Re: Carista is excellent product for making OBD changes

Re: Digital Dash items size

I tried out that dashboard view with map in the middle with blacked out corners. It didn't last long as my OCD kicked in so it had to revert back... :)

Re: Tyre pressure - standard or comfort?

I leave mine at a comfortable 2.1 bar. (18 inch alloys, On Falken tyres)

Re: Upgrading CarPlay to work wirelessly

Good write-up there iPaul. Almost tempted to trade in my Samsung for an iPhone just for that. :) I'd happily pay 150 quid for the wireless option but I've not come across an Android equivalent on my searches.

The cable also has a lot to do with it. And I've learned that you have to start the car, with the usb end in ...
