  1. Clearing the Satnav

    Hi, my 2013 car goes back on Friday morning (sadly ending my V40 ownership time) and I have a lot of addresses in the navigation system - how do I clear all previous and stored locations quickly and easily?
  2. New V40 on sale now

    Looks like they've dropped Rebel Blue, a real shame as that's one of the best colours.
  3. Dashboard Info

    Volvo V40 General Discussion
    I wish there was a way to adjust this more as I'd like to see average mpg and range showing but they're split between two displays, so I just leave them all off :-(

    Looks like the 2016 facelift model is now being delivered, with the R Design Pro heading the range.

    If it's a showroom car then the plastic scratching was almost certainly done by the dusters they wipe the cars down in the showroom to get rid of fingerprints etc: dry duster wiping on any surface will just grind the dust particles in rather than removing them like a wet wash would, resulting in...

  9. Radio or media turns on with ignition aaaagh!

    I couldn't see any setting either, ah well - just have to put up with it!
  10. Radio or media turns on with ignition aaaagh!

    I couldn't see anything but I'll double check now, thanks - I thought I'd asked a really daft or unanswerable question as loads looked but nobody replied!
  11. Waterless wash.

    I used to work in a dealership (Ford) years ago that sold Supaguarding for £250, I think the packs cost us about £20. Later, when I worked at BMW, it was nearer £4-£500. Looks great but phew, what a mark-up!
  12. Radio or media turns on with ignition aaaagh!

    On my 2013 D4 R Design Lux Nav whenever I either start the engine, or put the ignition on, the audio system starts automatically playing whatever was on before I turned the car off last time. Even if I turn the radio off then exit the car, or turn the volume manually right down then turn off...
  13. Cant beleive this :(

    Good answer and great knowledge but by, I had a Mazda once that did this so I ended up treating the callipers and putting red hammerite on them - a good few coats solved the problem and they looked pretty good too.
  14. Sensus navigation upgrade.

    According to Volvo here... ...navigation is part of Sensus Connect: "Sensus Connect Sensus Connect has an upgraded user interface with several innovative functions such as cloud-based services...
