I am quite impressed with the freeway performance. Going 75, it still has plenty of power to accelerate. I climbed a few hills in the area, including a high speed

While not an exact measurement, I've done this particular run up the hill *ahem* in the left lane

You really have to start by city and work backwards, as when you start putting in a street address, it is quite difficult picking out the right street name if it is common one. If you pick the wrong one it will think the house number is invalid.
The charging timer is basically just our end only timer. I like the pre-climate only option. But you can't set more than one departure per day. The add button dims.
The map also gets acne!
I do not like this "virtual volume" business. As Tony mentioned it's brought up by touching the button in the upper right corner of the screen.
At some point, the car stopped estimating the time remaining. I think this was after some L1 charging.
And finally, lines at Costco today:
