App lets you charge on the cheap
Ford has announced that the MyFord Mobile app that goes along with the Focus Electric vehicle has launched. This is a cool app that interfaces with the Focus Electric via the cars embedded AT&T cellular modem. When the app is connected to the car the user can check the battery's charge state and set special go times.
A go time allows the driver to tell the car to be at a specific temperature at a specific time so the car can get the climate control correct while plugged into the outlet rather than using the battery pack. The app also allows the driver to charge the vehicle at off-peak times to save money. The app can be downloaded now for the iPhone.
