  1. Hi All Does anyone have a discover pro nav system in a Mk7 ? I'm a big podcast listener If you connect a ipod/touch/phone can it list the podcasts within a series in DATE order ? or can this be done from the HD or SD cards ? Thanks
  2. Hi All A bit early I know but i've a couple of questions about the new VW Discover Pro infotainment (cant stand that word!) system as fitted to the new mk7 golf Prehaps someone would be kind enough to reply ones they have got their hans on a real unit 1. If you connect an iPhone 5 can you use both the phone and ipod music/podcast functions through the head unit or would I be better connecting the phone as a phone and a separate ipod via cable or whatever 2. I'm a big fan of podcasts an i'm not an apple fanboy but one of the things they get right is that when they show a list of podcasts in a series they are listed in reverse DATE order and NOT name order. When I connected an iPod to a Mk6 golf they wer listed in name order and there was no way to change it which was very frustrating. Thanks in advance PS no idea why it says BMW 330d by my name ? cant seem to find it in profile. not been on here for a while

  7. DSG Cooking !

    Hi all After an errpr of judgement I needed to reverse about 200 yards up a very narrow very steep very bendy hill If I didn't have DSG and reverse sensors I would have been stuffed and it would have been a good laugh for VW assistance ! It took about 10 mins to get back to the top of the hill with several stop starts (as few as possible but it was "impossible" ) When almost at the top the gear indicator row on the MFD started to flash like a christmas tree ! and I lost drive. I guess this was the DSG box shouting ENOUGH ! your cooking the clutch and you could smell it ! So I switched off counted to 10 and started up again, regained drive to do the final shallow bit of the climb and then went the correct way !! Engine was running for about another 5 mins after "christmas tree" so hopefully had chance too cool gently ! I drove 250 miles home two days later and apart from a smidge more shunt on the occasional change all seemed OK If I take it in will anything show up on the diags ? is a DSG clutch classed as a "wear and tear" item ? can the be changed ? Anyone else managed to do this

  17. DSG or Manual?????

    [ QUOTE ] [ QUOTE ] Why avoid S mode? [/ QUOTE ] Because as others have stated it is a bit frantic for UK roads, and I personally think it revs too high before changing gear (my car only has 3000 mls on the clock so I don't want to redline it too much), but more that I feel it is revving high out of the main powerband, and it is quicker to shift up to make better 'progress' [/ QUOTE ] I agree but you can stlll pull a paddle at anypoint and you get the beneift of bliped down changes and swift upshifts.But if it;s a while between bends and you are not nailing it it doesn't really work It's just a same it's so frustrating at slow speed around town. I understand why but it still drives me nuts I wont use the obvious euphemism but lets just say when it's good it's fantasic but when it's not it drives me nuts
  18. You've obviusly not made it to the new brighton meet venue yet then
  19. DSG or Manual?????

    BS I thought i'd tee that one up for some incomming ! DSG drives me nuts when going slow around town but head out of the city limits, turn off the nanny state, slip into sauce mode and paddle! It's the best fun you can have sitting down with your clothes on !
  20. DSG or Manual?????

    If you like driving slowly get a manual if you like to drive quickly get a DSG

  23. Weight???

    [ QUOTE ] I wouldn't want a bigger car than a hatchback due to increased wheelbase and weight [/ QUOTE ] I cant afford one but I happen to notice the other day that an RS4 is within a few kg of an R32 and is actually narrower if a smidge longer ... with an extra 170 gee gees
  24. MkV Satnav query

    The volume for radio/directions/telephone are all independant (i think) ie when maureen is talking if you change the volume she gets louder/quieter without affecting the radio same with telephone if plumbed in So I think if you just turn the volume down when she is not talking you should still hear her when she as something to say. Or perhaps choose CD and pick a slot with no disc ? HTH
