    Road Trip Report - Texas to California Round Trip

    Dropping to 5-6% at each stop could be nerve-wrecking. In my experience, the built-in planner could be wrong by +/- 10% and once SOC drops below 10%, you better be really close to a charging station.

    Wish I had not watched this! Software issues

    I've had over a dozen different PCM glitches over past year (recurring at different rates), and you know what.. screw Porsche for not patching these. Some ppl claim they had ZERO issues, good for them. If the non-glitchy PCM software exists, why can't Porsche roll it out to EVERYONE? 🤬

    New recall? Vehicle Display Malfunction/FMVSS 111

    I've experienced the rear-camera and the 360-degree view malfunction numerous times, and I brought it up to the dealer. So, it's great that finally there is some traction on fixing this problem. The VIN lookup tool doesn't show my car though yet, so we'll see how long it takes to actually get it...

    My Porsche App 4.0 is out for iPhone

    ⭐ 1.7 stars... the whole fking mobile+PCM software team should be fired in shame. "We hope you enjoy using the My Porsche app as your digital companion." -- I give them 5 clowns 🤡🤡🤡🤡🤡

    First 1000 miles - prioritization of features for buyers & some remaining mysteries for owners

    Yes. Auto-regen is awesome. I only wish it didn't turn off by itself (when car is shut off)

    Show your home charging setup for your Taycan

    (FYI: I'm in California) I finally finished a home charger set up. It took a while to plan it all out. The primary challenge was to find a good location, and then the path for the new cable, and then to pull it though. I didn't want to hire an electrician, since I wanted it be done exactly right...

    The new "My Porsche" app is trash! Oh my.

    What is most frustrating for me, is that Porsche stopped updating the "old" app for at least 6 months.. and that would be fine, knowing that they were working on a "new" one..... BUT they just replaced a turd with a sh*t sandwich. I would expect some heads to roll in their software department...

    The new "My Porsche" app is trash! Oh my.

    Are you speaking for Porsche? Sounds a lot like their official position on all issues brought forward.

    6 months in with 4S - the great/good, the bad/ugly

    The new "My Porsche" app is trash! Oh my.

    Porsche recently migrated users from the OLD "Porsche Connect" app to the highly-anticipated NEW "My Porsche" app. In summary: Old "Porsche Connect" ended its run at 3.2 stars (Android) and 4 stars (iOS) https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.porsche.connect...

    Am i the only with a crap PCM and electronics all around?

    Press where the pink dots are, and screen will go dark after a second. Then, choose the last option, and confirm. It will reboot, starting with the PORSCHE logo.

    Am i the only with a crap PCM and electronics all around?

    With regard to PCM rebooting - I never had that (had tons of other glitches though). The opposite problem also exists - the "Shut down PCM" doesn't do *anything* beside turning off the screen. To reboot it, I've learned the two-finger trick to enter/leave Engineering mode, which takes 2-3...

    6 months in with 4S - the great/good, the bad/ugly

    It's actually surprising to hear so many positive testimonies. I literally just 5 minutes ago stepped outside to put my car into garage, and it gave me the usual "subscription changed", "check SiriusXM antenna", and then boom -- "Park Assist not available, service necessary, blah-blah-blah" and...

    Top to Bottom Review of the 2021 Taycan 4S (After 6 months ownership)

    AutoRegen is wonderful, and I think it should have been the default. At least, it should be remembered next time car is turned on. Essentially, when you approach another car from behind, re-gen is applied just enough to slow you down and keep safe distance from that car in front - all without...

    6 months in with 4S - the great/good, the bad/ugly

    As they say, your experience may differ. At least, I'm thankful that I haven't had any SERIOUS issues, like with the battery/powertrain - so the car has been frustrating and disappointing as a daily driver, but it's been a reliable vehicle in terms of getting me from point A to point B - fast...

    6 months in with 4S - the great/good, the bad/ugly

    I had "key not detected" a few times as well. As a loaner, they gave me a Cayenne, and then, a Macan of recent model years, and I instantly recognized the "Porsche software DNA" - convoluted and clunky. I even was able to get the screen to lock up just by using the PCM normally before driving...

    6 months in with 4S - the great/good, the bad/ugly

    That's a really good question. Hypothetically, I would have waited longer to see. Now knowing the pathetic state of software at Porsche, I would NOT recommend this car to anyone for *normal use*, as a daily driver. Maybe for racing or special use, like short-term luxury rental. By the way...

    6 months in with 4S - the great/good, the bad/ugly

    That I understand. It's just such a niche scenario that I am puzzled why it exists. The 100% accurate location also seems dubious - every time I open the Connect app at a charging station, it "thinks" the car is still parked at home. On the other hand, the Valet mode is something I would have...
