Hi,

Has anybody been able to find the logic when the preheating is starting? So far there seems to be a difference between plugged in yes or no. In morning when not plugged in it seems to start later than in afternoon when plugged in. Reason for asking is the like to have a warmed up car when starting driving and not that it is already cooling down or not even started to warm up. (Battery level is always above 50%). I just tried and it seems that 45 min before departure time some systems are started (interior lights of gear box are on for instance), but preheating seemed to start another 10-15 minutes later.
And especially since the app more often not working than working it is also not so easy to manual start whenever you want :(

Thanks

It seems to vary based on temperature (battery/outside) I think. I checked our camera couple of times (You notice the charging port lights up when activated) and it seemed to vary between 45 mins to an hour before the scheduled time on average.

I'm not sure on the exact logic behind it unfortunately.
