Re: Recommended iPad holder?

There's really no need to feel for them. Each button sticks out at least a cm from the edge of the headrest. They're not hidden by any stretch of the imagination.

Re: Recommended iPad holder?

There's pictures on page 170 and 172 of the manual.

They are actually pretty big plastic buttons; you couldn't miss them.

Re: Hi all, new car on order.

I'm really happy with my RDesign T4 AWD but I have this feeling in the back my head that it's just the badge I've bought. In my opinion no amount of bells and whistles makes it a 40k car. It's a high 20s, early 30s in feel and quality and no amount of lane guidance tech makes it feel any better. As ...

Re: Hi all, new car on order.

Surely if it's OTR then it does take into account the road fund licence. You can't go on the road without the tax. Or am I missing something? EDIT: I've just looked it up! The price should include on-the-road costs such as delivery and numberplates but excludes the first year’s road tax and initial ...

Re: Wi-fi

In the context of the car what do you mean by facility, adopts, and server?

I have Volvo free 100Gb SIM installed and don't have issues connecting my iPad to the car's WiFi hotspot fed via the SIM.

Re: What have you just found out about your XC40.

I can confirm that in my XC40 today the lights set to Auto resulted in dipped beam for my journey home in dim'ish light conditions.

Re: What have you just found out about your XC40.

What i did was set up a really bright instrument/menu display, and pretty dim for night mode. This way i can see really good in very bright days (of which aren't many!) and it's dim enough not to distract when it's dark outside. The menu switching from day to night is a very good give-away regardin...
