  1. Rivian ordering & waiting process summary - An observer's consolidation of evidence

    Solid summary. I do think the main way to move up in the R1S line is to call and email Rivian, particularly toward end of quarter, and tell them you can take delivery immediately. There are “unclaimed” cars at SCs for various reasons and I heard numerous stories at end of June about folks...
  2. How has the 2023.34.0 Update changed the ride of your Rivian? [Vote in poll]

    R1S owner. 21”. I like the changes a lot but there IS a bunch of bounce in soft AP now. My kids notice it’s much improved on all of the darn speed jumps in the area. I’d still prefer other OTA improvements liking make the back screen do something other than just be a monitor.
  3. Proximity and PAAK - Why can’t it work consistently?

    Is the tech behind PAAK unique to Rivian somehow? I ask because PAAK does not work consistently for me and it’s really frustrating. Love my R1S but feel like a bum standing by the door of my $80,000+ car and watching someone get into their Ford Fiesta with no issue! :-) It takes a solid 5+...
  4. Anyone charged at a Tesla Supercharging station?

    For those that have charged with the magic dock, any idea how much it cost? That would be instructive. I do believe Tesla will charge a lot more for other vehicles to charge vs Teslas and Teslas are not cheap right now at SCs. Last couple times I used an SC with my X, it was about $0.42/kw. I...
  5. How to update Rivian App from 2.1.0 to 2.2.0?

    You have to go to the App Store and “pull” it. I am sure it will push at some point.
  6. How to update Rivian App from 2.1.0 to 2.2.0?

    Update was released five hours ago for iOS. Hopefully this means OTA for trucks coming soon.
  7. R1S Config - When Can We Update to Max Pack?

    When Rivian allows. Likely, no heads up, it will just be posted.
  8. 2 weeks and 999 miles later in the Rivian R1S

    I have that same paint "chip" on my charger door, I think. The more I look at it though, the more I think it's intentional (it's also on the inside a bit - can't be seen when charger door is closed). It is odd though. I plan to ask service about it during my appointment at end of October...
  9. Software Update Coming: set drive mode in trip planner, 12v battery health notifications, manage calls with thumb on steering wheel

    I get it, I just think the “look at this feature” marketing piece is absurd. It should’ve been available day one, or sooner. And the 12V shouldn’t be an issue. That’s the one part of the car that really has little to do with being an EV…
  10. Software Update Coming: set drive mode in trip planner, 12v battery health notifications, manage calls with thumb on steering wheel

    I have to say it. Basically every “feature” in the update preview is a letdown: 1) 12V -just make a reliable electrical system. I do not want to have to monitor my 12V health. I shouldn’t have to do it often! 2) Trip Planner Driving Mode - the trip planner is awful. I can change the driving...
  11. Is the Model X now a better buy over R1S? (WARNING: NO ELON MUSK DISCUSSIONS)

    If you don’t need the third row, then for people moving, the X is the easy choice. However… The OP mentioned a “7 seater” need. The X third row is fairly useless except for younger kids. My R1S third row isn’t huge, but it’s got more space. Also, getting into the third row in the X is a huge...
  12. Is the Model X now a better buy over R1S? (WARNING: NO ELON MUSK DISCUSSIONS)

    I have an R1S and an X. The X doesn’t compare with respect to storage space. R1S has much more real, useable storage. Much better for road-trips, carpooling, etc. If storage matters, I’d take the R1S even at a premium. That said, kids do “climb” into R1S vs X. It’s high - even in kneel mode...
  13. Let's remove the Conserve Mode stigma

    Can someone submit the question to Rivian for their weekly responses on Reddit? Seems like they should be able to answer it. I don’t use conserve, but have turned it off and on at times just to test it and haven’t heard or felt anything. I DO use auto ride adjust because I use AP mode and...
  14. Finally.

    I thought it was $1,700 then they added it to some sort of off-road package and it can’t be bought separately any longer. Either way, I’ve got 21”s, so it’s unlikely to be used unless there’s something in the road! Wish I’d gone with 20”s…
  15. Rivian cost cutting suggestion: Lose the camp speaker

    I like the idea of adding it to the gear store. I’ve actually used the lantern part several times when we lost power, but haven’t used the speaker! my biggest complaint is it’s quirky. Sometimes it charges in dock, sometimes not. Sometimes it turns on with one push on button, often not, etc...
  16. For those few who have/had and R1S AND and R1T. Rear Seat room?

    I haven’t owned both but have sat in both. I didn’t measure, but back seat in S seemed to have more leg space. Mainly because I could push the seat back and recline - which I couldn’t do in the T. This means the third row folks would have less space, but I rarely use third row. Definitely more...
  17. R1S vs Hummer EV SUV size comparison side-by-side

    I, too, appreciate the hummer, but my R1S meets my needs better and the hummer markup is insanity. It also seems much wider.
  18. So are we giving up on Weathertech mats for 2nd row in R1S?

    I’ve heard LinerX is good per other posts. I’ve used weather tech forever but really like the Rivian mats, actually. They’re not too rubbery and they fit really well.
