MEDIA XL/HUD questions

11912 Views 30 Replies 11 Participants Last post by  quibble
An any of you guys help me with a couple of questions.....

1. I can't find where I can choose to have the speed limit on the HUD display. The demonstrator had it. Going through the options the HUD display has everything checked... I would find that so useful to have on the screen when in the city when the speed limits can change in a blink of an eye!

2. When I got in the car this morning I noticed all my saved radio stations had disappeared and my sat nav had reverted back to 'direction of travel' when I had changed it to perspective. Was that a blip or something to keep an eye on?

3. The 'tech lad' at the dealer said I could allocate the 6 buttons on the stereo to various favourites. I'd find having the trip details page etc as useful to find at the touch of a button rather than trying to navigate the options when I'm driving. Anyone done that?

4. Does split screen stay split all the time?

I'm obviously being too lazy to muddle through this by myself!!

Driver Assistant pack? I have CHILI, MEDIA XL, satnav.

what else is involved with DA? Is that the fancy cruise control? I don't have that.

Have I been duped AGAIN???

I wonder if I had used the spare key then to set up the radio stations, only real explanation for it. But I only go out with MY keys as the front door key is on it........
Aw, Washy's such a sensitive wee soul! Nobody go "BOO" .............

Must admit I find it is a little inconsistent too. I know it uses the camera and sensors and would imagine that it does factor speed into the equation too. Ours goes bonkers when we put the car in the garage...
pffffft....kinda glad I don't have it now :D

back to my questions......still a bit confused.....

The profiles......they just come up on the screen as (----) with a tick next to one....leadsme to believe I 'should' be able to call it something, but I can't see how?

If I used the spare key, and called it such for example, and if the OH set bits for his stations, lighting, sat nav/HUD preferences and the like....does it remember the difference? Pretty cool if it does!

and I'm bu**ered if I can get Facebook etc to work! I connected my S4 via a cable and the MINI sees it but I can't seem to be able to do anything......

I'm not usually technophobic .....maybe I am actually getting old......

Hi Donna, I can see info about profiles in the pdf manual in a section called "opening and closing".

It says you can go Settings > Profiles > Options > Rename current profile.

It also says that changes to settings are saved in the active profile. A profile is associated with a key fob. The profile for a key fob is activated when that fob unlocks the car.

Settings include the assignment of programmable memory buttons.

Thanks mini... I'm glad you gave me weeks and weeks (and weeks) to read the manual :|
I don't get that, when I go into profiles I get these options.....

import profile (USB)
Export profile (USB)
*tick* (----)

I look like a wally, keepin on going out to the car with the ipad!!!
But when I jog the wheel again, I get the 'split window' option come up.....

don't know why I'm getting so wound up!

have you got a link to the PDF? Is it the same as the book we get?

I'll get the OH to fix it when he gets onshore, he can fix anything........
Nah, still can't see what's wrong! Anyone else with the touchpad check their systems and see where/if I'm going wrong?......
Does anyone know how to rename a radio station? All of a sudden I have one named "Allen", not what I want!
Sorry....but I just LOLed at that!!! :D:D
