It serves as a reminder that you parked the car and didn't plug in. Might still be useful in some cases.It only appears when I'm getting into the car to go somewhere. Now if it checked and saw it was plugged in and put up an "Unplug to Drive" notice that would be mildly useful. I'm actually surprised, given how well thought out the rest of the instruments appear to be, that this got overlooked.
I'll have to check but since I have to trip over the charging cord to get to the driver's door I always unplug it before opening the door.My Gen 1 does say "fully charged" when I open the door and "charge cord connected" if I start it and won't let it get out of park if the cord isn't removed. Gen 2 is different in this regard?
It would be cool if it could download a cartoon or a MEME to show me when I complete my commute though...Don't notice it anymore, non-issue.
True, but I never get the Plug In message when stopping the car and turning off the engine. This is when it would be useful.I think of that message as just a way to help someone who is totally unfamiliar with the car know how to use it correctly. For instance, if someone got it as a loaner vehicle, rental car, fleet car, etc. They might think it is an ordinary ICE vehicle. This makes it obvious that there is another feature to take advantage of.
