Hi all. Newbie here. I have just taken delivery of a new e Niro 4+ (Very luckily I ordered it 2 days before the government grant was withdrawn on cars >£35k).
I’ve only had the car a couple of days, but it’s looking likely this could be the best car I’ve ever had, including a lot of supposedly prestige brands. Spent a bit of time going through the manual, but I haven’t yet seen anything relating to turning off the slightly annoying welcome sound. The dealer told me it can be done, but I didn’t get the chance to ask how.
I’ve also looked through this forum without success, though I guess there may be a discussion on it somewhere. Can anyone shed any light on how this is done, please?
Two other questions if anyone can help:
  • How do you add your Home address in the sat nav?
  • Is there any way to permanently display the driving mode as opposed to just seeing “Eco”, ”Normal” and “Sport” flash up briefly when you cycle through them?
Thanks everyone.

  • It can't be done. Just, before starting the car, fasten your seatbelt and all passengers too.
  • Park your car at your house, press the nav button on the centre console. And on the screen click Home, and follow the steps.
  • Normal is the only one that doesn't display anything. Both the other modes have a permanent name/colour change on your dashboard. Look closely, top middle of dash.

I've got into the habit of pressing the brake and power button the instant I get in. then by the time I'm ready to drive off it's all finished and the irritating safety message on the display has gone as well.

Whenever you ask car sales folk anything they don’t know they virtually always go into this really annoying “make it up as I go” mode. Then the BS flows freely and uncontrollably thereafter. They haven’t got the courage to say “I’m sorry I don’t know but I’ll try and find out for you...”. Car stealerships lost all credibility with me a long time ago. I don’t trust them as far as I can throw them. Peter

The salesman I bought my car off admitted he knew almost nothing about the car model - despite him driving it as a daily
Just handed me the keys and said the equivalent of "go find out"

Worked for me

also when in sport mode the rhs segment of the lhs dial turns a red colour.

I cannot stifle my Korean washing machine either, I get the happy tunes starting and stopping it.
.... same goes with my Samsung washing machine 😟... I know the tune note-perfect now 😀
