Learned and used more features...
I learned a few things I hadn't known and tried them out.
The best thing was learning how to do a forced reset on the guess-o-meter. After my high speed ~600 mile trip, I'm still only on my next charge, and the gom was showing a very discouraging distance to empty at 100% SOC of around 180 miles or so. I presume I would find that wasn't accurate as I drove that charge down, but it just felt bad.
Another poster had described the reset technique: turn on the electrical system (only), and depress the brake and accelerator together hard for about 15 seconds. I did it, and it showed 263 miles for the range, very briefly. Within 30 seconds or so, it showed 212. That was still low for near 100% charge, but much better. A short trip or two later I'm at a 92% SOC and showing 226 miles of range. That equates to a 245 range at 100% SOC, which seems a bit high. I'll track the mileage and see, and since I home charge at 50%, it doesn't matter a lot except psychologically to me. Still I liked that technique a lot.
I also just learned how the button at the end of the turn signal cycles through the displayed trip data on screen. It was slightly embarrassing not to know it, but now that I do it will be very useful.
I had known about the low power mode, but when I could have used it for better piece of mind on my 600 mile trip, I couldn't find it! I've since rediscovered it on one the second my EV charging imaging screens, so now I have access to it. Is that the only place where it's accessible?
Anyway, I'm now finally approaching almost full knowledge of the features set, as well as the quirk behavior that is contrary to the nominal functioning but not uncommon. It took longer than I thought it would, I must admit.
