So just another quick catch up of how its going with MMC Japan.

I sent off a detailed communication to them about 5 days ago about some of those drive battery items on the list and have not heard back from them yet. :( If I have not heard from them in a couple of days I will resend it (original may have got lost in the ether :? ) and just probably keep sending some newer queries as well. But I do not want to make them sick of hearing from me by asking too many questions or volunteering suggestions too quickly. Feels a bit like I am walking a fine line. ;) :roll:

For those of us with older PHEVs a great software update would be an EV-only mode option (e.g. via re-programming the Eco botton or an option in the MMCS).

It's nuts that the ICE starts just to provide cabin heat. I can just shut off the climate system to avoid engaging the ICE, but often I need it to keep the windows free from fog/frost.


If you hadn't written this I would have done. Agree completely.

Count me in for a reprogrammable Eco button, too.

I have heard from MMC Japan about my detailed technical communication and basically they have said it has been sent to the relevant department to be discussed. :D

Will now keep sending more communications.

Regards Trex.

1. The charging plug door doesn't lock like the petrol door. I dont think anyone can siphon your electricity (?) but more thinking of casual mindless vandals / EV haters. Now there are no key slots that's probably the most vulnerable point. Presumably not an issue in Japan ...
2. We have iPhones but dont use Siri and therefore can't use Apple Play. This seems to throw the console and our phones into a tailspin of trying to start Apple Play and failing. Eventually they connect and work OK (calls, music etc) but it is distracting. I want to just turn that feature off permanently.
3. Music will start playing seemingly by magic from a bluetooth connected device. I would expect to have to press play on either my device or the console first.
4. Touch screen seems a wasted opportunity, e.g. in audio modes you cant tap or slide the track progress bar to skip, you have to use tiny ineffective buttons.
5. Way too many physical buttons for the driver to play/be distracted by. With a big shiny touch screen, some could be shifted to screen-only control?
6. The display options for the driver (above the steering wheel) should be available on the big screen too. It could probably fit all the display modes on a single page? That would be my default display.

Ok folks,

I am heading towards the bottom of the list on page 1 of this thread ie a button's state to be remembered (or sticky) etc of queries, suggestions to be sent to MMC.

Everyone voted in the polls?

Do we want to give people more time?

Regards Trex.

I’d rather ask that all settings remain sticky (as they were, just before switching off). There could be an alternative “reset all” function to return them to Mitsubishi’s preferred initial state instead of the last one. Maybe a double-tap of the “power” button to achieve the alternative.
I find the clearing of the regenerative braking level as soon as you go into reverse, let alone switch off, rather disconcerting. Maybe there’s some kind safety consideration behind it?
