Hi Poul, thanks for your thoughts. Could you explain the 2nd skin comment as I don't understand what you mean. Thanks
It's an alternative set of screen layouts, so it affects appearance rather than function.  I use the alternative "skin" because it offers an analogue clock which I prefer.  The only other bits of the system I use are the radio, and occasionally a dumb phone hands-free, so I can't comment on other functions.

As I said I very seldom park for more than 2 hours. so 4 hours capacity would do me. There were larger capacity Power Banks available, but the one I chose gave sufficient capacity at a good price (18.99).

Right enough. That's the bit that says how well Tesla is doing now.

So fully charged it should last about 18 to 20 hours ?  says in Nextbase manual that the 3.7V  450mAh internal battery lasts about 30 minutes which gives 950mAh drain from power bank, although powerbank supplies power at more than 3.7 volts ( should a USB socket give 5 volts DC ).

These sort of devices usually use efficient DC-DC converter circuits, rather than simple voltage regulators which dissipate the excess voltage out as heat. You should hopefully be able to get a few more hours out of it, if the battery capacity is accurate.

Different take on valuation of tsla shares, apparently since 2010 tsla have never paid a dividend, and shares can be valued or downvalued on a whim of one financial institution -  tesla autopilot has been involved in quite a few accidents, so how they can say tesla has a commanding lead in autonomous car tech is beyond me, they refused to use lidar and other companies are closing in on them fast, plus tesla have laid off quite a few workers, which will affect their production and delivery schedules.

no the system will not stop working in the future, it is old but it is working. It look very much better if you change to the second skin. You can easy buy the car no need to be afraid it is a lovely car

Honda Jazz Mk3 2015 - 2020 / Android/infotainment worry
« Last post by Jazzman1 on Today at 04:51:55 PM »
Hello all
I am thinking very seriously about buying a 2nd hand mk 3 Jazz. It's an SE Navi manual. However, I'm worried about what I have read as regards the infotainment system and the Android operating system being obsolete. Does anyone know what this means in terms of the car infotainment in the future? Will the system just stop working at some in determinant time in the future? I'm no expert on these things so I may be worrying for little or no reason, but...

Many thanks for you help in advance Jazz folks...
