Honestly I think in the case of longer trips the Rivian Nav finds the shortest route and then looks for chargers along it. Just a hunch.A little bug I just noticed is that the Nav seems to think that there aren't chargers available along some routes, but if you search for a shorter distance along the same route it will find them. For example: Seattle to San Fran it doesn't recognize any chargers and says I'd run out of energy south of Portland. But if navigate to Salem, it finds and adds a chargers in Portland. It doesn't seem to be an issue with distance either, as it fails Seattle to Glacier, but works with Seattle to Boise.
Anyone else notice this? Software 2022.15.0.
Right, but even if the shorter route has chargers, it doesn't seem to pick them up in some instances. The Seattle to SF was still routing along I5. Just curious how wide spread it may be.Honestly I think in the case of longer trips the Rivian Nav finds the shortest route and then looks for chargers along it. Just a hunch.
For example when I was in Flagstaff I was trying to have it navigate me back to Portland and it showed me the fastest route and gave me a warning “There are not many fast chargers along this route”. If that‘s the case not sure how I got there in the first place
Another example when going from San Francisco to Sandy it wanted me to take 97 and hit obscure charging spots in Klamath Falls and Madras rather than just taking i5 and a string of EA chargers back to Portland.
Funny you mention this. When I was picking up my R1T last week, the employee who was working with me recommended against using Conserve regularly. He said one of their managers drove in Conserve almost exclusively (no charger at home) and didn't rotate at 5,000 miles. By 10,000 the front tires were significantly more worn than the rear.Also if you use conserve. I’m at nearly 5k miles and I am considering a rotation.
The S-1 had said they anticipate 5500 in revenue from membership. With first year free and lifetime of vehicle stated to be 10 years - would estimate that at S-1 time, they thought it would be roughly 500/yearHave you heard about the membership costs? What it currently provides and will in the future. Is it free for a year, how much will cost in the future?
RJ said in a tweet or Instagram reply that a dog mode will be added to leave the HVAC on when leaving the vehicle. I hope it’s a simple as Tesla’s.Is it possible to leave the hvac system running while you leave for vehicle for a short period of time? If so how? The app, or center console? Thanks!
(musing aloud here no judgement to you, you just got me thinking a lot)RJ said in a tweet or Instagram reply that a dog mode will be added to leave the HVAC on when leaving the vehicle. I hope it’s a simple as Tesla’s.
Not having to come up with the idea and design the implementation logic really saves a lot of time.(musing aloud here no judgement to you, you just got me thinking a lot)
While I really hope it is implemented s00n (before my max pack order delivery next year)
I question sometimes how realistic some people are with feature timeline expectations and the mental gymnastics when comparing to Tesla
if my google-fu is correct Dog mode was released early 2019.
Even now, they are just barely suggesting in an upcoming (or very recent) update that you can activate from the app.
That means it took at least 7 years (if you start from model S, the flagship tesla launch) before dog mode was introduced.
And it'll be/ has been ~3 years to make dog mode app integrated.
Again, I am really hopeful for rapid integration but It'll be entertaining to see how a truck that has been available less than a a year is getting/will get dunked on for missing a "key" feature
(and then once it is available, if it doesn't have parity with Tesla options/ app support) how many will talk about how unacceptable it is and how Rivian is so poorly managed
(hopefully we can get another call to fire the CEO over it )
huh?Not having to come up with the idea and design the implementation logic really saves a lot of time.
