Thanks for weighing in. I'll keep monitoring range through the winter, but tough that the fall in New England was warmer than usual and my recall was performed in the middle of it, prior to the Thanksgiving Holiday. I actually have a screen grab from July of my estimated battery range at 100% (full) charge at 340 miles...contrasted with what I am seeing for the estimated range now. Tough to deal with, but could be worse. Range is still above the 258 EPA rated, but I will continue to watch. Also challenging, is now that I am working remotely 100% of the time, I hardly drive the car - just dropping the kids off at school and doing errands at night and on the weekends.I had the recall done a couple of weeks ago. The GOM gets reset, so you can't go by your initial range estimates. After a a couple weeks of driving it should be accurate again. I just did a charge to 96% a couple days ago, and my GOM range was back up to 470 kms, which would extrapolate to 490 kms (303 miles) at 100%. That was with the Climate Off button pushed. We are getting into winter here (Vancouver), so range is getting lower now. So in reality, I do not believe actual range was affected by this recall.
Also interesting is that there was no pause at 80% or 90% as some had indicated. The charge did really slow down at the very end (about 2.3 kW), but that was the same as before as well. I also use SoulEVspy to check on my individual battery cells, and they are all normal (of course).
It sounds like you're doing just fine. You still have the same battery you went in with. As coder says the battery's history has been reset and so the SoC and GoM will take a few days to get back to normal.... Tough to deal with, but could be worse. Range is still above the 258 EPA rated ... Also challenging, ... I hardly drive the car.
As you say, your vehicle has probably been sitting at the dealer with engine on for some time during update & checks. During this time your odometer remained unchanged. This will cause the GOM to reduce predicted range.... the only thing I noticed afterwards is the battery drained about 10% from when I pulled in. I'm assuming because they leave the car on for an hour+ when doing the update. Although unless the heating system was on I wouldn't expect it to drain that much.
Nothing clever. I set the limit to 90% then after it finishes change it to 100% and add 2.5 hours. Conveniently my portable EVSE adds exactly 2% per hour. What's as puzzling as missing such logical limit settings as 85% and 95% is that you can choose 10%.Kiwi, How do you do 95%? The car allows me to set this in 10% increments only. I can do 90% or 100%.
Their words rather than mine; certainly an incorrect use of the term. A few examples I could find quickly, noting that it's mostly those with problems that post messages in forums. Just a note on my last post, the cells mentioned are 60Ah, not 180Ah.Bricked?
Blurg. I'll put mine back on charge tonight and see if it does the 10 minute check. First time I got it back I checked that it seemed to do the check, 2nd time I checked it didnt look like it did it. That made me doubt the software update when I saw that.Not good.

Yeah I have been looking at the Ioniq-5 as my exit strategy but credibility is now an issue as you said, and all the things to risk on an all new skate design.I had a bad feeling about the software update from the getgo, because Hyundai never gave a clear explanation or root cause. All the information we had, or guessed as to what the heck did they actually fix was second hand / speculation although well reasoned .
The disturbing thing, they either do not know for sure, or won't say. Both are bad IMO. I think this time they will have to get to the bottom of this, and be open with us. A this point they are developing a credibility problem, at least with me.
