Re: My 2018, Carplay & Dual USB Mod

Keep looking for the part. As I said in an earlier post, the same part fits the Grandland X too. There may be a new part number for the later models. My initial research also showed this to be the case; that the same part was available with multiple part numbers.

Re: How to stop navigation pop ups in the speedo screen?

Sorry. I meant the other way around. Whilst the GPS is totally accurate to speed in a straight line the car will deviate by up to 10% below in the UK. So when the GPS is showing an accurate 70mph, the car will show 77mph in the UK. From what you say, it sounds like the KPH in your country is also sh...

Re: How to stop navigation pop ups in the speedo screen?

it's not particularly arbitrary. In the UK, I believe that all speedometers are calibrated to the standard largest tyre wheel combination, and smaller wheels can be fitted with a recalibration. The BUT here is: That a speedometer must read below the actual speed with the exception of Police vehicles...

Re: How to stop navigation pop ups in the speedo screen?

Actually, a GPS speed is the speed that you "were" doing, not what you "are" doing. The latency of receiving, decoding and processing the signal take a little time; especially when travelling around a corner. GPS also works for straight line speed but is not effective when cornering. It is the sole ...

Re: My 2018, Carplay & Dual USB Mod

I don’t think so. As the OP I tried several options before heading down this road. On one hand it might work, as it’s before the modules hub. But then the modules hub might not work correctly.

Re: My 2018, Carplay & Dual USB Mod

I had a chance to look at a Grandland X over the weekend. Looks like the connector is the same on that. But really difficult to access as it's buried in the centre dash below the radio. So, if the ebay link dries up of stock it's worth adding that to the search term.

Not at all. That solved the problem on my J, but who knows what signals the car gets!

Re: All door windows found open.

This happened on my J several times. I eventually discovered that the fob was sending out rogue signal as the battery was getting less and less charge. I believe this has also recently happened on my K too. Not battery related this time though. If you've ever seen the US programme "Bait Car"? I ofte...
