs from "ground power"! That will definitely save some juice on those extreme cold days.

    No app in the European app store. :(


    Let me see if I can use the US app store.
    No luck.

    According to apple we cannot use the US app store from outside the US.

    I checked as well, would just be fun to install the App for 2 minutes. After that it becomes a waiting game again.

    What the %$#@&^*?

    Anyone try to get the app on an iPad? The description says iPad, iPhone, iPod touch, but I sure as heck can't get it on the iPad.

    It requires iOS 4.3. Are you running something earlier on your iPad?

    They likely won't release it in Europe until the cars themselves are being delivered.
