  1. Solar Powered Volt

    Chevy Volt General Discussion, News, and Events
    Has anyone tried using a solar array to charge their Volt? I'm thinking if 4 panels or so can charge my Volt a coupla times a week I might try it. I'm figuring on using an inverter to provide 120 volt ac. But I suspect, that since the amps would vary (0 at night for example) that it may...
  2. Location-Based Plug-In Notifications

    Suggestions for GM - Chevy Volt
    I often forget to plug in at home, I wish it would text me a reminder a few minutes after I park at my "home" location and am not plugged in. This would be a lot more useful than the time-of-day reminder, which goes off every night when I'm travelling or if I'm out having a late dinner. If...

    Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)

  6. Internet for the Volt: Can you use your home's?

    Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    I read that, like the Tesla, the Volt seems to need an internet connection to download updates, send feedback data, etc. Suppose I don't want to pay for OnStar internet service - can you have your Volt connect to your home's wifi while parked to perform the updates etc? I've seen it discussed...
  7. Strange Weather Alerts

    Problems, Driver Warnings or DTCs - Chevy Volt
    Whenever I get a Weather Alert on my Nav screen, I go to see what's up. Each time, it contains warnings about "Cecil County", which I now have discovered is one state away from where I live and drive in Pennsylvania. I finally figured out what must be going on. I bought my Volt out of state...
