  1. What ICE?

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    I last filled up half a tank mid April. Which is kinda typical for me to fill up every 3 months or so, only because I do a long journey (+100 mile round trip) every 3 months or so which forces me to fill up otherwise I think it'd be even longer between fills.
  2. Sat Nav update

    How do you get speed cam alerts?
  3. Sat Nav update

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    I used the method mentioned above. Downloaded the maps dated 2018 from vw website, when I checked the version number in my car it was ECE1 2019/20, so I think they've just forgotten to change the date?
  4. Sat Nav update

    I'm having exactly the same thing happen to me on Mac OS
  5. Nice touches

    A little bulb symbol come on if you don't have your lights set to auto and you ignore the 'switch dipped lights on' warning.
  6. Boot and Petrol cap

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Yes. I have this feature enabled. When you start driving over 10mph all doors will automatically lock. When you take he keys out of the ignition or open the drivers door they will all automatically unlock.
  7. Nice touches

    I've been living off Google maps as I just don't trust the VW Nav at all after using it a few times, it takes aaages to suggest destinations and it can hardly find them anyway, plus the ETA on the VW Nav is always wrong by up to 15mins. Can't wait for iOS12 hopefully no glitches! (hahah who am I...
  8. Not Charging

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Weird. It's started working again. I switched off the granny from the mains. Drove to work. On the way back from work I wanted to test if the battery charged in battery charge mode. I had 14 miles on the gom and it went up to 15 miles so I knew it was working and I switched back to driving in...

    Tried both the granny brick and the other power cable for a power point. Same problem.
  10. Not Charging

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    aaaand it's happened again. Just tried to charge it now and the instead of flashing green it's flashing amber.. Was working fine all this time, not sure why it's playing up again. Guess it's another call to VW in the morning :/
  11. New GTE owner, cabin noise comparison, views sought

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    I've got the 18" wheels on the standard advance. I tend to open the 2 back windows sometimes to get some air in and leave the front two closed. I hear a really weird noise then, and if I have the radio/music playing it sounds really weird. Kind of like when I was a kid and used to talk into a...
  12. "Charging connector not locked"?

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    I had a similar problem where it just wouldn't charge at all - an amber or red light would show. I took it back to the dealers who fixed it in one day and they said it was a loose electrical plug on the connecter which they've refitted correctly and locked in position. Never had a problem since...
  13. Hardwire dashcam

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Didn't want to start a new thread.. How easy is it to hardwire to the fuse box and does it look messy in the front of the car? i.e. does it look weird with a wire coming out the dash(?) going to the 12v?
  14. Wheel cleaning

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Am I correct in thinking that the alloy wheel cleaners that you get are just for the wheel spokes? Can you use it to clean the brake disc too? Should you/How do you clean the brake discs? I find they are getting red/dusty quite often probably because of the regenerative braking/less use of...
