    Missing the “G” icon in Nav Search

    Yes I am so jazzed to see the “G” has returned, just before a large road trip. Also I looked and the send destination from My Porsche is now available. Looks like Porsche really is into making software changes, perhaps not at the rate the customers would like but it seems to be in the right...

    Missing the “G” icon in Nav Search

    I received a callback from PCNA, they confirmed with me that the contract to provide the Google search has ended and is being removed. This was the worst outcome from of my fears, though I do appreciate getting an answer. They have escalated my second issue of the missing ability to send a...

    Missing the “G” icon in Nav Search

    I did talk with Porsche Cars North America and they had be remove my account and re-add it but no change. I also talked to two other Taycan 2020 owners in my area and confirmed the same issue with them. I called my local dealership and a salesman was kind enough to check a 2021 and the G icon...

    Missing the “G” icon in Nav Search

    Thanks for the update Marty, I was noticing that the send to function wasn’t where I expected it a few days ago and no I agree with you it is completely missing. I will add that to my ticket.

    Missing the “G” icon in Nav Search

    I have had my 2020 Taycan since November 2020 and have appreciated the “G” icon in the search bar next to the text entry area. For those that don’t know pressing on this icon will perform a Google search for the destination you type in which is much more gracious and thorough than the search...

    EA charging

    I would add just a few more things to watch for to get the optimal speed: Be sure to add battery temperature to your third console display tube and verify it is between 90 and 96°F on arrival. In order to get this you cannot choose a station that is too close to when you start routing as the...

    EA charging

    That is a rather dated charging curve. Porsche has updated the Charging profile to maintain 250+ kilowatts up to at least 43% and Kyle Connor has reported it to go up to 50% at times. I have seen it at over 40% myself.

    Extended Warranty - worth it?

    I had gotten a 10yr 100k warranty from Fidelity thru my dealership for about $4300 on my 2020 Taycan 4S. I tend to hang onto cars and I know Porsche parts and service are not cheap.

    Anybody ever checked charging efficiency?

    281Wh/km or 452Wh/mi is insanely high. You would have to be going 100mph or 160km/hr to get that efficiency or be at temperature below 0C in my opinion. I reliably average 330Wh/mi or 209Wh/km and thus see ranges of 250-260mi / 400-420km. I have 20” wheels Taycan 4S+ temps avg 60F or 15.5C in...

    Plug and Charge just worked for me

    I have heard on pretty solid authority that Plug&Charge is not available on the 2020 Taycans. it requires a hardware update that Porsche is not as of yet offering as a retrofit. I am somewhat bummed, thinking they would have had that thought out in 2020. :(

    At 95% of speed limit and shortest legs I get 4.6hr. This was based on my average efficiency with 4S on 20” all season tires.

    Upgraded from 2020 Taycan 4S to 2022 Taycan 4S

    Per the 150kW dc-dc converter upgrade option. I also did not speck this on my 2020 4S and I still have no regrets after 22k miles and 14 months. The reason is I use EA 99% on road trips and looking even across the USA there are only a handful of stations above 100kW that are not 800v capable...
