Tunnel showing on SatNav screen

I've had my car for 2 years but until this week never driven it in a long tunnel. The other day I was driving to Liverpool via the Mersey Tunnel. The screen changed from a map to the view of a tunnel (with overhead lights too). I though that it was pretty cool as somebody would have had to programme...

If you go for 235/40R19 on the front (1.2% difference, so within the 1.5% max), you can have Vredestein Quatrac 5's on both the front and rear.
Excellent tyres. Highly rated in many reviews. I recently put a set on my wif'se Rav4.

Re: Instrument lights not dimming

When driving in the dark and you adjust the interior light brightness. It works on ALL interior lights i.e. Dashboard, Infotainment panel, Instrument panel and dials, Door controls, Steering wheel. Basically everything that glows in the dark.

Re: Automatic Gear Oil Change

My previous drive was a Rangerover 2003 TD6. I bought it when it was 7 years old. I joined a forum as I wanted to find out as much about the car as I could. The car was originally sold with "filled for life" auto gearbox. However it became apparent that many gearboxes were failing at around 100,000 ...

Re: Incontrol journey fault?

The frustrating thing about the journeys going off line occasionally, is that whilst it is handy to keep a track of your journeys, more importantly is the security aspect. If the car's location is lost, what happens if the car is stolen? Can it still be tracked? This is something that many owners pa...

Re: Sat Nav

You can have it updated to the latest routes, but it will cost about £90. For less than that money you can get a phone app that is kept up to date. Some of the apps can be shown on the car's screen too using Jaguar Apps. If you want to try that route I am experimenting with the 2 app options that wi...

Mine is still showing where I parked on Tuesday evening. Tuesday's journey is now showing though, but only to where I drove to.

Re: Bluetooth and InControl Apps. Probably a silly question.

Thank you for that. You are welcome. The idea is that if you ever pay for an app, you can delete it to make space on your phone and download it again free of charge. Free apps are handled in the same way. Also if you get another Apple product such as an iPad or whatever. As long as you use the same...
