Don't get me wrong.. I love my i3.. but seriously the telemetry system at best is "somewhat" flawed, at worst it plainly sucks.
Yesterday I drove back to the city. I reset the trip-counter when I unplugged the car in Lake Arrowhead, I proceeded to do a slow climb to BigBear, had dinner (*unfortunately Stillwells restaurant is best in the snow tourist season). after dinner I did a slow climb to the ridge and then proceeded to re-coup charge on the way down the 18 to the 210... drafted a couple big-rigs on the way down the 210 to Hollywood.. and pulled off in SilverLake with 10% left on the charge.
HERE is the problem. Total range according to the odometer 126.7 miles since I unplugged the car. the REX was not used, *I DID start the rex in Silverlake to make it back to Hollywood.
But on my iRemote I get this BS. Distance last trip 102, thats about right from BigBear, electric distance driven 26 miles.. WTF.?
Thats simply so completely mind-numbingly WRONG.
Fun fact checks, here is the car in BigBear, a shot of the dash at the TOP of the ridge leaving BigBear, before I re-gen on the downhill.. and again in SilverLake, I could not have driven almost 90 miles without some re-gen.. but its been 126miles since I charged the car.. BMW whats not registering right?
