Re: Boot liner

We cut boot mats for our vehicles ourselves in this material
Good quality, easy to find, very easy to do, and less than 20 euros per meter.

Re: Stubborn streaks on windscreen

I've been trying to get some stubborn marks off the windscreen since taking delivery in December. When the screen is dry you can't see anything, but as soon as it gets damp the streaks appear, and they're not subtle, stretching from the top where they're widest (the worst nearly 10cm wide), and thi...

Re: Blue dash warning

If the sign is a blue square with a car inside, it’s probably just an informative (or « Information ») traffic sign, according to the Straßenverkehrs-Ordnung (German Road Traffic Act) and the Katalog der Verkehrszeichen (Catalog of Traffic Signs), meaning Fast Traffic Highway (Motor vehicles capable...

Re: Spare wheel

No spare wheel, no spacesaver, no foam repair kit in my wife’s XC40 : she wouldn’t use any of those anyway. But she has VOC, as most of you have. So no problem whatsoever : use VOC and you will be helped.

Re: Map Update beyond 1326

The new V1333 downloaded to a memory stick occupies 2.72 GB. I think this is not much larger than previous updates but it seems it is too large for direct installation via the Sensus system. So the only alternative is via the USB port, isn’t it? I agree with Dermottdog that installation then takes ...

Re: Map Update beyond 1326

Just trying to help…. If downloading and installing the 2 GB map files for just NW Europe (or Western Europe as described here) indeed " takes ages " via USB stick, one can just as well use the USB stick to download and install the 52 GB map files for the whole of Europe : that « only » takes 3 hour...

Re: Map Update beyond 1326

There seems to be some confusion about downloading the Sensus Navigation maps, and about the time it takes to do it. Much depends on which map one downloads, of course . In my case, the maps of the Benelux (1 GB) and of France (4 GB) take only minutes to download and to install, whether one does th...

Re: Downloading apps to Sensus

Hi All I don't have any apps (e.g. spotify) downloaded to my XC40 PHEV and am struggling to understand what the steps are to do so. Can anyone advise how the wifi needs to be configured (car sim or via mobile phone - I use Apply CarPlay)? The manual seems a little vague to me and of course the deal...

With the new 2021 software system update I love the way that both driving mode and specific gear can be invoked with the voice control. To be able to say "Driving Mode: Dynamic" followed by "Gear Change: Three", is sensational.
It’s more than sensational. It’s miraculous.
