Re: Cupra Born Support in Home Assistant

In case anyone uses Home Assistant, there is now an early, but extremely functional custom integration available for the Cupra Born. This is in early test form, but a few of us have been running it for a few weeks now and it's working absolutely excellently. If you are interested, you can follow th...

Re: Software update w/ small improvements

Mine went through early evening yesterday but I couldn't see anything different in the shop. It asked me to sign in through the Cupra portal as I hadn't logged in for some time??? When I checked on updates a couple of hours later it showed 2. One was the shop and the other the digital manual. There ...

Re: First reasonoble length drive.... Hmm

No, I hate the voice thing. Seems such a convoluted method of getting somewhere. Maybe I will try again. I used Android Auto yesterday instead to find music. Whose idea was it that is pauses and shows a 'safety pause' loading bar every so often when looking for a track :roll: Yea, make my eyes stay...

Re: Full range

When heating or cooling the car, using air recirculation has a big positive impact - don't expend all that energy immediately heating or cooling the car then immediately dump it and heat/cool some more. Maintaining 22C in the cabin? That's toasty, 17C is plenty for me. If its a cold but sunny day, ...

Re: Cheap and easy wireless phone charger

To be honest, it doesn't affect the mat anyway at all. The coil is about 1mm think, so you can't notice it yet still powers the phone. Bear in mind that these coils fit into plastic holders more than a 2mm thick. I placed mine in the middle of the blanking plate, and powers my samsung fold 3 with a...

Re: Cheap and easy wireless phone charger

Hi Ice o
I do like this mod and it seems straight forward.
The rubber trim lays on top of the coil that must have some thickness so just wondered whether the trim sits down nicely where it should be.

Re: Hello! - Car finally arrives next week :)

Hi All, I have been following this forum for a few months now in readiness for my new car which is FINALLY coming next week. Once I take delivery and if it's not hammering down with rain I'll upload some pics. Have gone for a few extras including the panoramic room and the pack that includes the wi...

Re: Full range

My general rule is to stick to 80% and to avoid 100% charges apart from in the following situations: I have a long journey planned the following day and need the range I find a free charger (ain't noone going to pass up free electrons!) I've accidentally left it on 100% after buggering about with t...

Re: Full range

Thanks for the feedback 😀 What's your opinion on 100% charge vs the 80% the car tells you..believe its saves the battery life, but does it really I'm nearly 2 years into EVs now firstly with an ID3 and then my Born. The history of the charging has been a regular topic on both forums. On one hand yo...
