Andoroid Auto - In a word - SO WORTH IT!

Got the email from Chevy that the Android Auto update is finally available for my 2016 Volt, and it does exactly what I expected!

I also had a much needed ECU update for the engine. The ER mode is MUCH better now. Before it was clunky for some reason, but now it's much better. I'm hoping my ER MPG improves as well

I could really care less about the instrumentation personally. I would have preferred dials for cold/hot and fan speed.  Heck, I would like a dial for normal/sport/mountain/hold. In fact, I would have been good with those three dials and putting everything else to the touch screen.

Just got done attending a local Volt Clinic, thanks to Courtesy Chevrolet. We got to talk to electrification engineers from Detroit and talk their ears off with suggestions. Part of the tour was to show up the service department where they had a battery and transmission removed for you to walk around and see.

According to Pike Research, almost 200,000 plug-in electric cars and trucks equipped with vehicle-to-building (V2B) technology will be sold through 2020. The company said that from 2012 to 2020, investment in that space will total $279 million.

That’s a lot of money. V2B and its vehicle-to-grid (V2G) cousin show a lot of promise, even if not a lot of commercial application yet. Some years ago, in California, I watched an electric meter spin back as the battery pack in a Google-sponsored Toyota Prius returned power to the grid. The company teamed up on V2G with Pacific Gas & Electric, which remains interested in it.
