one other road trip thought/memory: at one point there were four of us in the car, going down a highway at highway speed, and the two in the back were having a normal-volume conversation, and the two in the front were having a normal-volume conversation, and the interior was quiet enough that it all worked... maybe this is more #NotAMustang? πŸ˜‰

The last stop of the trip to there was at the EA station at the Walmart in Frederick, MD. These are far enough off to the side from the store that there's no real danger of ICEing, but the store was still walkable.

Been there, charged that (in our Leaf to get back home). Except during Black Friday or Christmas shopping rushes, I agree these are well-placed to prevent ICEing.

Being along the outer row I probably wouldn't feel guilty blocking part of the operation in a Lightning pulling a trailer. However, this remains a real concern of mine.

I took the picture mainly because it was so pretty at night 😜

I think if you were able to use the right-most one you could do so without blocking too badly.

I realized on the E-Z Pass web site for the authority I have mine from that the Mach-E doesn't exist on the list, so I'm not sure if I pick "Mustang" or "Other" (#NotAMustang πŸ˜‚):

The list is quite comprehensive (what the heck is a Ford Orion or Ford Pilot?!?) and even does thing like break down the C-Max into Hybrid vs. Energi, and had my Fusion Energi as a unique entry. So... that was just an interesting thing to me.

1.7.1 is here! I need to go update my survey response but I noticed that the upper-left button now shows a "close" hint, which I don't think anyone has mentioned, and the SiriusXM title/song layout is nicer (the release notes talk about icons but I haven't seen this mentioned).

I saw some folks mention that the blue bar on the nav is "not useless" now or some such.

I didn't see anyone mention that as the bar shrinks for the approach to the turn, that if you have the tile visible for it, that it also has a blue bar that shrinks, in this case as a background for the turn portion of tile, which is a nice way I think to force the idea in there without shrinking the already small-ish text:

sorry for the blurry picture :(

nah, I've seen WarGames; I know what the only winning move is.
You would think that would be the case, but Ford apparently didn't want us to feel bad because the programming allows the player to win. The WOPR, it is not.

it could be argued that WOPR lost in the movie as well given that it ultimately surrenders control back.
