Entertainment System

Post by FiestaRed » Sat Feb 24, 2018 12:22 pm

Being a poor shopper, I usually sit in the car and listen to the music while my good lady toils around the supermarkets.

In the K, with the ignition turned off, the entertainment automatically switches off after 10 minutes. Does anyone know if you can get it to stay on longer without having the ignition turned on? On the J, there was something in the menu where you could change the length of time the music stayed on but I can't find anything similar on the K menus.

Mine still switches off after 10 minutes, even on auxiliaries Dan.

It was the same on my earlier J Astra but I had the choice in the menu of 10, 30 and 60 minutes.

There must be some settings on the menus somewhere but Vauxhall have just hidden them well. The options on my J Astra were 10, 30 and 60 minutes.

Ivanzu, perhaps Dan has a better choice of music on his system and Intellilink let it stay on for longer.

Mine stays on - can't say it was longer than 10 min - didn't time it, but long enough for a good supermarket shop with me in the car enjoying the USB/CD playback, which is excellent.
