Re: Wireless Charging Solution

For me its more because I charge my phone in the car but am often in and out of it and the faff of plugging it in is something that i want to avoid if possible!

Re: Boot Space

We can fit bags, kids scooters and a black labrador in the boot.

Loads of space!

Wireless Charging Solution

I'm due a new phone in the next month or so and will have wireless charging, when i spec'd my XC40 I didnt add in the wireless charging pad! Thinking i can just plug in a wireless charging pad to the USB and et voila its done, anyone else done this/any recomendations for charging pads that fit nicely?

Re: Parking Climate

Having had a few colder mornings now i am finding that giving the remote start 5mins to run before getting on the car is warm enough now, not ideal as it won't work the opposite way in the summer when car is like a sauna

Re: Parking Climate

When I did mine the windows cleared and seats heated but the fans didn’t come on.

Surely with engine running like normal there is no reason the fans shouldn’t work?

It was one of the major factors in me getting an auto!!

Re: Parking Climate

Ah brilliant Thankyou.

How do you program what needs to come on when you start the car?

Parking Climate

With the days now getting colder (in the UK!) I've tried to set the parking climate from the app so car is nice warm etc when i get in it but it isnt working, anyone had similar or am i being a plank and missing something obvious?

Remote start works, just not the parking climate.

Car internet connection

Only got my T4 R-Design last week but have finally got round to trying to connect it to the internet via my phones hotspot, but when connected nothing will load.

Any ideas on what I may have missed on setting it up?
