Re: Range extending battery

The only cost effective would be using higher density Battery packs like the Tesla power modules, not Volt ones.

Re: IPhone problem with Apple Maps on Mylink

Try using a USB cable that only charges. If can't find one get a Lighter charger adapter or modify your cable leaving connected only the power lines

Re: Recommended Mechanic?

The best mechanic is noisiette123 in Quebec.
