A better reminder that you forgot to start charging

A better reminder that you forgot to start charging

I really appreciate the concept behind the capability to remind you that you may have forgotten to start charging. Currently --- for those who may not know:
* The Volt knows whether you are charging or not
* The Volt knows the time of day.
* The Volt has e-mail capability and knows your e-mail address.
* (Optionally) If you are not charging at 7:00 PM it sends you an e-mail suggesting that you may want to plug in.

The problem is... if you are on the road at 7:00 PM you have no way to charge anyway. That message is pretty well a waste of time.

A better (perhaps additional) way would be to send you a message about 20 minutes after you arrive at "Home" or "Work" and have yet to plugged in.

The system already knows whether you are at Home or Work to enable optional higher-rate charging (12 Amp vs 8 Amp default). It seems to me that all of the tough capabilities are in place.
