    Re: R62 to N2 via Herbertsdale

    I haven't driven there recently, but it should not be an issue even with a platkar. It is a regular route for local farm traffic.

    Re: Does my Discovery 4 upgrade plan make sense?

    I have tried with two different cables, but none of them are very new. Maybe I should try one out of the box.



    I haven't found any setting like that yet, but will check the manual as well.

    Re: Does my Discovery 4 upgrade plan make sense?

    They updated the radio before the facelift as well. I don't know if it was with the mechanical (gearbox) update in 20136, or separately, but it is definitely much better than the old one.

    Re: Does my Discovery 4 upgrade plan make sense?

    Thanks. Steering wheel controls make a lot of sense if you do not have passengers who can DJ. It is a lot safer not to have to wake up your phone every time you want to pause, skip etc. when driving.

    The free app works fine for me, but the pro version on Android is only R11. At least the developer is very honest about what the app can and cannot do:

    I have no idea why it is so bad in our D4. The volume is very low, so you have to turn it way up to hear anything. I use the same devices (phones) that I use in my Touareg with its aftermarket...

    Thanks for the confirmation on the bluetooth. If it works properly, aux is a non-issue.
    Aux below the elbow is better than next to the kids' feet, if only slightly!

    We have had a 2011 SDV6 SE for a few years. It has not been problem free, but never let us down and there is really no other vehicle on the market that is as versatile. I am therefore...
