Percent SOC display somewhere?

I've searched various threads but can't find an answer to this.
Also been through all the configuration screens and can't seem to find what I want, either.

Is there some display mode that shows the percent SOC as an actual number or percent and not just the graphic representations?
I would really like to see a number, not just the "green bars" or estimated distances left.
On the dashboard or media center; I haven't been able to find a way.

I suspect I can run MyChevrolet under CarPlay and see it that way but that seems like a work around.

Sorry if this answer is: a) obvious, b) answered many times before.

mychevrolet charge status is expressed as a percent. Under vehicle status, as you suspected. I check it now and then out of curiosity, since I set my car to charge to 70 percent. It's often somewhere /around/ that, and never actually 70 percent.

Currently, the app thinks it is at 65 percent after a complete charge.

Weird number.

negative. the 20 bars at 5% increments is it. or 20 bars at 3kWhr each if you like thinking of it that way.

OK, Thanks.
I would love to have a big old number on the screen just below the MPH/KPH.
Not that important for my city activities but as I venture out on a long drive it would give me something to obsess over.

You know what would be cool, though I realize completely inappropriate for the typical driver, would be an instantaneous range indicator. Given the current SoC, the current power draw, and speed, how many miles can it go. Also display an instantaneous minutes of battery remaining.

Not very useful most of the time, but I'd get a kick out of looking at that stuff.

Give me absolute safety, or give me death!

Is that not exactly what the lower left MIN number is on the guessometer? Aren't we all looking at it as the worst case, if we continue to drive in the same manner, at the same speed? And that, also, if the yellow streaming line at the edge is dipping down heavily, we are going to end up worse than the earlier projected MIN?

I've been here. I've been there. And I've been in-between.

That would not be the MIN, as your instantaneous readout when stopped would show 0 miles of range remaining, and many, many minutes of battery.

This is the only solution I know of. Works ok for me as I always plug my phone in.
