Re: Phase 5 update now available

Had a call from my dealership today, they’ve booked mine in for 19a update. I questioned the no updates to velars with air suspension on TOPix. She called me back after checking with the service dept. “It’s ok , it just means once 19a is applied you will get over the AIR updates.” Pretty sure there...

Re: Any one tried the S mode

Sorry guys.. This whole time I thought dynamic = sport!!!? I mean why else does dynamic pick up that fast??? So what you're saying is put it in dynamic then turn the dial to S and auto shifting... and off you go? Dynamic drive mode sharpens the throttle response, stiffens the dampers etc. S mode on...

Re: Sat nav traffic re-routing

The system seems to update routes on the fly but doesn't notify you once you are underway. Do you see the red lines on the roads indicating heavy traffic is being detected by the system?

Waze and Google maps do a better job of quick re-routing and telling you they are doing so.

Re: Apple CarPlay GPS issue

Just bumping for an update/fix for this issue. Thanks to a suggestion from another forum member in the Phase 5 thread, I did a factory reset of my phone and reinstalled all the applications from scratch (note, you literally have to reinstall everything from the app store, not from a backup which is ...

Re: Smartphone Pack

Incontrol apps were never stable for me. I was fortunately able to get the smartphone pack upgrade for free and CarPlay works much better. In addition to the music/radio/podcast apps, the maps programs are also great with CarPlay (although the built in navigation system is pretty good too and doesn’...

Other issue that I notice is Apple Car Play does not work if you start the engine with Remote app!
This is a known issue with software version 18C. Fixed in 18D, although apparently this version has been pulled due to other issues and we await 19A in the next month or so.

Re: Velar or not to Velar

Hello and welcome. These forums are often where people with issues with the car turn to, so you will see a majority of posts dealing with problems. No doubt there are issues that have not yet been ironed out that ruin the ownership experience for some people. I can only offer my own perspective. I h...

Re: Fase 5 actualización ya está disponible

After almost 1.5 years of frustration with Incontrol, I finally got 18D and CarPlay today. I can confirm it's massively better i.e. it works, music plays stably, maps work, Siri works when you press the steering wheel button and I can send text messages that way etc. Very happy! Also, my dealer did...

Re: V4 P250 vs. the V6 P380 and Park Assist Option

I would test drive both if possible. I have the P250 and it has more than enough power for my needs. I can merge or overtake quickly if needed and it has plenty of low end torque. It’s very brisk in Dynamic mode with the S gearbox setting. It also gets better gas mileage and is lighter than the V6. ...
