  1. Trip to La Belle Province

    My local EA location has the units at the end of the parking spaces, so it is easy to plug in. From what I read on the EA website, the two plugs on the CCS only chargers are redundant. I noticed one of the cables is slightly longer on a few chargers, but otherwise they have about the same reach...
  2. Trip to La Belle Province

    My third MME road trip was to Montreal, an old favorite destination. I went up to visit friends and go to an Electric Car Show at Olympic Stadium. I decided to try out Airbnb and stay at a residential neighborhood in Lachine. A big plus was a dual Level 2 EVSE located at the on-street parking...
  3. Montreal Electric Vehicle Show at Parc olympique this weekend

    I am visiting friends in Montreal and went to my first dedicated Electric Car Show over at the Olympic Stadium. I got to briefly talk to a Ford person and some of the other service providers I use. It was great. There are some interesting EVSEs being produced in Quebec and Ontario. I could not...
  4. 10K Service and PAAK update experience

    The service was under $30.
  5. 10K Service and PAAK update experience

    The service credit was just the Fordpass Points (using the proper name) I got when I bought the car. I may try out the PAAK again and put the key in a faraday bag. Thanks for the comments.
  6. 10K Service and PAAK update experience

    I would rather keep the traditional key fob. If I activated it, then I am more likely to forget the fob when I need it. Edit: I still wish they had the emergency key like I had for my 2015 FFH. Call me old-fashioned.
  7. Second Road trip to Maritime Canada

    I had an interesting discussion today with a Tesla Model 3 owner who originally had a Chevy Bolt. We were discussing my trip to Halifax. He did a trip to Saint John, NB using the same NB Route 1. He made a comment about the poor roads in New Brunswick causing problems with the Model 3, due to...
  8. 10K Service and PAAK update experience

    I took my MME in for 10K service at the dealer where I bought the car. The salesman said I had a $250 service credit. It was easy to make the appointment in the Fordpass app. The dealer was a 50 minute drive in Londonderry NH. They have a nice service department setup. The 10K service is...
  9. Northern New England Meet Up? Portsmouth NH…..

    I am located on North Shore of MA. I am interested in A, B, or C. I am available weekends in September and October, except Sept 11-12, and October 16. There is also a New England Electric Auto Association that has meetups mainly in Southern New England. They did have a meetup in Kittery, ME and...

  11. Canada Invests in New Fast and Ultra-Fast EV Chargers in Quebec

    This is good news for my future travels to Quebec in my new Mach-E. I hope more 100kW and higher units are installed. https://www.canada.ca/en/natural-resources-canada/news/2021/07/canada-invests-in-new-fast-and-ultra-fast-ev-chargers-in-quebec.html The picture related to the announcement...
  12. Second Road trip to Maritime Canada

    I was focused on Eastern Maine in the planning for this trip and not as much for the other portions. I looked at the DC Fast chargers in the Ford network and there are only two in NB. The only one on my route was the one I used in Moncton. I do not want to sign up for a lot of EVSE networks...
  13. Second Road trip to Maritime Canada

    My second road trip was originally similar to the first, but I was going to use US Route 1 instead of I-95. I planned on attending a Car and Coffee event at the Seal Cover Auto Museum and stay for a couple of days at the Seawall Motel in Seawall, ME again. The plan changed when Canada opened the...

    It could be rolled out to early access members at the same time as the factory installs.
  15. BlueCruise sign up offer invite

    Ford is working on a new vehicle for Hawaii. I am planning on trying it out BlueCruise, which is easier for me to do for $600 than $10,000 if I had a Tesla.
  16. Features or quirks you've noticed that you didn't know existed before ownership?

    I went from Sync 2 to Sync 4A. I read general stuff about Sync 4A, but did not completely understand what it could do using my phone and Android Auto. The voice command is better as is reading text messages and replying. The long press of the button to input directly to the phone is very handy...
  17. Tesla converter plug for MME

    I have the original UMC-J1772 50A "Tesla Tap". It works great. I did have a problem at a motel that had two Tesla Destination Chargers and a ClipperCreek Level 2 J1772 Charger. I had a problem with the J1772 Charger, so I tried a Destination Charger with the same result. It turns out the...
  18. Can I reprogram tire size?

    I looked at the as built data for my Mach E and a CA Route 1 that has a different tire. The spreadsheet for the Fusion did not jive with the values I see. It could be the calculation is different or maybe it is someplace else entirely. It will be interesting to see what value the GT has. Model...
  19. Road trip planning tools

    There are several different SOC values available over the OBD2, which seems to be accurate. The Displayed SOC value has 0.5% resolution in the OBD2. Besides the SOC, there is an Estimated kW until Empty value. I have mainly focused on charging data values, but hope to find other interesting...
  20. Public API

    I was able to find a few values through the OBD2. https://www.macheforum.com/site/threads/ford-mustang-mach-e-extended-pids-for-torque-project.7427/ I thought it was interesting the displayed SOC is to 0.5% but the car displays to 1%. I suspect the estimated energy to empty (kW) and the battery...
