Re: Nice dashcam

Because the inner part of any bulletproof window is of polycarbonate which can be damaged by things add that to it. I'm no materials expert but the sticky pads for dashcam mounts and the wire clips (at least for my Blackvue) are 3M VHB pads, with 3M listing bonding polycarbonate to various substrat...

Re: Software Upgrades

It's a shame you can't have the car connect to WiFi when at home (and the router is in range) but when it's not have it connect using the installed SIM card (car modem internet or something). I think you have to switch manually.

Re: Data Sim Card v Phone Tethering

Could anyone get the Internet over Bluetooth feature to work? Everything else works fine for me and I've got a SIM card now so it's not as big a deal, just interested in what I might have been doing wrong. It looked like it connected OK but then didn't have access to the internet for updates etc. O...

Re: T5 - Start/Stop

Mine will often stop the engine when I come to stop, the auto brakes are applied (green A symbol), I lift my foot off the brake, the car doesn't move but the engine switches on again. Bit pointless really!

Re: Fuse Box - Permanent Live

Thanks for this Wedgie, this is really useful. I've got the active suspension so I'll have to do some testing for an alternative though a switch live might do me fine.

Was the rear seat difficult to remove?! Looks like a right chore!

Re: Seat stitching faults?

It looks like the stitching is being put under pressure when you’re sat in it. Do you have to put pressure on the surrounding area or move the seat to a weird position to see this or is it easily visible? I'm wondering if it's wear and tear like you suggest because the plastic is digging into it an...

Re: Fuse Box - Permanent Live

Contrary to what was said above, I managed to find both a switched and permanent fuse connection in the under seat fuse box which were live and did not have an existing fuses in place, so no danger of interfering with an existing circuit. I was a bit twitchy about this as an installer put in a Smar...

Re: Mysterious knocking/rattle

Maybe I have the same problem but a deep knocking sound coming from the back as soon as I press the brakes at very low speed. As if something was rolling in the boot. But obviously I have nothing there. I have taken my car for the first service and my dealer said there is nothing wrong. The sound d...

Re: Dash Cam

My installer conected it to the back of the 12v outlet in the centre console with no problems. Don't suppose he told you how to get to the back of the socket?? Looks quite a difficult thing to do to me... You could follow the installation instructions for the Integrated smartphone , it looks easy e...
