    Yet another entry to the EV market?

    Just saw this article, my first car was a Triumph GT6+, so I had to read it. I know it's a concept car, but will it be NACS or CCS? :p Concept Triumph EV

    AirTag Anti-theft

    I was putting an AirTag on my bike today when it got me thinking about the one I have on my keychain. I was thinking that it would probably work well with hiding one in a car. The AirTag goes in the holder, the cable loops around something sturdy and then the holder is secured around the cable...

    Wireless Charging as seen on Ask This Old House

    I was watching Ask This Old House yesterday and they showed off an inductive wireless charging system that can be retrofitted to existing cars, in the demo they used a Mustang Mach-e. Looks pretty cool except for the need to attach a 2nd display. But they said that the system is really for...

    Las Vegas Hotel Charging Stations

    Just got back from a vacation in Las Vegas. Got to the Signature at MGM Grand on Monday afternoon. Asked valet about EV charging. He said he thinks so, but he said he was the manager and the guys who drive the cars into the garage would know better (really, that's what he said). Didn't drive...

    Steal a car by breaking a headlight

    Just found and read this article. I wish companies adding software to their products (cars in this case) would hire some security professionals to point out all the flaws in their designs and don’t let hackers point them out in shipping products...

    Interesting find on the iOS App Store

    Just saw this article tonight about a car keys test app. Sounds like it‘s for developers (I read this as car company developers) to test with for integration of cars with the Apple Car Keys ecosystem. I’d say discuss, but no need to prompt this group to do that ;)...

    What happens if Alexa goes away?

    I don't use Alexa, but know that it's on the MME. Saw this article and was wondering what would happen if Amazon kills it? https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2022/11/amazon-alexa-is-a-colossal-failure-on-pace-to-lose-10-billion-this-year/

    Orange County Blue Cruise

    Does anyone know if there's a post or group that is keeping track of Blue Cruise highways? Specifically Southern California. Ford's map is just a blue blob. IF there is, let me know. If not, here goes what I found out today for Orange County: 241 toll road south from Chapman/Santiago Canyon...

    DMV Fails Driver in EV

    https://abc7.com/tesla-driving-test-bay-area-teen-fails-drivers-exam-california-dmv-electric-vehicle-braking-system/11301803/ At least the story has a happy ending in that the California DMV is actually educating their staff. Beware in other states if you’re taking your Mach-e for a driving test.

    Software Format

    For any of you software engineers out there, do you know if the Mach-e software is in Mach-O format? I'll show myself out :p

    Yet another road trip thread, OC to DFW

    Finally getting a chance to write down the four day drive from Orange County California to Fort Worth Texas. 1413.5 miles, 2.7 miles/kWh. ER, AWD, FE. Absolutely love the car, drives well, comfortable seat, good storage (never could have taken the luggage I did in my old Mustang GT :p) Unhappy...

    Quartzsite Arizona Open

    I was playing around with the Electrify America app tonight and saw that the icon for Love‘s Travel Stop in Quartzite Arizona is now operational, looks like it came alive yesterday. Now it’ll make the LA to Phoenix trip a little less worrisome.

    License Plate Arrived

    Just got the license plates for my GB FE. Now I can swap them for my personalized plates, but I wished I'd gotten them with my 2013 GT. They're 8VEE... and the Mach-e isn't a V8. Oh well.

    Minor Road Trip (~50 Miles), Cup Holder Incident

    Took the car, and my mom, out to drive around today, Orange county into LA county and back. Tried the intelligent cruise control, kind of liked it but felt strange being passed by all the other traffic. Mostly freeway, but about 25%-30% streets. The m/kWh started out great, 4.4 because of all...

    GBFE Available At Dealer

    I have a Premium RWD Extended range Infinite Blue on order, but who knows how long that will take. Looking at local dealer inventory, I see that one less than 20 miles from me has a Grabber Blue First Edition on the lot. I called to see if it was really for sale or was a demo, it was for sale...
