    Could not remove charger handle at remote station: GOOD TIP

    I was driving to Houston from Dallas with my wife and stopped off at an EA for a fill up. For some reason it did not recognize my car when I plugged in but attribute this to Porsche dealer totally resetting my PCM because all secondary screens would randomly go out. (After sitting overnight...

    Mobile Connect Charger: Software Update

    I came to my car this morning and noticed the MobileConnect Charger screen said that the software was updated. Is this software updated to the charger or to the car or both? How can I research what it does or how it affects me? My Internet radio still takes forever (1-5 minutes) to load! :(

    Mobile Charger Settings on 120V

    The mobile charger is semi-smart. When it is attached to a 50A circuit with the "dryer" plug/220V the charger automatically sets itself to charge at 40A. Question 1: Why doesn't it default or all me to bump to 50A? I think it is so that it won't blow the 50A fuse and leaves 10A buffer. As...
