I should add that I love the Audi, and I long to make it better. It’s not back seat criticism. I just wish there was a formal, crowd sourced mechanism for feeding back to the Audi product developers so that on the future Audis they can get this right for everyone.My biggest issue is that there’s only one charge level setting. So despite the various timers and location profiles, I still can’t programme a particular charge for a particular departure without setting the master default. And I don’t want to do that.
Porsche effortlessly dealt with this simple feature just by allowing the charge level setting in the programmer. Audi let you do everything else, such as climate temp so why on earth leave out the charge level on a charge programmer?
The Porsche isn’t perfect, but it’s significantly better IMHO or at least inarguably different than Audi - and I don’t understand why.
I’m a student of good user interface design and appreciate the nuances of good functional models and simplicity of flexible features vs complexity, so whether or not I can use another car is besides the point. But it may make me think twice about buying a similar system again.
