    What We Know - Collecting Information Directly From Rivian

    Totally agree. It’s as much about the content as it is the apps themselves. Maybe Rivian has a great music option, but if I’ve invested tons of time in Pandora or Spotify building playlists and having it learn my preference, I’d be back to square one if I couldn’t access those apps. Same goes...

    The One Dealbreakers Thread to Rule Them All

    Not to be nit picky, but I don’t necessary agree with this statement. A deal breaker is anything that will prevent me from doing a deal with you. If you already have deal, and then don’t deliver, then that’s breach. There’s tons of stuff on the survey list that have never been promised or...

    I hope Rivian can eventually target more middle class consumers

    It has to happen eventually. Roads are paid for with taxes on gasoline. If you’re driving an EV, you’re using and causing wear on those roads without paying your fair share for them. So to me it’s really a fairness issue. Note that some states (NC in particular) already charge EV owners a...

    Looks like the skis are just thrown in the truck bed and left hanging out the back of the tailgate. Would have been a great opportunity to show off that fancy rack system they keep,talking about... I’m assuming the photo is pretty recent since we just got a huge dump in the Rockies on Friday...

    paddle shifters yes or no?

    Tesla’s do, but it’s based on the amount of regen being used. You can see on the image of the car on the screen when the brake lights are activated, so much easier than trying to see the lights themselves in the mirrors.

    The One Dealbreakers Thread to Rule Them All

    No deal breakers for me right now. Biggest concern is timing issues on build out of high speed charging (especially in WY). 400 mile battery would make that less of an issue, but I’d actually prefer the 300 mile battery with a faster buildout of charges on the current black hole areas...

    paddle shifters yes or no?

    No disrespect to anyone, but it makes me chuckle to think of a car with no gears having “shifters” at all. But I can see that if they are used to control regen braking, they would sort of act like downshift/up shifting to control your speed going done hills or rolling to a stop. Learning to...

    Electrify America charging issues - More RAN stations because I don't want to deal with this nonsense.

    I agree. My current situation puts me in that category of people where home charging is problematic (I currently live in a condo and putting a charger in the garage is challenging, but not impossible). I have a public charging station a mile away, though, which is where I usually change my...

    Agree. Not to mention the irritating pauses, gaps, etc. Drives me nuts!

    Electrify America charging issues - More RAN stations because I don't want to deal with this nonsense.

    I think one very good and valid point made by AJ in this thread is the different mindset of charging an EV vs. gassing up an ICE. When gassing up, most people are going to want to fill it full. With an EV, it’s more about taking on just enough to get to the next destination with a charger...

    Roadside Assistance questions

    I’d argue that your consistent condescending tone absolutely comes across as “patronizing” and that your attitude is that it’s your ordained duty to “school” us pedestrians since you so obviously possess superior intelligence to anyone else on this forum. You must have had a horrible childhood.

    What We Know - Collecting Information Directly From Rivian

    What I’d really like is for Apple CarPlay to be an app that is provided within the Rivian infotainment system. If I select that, then it allows icons on the infortainment to run apps on my phone. Things like Pandora or Spotify, Waze, etc. Users have lots of content in these apps and having...

    No, “adding” is that last thing you should be doing. Less is more. Here, I’ll hand you your response...

    Electrify America charging issues - More RAN stations because I don't want to deal with this nonsense.

    Perhaps it’s because you’re not doing an effective job of explaining things in your diatribes. Or it could also be that your tone tends to be that of an arrogant prick so people just don’t read what you write. Sorry Professor AJ, carry on...
