Re: Sat Nav

Not a great need for sar nav (non pro) but I do notice at times the scrolling ceases and I have to move the screen by hand to "find"myself again. Is this a common finding or have I missed something?

Re: Rear break light

On the subject of autocomplete - some years ago Subaru sent out a celebration key fob to Impreza turbo owners- can't remember the event being celebrated. Embossed on this was the logo "Suburb". Few days later new fob plus grovelling letter from Subaru.
