Re: How to get the app to work?

I don't think you can 'force a sync', you just have to sit it out and it's usually back within a couple of days. I've had it drop out a few times although it does seem to be getting better recently.

Re: Optimum speed using Rex for very long journey

This is quite an interesting infographic looking at something similar with the Tesla (i.e. what speed to drive at on a long journey for fastest result). They tried 3 speeds and the middle speed was best. The i3 was in there too but obviously has to charge a lot more so total time was large in compar...

Re: Optimum speed using Rex for very long journey

Now that's a good question :)

I haven't done enough running with the REx on to figure out the mpg's at the different speeds. I do know that 75mph seems to be the magic number for me where the battery will slowly start to deplete (generally flat roads, warm, dry).

I was in Durham last weekend for a few hours (parked in Claypath) but didn't see any i3's although I did see a solar orange one in Cullercoats a few weeks ago.

Re: Adaptive Cruise Control - any good?

Hi Paul (& welcome), I'm a big fan of the ACC and despite it not being 'EV specific' I'd say it's my favourite feature of my i3. It's transformed how I drive by so much that I doubt I'll buy another new car without it. I have it turned on for the majority of my driving. Yes, if you want to enjoy you...

Re: Delayed Charging mode.

My delayed timer is inconsistent too and often the charging is starting too early. I have the 'Off-peak tariff' set for a 7 hour period overnight which is plenty of time to allow a full charge but it's regularly starting up to 90 mins early but not every time so I can't figure it out. It does the sa...

Re: Likes and Dislikes

Interesting description of hill hold Tom. I don't find it engages automatically, what do other EU owners think after reading Tom's description? Mine engages automatically but it has changed how it works following a software update. Originally it would auto-engage, then after about 2 or 3 seconds it...

Re: 30 amp charging rate - car set to low

I've just checked again to make sure. It was reading 4.5kW, 19.1A, 237V (charging unit is the BMWi wallbox).
