Re: Is the i-Miev for us?

Be aware that the heater kills the range, much moreso than in an ICE car because an electric doesn't have all that waste heat to work from to begin with. I find the heated seat is very effective at keeping me warm, at a much lower battery drain, but it doesn't defog the windows. Still, it hasn't rea...

Re: EVs in Everyday Life

I saw my second Bolt in the wild today -- a white one, at the Laurel Amish Market.

(There were a bunch of Bolts at the Drive Electric Week event in Hyattsville on Saturday, which of course doesn't count, but I was kind of impressed by how many showed up.)

Re: Navigation system maps updates?

Any history on doing a group buy? Would that even work? I like the idea, but I have my doubts. I see that the kit includes a dongle as well as a disc. My guess is, the dongle gets tied to the VIN of the first car it's plugged into, and won't let you install it elsewhere. It really is a racket, this...

'Cmon Chevy, educate your (plentiful) dealerships and give them a product to sell! Can't educate them when they don't want to be educated, when they're disincentivized to become educated. "It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding ...

Re: EVs in Everyday Life

I ran across a Bolt yesterday; the first one I've seen in the wild. We were both adjacent to the Laurel Supercharger that neither of us can use, so I'm not counting that as "Seen at a charging station." :) A couple weeks ago, I saw my first i3 not at an EVSE, in Silver Spring. I'd just com...
