Preconditioning

Post by RJUK » Wed May 29, 2019 11:28 am

Hi folks,

I don't have my car yet, but was wondering what you can set to happen with preconditioning and what functions of the car can be controlled from the app?

Initially I was hoping that heated seats, windscreen and steering wheel could be part of the preconditioning routine, but then I saw a post on here yesterday which seemed to suggest otherwise...

Thanks! :D

Sorry but preconditioning only sets the climate control. Depends what you mean by preconditioning but I suspect you’re talking about that. By setting a departure time and plugging your car in it will also preheat the battery prior to departure. But for cabin preconditioning it just does climate control, not seats and steering wheel. Actually not quite true, as it also demists the windscreen.

I presume it demists the windscreen via the blowers though, rather than the electric heating in the screen itself?

The main reason you need heated seats is because it compensates for the time it takes the car to get warm.

So therefore not really an issue for preconditioning.

I added them for the get back to car after being out and and about (and not plugged in) in winter.

Sure, but wouldn't it be nice if during those icey winter mornings you could walk out, unplug the car and jump in to a warm seat, warm steering wheel and pre-cleared windscreen?

Would be nice and others do it (Tesla) but I wouldn't hold my breath. The API doesn't seem to support it and the mobile app doesn't either. Chances are they would have to update the vehicle software as well.

It’s real sad, and actually very strange, that they didn’t include front/rear heated windscreen with the precondition. I actually now need to preheat for 20-30 min, then get in my car and start the rear heated windscreen for about 10 minutes before I can drive away with clear sight.

I agree that it's a stupid omission. The heated seats too. I'd rather jump into the car with a warm seat than a hot cabin. Also, heating the seat uses less energy than heating the whole cabin.

I think this has been covered somewhere but I can’t find it. Does anyone have issues with the preheating and charge timer? I set mine to only charge in the morning for an hour but the car just starts charging after a few hours anyway? Anyone experience this?

Hello Sir,

What you are experiencing is the implementation of the way Jaguar manage battery charging.

You are able to set a "preferred charging period" in the car, which is likely to be totally ignored.

Jaguar has designed its charging strategy such that the battery will always be at a 100% SoC for any entered departure time. This can mean that battery charging will start at an unexpected time if the "prefered" charging time does not provide a 100% SoC.

If no departure time is set then the charging will begin straight away.

If you have an intelligent charger that you can set on/off times in the charger itself, then this can be used to control and limit charge times for the car. There is an issue with some earlier versions of the software in the I-Pace that this does not work with.
