    I have my 2017 advanced set up to charge by 7 am every morning. Is there something on the fob that will let me change it to charge now without getting in the car and selecting it.

    No fob switches, but you don't have to get in the car and select it. You can plug, unplug, and plugin again within a very short time. This will cancel the set schedule and start charging immediately. However, with the 2017 Advanced model, can you use the PRIME App to remotely start the charging from your phone? I don't have Advanced trim, so not sure fo this feature.

    Yup. Works every time I use it, even in the garage.

    Since you have the Prime Advanced trim you can use the remote app on your smartphone to adjust to schedule remotely or start charging immediately.

    Edit: sorry, didn't see that this was already mentioned

    If you have a 240v outlet near your Prime, throw your guess number into my Rob43 Christmas Giveaway thread.
