It seems that you need to clear ALL favorites to get rid of some.; 2. Am I the only one having a problem specifying...

    Just used a Tesla Supercharger for the first time

    One of the Tesla Supercharger locations on Long Island (Shirley) has been converted to accommodate non-Tesla charging and I decided to give it a whirl. I was impressed by how easy it was to use. You need the Tesla application and then only need to tell it what charge stationr ID you are using...

    Hotel charging ..via a Tesla destination charger

    I love to stay at hotels that have chargers. In Niagara Falls, NY recently stayed at hotel with 2 Tesla chargers. I used my Tesla Tap (for the first time) and it worked just fine. Ironically, I found myself charging next to a real Tesla and they were interested in how I was able to charge. Also...

    ANA 6 recall : dealers not able to apply?

    I recently went to the Porsche web site and got the message that my car was subject to the ANA6 recall and I should contact my dealer. Got a service appointment online (a mistake!) and took it in today. Sadly, the dealer said they did not yet have the ability to apply the patch. Has anyone had...

    Range mode needed to activate battery conditioning en route to charger?

    I have PIRM and have been experimenting with how to condition the battery (e.g. heat the battery) while enroute to a "Porsche charger" (e.g EA) in the GPS. The conditioning appears to ONLY work if I put the car in RANGE that really the only way that conditioning occurs?

    Electrify America update (and a disappointment)

    So I go to a nice new EA site just opened near me (the site is in Carle Place, New York, USA): The Good News: 1. all the hardware was working 2. Plug and Charge also worked fine 3. the Porsche GPS actually had the (new!) location in it (a pleasant surprise) The Bad News: 4. EA put in 4 brand...

    Jack Pad adapter?

    I had to jack my Taycan recently (nail in tire) and found that the jack points need an adapter (for the floor jack) which is not a "standard" Porsche adapter. Suncoast does not seem to have one and Amazon does not seem to have one. Anybody know where these might be available?

    CarPlay disappeared

    After about an hour of driving today, suddenly lost my Car Play today and simply switched to an alternative. But when I got home and removed the iphone from the console wireless charging area, found it was overheated and had suspended normal activity. I'll have to remember that I may not want it...

    AMB5 and Serendipity

    Because of this forum I was aware of the AMB5 recall and a week ago setup an appointment for Sept 2 (wanted a loaner!). I felt no urgency since the car has been running great for a couple of months and has about 2500 carefree miles on it. By chance, I get the Recall letter today and file it away...
