Hi all,

A real bitter sweet couple of days....first the bitter.

Left the DS in Heathrow POD parking, parked very cautiously to avoid any dings from wayward doors with families inside. Infact, parked with the driver's side open to the access road so no-one would be parking next to me, and came back to a 10cm scratch on the driver's side rear door as below...

Took it to a trusted Dent and Scracth repairers local to me, and they said that it would be a full body shop job with at a minimum the rear and driver's door being sprayed into get a good colour match, and maybe the whole driver's side! Joy....most probably £500-£600.

Took it to my LR dealer, Guy Salmon Ascot, and their body shop guy is getting me a quote but unprompted came out with the same numbers....not fantastic.

Now the sweet....my DS is booked in for an extended stay with LR next week as I go on holiday and want some squeaks, rattles and any campaigns done...

One of their Master Technicians took me into one of the Sales DS that they had there with a very similar spec to mine, and low and behold what I witnessed...

So clearly there is a fix, and we should all be able to get this soon. The Tech could not tell me any details of the fix, but I suppose the good news is that it is imminent and I may have place names on my Sat Nav before I spear off from the UK to Sweden in my DS at the end of August!

Cheers,

Ok, so mine has a town areas checkbox.. It had a software update for something else but that's fried the reverse camera. Obviously different versions out there. Town areas doesn't give place names tho' on mine, other than Nottingham when I drove down south before the s/w update

Just checked - my sat nav now has town / village names, though not city names. Still, an improvement from previous.

How come that happened? Did you have a software update?
I had Q495 applied last week along with Q489. :D

B1ggles, sorry to hear about your pain. Same happened to me at Heathrow with a two day old car. I parked in a far corner where no one else would park, long walk to arrivals. On my return there was a Saab parked next to my new car with corresponding dink in my pristine door from the Saab's passenger door! Cheers, thanks for that!
On a happier note I can see my home town in your Sat Nav screens!

Does it now show speed camera locations after the upgrade?

Are they updates? If so, do they apply to all models or just some?
Both were in the upper box 'outstanding' on Topix against my VIN, so you'd need to check on Topix. Service manager said that Q495 was a S/W update for infotainment screen. I now have Q500 showing for my Auto box - believed to be a S/W update too, but I'm in no hurry as my box is behaving.

No, I think we'll have to sort them out for ourselves.

Well at least you've now answered the question I put to my dealer service manager on 8 July, which he's still not been able to answer. I'll get it booked in as I'd like the town names as I drive to Italy.

Bastards. I hate carparks. They attract the worst sort of scum.

We can't be far away from being able to mount cameras on our cars that will watch for such stupids and record the reg numbers of nearby cars and so on. Nab a few people for leaving the scene of an accident and maybe they'd start to be more careful or at least fess up when they cause damage.
