    Estimated range dropping off a cliff

    Thanks for the data points. It was in the mid 30's most of the day here in NY (maxed at 42F) and 90% got me 198. I can live with this. I just wanted to be sure it was normal.

    Estimated range dropping off a cliff

    Thats my daily commute. We don’t all use the car just for work. I take it on ling drives occasionally too like anyone else

    Estimated range dropping off a cliff

    I get that. The 20% estimate wasn’t matching what I was seeing so obviously that was wrong. The odd thing was that the numbers satrted dropping the end of August when temps were still warm but not hot so I was using less AC. I would think that would have helped the mileage

    Estimated range dropping off a cliff

    I realize cold weather causes a significant loss of range but when I first got my Premium extended range MME the estimated range with 100% charge was over 300 miles. I know thats not very accurate but it stayed like that for months until around August when it began dropping off. As if today a...

    Has anyone tried this new Recurrent service

    I see. I thought they were using the data they were collecting to develop better/more accurate advice about battery health. Not very helpful though if they are just applying the same cookie cutter advice to every EV. That seems to defeat the whole purpose of this system.

    Has anyone tried this new Recurrent service

    So if Im reading this correctly it says you should be charging to only 80% if you want to maintain maximum battery health. I thought it was 90%. Thats what Ive been doing each night.

    Has anyone tried this new Recurrent service

    Just saw this. Might be useful and its free (of course free means sharing your data). Has anyone tried this? https://electrek.co/2021/11/20/recurrent-monitor-and-compare-the-battery-health-of-evs-free/

    Journey reports, does anyone find these useful?

    I was looked at these reports a few times. Seems like my braking is always great but if I make a turn at anything more than 2 mph or accelerate at anything more than a crawl it flags me for rapid acceleration or rapid or moderate cornering. So basically unless you're a 90 year old lady you're...

    My Mach-E “Gas” Pump

    Despite this common belief you don't actually get tetanus from rust. You get it when an open wound is exposed to soil. I guess nails sitting int he dirt are often rusty, hence the confusion. There should be no risk from brushing up against this rusty pump. All the same, it's always a good idea...

    Why does Shazam shut off the radio?

    I found a partial workaround. If i use Shazam on my Apple watch it does not affect playback from the radio or any other source.

    Why does Shazam shut off the radio?

    I'll have to check that. On my previous car I never used CarPlay even though it was available. I connected by Bluetooth but I could easily switch between the radio and Bluetooth as the audio source with one button press. If I was listening to the radio I could use Shazam. I'll have to figure...

    Why does Shazam shut off the radio?

    The reason I do this is that once Shazam identifies a song it allows you to add whatever song it identifies to your Spotify play list with just one or two taps.

    Why does Shazam shut off the radio?

    My MME is the first car in which Ive actually used carplay. I always avoided it in the past because of limited functionality and other issues. Today i noticed if try to use the Shazam app to identify a song that is playing on the radio so I can add it to Spotify the radio shuts off. Why does...

    How-to DIY: Disable Double Honk with Mach-E Running in FORScan

    This is the one I had turned off. Yesterday when I did this the horn still honked. I didn't do anything additional today and the horn no longer seems to beep. Maybe the car had to cycle on and off for the new setting to take? I'll see what happens today.

    How-to DIY: Disable Double Honk with Mach-E Running in FORScan

    After someone suggested turning it off and relying on the phone notification I turned off the audible notification and I had the same issue. It still honks. Ill have to go through the menu again and see if I missed something

    How-to DIY: Disable Double Honk with Mach-E Running in FORScan

    Would love to have an alternate sound when the car autolocks. It scares the hell out of people. The car locks when the driver is only 10 or 20 feet away. A soft chirp would do the job.

    3,300 Mile Road Trip 1 Week After Purchase

    Agreed but way too much app switching when trying to drive. They need to find a way to incorporate more of these functions into a single app if mo other purpose than safety
