Ford Pass was a disaster for me. After talking to EA they advised me to turn it off on the plug and charge. What was fascinating about doing that is sometimes the charging was still being picked up automatically by ford However using my own money made it far faster and easier. The 250 ford gives you is not that much. It equates to about $35 dollars. The frustration and time screwing with was far more. I estimate I lost around 90 minutes of the trip dealing with Ford Pass. EA told me to turn it off. Once I did charging was easy and faster.
Glad to hear this. Exactly what I’m planning to do... if I ever get it delivered. Def wait til it’s ready for prime time.

That's not bad, is it?
Not when you count California rates. I had 9 stops in total. None were over 9.00. Most were in the 7-8 range. The only issue well issuesssss

1. One EA station both the 350 chargers were broken and the 150 was charging At 34 but went up to 90 eventually.

2. Ford app pass did not work consistently. I talked to EA and she said since Friday there have been MAJOR issues with ford pass. The total value of the 250 KWH is $77.50. I was spending more time trying to make it work. I turned off the plug and charge like she told me.

She taught me a much faster method. As I pull into the parking lot I go onto the EA app and click on the charger I want. I then swipe the EA symbol. By doing that it verifies my car info and account info. I plug in and sit in my car. On my app I can watch it charge and the rate it is charging. At the end I get a detailed report. Once I started doing it that way I could charge from 22 to 80 in 31-35 minutes at the 7-9 rate.

Thanks. I had no idea. All I know is that it cost me about $80 to drive the 1600 miles to Houston.
Wow. That’s about 1/3 the price as an ICE Mustang.

Sexy. ;) You should put a Florida souvenir plate on the front.
I’ll bet some place down here has a Florida plate with a Marlin on it!

You get the idea ;) With a printer and card stock you'd be set until the real ones get to you.

The value of the 250kw is actually up to $105 (.42*250), I'll likely get the 105 value out of mine.

What part of Florida? No troubles along the way?
Marco Island

And the matching "grabber blue" wash mitt :D
How's it going? None of those initial issues reared their ugly head again, I am guessing?
Marlin has been performing extremely well. We're encountering some minor issues I'll detail in another post:
  • Problems keeping the phone charging on the Qi (wireless) charging pad
  • walk-away lock has been unreliable
  • general PAAK irregularities

Perfect! If I only had a printer here!
