More software is on its way that will address some of your issues
My charger cords easily run through the openings in the front of the storage box, and the lid closes completely that way. But maybe your cords are much thicker than mine.Karmacomplainer said:But the charger must be plugged into the storage box. So your charging cable must be coming from underneath the cover of the storage box and it can't close this way.
Hi Ecodoc,Ecodoc said:The name of the OP says it all. And with 1 post and a Jr member I doubt they even own one. However, if they do: There are currently only 2000 Karmas. They are not for everyone, nor are they designed to be. Stop your whining. Give your car to someone who can appreciate it.
@Karmacomplainer: I don't think anyone would have taken exception to your post if you had simply stated the things you think are lacking and how they could be better. Instead, the way you phrase things is overly negative and attacking. Indeed, you seem to have registered an account here for the express purpose of maligning the Karma.Karmacomplainer said:Hi Ecodoc,Ecodoc said:The name of the OP says it all.

Thanks for your reply. If I didn't have a Karma I wouldn't know all these details. And what does the number of posts or the seniority in this forum have to do with my right to be critical? And although there are only 2000 Karma's, that's not a good excuses to release a car with so many problems.
I used to drive a Audi A8 and in every detail you could breathe quality. This certainly is not the case with the Karma.
Hmm I think FISKER did use or plan to use Tom Tom back in jan 2012Michael said:I think it would be great in future models if there were an iphone/pod dock near the cupholders. The cupholders soulution that porsche has on their cars is kind of neet and takes less space.
The storage box remindes me of the one i had in my lotus esprit V8, more like an jetfighter[hr]
I would defintely pay extra to upgrade the navsystem to someting else like tom tom
Hi Sigurd,Sigurd said:Karmacomplainer, any chance you're related to a guy in Austin, Texas (named Brian)? Just kidding. Anyway, I can relate to you. I am a perfectionist by nature and I have many times had a hard time getting all the enjoyment out of things (and relationships)\, because I would find the faults and they would bug me too much. Well, nothing is perfect. So I have learned to try to minimize or ignore the shortcomings and enjoy the rest. I'm not making excuses for what you have identified as they are real areas that can be improved, but if I focused too much on those, I couldn't enjoy the car as much as I do. I don't want that to happen to you either.
My two major problem with the Nav system are: (i) the data entry sequence for entering an address or POI and all the redundant confirmations; and (ii) the inability to control the Nav lady's volume independently of the Music volume. If they just changed those two things, I would be pretty happy with the NAV system. But in fairness, whenever I have used it for actual navigation, it has gotten me where I needed to go without any problems.SoCalGuy said:I'll say it - I think I've gotten used to the quirks in the Karma. I'm on 6.28, which has very few bugs (every now and then, the rear view camera will gray out), and for the first time, I can start the car and go without having to wait a few minutes for the Karma to fully boot up. The one big frustration (outside of the sluggish touchscreen) is the Nav system - and I've resigned myself to knowing that it will be this way for at least the near-term until Fisker steps up and gives us a much better app. But even as terrible as it is, I've been using it recently and it gets me to where I need to go (it usually gives me too much instruction "slight left" "slight right" when the road is basically straight).
