just a quick update, I called the hotline and they "rebooted my account" which did nothing, and told me to wait 24 hours and see if it starts working, which also resulted in nothing. I called again this morning and the main guy working on a fix is out till Monday but they tell me they will call back when they have a fix, likely within a few days. I definitely passed on that a lot of folks seem to have all starting having the same issue at the same time.
Now that I have the L2 installed and have decided to just set the car to 80%, and since our utility is generally inexpensive and doesn't offer an off peak rate, I just leave it un-timed so it charges to 80% whenever plugged in. The top of with L2 is so much faster than L1 it really opens things up considerably. For me, this almost makes carwings irrelevant, other than idle curiosity. we have a mild climate and the need to warm or cool ahead of time hasn't really come up. I will enjoy having the carwings back but for now, having it on the fritz is a minor nuisance, but anoying non-the less as we just purchased the car.
my much bigger beef is that the charging station locator seems completely unreliable, mainly that it shows no stations where I know there are several. An L2 top off at a few convenient spots would virtually eliminate range anxiety for us and would make this car work for just about anybody.
