Just received a book of Essays on Electricity and its impact on civilisation from Vauxhall for Ampera owners.

It looks an interesting book but to be honest I think Vauxhall need to get there priorities right... I can do without these trivial gifts... just improve the car software instead and I'd be happy.

Yes it is a nice touch... I suppose I am just a little angry and very cynical given the state of the software on our "state of the art", £39,000 car... that doesn't even have a working SatNav !!!

For me the gloss is wearing very thin right now and this just rubs my nose in it.

IIRC you don't have an Ampera satnav... you decided to use your phone instead didn't you? No wonder yours works!

I too now use a £100 TomTom instead of the £2000 satnav in the Ampera. It just doesn't allow me to navigate to so many addresses it isn't fit for purpose. Perhaps if Vauxhall had their priorities right they would set about correcting their mistakes so we, the pioneers... the early adopters, don't have to suffer.

I have yet to see any evidence that Vauxhall are remotely interested in what we have to say about the car or in correcting any of the issues we are raising regarding the software. IMO they have had plenty of time to bring out revision software.
