    Regen reduction needs sound notification

    For a truck that makes so many noises, I'm amazed that I get no audio notification when the battery regen is reduced. This is arguably the only notification I need and it's extremely dangerous without. I drive with the expectation that I can one-pedal drive and cannot be surprised when...

    2023.2.3 software fixes trip total energy enabling accurate vampire drain calculation

    As many were aware, the previous software version (2022.47) severely miscalculated total energy to the point that it was reporting total energy usage as roughly half of what it should be. This bug seems to be fixed in 2023.2.3, which allows one to calculate how much the truck is losing to...

    If I'm using the portable charger in a place that doesn't have a 240v outlet, do I need to adjust the charge amperage in the energy settings or will the truck / portable charger automatically limit to circuit amperage?

    Most scratch resistant paint color?

    My R1T will be used pretty heavily off-road and will inevitably see some trail pinstriping early on. What color do folks think will be most resistant to scratches and/or hide scratches the best? My guesses would be either 1) silver 2) white or 3) limestone.

    Ocean coast interior after extended mule use

    The other day I drove past a mule parked so of course I stopped to check it out. It appeared to be a production-like le/adv ocean coast interior and the truck clearly had seen heavy usage: The wood paneling looked very faded, very dry/cracking, and almost peeling in places. Night & day in color...

    Meridian vs. standard sound system

    Now that pricing has reverted with choice of tonneau cover independent from trim level, the decision between Adventure and Explore for me really comes down to how much I value the sound system upgrade.
