Autopilot saved our lives

Basic Autopilot In a rush, I left my electric razor and Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine at home. In a world of disposables, the razor was easily fixed (Barbasol still tastes crappy) but a CPAP is not an off the shelf item. Used to treat sleep apnea, it ensures my sleep is not int...

Re: Benchmarks: 2014 BMW i3-REx and Standard Range Plus Model 3

Can you also do benchmark of the regen ? When I get the GPS mouse. I'll have to weigh both vehicles to get their mass and then track the slow-down from say 70 mph to 10 mph. The change in kinetic energy will be what was regenerated. Actually I should be able to do the calculations on the regenerati...

Re: The spam here is insane!

Since they were hawking false documents, perhaps we should bought an arrest warrant for them?

Re: Failed Emission Test

Thank you! A side question, do you know the maximum amp rating of the traction battery-to-12V battery? The reason I ask is my first Prius modification was to install a 1.1 kW, 12V-to-110VAC inverter. Testing revealed it could draw ~70A before we saw a 12V dip. We used it as our emergency generator f...

. . . the existing registration info is recorded/stored/held in a solid-state memory chip, similar to what is in a thumb drive. . . .
Is the memory chip part of the battery or something part of the car?

Thanks,

Re: Failed Emission Test

One caution about disconnecting the 12V battery. I've not done this, yet, so I'm only sharing what I've read here. There are reports that changing a 12V battery requires pairing it with the car.

Re: Benchmarks: 2014 BMW i3-REx and Standard Range Plus Model 3

Both cars have a 'hold' mode that I find quite useful on hills and slopes. Brake to a stop and cars remain fixed even with foot off brake and pressing the accelerator moves the cars out smartly.

Re: The spam here is insane!

Speculation on my part, I wonder if the oriental font could be converted to "SPACE"? In effect, making these SPAM posting into blanks.

Re: Has anyone benchmarked the three driving modes?
