Hello,
Thank you for your email.

I have attached the link below that you can use on your laptop or phone web browser.

https://charge.pod-point.com/
clicking on the map to a particular charger looks like it gives you the ability to start a charge via the internet, from your phone, or laptop if down at the charger your phone or laptop can access the net, without using the "app".
Never tried it. You will need to log in and set up an account like I did.

Little Zoe guide from Go Green Autos.

Havent seen the official maintenace schedules but if this is right it recommends changing coolant every 5 years or 90,000 miles, brake fluid every 4 Years or 72,000 miles, 12V battery every 3 Years, pollen filter every year or 18,000 miles.

Your Zoe :)
How's your first couple of weeks with the Zoe going Gibbo? Have you plugged it in at any public chargers so far?

Still sitting on the drive unused Neil, not in any hurry been doing other things and the C5's still going strong.
I've ordered a new mobile from John Lewis, should arrive in the next couple of days then I'll set about putting the app. on and get to putting the Zoe to work.
Wax polished the C5 on Saturday was going to do the Zoe as well but got rained off and it ain't stopped yet. :(

Got the Zoe off the drive yesterday, down to Tesco for a charge, 45 minutes to go from 25% to 98% and 84 miles range and for free. :)

Still waiting for the home charger and they're not responding to me asking for when, that's Pod-point through EDF, I'd guess though that it might be the grant application that's causing the dragging of their feet.

How did you activate the tesco charger Gibbo, your new phone, or some work around with a laptop/phoning them up?

With the new phone Neil, plugged in and it starts charging but you need to 'confirm' on the app within fifteen minutes or it stops and you have to reconnect and start again.

Well supported on the app and feeds back to the app all the where when and how much details.

I went to the Co-op charger in the village here first but it was occupied by a large 4x4 so continued on down to Tesco, quite surprised at how many people stood and stared at the car on the charger, must be new for them. :)

Now you have the phone it will be easier to faf about with Canze app and a suitable dongle should you desire. I think the app is free.

Good to here you and Zoe are creating a stir amongst the general public at Tesco :-D I enjoy the odd chat at the charging point.

Took the Zoe to the dealers yesterday for the cabin filter replacement shown as required on the dash screen "Replace in the next thirty days.", they did a full health check, everything ok except "Front suspension drop links inadequately sealed." Marked for 'future work.'

They washed it once ready, charged £44.00 all in.
I crossed the road and had me a Big Mac while they did it. :)

Sounds like an unexpectedly economical visit to the Dealers, and a nice touch washing the car :-D

Might not have been economical Neil if the Bstds at Gloucester council had their bus lane cameras in operation, I was a bit lost, could see the dealer's place on the opposite side of the maze of roundabouts, some Audi dickhead thought I was taking too long and blasted the horn at me so I moved right then saw that I was in a bus lane, quickly moved back out but you know my experiences with the Gloucester council money grabbers. :shock:

And yes Mick of course I had fries.......and tea. :)

So now I'm getting a bit of use out of it I'm missing the CD player which is absent, not used the new fangled infotainment set up before and the handbook is very vague, any tips would be welcome.
