    Interestingly, there is a new version of the app (v1.20.0) out in the last day or so (at least on iOS anyway) and it has a whole new section for managing location based charging.

    It also has a new setting, that isnt in the car, which is an activation time for the location based charging.

    i.e. If the car is at this location at time X the rest of the settings (SoC, preferred times etc) are activated.

    The whole thing still doesnt work but my guess is that the app has been released first in advance of a new OTA update being sent to the car, which will fix it and get it in sync with the app features. That additional setting seems to be key to the whole location based charging.

    When will the car update come is still unknown but I bet its not long away since they have released the updates for the app.

    So now we get a whole new thread for every software update VW is coming up with and plenty of stuff still not working? 😂

    I guess Diess was honest and not far off the mark when he said last year that VW was 4 years behind Tesla. Looks like this gap is growing rather than VW catching up. Apologies, bit of Schadenfreude. I honestly hope and believe VW is getting better and better and that their brave jump into EV only will pay off. Plenty of other incumbents that are not so brave will be left behind and probably die.
