Does the ID.4 have a mechanical door key?

My Toyota RAV4 EV has one and it is handy at times:
- can lock FOB in car and take mechanical key if you will be swimming / sweating / getting wet
- Allows you to override the car's smarts in case you need to lock the car when it is on or something

It would be nice if the ID.4 had one.

Yes it does, it's build into the fob and is removable, but you need to remove a cover over the lock to access it.

Awesome, and thanks for the quick reply!
There is a Youtube video showing how to remove key from fob and how to access the lock on the door on the ID.4. I just don't remember where.

It's in German, but this video shows it pretty well (at about 58 seconds into the video):

Carwow’s review of the ID.4 shows the reviewer pulling up on the outside handle to manually open the door, which also reveals the key slot. I saw in another video review that pulling hard on the inside handle also opens the door manually. I hadn’t thought of this before, but it makes sense there would have to be a way to open the doors in case the electric latches failed, which could happen in an accident.

Is there anyway to force a refresh in Car-Net? I open the app and last status is from an hour ago.
I know the interface is different for the ID.4, but on my Golf, I can "pull down to refresh" (and there's even a little note at the top of the screen saying so). Even if the label isn't there for the ID.4, maybe it still works the same way.

The pull down to refresh thing works, only in the garage screen where you pick your VIN. Once you select the ID.4 ability to pull down to refresh is no longer present. Maddeningly.

I hope the VW software engineers are lurking here. Lots of ideas for OTA updates to make ID4 owners happier and fix bugs.
I've tried to turn on the light bars in the front and back manually during the day and the A/C switches on😮.

How do you delete any unwanted destinations?
You can't. The navigation system saves the last 25 destinations then pushes them out.
There's a paucity of information about the navigation system. My Jetta hybrid had a whole additional manual on all the functions available with the navigation, media, radio stations, car battery regeneration and usage and more with diagrams and pictures of all the options.
The ID4 manual is woefully incomplete. It's as if the technical writers didn't interface with the design/system engineers😟👎🙄.
IMO, there's more information on YouTube than in the owner's manual.

Basic No-Frill EVs? Or Must All EVs Be Rolling Computers?

Is the dealer supposed to provide the EA registration code? Mine was the first id4 galpin sold and they didn’t even know how to process the 1.5k CA instant rebate

When I bought mine the EV specialist gave it to me. She had it written on a scrap of paper.

How did the purchase process at Galpin go? I have a reservation with them and I have never dealt with them before?
