I stopped working on my own cars when I could no longer recognize anything under the hood.I bought a lift years ago and have surprised myself by doing jobs on my cars that I wouldn't have guessed I could. A good manual, the internet, and the occasional YouTube video are amazing. But now? Well what am I going to do with the lift? Bother.
Well, I can always use it to change the settings on the dampers and swap out a winter wheel set, right?
The P*1 app allowed preconditioning either by preset time, or just turn on for upto 15mins.Anyone know anything about preconditioning and whether it's possible via app while on wifi and/or cellular and charging/not charging?
If you're within range to unlock the car you should be within range to precondition.I think this will be standard on the phone app (due December). Not sure if it can be triggered by the key fob like you can with the Ampera though, i suspect not as it may not have the range.
I had hoped sooner than December. It's already getting cold enough some nights here in Norway, that starting pre-heating/conditioning without getting into the driver's seat would be useful.I think this will be standard on the phone app (due December).

This is not the kind of thing those of us waiting like to hear. I'm surprised they couldn't update your car OTA.I had mine to service today, for a minor software update to fix an issue with keys no longer working (I had to use the emergency key to get in, and then the backup fob reader in rear cupholder to disarm the alarm and drive the car). The technician said that a major software update was expected week 48, and that sounds like that timeframe too.
Unsure, but when the app comes you'll be able to do it via that.Can you ask Google to heat the car remotely?
😀 maybe not. But when Google works correctly, it should be able to distinguish between you and your son.Unsure, but when the app comes you'll be able to do it via that.
I know Google works from your car to your home (turn on lights and open garage doors etc...) but unclear if it works from home to car.
Personally I'm not sure I want my son asking Google stuff that could affect my car! 😂
