Re: Qi wireless phone charger for center console

I don’t get it. If you are using carplay or android play - you need to be plugged in to USB and that charges anyway.
If the ‘play’ did’t need usb connection then bob on !

Re: Pathetic Software

Yes it is - great car - crappy software. Worked in IT for over 35 years and seen the best and the worst. This should never have passed testing.
Mines been in many times for software issues - due in again now - but sadly don’t expect much.

Re: No audio with incoming calls via ACP

Happens to me too. All too regularly. My car was in last week for the locking system being replaced. Whilst it was in I had a new evolve with the same entertainment system. It worked faultlessly. When I went to exchange back I showed their engineer the differences and told them politely to sort it o...

Re: Any updates on Carplay/AA?

My motor went in for some (more) work last week, including AdBlu top up. Had previously complained about the rubbish Bluetooth and usb connectivity and its dangers - so whilst it was in they upgraded to 18c including CarPlay. It’s a revelation. I can actually play my music and work Satnav etc withou...

Re: Any updates on Carplay/AA?

Interested to hear your views on the Brodit? I’ve always had one, but for the Velar seems a little invasive. Well I have had the latest Software version today here in the UK, and all seems to have gone well. I cannot test Android Auto, but can confirm Apple CarPlay seems to work and it does so very ...

Re: GAP Insurance on a PCP deal

Effectively it covers the gap between your insurance value and the cost of replacing old for new if the car is a write-off (for example). My year 1 Insurance is new for old so it isn’t needed then. But for years 2 and 3 it may be an idea as if the car is a total loss I may be in trouble as I have a ...
