I took these screenshots 4 seconds apart.
Close and reopen the app. The Home Page battery Info isn’t updated as often as the Vehicle Page.

And that’s fine. Nobody is using FordPass to check tire pressure. Nest that and all the other pointless stuff. Put all the useful stuff on one page and call it good.
- State of Charge and GOM
- Charge Management and Locate DCFC
- Active charging status
- Controls (remote start, lock, windows, lift gate, etc.)

I mean, that’s basically it. Why Ford can’t understand this is beyond me. Why they insist on packing this app to the gills with pointless stuff is beyond me. Or keep it all files away somewhere but get it outa my way.
Hmm. I just checked tire pressure with the app a couple of days ago when the temperature had dropped. I guess that makes me nobody.

No, you’re just the exception that proves the rule. You’d have to admit that tire pressure and basically everything else would be a DISTANT fifth to the stuff I listed. I’m not saying people will never use it - just very rarely. Ford doesn’t seem to good understanding of what stuff is commonly used versus rarely used.

Odd. I did the same thing this morning. And I also checked on the truck the same way. Handy little feature isn’t it?

I look at the tire pressure in the app all the time. I actually liked it better seeing it on the info screen without having to click through submenus.

There is a ton of construction near us...I check the tire pressure on both of our cars regularly...we’ve had multiple nails in tires....The last thing I need is to be surprised with a flat/low tire pressure...

Well, I finally got around to updating the App; only to discover it is automatically updating. After reading the posts above and realizing the tire pressure & et al was not on the home screen any longer. Is it automatically updating because of a setting I have on the iPhone?

Yes, I find that annoying!!! Why would the home page not update but the vehicle page is realtime? Is that just a software error? Hoping they fix that. Annoying to close the app and have to reopen. My internal game is to try to get the app opened quick enough not to see the notification: "Ford Pass App works better.... blah"

Yes, it seems to be a bug. The Home Screen randomly gets stuck and stops updating. You have to kill the app and start it again to get it unstuck. Not sure if that bug has gotten any better in this update.
