I bought an OBD adapter (in my case it was the OBDLink MX+ Bluetooth interface) and I've tried different apps with it. My adapter comes with OBDLink software ... but that doesn't have direct support for the Mach-E. I also tried FORScan ... which also doesn't have direct support yet for Mach-E...
Today at 1:15p Eastern I got a message in the Ford Pass app:
Desired charge level will not be reached
Mach-E will only reach 89% by your Departure Time, as there is not enough time to charge.
But... I don't have any scheduled departures. I have the car configured to limit charging to 80% and...
This update introduced some new capabilities to "My Journeys" but it also fixes some bugs.
I noticed straight away that if fixed the Ford Pass Apple Watch app:
Instead of the animated "Refresh" screen... I now see this on my watch:
Apparently I'm not alone...
But at least it's a generic Ford Pass bug and nothing specific to the Mach-E. Hopefully it gets Ford's attention and they get a software update -- or instructions on how to fix it -- soon.
I love the new car, but I'm experiencing quite a few software issues with the Ford.com & Ford Pass software. The software seems pretty clunky.
Activation was failing... even two hours later the car wouldn't activate (message on phone says "Activation Pending" but never goes away...

Now the bad news:
There is damage to the car. :eek:
The black trim on the front has been scraped up. The dealer was watching the car get unloaded and noticed it (so it's the responsibility of the trucking...
My dealer contacted me this afternoon. They don't have the car ... yet. BUT... it has been unloaded from the train at a depot only about 3 miles from the dealer. It arrived at the depot at 9:35am this morning.
They are waiting for it to arrive at the dealer.
He did warn me that sometimes...
My dealer updated me with status on my car:
Shipped Rail - Railcar # CTTX692367
Ramp SP, Kansas City Mc, MO
Jan-27-2021, 15:00 CT
So it looks like it was loaded onto the railcar...
I just got the email from my dealer that part of my car is here!
Specifically... this part:
Yeah, I know... just the floor mats. But BY GOLLY IT'S A START! And I can now brag that I have more of my car than anyone else at this time! 😁
The real story is I tried to order "Interior...
