Re: To state the obvious, LONGER RANGE PLEASE

It's a ChAdeMO port mounted under the hood of the B that allows us to DC fast charge our B's. The other perk is that it lets you full charge the battery just like if you use the range extender button. So useful on longer road trips. If I remember correctly it's like 45 minutes from basically empty t...

Re: To state the obvious, LONGER RANGE PLEASE

Re: my 2014 B Class is a lemon, HUGE ripoff

Not sure what you are up to now, but you could try talking to these guys https://electrifiedgarage.com/

They are an independent EV shop that recently opened in Florida and have experience working on Teslas so might be able to help with your issue.l

Re: mbrace web app end-of-life

I just recently hit up MBUSA to ask about getting access to technical information so I can go it alone. Here is my email and their reply. I haven't gotten a chance to really figure out if the information I need is available using the referred resource. The crap part is this a pay to play resource, I...

Re: Is the range on map still functioning?

If you have one of the models with Apple Car Play then it doesn't really matter. I have a 2014 and they did not have that option. But for features in the car that require mbrace that is basically using a built in cellular device in the car that uses Verizon to provide connectivity to the car. Imagin...

Re: Is the range on map still functioning?

It would be nice if you could use your own phone hotspot to give internet service to the car. I wonder if that would be possible.. swap out the cellular device for a wifi device...

Re: How to get longer range in the winter

**Because she doesn't normally drive the B.. she drove 30 miles on the highway at 70 mph when coming to get me. My Wifey loves to drive my B250e, but doesn't get much opportunity. Did I mention she drives it fast? Our weekend errands together in the B250e usually end at a public EVSE! She says I dr...
