Took her out to play today on German autobahn, got to 135 MPH and still going up slowly before I backed it off, did not do much for fuel consumption, however if I cruise around 70 MPH she shows 54.5 MPG over an hours average..still happy

Tech always has a learning curve, give it some time/practice. I personally hate the I-drive system, and made sure to get my car without it.

I think the i drive completes the car, but it is expensive. I have been playing with Route Planner on the Laptop and I am supposed to be able to send my chosen route to the car same as I can with a simple destination, (rather than a more complex route), but so far can only save to a USB stick for manual tranfer, which I guess must be done through the USB port in the glove box ! but a nice trip planned round the Eifel National park in Germany this weekend, the roads look great on Goggle earth...

Came back to the UK for the Queens Diamond Weekend, 4 adults in the car and baggage. The girls sat in the back and commented that there was plenty of leg room so need to move front seats forward, then they fell asleep for the 3 hour drive to the ferry. Says lots about the car in my book.

Hi,
For the nght mode on the Sat Nav I programmed this into the 1 button so I can change between night and day mode. I have the 2 button set to random mode for the music, but they are the only 2 thing I've found that I've needed so far.
Anybody got any other suggestions?

I have set a button to turn the Nav display off for local journeys. Good idea for the random play pre set..
