Might check if you can use a USB keyboard to type the missing character.

But it could also be a character escaping bug. Quote marks in user input are a classic (and therefore embarrassing) cause of bugs.

I spied the delivery guys staging about 10 minutes before our appointment just around the corner. They were giving the glass one last buff making sure everything was shiny.

First time seeing Rivian Blue up close and in person. It's not exactly what we expected from any photos but quite stunning. And sun, shadows, overcast are all a little different and amazing.

We had a little bit of paperwork to do. Wet signatures required for title application, power of attorney, and the trade-in title. They said they had to remove the plate from our trade-in, which seemed odd until I realized it's an IL transaction not a WA one.

We set up our apps and driver profiles. Found two minor bugs during the process. The first is some placeholder text on the range projection interface (it's using what appears to be placeholder text, not the actual installed wheel type). The second was a little more irksome. Our wifi password has an apostrophe -- a normal, non-directional apostrophe. But the pop-up keyboard only offers an opening quote shaped apostrophe. So it's not currently connected to wifi until I create it its own SSID as a temporary workaround. So there's that... In all fairness, these are minor things and the guys who were here took detailed notes and photos to report back and get it fixed.

Let's see... set up was pretty painless. Played with the screen a bit. The charging pad is fussy, especially with the camera bump on my iPhone. But without CarPlay, I'm pretty sure we'll be looking for some kind of vent/window/dash mount for the driver's phone anyways. Didn't play with USB connection of any phones and didn't really mess with music yet. Bluetooth implementation had contacts, music controls, etc. -- all the features you'd expect from Bluetooth packaged in a well-made UI. We did not enable Alexa.

We took it for a quick spin. The truck floats over the potholes in all purpose mode. Our test drive was in the rain, so today we got to actually gun it getting onto the highway. The giggle is involuntary. And apparently it was holding back 20% of the torque because we weren't in sport mode.

We took some delivery pictures and then the guys drove off in the FJ (only one of the two could drive stick -- good thing he was there :CWL:).

We'll figure out somewhere fun to take it this weekend.
Can you say more about the blue? What didn’t you expect?

I'm not good at describing colors ?

I feel like photos flatten or simplify the color -- it has more depth and character in person. In the afternoon sun, it was almost as if there were hints of green.

Photos just don't do it justice, and there's still room to be wowed when you see it up close.

Couldn't agree more!

These new delivery pics in blue are tremendous from all of you guys. In shade it seems to deepen and is spectacular, morphs a bit in indirect light, and then just blows up in sunlight. Have usually only seen that on metallics.

Also love the fact that Rivian is changing the ubiquitous "shades of grey" in the auto world.

Rivian Blue is a metallic paint.

This pic is shamelessly lifted from my husband's Reddit post. He got out the big camera and the calibration thingy. Turn off Night Shift because this is as close as it gets to real life.

I’m very happy to announce that my truck showed up today! Delivery process was super super easy. Took it around for a drive and it was amazing! Well worth the wait in every regard

Beautiful day here today. Not sure what's going on with the rear, didn't notice until this photo. Could just be lens distortion but I'm gonna check if it's just because the truck is laid out.

Wouldn't it be easy to just change your wifi password?

Couldn't help notice the charger is on the outside (instead of inside the garage). Aren't you worried that someone might charge off it when no one is there?
No, not something I've worried about at all. Pulling into someone's driveway is pretty bold. And if they do, they probably need that $1.25 of electricity pretty badly...

I installed the outdoor pedestals just a few months ago, but for 5 years before that, we've kept the plug from an in-garage charger outside strung under the door. Never had anyone pull into our driveway to steal power.
