Re: First reasonoble length drive.... Hmm

Big software update on the way to work this morning. Not sure what that fixed or broke, but I had to pull over twice and let the system reboot which was annoying (whole screen greyed out and told me it could not continue with the update while I was driving). I by default now get in at 5.45am for wor...

There are RGB in the cup holder. Easier to get at.
I prefer my 'no contact' warranty voiding method!

Today's discoveries. FOG = no automatic dimming headlights (they just stay on) and the headlights themselves? Hmm, not all that great if I am honest.

Re: First reasonoble length drive.... Hmm

I'll wire one in. How stupid I'll just stick a strip of LEDs across the top with a sensor of some sort. I should add that I am working on a small PCB that will use a single thin fibre-optic cable to detect the colour of the RGB's in the door panels (I don't think there are RGB anywhere else are ther...

No glovebox light? Is mine not working, or have they actually not bothered?

I fitted my Nextcam back in. I just 3d printed a simple bracket with the same connection 'T' slot and fixed it up behind the rear view mirror.
I will sort the rear one out next, but that will be a bit more involved due to the wiring.

Re: First reasonoble length drive.... Hmm

Don't get me wrong at all. I LOVE my Cupra. I LOVE tech. I build amazing electronic and mechanical props and effects for the film and TV industry for a job. But, I am sorry... these touchscreens detract the driver far more than simple buttons do. They have yet to fine tune this to a safe interaction...
