Re: 'E' gearbox mode resets to 'D' on restart

Hi, Not read this thread for a while, so apologies if this has already been mentioned. I use ECO all the time as I'm on the motorway a lot and what I have done to limit some faf is to set up the INDV setting to mimic ECO so I just switch between the two on start up. Not the greatest solution but on...

Re: wifi

Never come across it on any of my other cars with Sat nav. Guess it depends on whether the mfr has included it. It's been on all the VAG (Audi, VW, Skoda) car's I've had for as long as I've had sat nav Whether you believe it's of any use is another question. Google simply has vastly more data point...

Re: wifi

Was that a short term offer ? Still showing on the portal at £81 for both subscriptions. That is the reduced price isn't it? Originally it was in the region of £60+ for the Infotainment and £50+ for the Remote Access. I think the reduced prices were £40-something and £30-something which would tally...

Interestingly the Karoq sat nav warned me of a temporary road closure the other day and I wasn't aware that there is any connectivity, as there are no emergency call buttons on the SE L.
Could have been via TMC, the traffic system that works in the background via FM (as far as I understand it)

I agree, the price of the subscription doesn’t offer any value. I didn’t renew ours last July and I haven’t missed it.
Just so you're aware they dropped the prices by 50% in September...

Re: Condensation Issue in Headlights

Hi Akop.4040 I can't answer your questions about where the water is coming from or where any holes might be. I am using my "O" level GCE Physics knowledge from 1963 to state the basic facts. 1. You cannot have condensation without water vapour being present. 2. Water vapour condenses when it comes ...

Re: Switching data connection from SIM to phone (Bluetooth)

With respect, the SIM is just an access key that tells the mobile network who you are so it can decide whether to give the mobile device access. The fact that the SIM is physically located in your phone is pretty much irrelevant when you’re using RSAP - which is the point of it. But it’s a difficul...

Re: Switching data connection from SIM to phone (Bluetooth)

I know how rSAP works. My point was that where do you think the car's own WiFi hotspot that you've connected your phone to is getting it's Internet access from? That's right, the phone is connected by WiFi to the car which is in turn connected by Bluetooth (rSAP profile) to the SIM in, yes, your pho...

Re: Switching data connection from SIM to phone (Bluetooth)

You can get around your phone losing data when using RSAP by enabling the car’s WiFi hotspot, and then connecting your phone to the car WiFi hotspot. Why would you do that? You'd only have rSAP enabled to use your (phone) SIM's data connection. If your car's WiFI hotspot is providing a data connect...
