Frosty Mornings

Hi all
Just a quick one learnt the hard way but i'm sure most will already know, on frosty nights don't forget to turn off the auto wipers, they will turn on as soon ignition is turned on and destroy your blades on the ice. Thumbs Up

with all the cleaverness the disco has i can't understand why they can't link the software with the frost symbol so it asks you to confirm or something in auto mode before ripping blades off Confused

Same could be said for linking the sunroof with the rain sensors!

I know! What's that about?!? RDS, GPS, and DAB all carry time signals but the LR head units seem incapable of using it. Evil or Very Mad

This car was designed almost 15 years ago, that's way to advanced for then!!

Oh hang on, Vauxhalls had that in the last century. Whistle

United Kingdom 2007 Discovery 3 TDV6 HSE Auto Java BlackDiscovery 3

I had a Ford Focus C-Max brand new in 2004, which had a slightly earlier version of the touch-screen nav that is in the D3 and can confirm that also failed miserably to get the time right. It was a bone of contention for many Ford owners, as it ignored RDS & GPS.

My current 2014 A6 allows me to set the time to sync with GPS but previous Audis seemed to ignore RDS too... I think its a more common fault than you realise.
 Cheers,

Gareth

Not a problem on mine, I've put the BlackVue behind the mirror, just under the rain sensor & it never freezes there now, there's always a little clear area around the camera. The camera doesn't feel warm, but it must be just enough.
