    Which safety features are enabled when?

    I know this wasn't in your original list, but I do remember seeing some videos of owners complaining that Rivian won't let you drive unless the door is closed and the seat belt is buckled. This "safety feature" seems like it can be really annoying, as I'm sure everyone here has at least one time...

    3rd party dash cam

    Other brands to consider are: ThinkWare U1000 BlackVue DR900X-2CH VIOFO A129 Pro Duo Those are 4k UHD models, but those brands also carry lower resolutions if price is a concern. Also I would always recommend a two channel dashcam minimum. You never know if someone is going to come from the...

    Rivian Launching Boat *IN* Bear Lake Idaho - HILARIOUS!

    That's amazing! What a capable vehicle. No doubt in my mind a Rivian will just cruise through hurricane seaon street flooding!

    Steps - can we talk about steps

    I think about this a lot, especially that picture posted on My concern is really more for elderly people (i.e., parents) that may struggle getting in and out also. Hoping for "kneel mode" to help with this, if it ever comes out. Or a nice...

    Installing my Rivian spare tire (and kit) - experience writeup

    Thanks for sharing your experience. This picture terrifies me. Something about lifting and holding an 8,000lb truck with a jack like that gives me anxiety. Fortunately you were in a garage, but I couldn't imagine trying to do this on the shoulder of a busy freeway in bad weather.

    The Story Behind In-Vehicle Delivery App in Rivian Electric Delivery Van (EDV)

    I thought it was interesting to see the collaboration between Amazon and Rivian on the Electric Delivery Van. What I'm really hoping for is what ever "maps" and navigation the EDV uses gets shared with the consumer vehicles. Pretty neat monitoring systems are implemented also.

    Rivian and RJ feature on CBS

    What a good response to that bait question. I know its hard to avoid, but I wish people would talk more to Rivian as its own company rather than compare to Tesla all the time.

    R1T Network Traffic

    Great work finding out these details. Hopefully the software team can deliver a great experience over the life cycle of the vehicle.

    Center Console/Organizer

    Just saw this, how about a refrigerator? Designed just for Ford and GM for now. I might prefer a frunk sized one actually.

    Debadge Rivian R1T - for those curious to see what it looks like

    Nice look, did you use a heat gun, some thin wire, and then buff it out? Personally, I would do the same (R1S in 2023, lol), but try to get a hold of a spare "compass" logo and center it on the rear.

    R1S Delivery Update Email (June 30, 2022)

    Late to the party (?) but I received a 1st half 2023 notification also. Actually works out for me personally, I'm in no rush. More time also hopefully means more time to work out the software experience and quality control issues.

    Sizing Up the R1S : Official Rivian Feature. Explore our uncompromising sport utility vehicle from every angle.

    Riding one (edit: an R1T) in person recently, I kind of wish there was at least a hidden running board. Not for me, but I can imagine children, the elderly, or someone with physical constraints having a hard time. "Kneel Mode" being official would work too.

    Here's a look at the wireless charger coils on the center console.

    This picture reminds me of the Apple AirPower that never got released. Rumors say it got way too hot. I wonder if Rivian ran into the same engineering challenges?
