  1. Ford drops EV sales cap, lowers training costs for some dealers

    Ford should require 2 48a L2 chargers at any dealer that sells EVs. That's a minimum of 2, publicly accessible, 24/7 as 'oh shit' stops of last resort. Or build out a supercharging network.....
  2. A new competitor coming

    Usually concept cars are pretty cool / interesting. This is neither of those.
  3. Why no Pet Mode yet?

    Because ford is legacy auto and doesn't understand how far behind they are. I hope they step up their game yesterday as they won't be around tomorrow if they didn't.
  4. Glass roof pierced by tree limb -- FIXED UPDATE

    Yeah, the glass roof does nothing for the front seats, and ya can't drive from the back seat. I'm not seeing the before pics @AEGinMD
  5. What is "Ford Streaming" ?

    It's not worth it IMO. You can do the same stuff through your phone for no additional charge. If your phone's coverage is spotty where you're at, you can haggle ATT to go $15/mo fully unlimited on the hotspot in the vehicle that's got better antennas and therefore better range. I have it...
  6. DC-Chicago Road Trip - Worth The Risk?

    Quite a few chargers on that route so go for it. Just be sure to check the chargers before you leave (plugshare). Have alternates and be sure to nav to DCFC to minimize charging time. Don't be afraid to use the car!
  7. PLEASE PLEASE bring back option of full vs 3/4 screen in New an UI. individually

    Another way to solve this is to make use of the other 80% of the IPC display which is unnecessarily bare. In my F150, the IPC (steering wheel display) allows custom views (select a list of things you want to scroll through, it's quite extensive). Typically I run it in hybrid viewing mode to...
  8. PLEASE PLEASE bring back option of full vs 3/4 screen in New an UI. individually

    Unfortunately I think they're forcing such things because the CPU/GPU is trash for the task at hand, particularly in a vehicle of this cost and its competition. Some anally retentive bean counter probably got a small bonus fucking over MME owners by saving the company $50 by using this 7 year...
  9. PLEASE PLEASE bring back option of full vs 3/4 screen in New an UI. individually

    Cool, do you wait for low battery warning before charging too? TPMS is like the oil light, what's known colloquially as idiot lights. Since the transaxles are sealed units and the seals aren't 'wet', we don't have to worry about an idiot light there, but if your TPMS comes on, you're up shit...
  10. FordPass & PAAK use cancelled unless you give away ALL personal and real-time driving data ?!

    The insure option is a wholly separate option / function. It's got its own slider. Ford does jack shit if your vehicle is stolen as others here have posted in regarding to a theft of their MME.
  11. Drive w/ driver's door open

    I haven't seen anyone question or mention it, but if you want to drive with the door open, hold the ebrake button "off".
  12. Trunk button?

    Hit the middle button top left (2nd) and the screen it brings up, frunk and trunk right there at the top. It's pretty easy to get to it.
  13. FordPass & PAAK use cancelled unless you give away ALL personal and real-time driving data ?!

    Correct. Your data legally is also things like individual part performance in the vehicle. LG makes the batteries and motors. If ford shares the vehicle specific data regarding their operation, that's legally sharing your data. I currently have the insurance thing running, and while my other...
  14. FordPass & PAAK use cancelled unless you give away ALL personal and real-time driving data ?!

    unplugging the antenna should be sufficient. If it goes missing the car may throw a code. But having no cell signal isn't a big deal.
  15. FordPass & PAAK use cancelled unless you give away ALL personal and real-time driving data ?!

    ATT -- the car doesn't pass data on your phone. When using carplay or android auto, that's basically your phone displaying stuff on the screen like a video feed of sorts. The vehicle's TCU (ATT 4G modem) is always on unless your vehicle enters low power mode, then it sleeps sync and shuts off...
  16. FordPass & PAAK use cancelled unless you give away ALL personal and real-time driving data ?!

    There's some strange operation / security options like if a bluetooth device is to be accessed, location data must be given as bluetooth can be used for location purposes. It sucks that certain things are lumped together like that. Giving access to bluetooth shouldn't require FULL location...
  17. FDRS misbehaving? Certain updates not applying / failing? Read

    So my vehicle has shown a GWM update pending for 2 weeks now, dealer couldn't even get it to go -- as in it was showing as an update on their end too. First thing I did which may or may not have had anything to do with the issue is run the process for installing a new GWM (USB required). Again...
  18. FordPass & PAAK use cancelled unless you give away ALL personal and real-time driving data ?!

    Nope, all cellular. Other updates are done at dealer via FDRS (ABS, steering, ect...) I believe they wall off certain updates so that rogue actors can't break important things. Just the media and communications.
