  1. Employer does not like me having an EV

    General EV Discussion
    Tell them you'll be happy to use a pool car for business trips. This would mean picking it up from the office after your day started, and returning it before the end - as you can't use pool cars for personal stuff. I'm assuming that at the moment you go direct to/from clients, thus saving the...
  2. Viewing interior temperature from App

    Tesla Model S
    Seems a bit random. I'm guessing a bunch of telemetry data is sent over from the car. Perhaps HVAC isn't always available, and it doesn't make sense to "wake up" whatever system sends it everytime you launch the app.
  3. First Tesla AutoPilot Death

    General EV Discussion
    I've skipped a few pages, so sorry if someone has already spelled it out. AUTOPILOT DOES NOT DRIVE THE CAR! It's a combination of adaptive cruise control, lane holding and emergency braking. Nothing which isn't uncommon in other cars in the class. Autopilot doesn't break the speed limit...
  4. Tesla Ap

    Tesla Model S
    Yeah, "start" allows the car to "wake up" and be in driving mode when you press the brake, even if the key is not in the car. AP will only engage when traveling below 90, and when the car can "see" the lane markings properly. In this case, the drivers screen will show the cruise & steering...
  5. First Tesla AutoPilot Death

    General EV Discussion
    My Model S enforces it! Although, what can you do if some people are just not going to read/follow the instructions? There's a statement from a witness saying the MS passed them while they were doing 85mph, so it couldn't have been far off 90 (at which point AP is not available). If you drive...
  6. Regional: Long shot - anyone in Brabourne Lees or Rye

    Groups, Gatherings and Regional Discussion
    Visiting the area, and just wondering if there is anyone in Brabourne Lees with anything >= 7kW I could jump on for an hour or two this afternoon/evening? Or In the center of Rye with anything I could plug in overnight? I'm not stuck or anything, it would just make tomorrow's driving a bit...
  7. Tesla Stockport Manchester

    Tesla Model S
    There are deffo some communication issues. Not sure it's just isolated to Stockport though. I picked my car up from Birmingham in September, so that's where my "snagging list" started. When Manchester opened, that was much more convenient, but I can't say there is much difference in the way they...
  8. Model 3 CCS charging?

    Tesla Model 3
    I don't think the fight is quote over yet. You only have to read this forum for 5 mins to find threads full of the farce that is ecotricity units and the like when compared to how Tesla have setup the SuperCharger stalls. Due the the way they have separated the stalls from the chargers, they...
  9. Model 3 CCS charging?

    Tesla Model 3
    Maybe Tesla rejoined to try and push away from the frankenplug to their "Type2" plug.
  10. Is it just me or the is Tesla Nav going a bit bonkers of late?

    Tesla Model S
    I think the biggest problem is the traffic compensation. On Thursday I was doing a run to Wilmslow between 6 and 7ish. Normal route is M58, M6, M56. But the sat-nav was insisting on trying not to use the M56. To start with, there was a red stretch on the M56, but before we had even made it to...
  11. If the UK leaves the EU and £ plumit will Tesla honour order prices?

    General Tesla Motors Discussion
    And if the £ does well, and the effective price of the car goes down, will you pay your order price?
  12. Bank Holiday and Hopwood Park has a problem

    Charging Locations
    Nahh, the white car is a Merc. But there was a 7th MS off to the right. Not waiting to charge though, it was there when I arrived (it was empty when I got there). I left just after I took the photo which was about 2 mins after the 6th one arrived, so the next MS wouldn't have had to wait anyway. :-)

  14. 50% of battery = ??kWh

    Tesla Model S
    I've been watching my figures more closely over the last few long trips, and noticed that 50% of my capacity = 37.5kWh. (Charged to 90%, drove, at 40% trip stats showed 37.5) This is a P85D, so is actual usable capacity only 75kWh? What kWh do you log for 50% battery use?
  15. New Charging network launching with Q Park UK

    Charging Locations
    *facepalm* You get what you pay for... buy cheap, buy twice... etc... etc... Whoever came up with the idea of skinning wordpress for what should be a completely bespoke application should be fired! Also have a look at braintree and stripe for payments. They have such better API's and give a...
  16. Car not locked

    Tesla Model S
    It's not raining here, so I've done a test. I've just been out to the car with the key in my pocket. Waited for the unlock, then opened the boot. While the boot was open, took the key back inside the house then when back out without the key and closed the boot. But now that I am checking on my...
  17. Car not locked

    Tesla Model S
    I wonder if the walk-away lock is ignored if a door, froot or boot is open when you walk away?
  18. Car not locked

    Tesla Model S
    Did you leave the key in the boot? or unlock it from outside the proximity range? Edit, to clarify:- The automatic locking is "Walk away lock", not "automatically lock after detecting the key is not nearby for a short period of time". So as far as I can tell from my own experience, if you...

    Charging Locations
    @Gonville - Is the website still my.franklinenergy.co.uk? ... That's not where you entered your IBAN and Account Number is it? ... The one with the invalid SSL certificate? ... That gets an F on securityheaders.io?
  20. New round of Clubhouse events

    General Tesla Motors Discussion
    As far as I am aware, they are not closed to only Tesla owners. We probably just get the invites first. You should be able to click the link above and RSVP though.
