1) Did your Bolt come with the liners for the cup holders? My 2021 does not. I would swear my 2019 had a removable liner in the cup holder, just as there is a removable liner for the cavity where the aux/USB cord plugs in. Not a big deal. Just curious. I will order a liner though if available. They do make cleanup easier.

2) Unable to set the DAY when programming delayed charging. Today is TUE. Current delayed setting is WED. I tried to change to FRI. Setting won't save though. It will take the TIME setting, but not the Day of week setting. It seemed like it used to work on this car, but can't be 100%. Trying to ponder what conditions would cause that. I tried other days of week to no avail.

I see the "liners" are generally referred to as coasters. Or skid pads. Or inserts. I am 90% certain my 2019 had 'em. So perhaps like the rear door locks, the item was dropped. Not to be deterred, I found some GM coasters on Amazon for $4. There is a mapping to a set from WeatherTech for the Bolt, but they are too big. The diameter needed is 2.75".

When you did this, was it already past 9 AM on Tuesday? It seems to be working correctly. In the video, you changed the departure time setting on Wednesday from 7 AM to 8 AM, and that's what now appears on the screen.

Had a 2020 and currently have a 2021. I added my own liners. I have had a 2019 and 2017. Had to add liners to each of them.

On my 2021 bolt premiere I changed each day for departure charging and it works great
I set the whole week originally around 4 pm
and since May it. Has worked great
I didn't get the Cup liners either, I just put paper towels in the cup holders. It works for me

The time sets correctly. It is the day of week that is not sticking. I changed it from WED to FRI in the video, but it didn't stick.

Wait what? You have had 4 model years of this car? That's got to be a record.

I am recalling that my 2019 had a dealer installed package that included all-weather mats. The cup liners must have been part of that package. I liked them because they had the little tab on the side for e removal. The ones I just ordered don't have the tab. (Hope that is my biggest problem this week).

One thing you have to do is set your house as your normal charging site and your car will remember your settings
When you open your departure screen there should be a place that you could select as your house, and you should be good to go

I don't think that's how departure time charging works. You set a specific departure time for each day, and the Bolt will schedule it's charging to reach the target charge level on the next scheduled departure time.

So if today is Tuesday, the latest you can set the next departure time charge schedule is for 11:59 PM on Wednesday night. You won't be able to set a "schedule to charge by Friday morning" departure time on Tuesday.

Right. And indeed my car is setup that way. It knows when its home.

Bing, bing, bing. That must be it. They haven't allowed for the possibility that not everyone drives their car every day. I can live with that.

Didn’t I just see a thread where people were posting window stickers with ridiculously priced “dealer added options” and those cup holder liners were one of the things? Maybe you paid an extra $300 for them on your 2019 model?

I can't recall the exact amount, but yes, it was a forced overpriced dealer option that I was stuck with in order to get the configuration and color I wanted. Plus, the all-weather mats were immediately put in dry storage in favor of the far superior MAXpiders I purchased separately.

My 2021 Bolt LT didn't bring that either.
I haven't tried that yet.
By the way the infotainment on the bolt is mediocre with lack of options to interface with the car energy consumption and battery management system.

I bought the heavy duty floor mats from my Chevy dealers parts department
They are basically the same as weathertechs floor mats but a little cheaper
Chevy bolt is lasered on the front mats
I used my chevy points to get them
It sure beats those cheap rug style factory mats

Are you aware of Torque? A member here came up with a way to interface the app to the Bolt. Lots of BMS and tech info.... Chevrolet Bolt OBD2 PIDs
