Leaving a generic title so we can post anything related to the FordPass App. If it gets to crazy we can always break it down.

So, FordPass for iOS was updated to version 3.17.0.
Did they really remove any indication that the car is charging? The only way to get this information is to go to Vehicle— manage EV — manage Charging.
Really???
It’s so much better to leave this indication in the main screen, next tô the batter level. :-(

I couldn’t get the trip planner to work. It keeps popping out an error message.
“No vehicle signal record”.

That is weird, while I never actually executed a trip planner, I was able to simulate and see the route it suggested.

Agreed, charging status should be right there on the main screen. I've had trouble with DCFC stations shutting off mid-charge. It's great to just look and see if charging is going on. Under Manage EV it would be nice to get real stats on % and kWh charged and current charging rate.

The Android App updated the other day as well. The first day after the update my charging status went away, and had to go through the menu to find it, But the next day its back.

How long into the charging session are you having it stop? Mine has done that twice

That was based on old experience with the Leaf and I think was the fault of the charging stations. I've yet to DCFC my Mach E.

FordPass does not recognize a connected home charger - keeps saying Not connected or something like that even if connected. This happens more when the car has been sleeping and you connect the EVSE for the night but the schedule has not yet begun. . I notice that my EVSE APp says its connected but Fordpass does not update until after the actual schedule kicks in. Its fine if you connect while the car still in a mode where it recognizes the connection and reports it to FordPass, like right away after you turn off the engine.

Another issue with FordPass is its Map. It thinks my house address is several blocks away. So I suppose its best to say its not accurate? Google Maps and Apple Maps have no issues but Ford Pass for some reason either is not updated (it it recognizes the address) or incorrect.
