Can anyone clarify how many updates there have been and what they do?
You sure there hasn't been 2 BMS updates? Initial one to address premature sleeping, and a subsequent one to address timed charging? Plus there is a rumoured update to reduce the bongage due soon. Plus a loom soft recall on the the electric window wiring on 1 door?There's only been one update so far, and that's to the Battery Management System (BMS) to enable scheduled charging from chargers that are powered up on a time switch (like putting a timer plug on the supplied "granny charger"). However this update has done nothing to fix the problem with "smart" chargers, which stay powered all the time. There is also a lot of pressure on MG to release updates to fix the excessive "bonging", lack of outside temperature display, lack of battery percentage and charging status reports, smartphone app, etc. So we're hoping (against hope, perhaps) that more updates are on the way this year.
Yes, that's what I thought?You sure there hasn't been 2 BMS updates? Initial one to address premature sleeping, and a subsequent one to address timed charging? Plus there is a rumoured update to reduce the bongage due soon. Plus a loom soft recall on the the electric window wiring on 1 door?
me too, I'm told my car is arriving in a batch from China on or soon after the 2nd March. #teamredexclusive
There is definitely 2 BMS updates. The second one is dated 20th January.I'm pretty sure there's only been one - it was supposed to address timed charging by waking up from "sleep" when the CP signal from the EVSE (charger) came up. However with "smart" chargers, that doesn't happen (signal is present all the time) so the MG still won't schedule charge with these EVSEs unless the vendor themselves builds in a work-around (as Ohme have done). I spent a day at my dealer last week, where they re-applied the (only) update, to make sure it was definately updated, as I was able to demonstrate that the scheduled charge problem was still there. Happily I have an Ohme charger, so I'm successfully scheduled charging every night .
