    Software update UK

    Hello John. Ours shows V1.0 even though the car has had two updates; one to deal with the Gridserve spark problem and the other to deal with the overheating 13amp charge cable. I am not sure but I believe that updates will be notified on the car's messaging system.

    GWM Ora responds to insurability woes with new battery scheme

    I was under the impression (based on comments on this forum and elsewhere) that the principle problem was that of lack of spares. This lack meant that a car could not be repaired after an accident and so had to be written off. We can only hope that GWM decides to ship adequate spares to...

    Self adhesive velcro strips?

    Insurance 03

    Yes, I know that. The object of my exercise was to get an idea of the premium that I would have to pay next August. I posted the result of my search just by way of nothing in particular. Please ignore my post.

    Insurance 03

    After my post last evening I did a "Compare the Market" exercise to see what sort of a shock I might be in for next August. The results are attached and my £800 estimate was not wide of the mark. Let's hope it stays that way!

    Insurance 03

    Are these quotes based on the “unknown car” principle (despite the Thatcham d/b entries by ORA UK) or is there a monumental rip off exercise going on? The Guardian reported recently that car insurance premiums had increased by about 33% in the UK but only 2% in France. We insured our Funky Cat...

    When will we get Apple CarPlay on the ORA CAT?

    ORA UK is organising the distribution of the two apps. I have asked ORA UK about this on a couple of occasions and the replies I received are posted above.

    Irish map

    Hello Garacio. So far as I can see Ireland is installed in my GPS/Sat Nav. I have just installed maps for France and Belgium and, remembering your original post, I entered Dublin in the search panel, the city appeared and I was invited to save the destination. Dublin is apparently 411kms (253...

    When will we get Apple CarPlay on the ORA CAT?

    Apple Car Play and Android Auto for the UK are in final beta testing. It won't be long; a little more patience is required!

    Jacking points and wheel nut torque

    I noticed that the traction battery voltage is 337v. That's just over half the voltage of a London Underground train!

    Mats

    Thanks Vic. The odd thing is that the mats supplied with our car and those you have ordered came/come with reinforced holes intended to fit over studs fitted to the floor. We have no studs!

    Jacking points and wheel nut torque

    I went to SpecSavers and can now see the jacking points!

    Jacking points and wheel nut torque

    That is very interesting Damian. Where did it come from? I could not see the jacking points on the diagrams; should I have gone to SpecSavers?

    Mats

    Ours came with mats trendily marked “First Edition” but that was last August!

    You could try self adhesive velcro strips.

    Insurance 03

    Thanks Knabil. So far as I can see this whole cock up has been caused by insurance companies failing to note and update their databases with the new name and details supplied by Ora UK (a division of the importing company based in Solihull) on 15 Jan 2024 by way of entries on the Thatcham...

    Insurance 03

    Many thanks.That's good news. Our car was sold as a Funky Cat last August and is registered at DVLA under that model name (what name is DVLA using currently) so I hope that when I come to re-insure our Funky Cat next August I am not told that there is no such car of that name!

    ORA 03 sat nav - does it show motorway lanes?

    Stuart, I am sorry to take so long to reply but the built in sat nav does show motorway lanes at junctions with an arrow indicating the lane to take (i noticed the other day driving on the M25). You can always use Waze on your phone held in a suction windscreen clamp.

    When will we get Apple CarPlay on the ORA CAT?

    Thanks. Another reason (if a reason is needed) to go to NZ. The testing and installation of CarPlay etc seems to be dealt with on a country by country basis and ORA NZ seems to have got its act together.

    Insurance 03

    I posted a comment on an ORA 03 advert on Instagram briefly summarising the posts on this forum about the difficulty in obtaining insurance. In reply ORA UK posted: "We are aware of the situation and are taking direct steps to improve consumer choice when it comes to insurance. We will continue...
