Re: Apple CarPlay

Mine is 2018MY but it can be installed on 2017 as long a seat you have the Proffessional system and the HDMI connection in the centre console.

Re: Apple CarPlay

One of the features of 19a is to overcome Bluetooth connectivity issues.

Since mine has had 19a it has been rock solid.

Re: Apple CarPlay

The bottom screen instantly says you have the earlier version which doesn’t support Apple Car Play.

Have you got the HDMI port in your centre console?

If you have then 19a needs to be installed along with the smart phone pack.

If you haven’t got the HDMI port then it can’t be done.

Re: New Si4 DS - Enjoying Petrol again

I had a drive today in a P290 with a re-map to 350bho, and it was just fantastic!

It pulled like a bloody train! 😁

Re: New Si4 DS - Enjoying Petrol again

Be interesting to see if the new Ingenium 3.0 straight 6 will go in transversely.

From what I have seen at the engine plant the new 6 cylinder engine is very compact.

But on the original subject, the diesels are the better tow cars. Can’t argue against that 😉

Re: New Si4 DS - Enjoying Petrol again

My old van was 1600kg’s and I have towed that and my new 1800kg van with the P240.

But I am spoilt with the D240.

Re: Towing a caravan with 240 petrol

It will be a lot quieter than the old 2.2 Diesel engine for sure. The P240 toque is actually 45lb/ft lower than the old 2.2 diesel, and the P240 doesn’t develop its highest torque level until much higher in the Rev range. I am not saying it’s bad, but it’s know where near as good as the D180 2.0 for...
