Re: Updating Sat Nav system

My guess is that they're other parts of Europe. Some downloads seem to have more countries than others.

Re: Driving Modes

I use Sport sometimes. The main thing is that it puts the DSG into sport mode (which you could do from the gear lever). The only other thing I've noticed is that it makes the ACC more responsive - not in terms of distance - that's a different control, but in terms of how quickly it reacts. The ECO m...

Re: dash cam

There's a hardwiring kit available with the Nextbase range - comes complete with the piggy-back thingy for the rear wiper fuse.

Re: drive Mode resets to everyday after a re-started out engine

As a slight aside, I'm pretty sure that the distance setting for the ACC resets to long distance on restart. Perhaps this could be because of WLTP (long distance = safer?) as well.

Re: high frequency sound under bonnet

Yes, I had that today after stopping the engine but staying in the car. It sounded a bit like a very small motor whirring.

Re: KESSY - Checking the car is locked

Keep an eye on the rear indicators when you close the boot. If the car is locked, you get a single flash as the boot locks.

Re: Brakes

This may be totally unrelated, but a couple of weeks ago, my Ateca started making an odd grinding/almost hissing noise, which I realised in the end was probably a small stone trapped against the brake disc somehow. After a few hours it disappeared and never came back. I hope thisx may be the case fo...

Re: Build times/shipping

Mine was built and taken to the ferry port in just a few days, then spent about 3 weeks waiting for a ship. After landing, I had it within a few days.

Re: OBD updates

I bought a gadget called Carista - about £15 from Amazon. It plugs into the diagnostic socket under the dash. You then download the Carista App (free), which runs on your phone and talks to the gadget using Bluetooth. It will show you any diagnostics that have come up, but the main thing is it works...

Re: OBD updates

I bought a similar gadget and did some of the same things, with varied success. The 'fold mirrors on locking' thing is great for me, but I had very mixed results with the mirror dipping on reverse. Sometimes it dipped, sometimes it didn't, and sometimes it stayed dipped till you moved it back up man...
