Re: 20000 km without problems

Another one here past 20,000km! 1920kWh measured just before the charger, I do quite a bit of public charging which is free here in Ireland until December 2016 (we have just over 2000 7kW+ chargers and rapids every 25km on all major routes, not bad for a small country). No PV here as we get no feed-...

Where on the windscreen did you install the camera? I'm having trouble finding a stop that's out of the way and not blocked by the ACC camera.

In fact a clip above each visor. I keep my UK cards in the passenger clip and my Irish card in the driver's side.

Re: Switched 12 volt connection

Keep in mind that the 12vdc battery isn't very large, and every watt going into keeping it charged so the computers will continue to run and your lights, fans, etc. will work takes away from your max range.

Re: Snap-in USB Smartphone adapter for Google Nexus 5 or 6?

Re: Hack Traffic Jam Assist to restore self steering in USA?

Outside of NA an i3 with Active Cruise Control will self-steer up to 25mph. Actually the limit for the lane-keeping on my i3 is 60km/h which according to google is 38mph. It's quite a handy feature actually.... ACC keeps to max 60km/h if the traffic speeds up (and sounds an alarm after 5 seconds) b...
